Did you replace the hard drive? It is quite possible there is an issue with the drive at that age. YOu could try an application called "SpeedFan" or "HD Tune" and run a S.M.A.R.T test on it. This will help you determine the drive status. You can run a benchmark with "Hd Tune" and determine the speed of the drive. If you want to post your results, I will certainly help out further.

First check your total hard drive free space. The little memory space can cause for slow system. You can perform 'Disk Cleanup' utility to delete temp files & allocate free hard disk space. For perform 'Disk Cleanup' utility, go to 'Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools ->Disk Cleanup'.

Perform disk defragmentation in your HP system to manage saved file memory location in a single place so that it can access faster.

You can perform 'Error Checking' utility to check for any issue in your Dell Inspiron hard disk. These hard disk errors are generally not noticeable but it can cause for slow hard disk or slow computer.

It is recommended to perform virus removal program to scan your system at daily basis to check for any virus and malware in your HP system.

You can also increase your RAM if you are not satisfied by the general performance of your Dell Inspiron.

Initially, my fan would run fast and then slow. Then, it began to shut off frequently by itself; the monitor would state "monitor sleeping." Now, the CPU will not power on at all. Even after having a...


Fixing the problem would have been to change the fan when it started to fail. The bearings were probably going out and causing it to labor and slow down. When the fan quit altogether that was the big flashing warning sign "Do not run till you fix me" type of warning. CPU's develope tremendous amounts of heat. Without a fan there to cool it, it could have damaged something.

1. Get a new fan
2. Unplug all add on cards
3. Unplug hard drives, floppys and cdrom
The only thing that should be plugged into motherboard is the video and ram and keyboard. Unplug power supply for 1 minute. Make sure the power supply master switch on the back is on. Try to start the computer. If it starts then start connecting your drives back one at a time and any addon cards. If it doesn't start you may be looking at replacing motherboard or CPU. I've never seen an Intel CPU fail even from heat but there is a first for everything.

Slow laptop dv 9208 w vista


If you're having Vista, you will need 1gb RAM minimum. Vista is resource intensive, concentrated more on graphics, and a lot of Hardware compatibility issues. Windows XP is fine and better as of now which runs great with 1GB of ram and a pretty processor of 2.0 ghz ...If you think of speeding up ur lappy better go for XP .increasing ur RAM will increase the number of apps that you can run productively at a time.

My computer is very slow - not responding


Sounds like you have some spyware on your system.. Recomend that you download adawre (free from lavasoft), spybot (free software) and c-cleaner (also free)

Run c-cleaner first , then adaware (keep running till it is clean, sometimes it takes up to 4 times to get them all) -then run spybot, run it till it is clean (again sometimes it takes several runs to clean it all)
Then run c-cleaner again.

Try this first. If does not help, write back and we can go from there.

You are confusing Hibernation, where the RAM is written to the HDD and power is turned off without unloading the OS, with Screen saver (control panel - display).
