I have the hp inspiron

Yes your computer has a DVD writer... It should have the software to burn DVDs and CDs


The Dell Inspiron 531 is a desktop personal computer with a Microsoft Windows operating system. An Inspiron equipped with a CD burner can be used to record audio discs using Windows Media Player, which comes installed on the Inspiron as a standard part of the software package Dell loads onto its computers. Blank, recordable discs and pre-recorded audio CDs are the only supplies needed for the project.

I have been trying to increase the print size one

Right click on the desktop, SCREEN RESOLUTION, lowering the resolution will increase the text size. You can also check VIEW on that menu and select large icons.

Text size is the inverse of screen resolution.

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

How do you install a hard drive

Larry provides great answer up there ^^^ which is better down here. Larry Ng Jun 23, 2022 NO PC told (dell has 10000 models) no OS told, windows what"? no drive told. my wild wild guess is the boot drive is locked. and you are attempting and ******* act. to it. like deleting key parts of a running OS (windows) (like deleted tires on rims of 85mph moving car, fails) no real goal told, but the nebular "install HDD" one can add a 2nd drive easy or any of 1000s of external HDD models or external or internal, SSD or even a thumb drive. (vast) (just 2 steps in fact) but the boot drive , change out is far far far more complex. and you never not told that. you want to mess with the C: drive? now let me guess the real goal (sad I must) the OS drive windows is failing ( common) and some lil' bird told you it needs a new boot drive, and then fail to say so here. okay I will bite. 1: buy a new SSD (hdd fail and are slow) 2: buy a new OS, from MS. or get free w10. (ask how) 3: then put in new SSD, 4: run the w10 installer media (it is free) 5: load w10 to the SSD fresh 6: answer the silly 30 questions it asks. 7: and click activate. (buy it) ..

My dell laptop keys 1QAZ KEYS ARE NOT WORKING

if a row is not working, in this case at an angle, it usually means either the keyboard is going bad, or the cable is not in right. Often unplugging and replugging the keyboard into the MB will fix a missing row.

DVD won't Play

If i understood you right you need a DVD player program. If so i would recommend you to try VLC Media Player.. VLC is a portable multimedia player, encoder, and streamer supporting many audio and video codecs and file formats as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols..

Dear Sirs Can I upgrade the CPU to Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9300? If so, what memory should I combine with it for best performance? Thanks Jo

ask at Dell.com this only they know what THEY allow. Only them model by model. here are the rules for CPU (and luck) T4500 now?
  1. Dell told you what works, ask them,.
  2. socket is real removes easy yes. Socket P (yes)
  3. must match what the chipset allows. must. Qx9300 does
  4. bios must allow it, upgrades to it can add more CPU's
  5. Qx9 uses 1o more watts the mobo and fan may not like that.
others have tried, seen here, but none did,be the first for fame? https://www.userbenchmark.com/System/Dell-Inspiron-N4020/15781
