Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
My computer is slow and after using it for half an hour, it freezes (the mouse wll no longer control the cousor) and all applicatio on it will cease to work until i swithch it off from the power burton
If its windows XP try doing a MSCONFIG:-
Here's a good example. On my computer I have a mess of MP3s and I listen to those MP3s with a program called WinAmp. For some reason or other, WinAmp decided that it should always be running on my computer even when I am not using the program. That's silly. To prevent WinAmp from automatically starting every time I boot my computer, I ran MSCONFIG and unchecked "WinampAgent." That's it.
Remember, disable only those programs that you recognize and don't need to have running all the time. When in doubt, leave it on.
5. Click on the OK button.
6. A message will pop up telling you that you must restart your computer before these changes will take effect. Click on "Yes" and your computer will automatically reboot.
7. That's it! Your computer should now boot faster and crash less.
And if you ever want to turn on any of the startup items you disabled with MSCONFIG, just run MSCONFIG again.
when your system restarts you will get a prompt that you have used systemconfiguration utility
do remember you put a chkmark in the box which says do not show me this message in future and then click ok.

It could be as simple as two conflicting programs. Go in and remove programs that you don't use, and get rid of any multiple programs that you don't need, such as multiple tool bars, anti virus, spy ware, etc.. If this doesn't cure it, then it may be a hardware problem. A very common cause for this is a memory chip going out. However it could also be the fan not working properly and the machine is getting hot. Rarely, but not unheard of, is the processor going out.
