Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4700 PC Desktop ?

Long time starting

\015 When my computer boots up I sometimes get just a cursor but the main problem upon starting is when the computer gets to the theme and stays that way for a few minutes till the icons appears and finally starts the internet session.\015

Answers :

This happens with older machines you are experiencing 2 problems.\015\012Problem one you need more ram. the reason you need more ram is that you have too many programs and services starting at once.  I assume you are running windows xp. These dells shipped whith just enough memory to run the os and a few select programs. We are end users installing our own stuff like itunes, games, new printers, IM and others. \015\012
\015\012Restart the computer. \015\012let it boot up.\015\012click start>mycomputer>right click on my computer\015\012Click on the properties menu\015\012now click the advanced tab\015\012Click >Performance settings\015\012Now click best performance.\015\012click apply ok\015\012restart your computer\015\012is it faster? even marginally.. if so it is a ram issue.\015\012How many icons load up to the left of the clock more than 5 is an issue. that cna be addressed with msconfig..\015\012
\015\012If you have questions repyl back,\015\012

It sounds like you have too many things running at start up or there is a virus on your machine.

I would suggest a virus scan and downloading and installing a copy of SpyBot. If you don't have a virus scanner, you can install Avast! for free and run it.

If you already have one, update the software FIRST, then run the scan.
