Sure..that's maybe from ESD(electrostatic discharge) which can wreak may wish to wipe the USB cables with a non static cloth(paper towel works fine..and 'ground' the outside of those connections, and then, connect them before turning the computer on.

OTOH, you may also need a bios update from the maker of your computer...

Hi there, over the past few weeks my computer keeps warning me that my local disc (C drive) is full. I've deleted all the songs/t.v shows off of my computer but it just keeps filling up. I've tried to...


You don't mention which Operating System you have but you should scan for malware and virus. If you are infected that would explain why the drive keeps filling up and maybe even why your programs won't uninstall or updates complete. Update your AV and boot to safe mode to run the scan or do an online scan if you can, there are few good online scans but one which springs to mind is Also do a scan with free edition of MBAM

Once you have done scans and removed any infection you might have clear your temp files using either Disk Clean-up from All Programs > Accessories > System Tools or a 3rd party disk cleaner if you have one (don't use any registry cleaners). Make sure you clear at least Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, Temporary Internet Files and Recycle Bin.

After doing that turn your system restore off for your C:\ drive then turn it back on again.

Check to see if your updates will install now.

If you run into any problems send a reply here.

KDS Laptop!?

Wow. Never heard that one before. Here are a few ideas as they come off my fingers: 1. Try a reload of the operating system, what is referred to as a repair install. 2. You could try booting from a diskette and then try to find out what is wrong with the recognition of the mouse. 3. Perhaps hooking up a usb mouse? 4. Disable the laptop mouse in the bios, which hopefully you can get to before the hang. Take your pick and work from easiest to hardest. The boot looks like it is freezing on the laptop mouse, so if you want to get past that portion of the boot, you have to resolve it or blow away the code that is not recognizing the mouse, if you presume that the mouse is funcitonal. If not, fix the mouse. Hope this helps Karl

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
