Hi,
Do you have any antivirus program installed? If you have, check if it set to scan during startup. This might be the reason why your computer is slow during startup since a full computer scan can definitely eat up memory usage.
Hope this helps.

    Yes it is the problem. Please disable the Scan at boot, as you don't really need it. Avast has real time protection anyways.

I want to factory reset a mini 10 but screen is broke(i am using t.v) im afraid to start the process and then not be able to see anything after


Yes that could be horrid. Try setting the tv as your only screen. If you go to l settings Navigate to the "Start" menu, and click it once to open it. Select "Control Panel." Click "Adjust Screen Resolution" under "Appearance and Personalization." Click the drop-down arrow next to "Multiple Displays" in the window that opens. Select "Show Desktop Only On 2." Windows will disable the Mini 10 display and use the external monitor as the primary screen Read more: How to Run an External Monitor on a Dell Inspiron Mini 9 ' eHow.com http://www.ehow.com/how_6821296_run-dell-inspiron-mini-9.html#ixzz1hFvetaud

All i do is click shut down but it doesnt do anything at all. what should i do?


CTL,ALT.DEL select task manager under there you should see that there is a program that is not shutting down thus causing your issue. You need to shut it down before shutting down the computer again. Otherwise hold down the power button to FORCE SHUTDOWN.

Thanks and do be considerate when leaving feedback and ratings.

How do I restore factory settings on my dell inspiron mini 1012?


  1. Restoring a Dell System Running Windows XP.

    Turn off and reboot your computer. When you see the Windows flash screen, depress "CTRL" and "F11". Be sure to press them simultaneously and release them simultaneously.

    Select "Restore" in the "Dell PC to restore by Symantec" window and press "Enter".

    Highlight and select "Confirm" when the message shows that you wiill lose all data if you continue. This will begin the restore process. It usually takes about 10 minutes or so. When it's done, you should receive a message that states the system recovery process was successful.

    Select "Finish" to complete the process and restart your system.
  2. Step 6 Restore a Dell System Running Windows Vista

    Shutdown and restart your computer. Keep pressing "F8" until you see the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. You must depress the keys before the Windows Logo screen appears. If you wait until after the screen appears and then press "F8", it's too late and you'll have to reboot the system and try again.

    Navigate to the "Repair your computer" option

    Select the appropriate language and click "Next".

    Sign onto the system as an administrator. Without administrative privileges, you will be unable to perform the system restore.

    Select "Dell Factory Image Restore" and click "Next".

    Place a check in the check box next to the text that says "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore System Software to factory condition" and click "Next".

    Click "Finish" to complete the process. This will reboot your computer.

Dell Mini 10 constantly sticks - especially on the internet. Scrolling through a page, or trying to type in address bar.


Do the following: ctrl alt delete Selcet task manager. Click on the processes. Check to make sure any extra process are running. Do not stop anything you are not sure of though.

The wallpaper shows up but the icons don't show up. I cant get to any programs.


Does the start button work?  If not, run ctrl-alt-delete and go to processes.  Check for explorer.exe.  If it is not there, click on New Process and type EXACTLY explorer.exe and hit enter.

Delayed keyboard response on Dell Inspiron E1705 Laptop


Is the mouse response sluggish as well during these times?

In most cases, it means the computer is busy with another process. The keys you press stay in the keyboard buffer until the CPU has time to process them.

Check your CPU busy time when this happens. In Windows XP, press ctl-alt-del to start the task manager, the select the processes tab to see if one process is tying up the system (by % of CPU), or press the performance tab to see CPU usage. If it is pegged at close to 100%, something is tying up the system.
