Some computers will work with overclocking. It is done in the BIOS HOWEVER....it causes quite a bit of heat in your processor and can destroy your processor.
Go into your BIOS and look for overclocking or clock velocity or speed. Keep in mind...if this can be done...you are going to exponentially shorten your laptop life and if you extreme overclock it.... probably lock up or brick your machine.

Semper Fi,

Check lights on the router and make sure they are on where applicable. Also unplug it for 5 minutes and plug in again the wait 10 minutes to try connecting and give the device lots of time to try and connect. If you haven't already plug it directly in with one of the Ethernet cables, or make sure your pc / computer / device is on auto DCHP and so is the router. if you are using a ipad or tablet try another device or reset the router using the button on it.

try going to the control panel , to the programs and features and seeing the list of installed programs
high light each line that you do not use or need and uninstall it
the basic programs are the win system , office essentials , photo sop e-mail word etc
but programs that are for games , music, etc or programs that you never use
driver installer , pc cleaner , pc updater etc can be uninstalled
now having cleaned out unnecessary programs , go to device manager and select defrag and pull all of the bytes into like areas on the disc
saves the computer time in searching for data
finally after that is done
in the search bar under programs on the desktop type CHKDSK and then enter it
that is an internal program that goes through every bit of data on the disc, repairs as it goes and restores register points for all data
that program runs for around 6 hours but it is well worth it to get the pc running properly

Dell has the data relating to your code. We do not maintain error codes as a rule; thus I suggest you go online with Dell to interrupt what the error message is relative to.

Is this an Inspiron 2205?
Is this a newly added hard drive or has it suddenly stopped working?

Dell Inspiron... | Answered on Sep 18, 2017

Double check which is the default printer. It should have a check. Or choose the printer while using manual print instead just print.
