Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook ?

My computer is extreamly slow. I click on a desktop icon and then wait and wait for it to respond. My computer is a Dell Inspiron laptop running Windows XP


Answers :

I just fixed a computer laptop about 3 days ago for this same problem. The owner had 4.6% left (7GB) left on a 142GB HardDrive. It was really slow in responding.
\015\012I restart the computer and press F8 so it goes into Safe Mode. That way it only runs Windows XP without background programs. I go to Program Files>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleaner or LeftClick on My Computer then RightClick on C: drive and choose Properties to run DiskCleaner with Compress Drive unchecked. The HardDrive needs about 10 to 15% space to do a Defrag. (Freespace / Capacity = %). After the HardDrive's been cleaned I click on the Properties Tool tab for Disk Defragmenter, or Program Files>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragmenter. Let it defrag while no other programs are running. After it finishes, RightClick on C: drive and choose Properties, click on Tools tab, click on Error Checking "Check Now" and place checks in both checkboxes. Restart computer, and let Error Checking do its job.
\015\012If it still runs slow I suggest getting the free Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed and do a Full System Scan, then run it again after Restart. Then download and install IOBit's Advanced System Care Free Edition. CCleaner Slim finds a few more items after that.
\015\012Microsoft Malicious Software Removal should be updated every month, along with Windows Update items.
\015\012Buy an external USB HardDrive and move your photos, music and anything else you want to keep onto it. The less files there are on the HardDrive the easier it is on your computer.
\015\012I've seen a few laptops here for my friends stationed here in Afghanistan where they were so infected the browser window was blocked. I've used this remedy and other methods to get them back online.
Do a Disk Cleanup and a Defrag of the hard drive to get all the TMP files and Cookies out of the system. You find these under the Accessories tab in XP and then go to System Tools. Then you need to clean the Registry with a registry cleaner. Here is a good free one I use all the time.http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner. Today with all the surfing on the Web you get massive amounts of clutter and weekly need to do the above steps to keep the system clean. Phil Let me know if I can help you more. [email protected]
