How to Troubleshoot a Millennium Computer
Troubleshoot a slow computer by checking to make sure your Millennium computer has at least 500 MB of free space. Open "My Computer," right-click the main disk drive, which is typically "Local Disk (C:)," and select "Properties." The Properties dialog will open.
Select the "General" tab of the Properties dialog box and look at the chart displaying the amount of free space on the computer. Click the "Disk Cleanup" button if you need to free up space on the hard drive.
Troubleshoot error messages when attempting to open a folder on your Millennium computer by going to the "View" menu, selecting "Folder Options" and choosing "Show All Files." Delete the Thumbs.db file in the problematic folders by right-clicking the file and selecting "Delete."
Troubleshoot "Invalid Page Fault" error messages by deleting temporary Internet files. Click the "Start" button, point to "Search" and select "For Files or Folders." Type "*.tmp" into the search box and select "Local Disk (C:)" as the location. Click "Find Now" and delete any temporary files that come up in the search.
Troubleshoot general problems with your Millennium computer by running "ScanDisk." Open "My Computer" and right-click "Local Disk (C:)." Select "Properties" and go to the "Tools" tab. Click the "Check Now" button and restart the computer. Windows will scan for and repair certain problems automatically.
