Welcome to FIXYA

this problems sounds more to me like eaither a power management problem or hard drive

did you try to reboot the computer with the reboot disk?

i would try this first before pulling out the internal battery

Got Dell Inspiron 2650 2002 from a friend, free. Want to restore to factory settings. How? Installed Windows XP and Norton Anti Virus


Hi and welcome to fixya!

There are two ways to restore this machine to factory settings;

First is thru the Recovdery partition in the hard disk itself:

  • 1 Close any windows currently open and click the Inspiron's "Start" button. Select "Shut Down" and choose the "Restart" option.
  • 2 Tap "F8" when the Dell image appears on the screen. Continue tapping the key until the advanced boot menu loads.
  • 3 Scroll down to "Repair Your Computer" and press "Enter" to access the DataSafe local backup screen. Click "Next." Select "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options."
  • 4 Click the "Restore without preserving new or changed files" radio button and click "Next." Click "Next" three more times and click "Restart" to restore the disk drive to its original condition. Follow the on-screen prompts to set your operating system settings.

If the hdd was already repartitioned or corrupted, the second option should work:

  • 1 Insert the Dell recovery disk in your Inspiron's optical drive and close the "AutoPlay" window when it appears. Shut down any other open programs. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
  • 2 Tap "F2" as soon as the Dell image appears on the laptop's screen. Scroll to the "CD-ROM" option and press "Enter." Tap any key when you see the "Press any key to boot" option.
  • 3 Press "Enter" when the setup screen appears. Press "F8" and highlight the Dell's hard drive partition. Press "Enter."
  • 4 Follow the instructions on the screen to choose the Inspiron's operating system options. Click "Finish" and remove the recovery disk from the optical drive. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
Hope this helps!

My dell computer doesn't produce any sounds and norton anti virus when installed doesn't work. Thanks in advance for the Help. noiz


First, go to the microsoft website and download microsoft security essentials

Second, go to dell website and download and install the ac97 drivers for your model of dell, those are required for the sound to work.

Third, uninstall Norton and install the security essentials.

That will give you anti-virus/malware protection, it's free, and works better than Norton.

Then, reboot, let system get all way booted up, then click start, and at the very top on the right hand side, click on Windows Update.

Follow all steps as directed.

That should fix your problem.

Oh, almost forgot, launch Security Essentials and run a FULL system scan before you run Windows update, that way you make sure you are good to go first.

My computer will shut down automatically..


your PC got a Dangerous Virus.
the Virus Shuts down or resets The PC in order to spread (in whole of the PC) more.
so download and install a new anti virus.(Like Nod32 or Norton etc)
then update it and run a full scan.

Network connection prompt error 6: handle is invalid


Hi glamredhel, Norton has removed the virus or Trojan & if you have windows system restore turned on the virus or Trojan will return once the system has re-booted. Open windows device manager & shut off system restore. Re-boot your system & re-scan your system with Norton. In your case Norton did not give you instructions on how to remove the virus. (Norton did that for you).
Once completed check windows update service for a possible update for your LAN. Asus does not have a separate LAN driver listed on Asus web site. The LAN driver is part of the chipset drivers. Remove your modem from the system & any software you installed with it. (If any). Restart your system. (If the system seems fine-good. Shut down the system & re-install your modem & any software. When completed do another windows restart. See if the modem functions (If your modem is either a cable or DSL reset it.
Shut down the system.
Located on the back of the cable modem or DSL modem you will find a tiny re-set button. Unplug the power cord from the modem. Take a pen & press the reset button for 10 seconds. Re-connect the power cord & boot the system. Check for internet connection.

The above are just a few item you should try.
Good luck glamredhel!
Post your findings.

Dell Inspiron 530 randomly shuts down and restarts


Sounds like it could be a virus. Or, a heat buildup problem - are all fans inside machine working? Is the fan inside the power supply operating? Was there any work done inside the computer recently?
If the hdw is all ok, go out and buy yourself a copy of Norton Internet Security 2009 - 1 user lic - $49.99 @ Staples. Do *not* buy any earlier vers. of this software! Install, update it, run computer computer scan - probably will find/remove some/many viruses.

If this helps, please take the time to rate my response to you.
Thanks and good luck.

Explorer.exe uses all available CPU


Norton anti-virus is a resource HOG. Disable it from running at start-up. It may be trying to download updates as the pc is booting. Use AVG anti virus, it is free and works very well.
