Question about Dell Inspiron E1705, Intel Core 2 Duo T5300 , 17" WSXGA+ LCD, 1GB DDR2 SDRAM, 256MB ATI V... PC Notebook
You would have been better off factory restoring the laptop after you upgraded the RAM.
But if you don't want to do that you could clean the system and perform a disk check on the hard drive.
First off all you need to clean the temp and temp internet files and also the registry.
For this you will need to download and install a program called ccleaner.
This is a very useful tool when it comes to cleaning the system of unwanted files and registry keys which are obsolete. Read the info first before use. Get ccleaner here >>>
Once you are done with ccleaner you will then need to perform a disk check.
To do this click on the start menu and again click on Run. In the box type cmd a command line window will open. For Vista type cmd in the search box and hit enter.
In the command line window type chkdsk /r and hit enter. You will get a message saying that the volume cannot be locked and would you like to schedule a disk check next time the computer restarts. Type Y and then hit enter. Close the window and restart your pc.
Disk check will start before loading the operating system and could take 2 to 3 hours to complete depending on the state of the volume.
If this still is not to your standard then you probably are best off backing up all your data and performing a factory restore on the laptop.
