:scratchhe I can't find support documentation for an Inspiron 9100, but I can for a Dimension 9100. Is it a Dimension that you have instead of an Inspiron?

What processes are running at startup? Is there an antivirus running a scan at startup? Did you perform a disk cleanup, defrag, and scandisk?

No, its an inspiron, based off the original XPS case. I have done scandisk, and all the other standard jazz. I trim the startup down in msconfig to only what I need to run, killing all the other BS that ends up on there. I really wanna say that it is a windows problem.

The only thing that I have done recently since it start was go from Norton to AVG but I pulled all the norton stuff off there with the removal tool

What about spyware? Have you run Spybot/Adaware to find and get rid of that?

Jmorriss,

Try running a hijackthis and post the log file or PM if your worried about doing it that way. That way we can have a look and see what is going on. I to do comps for a living. I to do not claim to be the smartest. I'll help best I can.


matt4068,

"Usually" laptop kayboards are kinda of 1 peice things. The keyboard comes out as 1 peice. Not like a regular keyboard where you can pop a key off and see why it is sticky. What model of laptop is it so I can take a look around and see if there is a diagram on how to remove the keyboard.

1st the less programs you have running in the background the better your computer will perform. Attached is a file with changes I think your should look at or change. These are changes that "I" would do. You do "NOT" have to do them. Also you have lots of programs running that I did not list as should be stopped from running at boot time.

Well hell I cannot attach, PM me with an email and I will email it to you. Sorry bud.

Also man try running this: RunAnalyzer Think of this as a better msconfig.

Thanks-its not running slow so much as it just doesn't shut down at the moment. It works pretty dang good for a 4 year old laptop running dual displays. The HD will help I am sure but I will try to streamline some more. Problem is my perephrials have alot of background stuff running to support them-external network drive, network printer, external sound card, etc.

PM'ing now

Thanks!

Trying to track down why my dad's Vaio XP laptop's hard drive runs constantly?
I've run scans for spyware etc., no issues there.
All applications load slow.
I eliminated a lot of un-needed start menu items.
Thought it might be the Smartdefrag program, but it runs the same either way..... slow.
Laptop is 4 years old and has never run the same since he had a techy re-loadXP standard to replace a bootleg XP pro OS that my nephew's "buddy" loaded on it.
The hard drive has always run constantly even when it was brand new, it's just now it seems to be affecting the speed as well?

Two Main Reasons

Disk is so fragmented that it is constantly reading and writing all over the place to keep up.

Not enough or bad RAM that the pagefile is constantly being accessed.

Also look at the running processes. See if anyone of them is running high. Like say 50% or more. Only one that should be running around 99% would be the "System Idle Process". If it is cranking high that is a good thing. If you do see one runnig very high, try ending the process and seeing if that it causing it. You will notice a change instantly. Latley I have seen alot of the "Svchost.exe" using 99% CPU Usage.

From there we can help figure out whats up with yuor system.

I would get a fresh copy of Webroot / Spysweeper . If this is a pc its very possible
there may be a virus or other malady lurking somewhere there. I use it religiously
Can be bought online or at Best Buy and others
Hope this helps
Mike
