Question about Dell InspironTM 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

Applications stop working.


I have a dell inspiron 1501, for the past 4-5months I have constant problem with my laptop, the applications such as internet explorer / firefox / yahoo messenger etc stop responding, i can access other applications but once i start them they too stop responding to any input. I checked for virus / malware / spyware - none found, I reinstalled my os couple of times (windows XP), didn't help either. I don't know what else to do. Any help is appreciated.

There are about a 150 million reasons NOT to work.

About the only thing you might try is to remove the memory cards, clean the contacts with alcohol and swabs, let it dry and reinstall it.

You could also have a bad memory chip. This is not uncommon with the amount of memory we now use.
Been there, done that.

How do I download pictures from my LG 800 G to my dell Inspiron laptop?


You may want to connect the data cable/ transfer cable provided along with the LG 800 g cellphone to the Dell Inspiron laptop. Then simply use a copy- paste method from the phone to the laptop. This should help but if this doesn't help then let me know what happens.

Thanks and Regards.
