My Dell Inspirion is just running super sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww...

I have done memtest86, RAM is fine. All temps are good. I replaced the HDD...but I fear that some files may have been corrupted or lost in the process of copying my old HDD to the new one.

 

The windows 7 repair disc says it cannot fix the problem. I tried running sfc in command prompt, but it tells me that I have to log in as administrator from the local machine, WHICH I AM.

 

I am at my wits' end. I mean it takes almost a minute at times to open an email, or to open a new window... sometimes it's fine, but usually it's super slow.

 

Maybe I should just wipe the HDD and reload windows?

 

Help???

What exactly is the message that the repair discs give? How old is the computer?
You could just reformat the drive now, but obviously you would lose your data. I would wait to reformat until you can tell that it is the only option left. Or, I guess, if you don't want to deal with it at all, then just reformat now.

When I run the repair disc, it gives a message that says "Windows cannot repair the problem automatically".

The machine is from 2008, but a good strong machine. The disc was just created today from my win7 system tools...

Thank you, Louis. It may take the better part of the day to do this. I've been trying to download Speccy for about an hour now. I am using a laptop to email you...

 

I will try to do what you suggested, and get back to you when I have completed it...I'm beginning to think I may have a bad processor...but I'm not exactly sure what the symptoms of that would look like...

Ok, Louis...

Louis!

 

I believe I have discovered the problem....

I feel kind of stupid, though.  :/

 

As I was looking at the Speccy readout, I noticed that I only had 1 of 4 RAM slots filled, and 1G of Ram...

But I have 2 GBs of RAM, and 2 DDR2 sticks.

So, I said, "Hey!"...what's up with that???

 

Then I remembered that before I replaced my failing HDD, I cleaned my case out with canned air, and I removed and replaced the RAM sticks...and I said, "I'll bet one of my RAMs is not seated properly!"

 

I took the cover off the case, and bingo...I re-seated the RAM, and my PC is running great...

So, unless you see something other than that in the info I sent you, I guess this case is closed.

 

I'm so sorry for troubling you if that's all it was, Louis.

I'm studying to do this for a living, but it doesn't come naturally to me like it does to some 16 year olds I know. :)

But, by the grace of God, I'll get there.

 

Thanks so much for your help.

I wish you lived next door...

 

Peace to you.

Well...it's no problem for me if you have discovered the cause of your problems :).  Running Win 7 on 1GB of RAM is something I would expect to cause various problems :).

 

If you have any indications that you have other problems needing address...feel free to post them to this topic or a new topic and we'll have a go at them.

 

Thanks for letting us know...happy computing :).

First...if's not my knowledge...I usually speak in generalities and that's just one of the generalities about Windows since XP, really.  XP can run fine on 1GB, but it runs a lot better with 2GB.

 

Of course...a system that only reflects 10 programs or less installed...is not the norm for most Windows users.  The programs installed...are the premise behind even having a system and the system requirements of each program will vary by type.

 

I would not draw any conclusions from your setup...and try to apply those to more typical users.

 

Louis

 it tells me that I have to log in as administrator from the local machine, WHICH I AM.

 

Just to address this specific problem...

 

To run sfc /scannow click on the Start orb, they type cmd in the Search programs and files box.

 

cmd will appear above the search box under Apps, right click on it and choose Run as administrator.

 

This will invoke the administrator rights and open the Elevated Command Prompt.

Arachibutyrophobia,

 

Thank you for that. I have since discovered that through my studies.

But I appreciate your willingness to help...
