How do i speed up my older pc laptop?

2005 relic PC day. XP the virus magnet slow doing what? , guess ALL. all do that , with HDD for sure , HDD slows with age, is a fact. all old PCs are slow compared to new PC so buy newer better PC reliable /safe only happens in hands of pro, why want that ? and ask here we can';t turn the screw driver and not wreck FFC cables.! if ram is too small buy more ram, none told what compression?, that is not good, never compress the hdd. wow ! no OS told we can not guess OS, windows what? causes of slow, all. (besides scrap it) no order.
  • HDD is bad failing smart tests. (and will die soon) 10 years old hdd are mostly all bad now, you are the LUCKY ONE.
  • HDD is full , clean out files, not needed, like downloaded endless videos for sure.
  • put in SSD boot drive, and reload the OS to it. or clone HDD.
  • more Ram ? 2GB is max on this Pig gaming.etc. OOPS fail.
  • remove not used APPS for sure in the startup folder,for sure.
  • in task manager, make sure ram is not full and CPU not overloaded to 100% if yes this must be cured.
  • I bet RAM is fiull, 2GB is tiny. easy to fill up , the CPU is slow a Duo processor, Intel Core Solo processor!
  • do not clone any bad HDD that fails smart tests.
  • this XP PC the last one on earth running and is infected as all are and infections make PC run slower or worse, there is always worse here,(topic)
  • it ran for 10 years, be happy, buy i3 and up based PC. win

Dell Inspiron 1526 LCD inverter unable to turn on

Go on ebay and buy a new inverter for less than $10. Go on youtube to see how to replace the dell inspiron 1526 lcd inverter or the dell inspiron 1526 lcd screen. I put the lcd screen on because sometimes the problem might be your screen. If things don't work after installing the new inverter board, then buy a new lcd screen off ebay. The inverter board and screen are easy to install. Just go on youtube.com to find a video that walks you through it. The inverter sits at the bottom of the lcd screen. Some are screwed on, some are welded onto the screen, some are held by a small piece of tape. Even if you have to pry the old one off, just put the new on on held by a small piece of tape. 10results for Dell Inspiron 1526 inverter board

My wifi internet connection keeps

Check the signal strength, in many cases of there is only one or two bars of signal it will cut in and out and make it impossible to do many things .

Using one of the video listed take the keyboard off and see if the error goes away: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=dell+6400+disassembly&atb=v61-3_a&ia=videos If it does, then replace the keyboard, if not then you are looking at some more troubleshooting with safemode, eventviewer, etc

Why turbo c does not work in windows 7 64 bit

You're a programmer you should know this. Turbo C is a 16 bit application. 64 bit operating systems cannot run 16 bit applications. You need to get the 32 bit version of Turbo C or upgrade to a newer compiler.
