Question about NEC Express5800 120Le Server

1 Answer

System is running 100%

1) Task Manager under the Performance Tab - that the machine is running at 100%. Of course the direct result is a slow answering, slow running VM system. Any ideas? Its still running NT 4.0 2) Is it difficult to move it to a new server? What is needed to upgrade the entire system? Thanks Rusty Fenn,CIO US Merchant Systems, LLC

Before buying, try to find the specific process which use most of the system resources. make sure its not a spyware (use lavasoft foe example) or something you can eliminate from the system start up (msconfig...). Anyway, all you have to upgrade is the SDRAM memory. buy another 512K and it will run like the wind :) Good luck.

Computer CPU/Processor maxed 100%

Is your computer experiencing a CPU that is running at 100% Is your computer experiencing slow performance?

You can view your CPU utilization and other performance stats using Windows Task Manager. Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete and bring up Task Manager. Go to the performance tab.


The top of this screen should show your CPU stats.

In Linux you can use the TOP command,
Type the top command:
$ top

A CPU that is running at 100% utilization is not necessarily a problem. When the computer is booting up, or coming out of sleep mode, it may max out the CPU which is normal. The CPU will be utilized fully in order to bring the computer up as fast as possible. Some computers will even utilize the CPU while it is idle, to complete background task such as disk cleanup and file reallocation.

A problem will occur if the CPU stays maxed out. If it stays at 100% for more than a couple of minutes, you may be experiencing degraded computer performance.

Steps to reduce performance degradation.

-In a limited number of cases, software bugs can cause CPU utilization to spike. You will know this is the case if you are using a computer program(that is not hardware intensive like photo/video editors) and notice degraded computer performance. Check your CPU stats while running the program. If this is the case, check online for solutions and possible upgrades which resolve bugs in the software.

-You can reduce Windows start up programs, which will speed up the boot/wakeup process. You can do this from the MSCONFIG window. Go to Start > and in the run box type "msconfig". Go to the "startup" tab and you can uncheck which programs you do not want to start with Windows.

-A majority of the time a computer will get to a point were the hardware will need to be upgraded in order to handle the work you are doing. Common computer upgrades are memory, cpu, motherboard and hard drive.

How to force quit uncooperative programs on a PC.

Have you ever encountered annoyingly slow or freezing programs that will not quit when you try to close a window? There is a simple keystroke you can use to quit the programs:Ctrl+Alt+Del. This enables you to access the Task Manager. Task Manager keeps track of all the computers processes as well as the CPU usage and physical memory and can be used to monitor and quit unnecessary programs that can slow or freeze your computer.You simply hold all three buttons (in sequence) and you will be redirected to a different screen that gives you options. Look for Task Manager. (note: If you have Windows XP, Task Manager will pop up as a window). There are 6 tabs (Applications, Processes, Services, Performance, Networks and Users). We will only cover the Applications tab.Once you are in Task Manager, click on the applications tab, if it is not already showing. You will see the titles of programs you are using, if any, and its status (running or not responding). If a program is not responding simply highlight it, by clicking on it and clicking on the button at the bottom labeled "End Task".This should force quit the program(s).

My computer is being hanging

Goto Strart and then Run
write "msconfig" inside Run tab and press 'enter'
inside the 'Sys config utility' window click on 'startup' tab then uncheck all the applications except your current antivirus and press apply then 'ok' and then 'exit without restart' option.

Now right click My Computer and go to properties tab.
click 'Advanced' tab then under performance menu click on 'settings'
goto 'Advanced' click on 'change' and increase your virtual memory to 2048 in both spaces.
now restart windows.

To quickly restart windows press CNTRL+ALt+DEL
inside task manager you will find all the open applications .
right click on each applicaion and click on end process tree then ok

Close all your apps like this and you will find your windows a lot faster and now you can reboot or turn off your windows as usual from start button.

There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, trojan, or spyware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, google the name and you should find what the process is for.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC: 23&pkj=RRJEDTKJBTVISBYWWYP

If you think there is any virus in your pc, then scan your pc with ESET NOD32 On demand scanner or install Quick Heal. If you want free antivirus then download and install avast home edition 5.0 and register for 1 year free license. (WWW.AVAST.COM)

** After doing all this, if u further want to improve ur system performance then tell me the Operating System installed in your system then I will tell you how to improve.

My pc seems to be running slow. t ran the dic

Type CTRL-ALT-DELETE, and click "Task Manager".

The "Performance" tab will show you the CPU-busy percentage
(it will be high when a computer-game is running, or when a computer-virus is running, or when a DEFRAG is running, or when Windows Update is running as a "background" task).

It will also show how much physical RAM is installed,
and how much of that RAM is "free' (currently not being used).

On the 'Processes' tab, you can see which process is using the largest share of the CPU, and the largest amount of RAM. Close any "runaway" process.

Run a virus-scan.

Computer suddenly slow!

There could be a number of things that is slowing your computer down and it depends upon what is running on the computer and in the background.
For example. Someone could have hack into your computer, assuming you are on an unsecured wireless conection. A virus program is using or accessing data on your computer. Your virus program is running a scan on the computer. If you are on the Internet and the service is slow because of the amount of traffic through your ISP's connection.

The way to monitor what is going on is to run Windows Task Manager.
Press Ctrl-Alt-Del keys together to open Windows Task Manager.
There are 5 Tabs that view various functions. The Processes and the Performance tab give you details of what is going on.
In the Performance tab if the CPU is running nearly 100% that is why your computer appears slow.
In the Application tab, this shows which programs are opened and running, the more applications that are opened can make the computer slower.
In the Processes tab this shows exactly which process is running and who or what is using that process and the CPU usage. Click on the CPU label twice and it will sort the CPU usage from the highest to the lowest. You maybe able to determine the process which is causing the problem and work out if you can shut down this process/program or it is a problem that needs to be resolved.

I suggest that if you are using a wireless connection that it should be secured to prevent unauthorized access. Install a firewall and anti-virus program. Scan the computer for viruses and trojan horse programs etc.

System running very slow, programs not responding including anti virus which is not performing virus scan.

- Open Task Manager (Ctrl-Shift-Esc).
- Open Processes Tab.
- Make the column "CPU Time" shown (somewhere in menu).

You will see, which process eat the performance.

If Task Manager doesn't start, it must be a quite clever virus. Try
It is free.

Hp pavilion ze4560us processor slow

Probably what you should do first is download Malware Bytes and do a quick scan/clean of your system to make sure there is no malicious code on it.

Beyond that (if the machine tests clean) post your results and/or a list of the processes that are running so that we can further assist. Also, if you are currently running any anitivirus programs please post what kind.

Hard drive

When you say it's slow what I often found is that
1.not enough memory on your laptop
** so your CPU have to use your harddisk as memory,instead of working directly your CPU have another work to manage thus cos your system to slow down.
** you can check memory usage by right-click on your taskbar and click on Task Manager.Go up to Performance and check
Physical memory and see your available memory.

2.use more than one anti-virus program.Its just like before your work has been check by one program and now somebody is calling your same work to be recheck.Thus cos your system to become really slow.

3.Something is running all the time.A virus or something is running all the time.Shut it down by right-click on your taskbar and click on Task Manager.Go up to Performance and see CPU
usage that its 100%!!!! If so go up to process tab and right click
on the process you think is creating problem and End Process Tree.

3.The combination of not enough muemory and also not enough
harddrive space.When I say not enough harddriver I mean really low about 100-300 Megs.

so in your case not the problem with Harddrive..cos you have 1.5G
