Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

My 6 month new Inspiron 1525 laptop has a full red

\015 I have a 3 GB laptop, brand new! That barely works due to a full red recovery drive. I don't know why its full as I only have 300 songs 10 pictures and nothing fancy except a firewall and antivirus softwear program. My computer runs VERY slow. I have high speed internet and it runs slower than when I used dial up.I am not very computer saavy and need to know if this needs to go into the shop to fix it and how much it will cost. Is it even fixable? My son-in-law who knows a little about computers said I have a $700.00 paper weight.\015

Answers :

Maybe your inspiron 1525 battery need to clear all the Dummy File and cookies and virus.
Then close all the neednot program.
If this cant solve the problem, it must be the hardware problem. Send the laptop to dell customer to ask them repair it
Why are you saving files to the Recovery Drive, It should be locked
\015\012Go Start , Explore and look at the list presented to you , there should be a three drive letters at the bottom of the list
\015\012C, D , E
\015\012One should be your recovery partition
\015\012One should be your DVD drive
\015\012One should be your working partition
\015\012If you bought the laptop from a chain or local dealer take it back to them and ask for the recovery partition to be either re-named or cleaned out to the E drive.
\015\012Also make sure that when you save stuff it is going to the E drive
