My Dell Inspiron 9400 takes forever, ok, slight exaggeration, to start up, run browsers or programs and then shut down.
Processor Genuine Intel® CPU T2300 @ 1.66GHz
Processor Speed 1.62 GHz
Memory (RAM) 2048 MB
Operating System Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Operating System Version 5.1.2600
I have tried may things, none resolve the problem, today I did a repair install using a slipstreamed SP3 disk. I now am told that I need to register before I can log on and while doing so I get a message similar to XXXXX can not write to memory ZZZZZZ please select ok to stop process or cancel to debug. Neither option seems to work. All I get is my desktop image nothing else.
During this process, I sometimes get hieroglyphics either at the top of the screen or the bottom right hand side
