Questions about a Dell laptop and Vista.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, so i'm new to the site.

I have a Dell inspiron 1545 running vista. I got the laptop around last Easter, it's been fine but lately it has been freezing openig programs like control panel and goes unresponsive etc. It works fine in safe mode and dosent freeze, but I want the Internet and normal programs back so I need someway to fix the normal startup. Thanks

L O L - I think your only option is a system restore, in other words re-install Vista because your issue seems to be purely software related. Either that, or revert your system back to an earlier date (assuming you have this feature setup). Good luck with Windows.

Throw Vista in the garbage bin, use Windows 7 64bit. I'm not being a smartass here, I've tried numerous Vista installs and it's just absolute nonsense. Windows 7 64bit has been impressive and quite stable.
