    Dell? Just to much.
    « on: September 07, 2008, 08:00:36 PM »
    I have a new Dell Inspiron 530s. A gift from Dell it has Vista , 500GB HD, E 2200 CPU and 3GB OF memory. It is starting to hang and after I have been on the net for a hour or so the start button wont work. I will have to turn off the computer with the power switch. I have no support from DEll so I hope you can help. Dell sucks.

      If you have a "new" Dell, why no Dell support?

      What do you mean "Starting to hang?"
      If you don't have time to do it right
                      ...when will you have time to do it over?

        Some people don't like Vista, even before they start to use it :)

        hmm, sounds like lack of proper internet security?

        Both. The first blame is valid, the second one, not :)

          I made the mistake of buying a Dell some 3 years ago and had a lot of trouble out of it. In the resent past it was relay bad. They had replaced all most every thing in it and decided to send me a new computer to replace it. I am now having problems with the new one and they will not support it because the support for the old one ran out. They didn't tell me I needed to buy new support. I didn't think a new computer needed fixed. What I mean by the start button is the windows logo. When you put the courser on it and click nothing comes up. So you can't get to programs or turn the computer off. So to turn the computer off you have to use the power butten.

            I think this will be helpful: http://windows.about.com/od/windowsforbeginners/ss/vista_interface.htm

            What about the "hang?"
            If you don't have time to do it right
                            ...when will you have time to do it over?

              By hang I mean some times when I am in a program it will stop working. I hit ctrl alt delt and restart the program and ever thing works fine. I have had the computer about 6 or so weeks. I have Live one care for protection. I have all the up dates installed that I have been told about. Oh yes it has sp1. The hang or stop has only accrued may be 5 times sense I have had the computer.

              Not the best choice.
              Did you check computer temperatures?

                No I didn't. I don't have that software on the Dell. I have it installed on the computers that I built. It came on the Intel CD.
