    Try to get Dell to help you, and if not, send it back and make them replace it. I waited 31 days before I figured out one of my speakers wasn't working and they treated it like a refurbushed computer.

    Have you uninstalled all the crap-ware that came pre-installed? This should eliminate your problem.

    Yes, go to Start > Run, click the Startup tab and uncheck everything except for your anti-viris software.
