Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop

2 Answers

Fast sound My OAP Mum was given a Dell machine from an office. I set it up and connected her to the www and she has really taken to the internet, but when I tried to show her utube or bbc iplayer it all plays fast 'mickey mouse' like. Any clips I send her play like that too so there is obviously something wrong with the sound settings. Can anyone help me to set it up properly for her? Thank you.

    Thank you. I'll look at the clips, see what format they are in but yes, we are using WMP to play clips. But YouTube and iplayer are playing fast too and I don't understand why?

    I'll try that, thank you very much. I'll let you know if it works.

Hi AmanadaB its my pleasure to assist you remember if you are watching any musicvideo in utube, you might have observed it stops in between and a circle going round and round. so turn the sound off and let it play till the end. once done you will see a button which says replay, click on it and this time it will play fine, the video needs to be buffered first..visit the link to download the latest flash player. and i prefer not to use windows media-player 11 its a bit complicated with too many features resulting in confusion and we get irrate!!

Make sure when you send or receive the files they are in a wav format. if you get this mickey mouse effect you are trying to open an mp3 format with a wave generator. Also send your movie formats as a mpeg format. one other thing are you using windows media player if not what are you using? Take care..Be mucho blessed..Mark

Cant watch at higher rate. you tube keeps stopping


If you can't watch at a higher rate it means that your internet connection is not fast enough to buffer/load all the information contained in the video quickly enough to play it in a smooth fashion. Use 240p or 360p, this will reduce the amount of time taken to buffer/load the video.

Another approach would be to consider the purchase of a faster internet connection, or may be if you are using a wireless connection, connect your computer/laptop to your router via an ethernet cable when wanting to watch videos. Ethernet cable would be faster especially over long distances.

Take care!

CAN'T GET TO CHANGE DIALUP SETTING


To make sure settings are not set up to dial go to internet options and click on connections and make sure nothing is in that box. If there is something delete it. Once you check this go to network connections in control panel and make sure there are no dial up connections. If any just delete it. Hope this helps.

My Dell Dimensio 2400 keeps on hangin up when surfing theinternet


Sounds like your computer is lagging while surfing. Really nothing you can do to completely fix it. The older the PC gets and the more advance the www gets there is going to be problems. Reason why, is because no matter how good your internet connection is or how fast that does not matt because if the computer can't support it then its gonna lag and freeze up well surfing. But, the first thing I would do is open up internet explore and click on tools and internet options. Clean out the cookies, temp files and everything that you can on that window. Second run a disk clean up, which is in your start menu, apps and system tools. Let that run and then make sure all little boxes are checked in the window and click clean/ok. That will clean out alot f things that could be slowing the PC down and making it lag. If its still doing what you have explained then I would run a registry cleaner. Can find one online. If all that fails, then I'm sorry but you will need to do some upgrading to your PC. Well good luck.

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 desktop, around 5-6 years old. It is connected to the internet through a cable modem then through a wireless router, but it is connected with a LAN line. If I try to connect to...


Sounds like the actual ethernet adaptor (hardware) may be out but first I would run a really good spyware and see if it is infected. This one works really great (see link at bottom) although, it is not free but you can download, installl and it will run scan and tell you if you have malware (which is why it will not connect). It only cost 30 bucks to purchase which is reasonable to take off the malware and get back online. Beats a techs fee.

If there is no sign of malware, then the hardware is out and you will need to replace. These can be purchased at Wal-mart for under 60 bucks. Hope this helps!

Can't watch videos, play games, listen to music.


Your computer will need some upgrades. This dell has a max memory of 2 gigabytes. The memory type is pc2700. You need to install a PCI video card. Newegg.com has a decent one for about 40 bucks. 2 gigabytes of memory should cost about 70 bucks. If the dell doesnt have a DVD drive you will have to get one too. <less than 30 bucks> Then and only then will this computer be able to play games or play videos.
