Having problems with your Dell Vostro 1700 Notebook ?

Dell Vostro 1700 with Vista locks up

\015 I have a Dell Vostro 1700 operating Vista. It locks up when accessing a secure website using Internet Explorer. Have replaced the hard drive and gotten a CAT 6 cable. Also tried going thru a Verizon wireless route and it still locks up, has to be shut off, battery taken out to reboot. Also downgraded from Internet Explorer 8 to 7. Didn't help.Ideas?\015

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

\015\012There is absolutely nothing wrong with the laptop itself, the problem is caused by Microsoft Windows Vista running on a dual processor on your laptop.
\015\012
\015\012I have had many customers with the same issue and after all said and done, we ended up downgrading them to Windows XP. This fixed the problem, unfortunately, they had to downgrade. I have since upgraded them to Windows 7 without any problems at all.
\015\012
\015\012We tried everything to solve the issues, which included, updates, antivirus switch, hardware and software diagnosis.
\015\012
\015\012It is a glitch that Microsoft is not proud of and will not mention the issue in any of the security packs they release or bulletins. I have spoken with many Technicians and resulted in the same conclusion.
\015\012
\015\012Fortunately, you do not have to mess with a 9 year old operating system because of Windows 7 release. I have been a beta tester for a year and it works great as I have put the beta version on many laptops, netbooks and desktops.
\015\012
\015\012I would recommend purchasing Windows 7 at newegg.com as they have the OEM for $110.00! OEM version just means that you will agree to placing on one computer only and you will have no actual support from Microsoft. Usually, an OEM such as Dell would be your support with an OEM operating system but you would not have this either. I can't say many people use this anyways as contacting the manufacturer usually always results in them wanting money for support. You will have access to everything else including Windows updates, etc.

\015\012I hope this has been helpful and please let me know if you have any questions.
Make sure firewall not block the secure sites.
Turn off windows and antivirus and router firewall then check
.Make sure your user account has rights of installing secure certificates from secure sites.
Then check.
Restore all settings of ie7 to factory defaults.
