OMG! there are tons of reasons NOT to use the geek squad. I get geek squad victims in my shop every week. This can probably be figured out remotely- but if it came from BB- I would just about BET it is norton, or spysweeper as the root of the problem, or perhaps an incompatable program on Vista. There might be a problem with the motherboard too- and checking on Dell's site to see if your unit is in warranty will yield a free tech support from thm if the service tag shows a valid warranty. If replacing Norton and spysweeper with a less problematic program like AVG FREE edition (which works a lot better and is FREE!) does not help- there are other cheaper local or nationwide helpers that can fix this remotely (like me)

Why does my Dell Inspiron 531 keep shutting down?


cpu maybe overheating, check all fans are working, maybe a fault in motherboard. There should also before an error report log on your operating system which might give you a clue. try putting your hard drive into another pc (as a slave drive) and scan it for viruses before putting it back into your pc as the master again.

I have the hp inspiron 531s.Can i burn cd or dvd??


Yes your computer has a DVD writer... It should have the software to burn DVDs and CDs


The Dell Inspiron 531 is a desktop personal computer with a Microsoft Windows operating system. An Inspiron equipped with a CD burner can be used to record audio discs using Windows Media Player, which comes installed on the Inspiron as a standard part of the software package Dell loads onto its computers. Blank, recordable discs and pre-recorded audio CDs are the only supplies needed for the project.

Dell Inspiron 531 gets me crazy..


hello, sounds like memory issue, I would say if you have more than one stick of memory in it remove one at a time and try it again.
also while you are at it reset BIOS by remove battery from motherboard and/or switching jumper setting.

hope it helps.

Windows Explorer sends continuously error messages


Turning off thumbnails will probably stop you getting that error

DO:
Open Control Panel > Folder Options > Always show Icons, Never Thumbnails

However, this isn't actually fixing the problem.

Do you have Nero installed by any chance?

If so try:
Open Computer > System Drive > Program files > Common Files > Ahead > DSfilter.
Rename "NeroVideoProc.ax" to "1NeroVideoProc.ax"
Also rename "NeVideo.ax" to "1NeVideo.ax"

And then reboot.

I have vista on my computer and when i try using windows movie maker i get a window which says windows host process(rundll32) has stoped working it then closes down movie maker. can you suggest a cure for...


Run.dll is father of all dlls which controls Control panel , Host application process and if it get corrupted better to reinstall or restore your system. If you know how to restore the dll you can do that way also but not sure the version of run.dll you are copying in to windows system32 files might match.

Secure all your wanted data before you try to do anything above I mean first you back your wanted files.

Thanks Hothawk
