Have you installed all the hardware drivers yet start with the chipset drivers first.

After the drivers the anit-virus and third party firewall software is next important thing and update to the latest definitions on anti-virus and latest update for firewall then use windows update to ensure the os has all the latest patches and fixes.

Is there an easy of getting these, or does it mean searching on line?
Dell site listed loads of drivers laser time it was not easy to figure out which were the ones needed.

When looking for Dell drivers I have always found it easier to use their own search system and entering the unit service Tag, this will only show drivers that are compatible with your actual system

The UK site is here, but you would need to go to the site for your market to account for any local variations

I'll try that ... didn't think asset tag approach would help much ... much of it has been changed.
Not Vista
New RAM
New Video card
New i/o card
New HDD's
New DVD rw

But I'll follow your link and go look.
