Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards


Remove the memory modules from their slots.
Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors.


Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth.
Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components.


Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r


Allow the pins to dry.
They will air dry in a matter of minutes.


If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory.
If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.

Check the memory module and memory slot contacts.
They are either copper tin or gold.
The colour will tell you which they are.


Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact.
Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard.

Reseat the memory modules.

You should hear an audible click when they are in place.
Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard.

Either spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer,
or take the CD-ROM with the files to another computer.
Spend $10 to buy a 4Gbyte USB memory-stick.
On the other computer, copy all the files from the CD-ROM disk to the memory-stick.
Move the memory-stick to your computer, and install from the files now on the memory-stick.

I tried to put a disc into the computer and the cd went into the wrong slot inside my computer and is now stuck in my computer. how can i get it out?


there should be a small pinhole at the front of the drive, push a thin object fairly hard into this hole and this should push the cd bay out enough for you to pull out, be careful when pulling it out so as not to damage the cd and or drive, good luck

MY PC LAPTOP REALSLOW


Unfortunately "real slow" is a subjective analysis and I would need to know what you are comparing it to before going much further. Lots of things could be impacting the performance of your PC or you could just own a slow system (compared to your friend's) and you may need to adjust your expectations (or buy a new PC). However, adding memory can speed up a machine. Clearing out unused files and defragmenting the hard disk will also help. There are lots of tweaks you can do to XP and Vista but they usually only result in marginal performance improvements. You may have a bunch of malware (virus or spyware) running, you may have multiple anti-virus programs, multiple firewall programs, etc. Some people go overboard, not realizing they don't have the extra CPU power needed to run all those programs. Performing a recovery will completely clean out your system and restore it to the factory settings. If the system's original performance from the factory was good this will get you back to that point. (Be sure to back up your data files and system settings before starting the backup though!!)

Dell Inspiron 1200 no POST


There are two memory slots on this model, but there is no "Onboard" memory. Without the memory that you removed, your laptop will not post. It sounds like a dead motherboard issue to me, especially since you have pretty much torn it down to barebones. Rarely, this can also be caused by the processor but it is less likely. Unfortunately, since you cannot keep it running, there isn't much chance of diagnostics. I hope this helped.
