I have a dell inspiron 1501 laptop with XP home. It starts fine runs fine until I set it down and partially close the cover and when I go to open it I get black screen that opens in sections that takes forever and after it finally opens completly it is very slow and doesn't get any better unless I reboot it then its fine again till I set it down and partially close the cover then it starts all over again >:( I do not have anything new that I have installed. I have ran virus checks, cleaned all temp files defraged etc its clean. I run avast anti virus free version, advanced system care 4 which is the best software I have ever spent money on because it keeps the puter clean. My friend Keith is very good on puters and is scratching his head on this one ::) I do not want to do a reinstall because I have office 2003 with no reg keys so I would loose that( I bought this used with no licenses for office) The dell is maxed out for hard drive and ram there is plenty of free space on the HD and like I said it woks great as long as you don't partially close the cover. I do know the basics on puters and I usually can keep myself out of trouble but I am far from a pro on issues like this. The story is much longer on this issue but the bottom line is the problem so stated HELP PLEASE!!Till then 8)August 25, 2011 at 7:00 am #33419

If this is only when you partially close the lid….I am guessing that is has something to do with sleep mode or the options you have in regards to shutting your cover down... I have mine set to hibernate if I shut
