  1. Going from 512MB to 2GB, you should notice startup and programs start quicker. Going from 1GB to 1GB+, you will only notice a very slight increase.

     

    By full power. I mean by default on laptops the power settings are for Portable/Laptop. Right click on the desktop, click Properties, Screen Saver, Power... Your power scheme will be on Portable/Laptop (meaning it's not using full CPU power). If you plug it up on a AC adapter at home, set your Power scheme to Always On. This is will use your CPU power, just if you go mobile with it, set it to Portable/Laptop, otherwise the battery will only last about 2 hours max.

     

    Dell should have a Help/Support page for drivers for your laptop. Windows Update may have some of them, but they could be outdated by a version or two. Windows Update is slow about getting up to date drivers.

     

    I would recommend this:

     

    Run CCleaner

    Create a System Restore Point

    Run Disk Cleaner (More Options, System Restore, Clean up) Not many do this and it does up a lot of space over a period of time.

    Defrag

    My Computer, right click on C: (or main drive), Tools, Error Checking, check both, Start (reboot) This is will take sometime (don't be in a hurry for it).

     

    I recommend running CCleaner once a week (at min.) and do the System Restore clean up about every month. Defrag about every month if you are a heavy user. Do Error Checking about every 2-3 months.


  2. It could be many things...

     

    When was the last time you defragged?

     

    Last time you cleaned up disk space on your hard drive?

     

    Are you running at full power settings or mobile/laptop?

     

    Do you have a lot of programs in startup?

     

    Is your pagefile to big?

     

    Are any unnecessary services running?

     

    Do you have a virus or spyware?

     

    Are all your drivers up to date?


  3. Well, I thought I would try a cordless mouse (Logitech MX600). I actually find the wireless to have a quicker response, smoother, and not having to deal with the cord on the mouse.

     

    I know it takes batteries, but nowadays if you don't have rechargeable batteries, you are still in the stone age.

     

    Just wondering what people think of wireless mice.


  4. The reason I say is... CCleaner use to have an Exit button, but all in all, it was pointless to have it. Many use skins (the one I use is very popular). I just suggested that because it will probably help out in the long run.

     

    FYI, it still cuts off, but just a little.

     

    I am heading out to see the new Bourne movie right now. I will start working on the new icon when I get back. I already have an idea of what I am going to do.
