This is probably due to malware, but here are a few things you can do:

  1. Download and run Hitman Pro. This will run several anti-malware utilities to clean up the machine.
  2. Download and run PerfectDisk. This defragmentation utility is MUCH better than Windows' native program.
  3. Click Start->Run. Type in "msconfig" without the quotes into the box and click OK. Click the Startup tab, and take a look at all the programs that run at your computer's startup. Be VERY careful because you cannot just remove everything. Some things are necessary for your computer to run, so if you don't know what it is then leave it be. Uncheck anything you know you don't want starting such as Instant Messaging programs like AIM or MSN or regular programs such as Adobe or Java. They are notorious for running processes at startup and really aren't necessary. If you want a good list of startup processes then check out http://sysinfo.org/

Sounds like sled motor [the motor that help to spin the disc inside] is faulty. This is purely a mechanical fault. Contact any service technician. The CD drive mechanism should be taken out from the device, for repair. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

How to tell if fuel line is frozen starter turns but doesnt crank engine


in extremely cold weather, you may need an engine block heater or lighter weight oil. you can verify that the gas is flowing if you disconnect the main gas line to the injector/carberator, attempt crank, and see whether fuel squirts out or not. if its cold enough to freeze gasoline, it could be cold enough to freeze oil, anyway

When Norton is active it scans the computer for viruses and this will slow the computer down until it finishes.
You computer will improve with more RAM especially if has 512Mb of RAM.

Facebook keep freezing up everytime I scroll down the page with the mouse, and is extremely slow when trying to post comments. Everything else on the computer is working fine.


Try using facebook in a different browser and see if that solves the problem. You could have a bad addon or toolbar thats causing the browser to freeze up.

I'll start my IBM R50 everything will load click on anything it freezes up can't do anything what could this be and best solution to fix this. When a program opens it runs extremely slow.


You probably have had virus activity for some time, and it has done alot of damage to your Operating System. I recommend that you perform a System Recovery which will return the system to Factory Condition.

My sound also crackles and I have a very slow windows startup


That's most likely a virus that's gotten into your sound device drivers. Try updating/reinstalling them. Try Dell's website or a search engine for exact drivers and how to install them.
