#1) The Windows 2000 Dell Insipiron Notebook will not startup without freezing unless you repeat it 2-3 times. It has no problem reaching the login screen. After entering the username and password, the computer simply hangs. I can press Ctrl-Alt-Del and choose "log out" to return to the login screen. Then I try again and it may or may not work. So it seems to hang on loading a specific program. How do I determine what program is causing the hang and remove it?
#2) A while back the CD burner in this latop also stopped working. We have tried burning with Easy CD Creator and iTunes. With either program we encounter errors and can't finish the CD. Assuming the problem is not hardware related, what's the best course of action? I am planning to re-install easy CD creator first, unless there's a better solution.
#3) My sister's 15in. screen is really messed up. Sometimes is is just black (the backlight works, but no signal), and other times is goes fuzzy or the colors are off. Seems like a bad cable connection or video card connection to me. The only way to solve the problem is shaking the computer or tilting it so the connection fall into place. Anybody know how to go about opening it up so I can take a peak? I know it will void the warranty, but it's already out of warranty. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much everyone!
