  • Hi Bin,


    The source exhausting issue can be caused by many factors. Regarding your computer, I cannot find the BIOS and devices' drivers for Windows 7. It could cause hardware compatibility issue. Please confirm with DELL if the 4310 is compatible with Windows 7. If so, where is the latest version.


    Here are some generally steps for narrowing down the issue.


    1. Boot in Safe Mode to check if the issue persists. If so, the issue is mostly relate to hardware.

    2. Check memory and check disk.


    To check disk, please open an elevated CMD windows and run Chkdsk /f /r


    To check memory, please refer to: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Diagnosing-memory-problems-on-your-computer


    In addition, you can run memtest86+ to check the memory. It is a third party tool.



    3. Try the Clean Boot.




    If the issue persists, please copy and paste the event log here.


    Best Regards,
