Being a Dell,The BIOS Would be locked.Also being a Dell,An unlocked BIOS Would be hard to find,so reflashing it is out of the question.

What do you mean by 'cold to touch',Just becuase the case is cold doesnt mean the CPU Is cold,My Case is cold to touch,but the CPU is still running at 40c.

what do you have for ram, that issue sounds more like the computer is out of memory and is trying to move to many things in and out of the page file.

It's a guide to help you speed up 2000.here are some tips i recomend:

-Go to start>run>"msconfig" and go to startup and untick what you dont need.

-Right click on your hardrive in my computer,click properties,and run a disk cleanup.
