    I have a Dell Inspiron 531 that I purchased last Christmas. Recently i
    has been freezing often and the only way I am able to correct it, is t
    hold my power button and restart because it is completely frozen. I'
    not sure what is happening but Speedfan tells me that it is 36-37c
    Could this be the problem? I have an external fan blowing inside of i
    but it doesn't seem to be doing much.

    Any help would be great, Thank

    I know this does not fix the problem, but gives you an alternete to get out
    of the situation. Try hitting Ctrl-Alt-Delete & if the menu comes up hit
    Esc.

  4. 37 degrees C is 130 degrees F and the CPU should be able to operate at that
    temperature.
    How much hard drive space do your have free?
    When was the last time you ran disk cleanup?
    I just fixed a Dell that had lost control on the Temp Internet File cache.
    (over 20 GB of TIFs)
    It would freeze frequently until we removed the 20 GB of TIFs. (which took
    over 8 hours to delete)

  5. When you experience the freeze check the time on your system write i
    down restart the pc and at start search type "ev" which will bring u
    event viewer go into event viewer and see which module failed at th
    time you recorded this will enable you to single out the error. Post th
    error if you aren't familiar with the information and we can help yo
    from there on

  6. Like you "helped" the person who wanted to use Acronis True Image to
    make an image of her system disk to use in case that disk ever died?
    Nothing you told her was even close to being true.

    I pity the poor people you "help".

    He gave his opinion.

    Odd, I was thinking the same about the slop I've seen you post. I've
    noticed a lot of wannabe "experts" like Paul "help" by pontificating
    and talking down to others then the icing on the cake after being
    critical of the person that TRIED to help offer absolutely no help at
    all himself. That's where I come in. I love to slap such pricks silly.
    They deserve it.

    You couldn't slap yourself 3 times in a row without breaking into a sweat.
