The B130 is notorious for overheating which can slow the system up big time.

Does it get hot?

Otherwise you could be experiencing an issue with the hard drive.

What version of Windows are you running and have you ever burned an ISO before? (If you don't even know what an ISO is, don't worry it's just a question I ask to gauge your computer skills.)

I just upgraded memory and my b130 only reads the A slot


Re-seat the memory modules. If that doesn't work try swapping the modules to see if one is defective. If both modules work in slot A then you have a damaged slot B memory slot and the motherboard needs to be replaced.

Dell 531 Multiple problems: - Running slower and slower by the day - Keeps trying to do automatic file backups, but then shows an error stating that my backup disk space is low


Hi,
I think you need to increase the Physical Memory of your computer... If the physical memory is less, system goes slow...

You can increase your available physical memory by either adding more memory chips or by deleting existing software or files. Pls follow this step: Go to RUN, type WINMSD.EXE You can able to see the available physical memory. If the memory is very less then you need to increase the space as I mentioned above. Pls let me know if this doesn't work.

How can i find out how much memory, how fast my laptop runs, info on my dell inspiron b130?


right click on your computer and click properties.
in the page that opens you will see your computer details.
the speed is measured in GHz and memory in GBs or MBs.
usuall a memory of 1GB RAM and above is consider good.
speed varies according to your processor. for example a pentium 4 3GHz is slower thatn a core 2d duo processor with 2GHz.

Frustratingly slow


You should bumb your memory from 256 to at least 512, and better yet if at 1024.

SYSTEM DOESN'T RECOGNIZE NEW MEMORY MODULE


Memory modules must be the correct type and speed, and be within the specifications for the laptop. Just because it fits in the slot doesn't mean it will work.

The Dell inspiron B130 has 2 slots. Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. if you tried to insert a 2GB module, it will not work.

If the module is within these parameters, remove and re-seat the memory, and try swapping the modules from one slot to the other. It may be a bad slot.

Well start a bit slower then.
go into the bios at startup F2, and navigate around does it freeze there. if no then
start windows in safe mode F8 when windows logo shows.
freezing ?
If its not freezing then turn off the startup programs.
Start/run/msconfig and then uncheck load startup items
and start normally, click the dont show me this again /ok
any freezing.
If its freezing you may have a hardware issue.
if you have 2 sticks of memory remove on and or /reseat them
boot the dell diagnostics cd and check the cpu and memory.
report back
