Startup very slow on my new dell 660 desktop


If it is updating it will take a while to load updates. Once all the updates are installed it should Boot and shut down faster. Just let it finish the updates. do not disturb until finished.

Problems loading OS in Gateway desktop


Normally installing the os on a different mechine, and then putting into another pc dosent work.

If the hardrive is the oringinal drive, which came with the system, and you want to install xp on, you will have to use a dos disk with fdisk on it, delete all partitions on the drive and create a new partition, then start loading windows, it will give you the option to format the drive for nt(ntfs) file system and setup windows.

If you do that and it still gives you protecting files error, you will have to take the side panel of the computer tower, unplug from the mains and take the cmos battery out for about 30 secs, put the battery back in, plug in the mains and reboot the computer, start loading windows again
Hope this helps and post back if you need further assistance.

Runs slow sticks


The link I've give you below is linked to CCleaner which is a registry cleaner for your computer which basically removes un-needed data e.g. Internet History, Internet cache, computer logs and it also fixes shortcuts or any files which are not working correctly.

I use this software on my computer every time I shut down and it has made my computer work much faster.

Here's the link: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download you can download free if you select the 'alternative download'.

Dell pc to slow


Yes, you can get (any) help. You must run a Registry Cleaner. It will clean your Windows registry which seems to be having irrelevant entries. You can down load one free from www.download.com or you can search google for free registry cleaners. I had the same problem and my laptop used to take over 20 mins to boot. I cleaned it with one RC and now it gallops like a new laptop. I do not think that you have any hardware problem.

Whenever my computer starts up and shows the Windows XP logo it shuts down and shows me while starting up that windows wasn't started up rite. Than after a week it COMPLETELY messes up. I've tried a FULL...


It is one of 2 things....

1. It is overheating. Overheating will cause the computer to randomly shut down. You can usually decifer if it is overheating by trying to put the computer back on after it shuts down. For example , start it up...let it shut down...then try to put it back on again...if it doesn't come on at all, or if it shuts down even quicker then the previous time, you are most likely looking at an overheating issue. To remedy that you want to open up the case, clean out all of the dust with a compressed air can (be very careful not to tip the can, it will spray liquid), and verify that all of the system fans are running.

2. Could be any type of hardware failure - from the power supply to the hard drive. If you have completly ruled out the overheating issue, I would just take it to a shop to get diagnosed.

How can i restart my computer all over just like brand new


you need to go ahead and let it start in sfae mode, check any changes that you made recently to your software & hardware, programs and drivers.
This is normal for windows to open this way IF you have shut the computer down in a way windows thinks there was a problem , or is a problem.
In safe mode windows does not load all the third party software , just enough to get windows up so you can find a problem.
Soo let it start in safe mode , if you find no problems after ot starts, shut it down correctly and restart, it should start the second time normally if there are no problems.
Post here again if it keeps up.
Regards!
