If you are using Windows OS, open the Computer or My Computer icon, then right-click the drive where you want to run scan disk and click Properties. Click the Tools tab, then click Check Now under Error Checking. You can then select the option to automatically recover bad sectors and repair errors before the actual process is started.

Identity safe is gone on Inspiron 15-R laptop

Correction The Identity Safe is still there, the data contained in it is gone.

This is a problem that has many possible causes. It can not be sorted out in one step.


1) Run a Full Virus Scan
2) Run Scan Disk
3) Run Disk Defrag
4) Run Memcheck from the dos prompt

If all results are ok run System Restore or Restore from a System Backup.

If the Virus Scan shows a Problem than follow the onscreen instructions to clear the problem.

If the Disk Scan shows a problem than you can ether follow the onscreen instruction to clear the problem if it is a software problem (usually requires format of the hard drive, so backup your data) or if it is a hardware problem you may need to buy a new Hard Drive.

If Disk Defrag shows a problem you need to replace the Hard Drive.

If Memcheck shows a problem you need to replace your RAM, however this is unlikely unless you are getting BSOD's on a regular basis.

Feel free to contact me for further instruction.

My system is running slow

Slow computer If you have a virus program installed, it is most likely is running a scan on your hard disk. It can slow down your computer especially if you have a large hard drive. After scanning is completed then the computer will be faster.
To make your computer (hard disk) lean and mean, uninstall any programs you do not use.
Also you need to maintain your hard disk by running Disk Cleanup this will remove old temp files and old compressed files etc.
This will reduce the number of files the virus scanner has to scan. Plus running Defrag. this makes your files contiguous so the system can access files off the hard drive quicker because it does not work as hard.. Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out at least once a month.
If you have 512Mb of RAM installed then installing more RAM will speed up your computer. After installing your graphics card, you may need to disable the built-in graphics card in the BIOS for the new graphics card to work properly.

What is the solution to "Exception EOleSysError module at 00058E75."

Try this:

Run a CheckDisk:
How to run Chkdsk at the command prompt

(Windows XP)
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In Open, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
  3. Use one of the following procedures:
    • To run Chkdsk in read-only mode, at the command prompt, type chkdsk, and then press ENTER.
    • To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/f, and then press ENTER.

      Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)Type Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.
    • To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/r, and then press ENTER.

      Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)Type Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

      Windows Vista & Windows 7
      You can launch CHKDSK using two methods (the former being the easiest):

      Graphical Interface:

      Open the Computer option from the start menu, which will display all of the drives available to scan on your PC:

      Then, right click on the drive you wish to scan for errors and select Properties:

      Now click the Tools menu, then Check Now under the error-checking section:

      You have several options within the check disk tool. It is always recommended you leave the "automatically fix file system errors" box checked, as this repairs and problems found. If you want to perform a deeper scan, tick "scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors". This second option takes longer, but is worth doing if you suspect a drive problem. Once you are configured, click Start:

      If you try to check a disk that is currently in use, you will receive a message asking if you wish to schedule a scan. Accepting this will perform the scan next time you restart your PC:

      Good Luck!

Your disk must be full or you need to do a 'defrag' on the volume where you are storing the data. Initially it is stored in the buffer and when the disk writing is slow, scanning speed is affected. Clean the disk for faster scanning.
