Flashing Battery Light, Run Faster, Dell updates

\015 I have a Dell 9300 Inspron from 05. It still works great but here are my questions. I'm tech challenged, thanks for the help.\015\012\015\0121. The battery light is flashing. I have replaced it once. Does it mean its on its way out again?\015\012\015\0122. What is the best way or is there an online program that I can run to clean up my computer and make it run a little faster.\015\012\015\0123. Are there DELL updates that I should be downloading to help with over all performance.\015

Answers :

Hi there.
Can you tell me what the battery indicator is supposed to be doing and does it only flash on and off when AC power is plugged in?

The best free system tool for cleaning the system is CCleaner, use this nifty little app for cleaning the temp files, temporary internet files and recycle bin.
Also use the registry cleaner to keep system files running smoothly (make sure you back up to the registry when it asks you)

Download CCleaner from here >>>>>

And in answer to your last question, there are no updates from Dell apart from any utilities that they may offer.
You've asked a lot.
The battery light could indicate it's on its way out. What does the battery life indicate if you unplug the unit from the wall? How old is the battery that is in it now?
You can clean up your computer by using the hard drive cleanup utility in Windows, (in the system tools), and then you can check your hard drive for errors and defrag it (in the tools tab when you are viewing the properties of the hard drive.) You can run msconfig and disable startup programs you don't need.
And--for upgrades, the cheapest upgrade with the most bang for the buck is to increase your memory.
As for Dell updates, you could check their site for updates in utilities.
If all this boggles your mind, let me know and I'll lead you through the steps to do it.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
