    Dell Inspiron E1505. Each time I start up it shows that the "volume is dirty"!
    What does that mean and how would I clean it? LOL

    open a command window - start - all programs - accessories - command prompt, in there type chkdsk x: /f - x: being the drive you want to check, if its the c: drive (main drive) you will have to reboot the computer.

    The above command tells it to check the drive and fix errors :)
