Did the computer come with Norton Anti virus on it, as a trial?, and then maybe you didnt use it and got mcafee instead and didnt remove the norton.

That could produce the symptoms you're saying.

Also, if your computer only has 512 mb of ram, and you added ANY software, then you do not have enough memory to run the system. It will be slow and freeze at times and have to reboot.

Dell inspiron one touch screen stuck in diagnostic mode


HI,
You were correct in pressing ctrl+f11 but perhaps you did not press at the correct time. If in following these first two steps you do not get the recovery console, it may not have been installed on your computer.

1 Turn on the computer.
2 When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
3 In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, clickRestore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlightRestore, and then press <Enter>.
4 When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.

The Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.

When the restore process is complete, the following message will appear:
The system recovery process was successful.
5 Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.
The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
Thanks.

Gateway gt5453e constantly freeze or fun slow


If you have more than one virus protection program installed, get rid of all but one - they'll fight each other for system resources. Windows security programs need a lot of resources, so make sure you have at least 1.5 GB of RAM installed.
I would bet that if you look at the hard drive light when the machine is slow or seemingly stalled, it will be on almost continuously, meaning the system is spending a lot of time waiting for the hard drive. You can check this by typing <ctrl>-<alt>-<del> to open Task Manager, then clicking the Performance tab to check on drive and CPU activity.
Windows XP is pretty much broken on older machines - it is too overloaded with security patches to run well with most anti-virus programs. Upgrade to Windows 7 if you can afford it (but make sure you have at least 2 GB RAM installed, maxing out at 4 GB is better).

My pc.. desktop is very slow.. its a windows vista


You may want to look into upgrading your RAM if there is less than 2GB installed. This is a recommendation that I have found in working with several PC's running this Operating System. Also, you would want to run disk clean up and remove any temporary files that Windows finds. Deleting any other temporary or unused files from your PC on a regular basis should increase system performance. In addition, if these steps do not solve your problem, you may want to consider upgrading to a faster performance hard drive (preferably a SATA II with a 32MB cache). As a last resort, you may look at your CPU to see if there is an upgrade for it, as well. Keep in mind that Vista is a resource hog and can slow down a PC within just a short period of time.

My dell inspiron e1705 will power on for tenmin beeps then freeze


Sounds like it's a motherboard or processor issue. Why, well when you said it's slow and freezes, sounds like either the motherboard or processor (I've had this issue with both) and as a long shot it could be a hard drive dieing.. (stops spinning intermittently)

My compaq laptop freezes after 30 minutes


It sounds like an overheating problem. When it is booted, does it run ok other than just being slow? Check your cooling fan and make sure it is running and not stopped up. That is a number one symtom of overheating is freezing and rebooting by itself. Have you expierenced that problem also? There is a free program called "Motherboard Monitor 5" that will monitor the temp for you and set off an alarm when it is getting to hot. Check that problem first. Hopes this helps!
