hi there,

upgrade you memory and

free spaces on your hard drive and install missing drivers and codecs

codecs can be downloaded from link below:

Right click on "my computer" and select "properties". Check the speed of the CPU - should be 1.6ghz. If you are using a non-DELL AC adaptor or have a broken laptop/adapter, DELL has built into the bios that it will detect "unknown adapter" (which you can check in bios setup). If this is the case, DELL has put in code to run the CPU at 600mhz instead of 1600mhz and will not let you charge the battery. Perhaps your speed problems are due to DELL breaking you laptop like this -- as they have mine.
