Answers :

Hi, I am going to give you the best advice I can. Considering that you have no discs, apparently have done nothing to clean up your system and are not on a live chat, you should make several choices. Decide if you have any data on the computer you want to save if you do, then do you have a way to save it, like an external drive or a cd burner. If you don't have any data then you need to start removing programs or software that you don't need or use to free up your computers resources. Go to your control panel and find the add or remove programs icon, click on it and it will give you a list and tell you which programs are seldom or hardly ever used and remove them. You have to be careful not to remove things you might need. If you are afraid of this then you can free up system restores by deleteing the older ones and setting new ones before you remove somrthing you are not sure of. You can also increase virtual memory and if you haven't set up the computer to automatically do clean ups and disk defragging you need to do that or do it manually by clicking on programs, accessories, system tools. Do a file clean up first and then defrag. You might also consider looking on ebay for some inexpensive used xp system disks. You might also want to contact a local shop for a clean up estimate or pay for a live chat or phone help to have someone walk you through the gizillion things you need to do and most importantly be able to ask you what you have or see on the screen or even allow a remote hookup to let someone clean it up remotely. Good Luck!
If you're out of hard drive space, it will slow down significantly.
\015\012The only way of properly restoring it to new, is to use the genuine disks that it would have come with, or buy a Windows CD to reformat and restore everything (this will erase EVERYTHING, so backup files you want to keep)

My Inspiron 2200 used to run fine; now it is ridiculously slow, which I think started after I updated everything after about six months our out of use. It's especially slow opening a browser and navigating & freezes often. Norton Utliities shows everything OK, except "Memory- allocate small blocks" and Memory-read cached" show about half benchmark rates. Also Disk-random seek is about 23% of benchmark. So is it probably a memory issue? I could add 1GB in the open slot to reach the max. Thx!

Too slow We bought our computar about 2 years ago and it is really slow. There seems to be plenty of space left on the C-drive but the D-drive is almost full. There are also a lot of program always running when I check the task manager but I don't know how to stop them or what I need and don't need. Should I get more memory? Or try to delete things? I don't want to get a new computar because the one we have isn't that old and it works fine otherwise.
