Connect an external monitor to the VGA port and see if you get any display. You can also let the laptop sit powered down until it cools (an hour or two) and see if it works after cooling, as that would suggest that the problem is heat related.
Good luck.

Get rid viruses


Hey Camry, if you believe your computer is running slow due to viruses then run an antivirus program. I recommend AVG AntiVirus (it's also free). Before you download it make sure you uninstall other antivirus programs on your computer if you have any. More than one can really mess with your computer. Once you download it, scan your computer. Then scan for malware (most likely you have malware and not virus). Download Spybot or malwarebytes (this should not interfere with AVG) and scan for malware. Then just restart your computer and hopefully it goes a little bit faster. I say little bit because usually there more problems than just malware issues. Such as not enough space on you hard drive. Delete things you do not NEED. Freeing up space can really improve the speed of your computer. Also, if your computer is getting hot (if you feel it or you hear your fan running full speed) I suggest you get a laptop fan. My laptop has no virus or malware and only has half of the memory used and is 5 years old (Dell latitude) but when it gets hot (my average temp for dual core: 75 degrees C). This really slows down my computer. You can download programs that will tell you the temp of your laptop. Also make sure you shut your laptop down once in a while to clear the RAM.
Sorry it is so lengthy but there is so much that one can do to make the laptop go faster. I hope this helps you though, if it does not give me your feedback. Good luck. - Joe.

My display screen goes on and off


I find sleep mode nothing but trouble, eventually corrupts window files over extended use, go into power options, go to stand by and select never and click apply, next go to hibernate "top right" and click, make sure the check box is clear, if not! remove check and click apply and restart your laptop.

My fan does not work. I havwe tried updating the software and it is up to date.What are my other options?


There are two possibilities:

A. Your laptop is simply not getting hot enough to turn the fan on. A lot of laptops are becoming very heat friendly with newer processors requiring less power and producing less heat. Running the fan reduces battery charge faster and all laptops avoid using it as much as possible.

B. Your laptop is over heating and shutting down when you use it. This is easy to spot as the laptop will often not boot back up for 20 to 30 minutes after the first shut down. Or it will let you restart it, but the shut down time gets shorter. If this is the case, the fan is broken or jammed.

Solution is to clean the laptop out with a can of compressed air. You can also use this to spray right on the fan to make sure it is free and will spin. If this does not solve the issue, the fan needs to be replaced.

My Dell Laptop has slowed down considerably. Can


for Total speed boost

laptops overtime become slow so they need a little tlc time to time
I created this method so you can do it yourself.

first’ up delete the filthy files, the internet junk that you don't need
by doing a disk clean'up, simply right click on the hard drive C and
go to proprieties then chose disk clean'up.

after that, delete some hidden programs and stuff you don't use anymore
by going to start, control panel, add and remove programs then delete what you
don't need. especially java updates delete all of them leave just one.

now run your antivirus and scan for any viruses and spams.

after that move'up pictures and files you don't need anymore into dvds or cds.

now run a defragmenter by clicking on start, run, write defrag and run it
then a table will come'up select the C drive and defrag, this will take
around 1h.

now restart your computer and it should be faster.

Computer seems to turn on except for the screan.


You may have gotten a virus that started with the windows openning. Normally use ALT-F4 to shut these screens down fast. Always ensure you are running an up to date virus checker. But, your subsequent actions may have caused irrepairable damage to your OS. Do you have a virus check disk you can start with? Worst case, do you have your windows disk? You may need to re-install windows to get a clean start. If you need to do this but have data that you must not lose, try pressing F8 during startup and starting in safemode with prompt. You can retrieve data in this mode if you need to (if you don't know how, ask, or research command prompt and windows directories).
