My computer isnt working properly

Hi i have an alienware x51 desktop and i turned it off once and when i turned it back on i realised it took longer to turn on. Also when it was on i came to realise that task manager wouldn't even respond. Now i cant download things update things or even force close things and when i shut down my computer it just says shutting down and takes more than an hour. Is there any solution to fixing this i've tried the reinstallation cd but i can't seem to get it working

If under warranty, call Dell phone support.

Running Diagnostics (outside of Windows) would be a good place to start. Try pressing F12 on Boot.
