Should be at boot time a f10 key. On your HP screen, it's esc for boot menu, F10 for the system recovery.

You'll probably need the disk.

It seems that your OS has registry problem, there are only two ways to fix it:-

1) Re-install your Windows with Re-partition your drives (In that case you have to take backup of your all data.)

2) Start PC in Safe mode, then download a reliable program like i always use Reginout to fix my OS registry properly.

Laptop computer runs slow


Mostly laptop runs slow issue occurs due to broken Windows registry entries. Fixing registry will help you to boost up your laptop. You need to download and install a Registry Cleaner program to fix corrupt or broken registry entries. To download a reliable registry cleaner, go to famous website download.cnet and search there Reginout. Which I personally use and recommend the friends. After downloading run all of its tools one by one except Internet Optimizer, to clean all the junks and registry errors from your computer.

My computer is very very slow.


Block the Startups and Services

When your computer is started up, there might be a number of programs and services running in the background. Some of them would be update checkers, error reporters and the rest are necessary tools like your antivirus etc.

The idea is to disable running the start-ups and service that you no longer need.

  1. Click Start ' Run.
  2. Type MsConfig and press ENTER.
  3. Disable the start-ups and services from the Startup and Services tabs respectively.
  4. Click OK button and restart the machine.

Defragment the Disks

My computer is slow to start up if the disks are too fragmented. Fragmentation refers to dividing a file into several parts which cause slow down in retrieving their contents.

The problem can be solved by defragmenting such fragmented disks using the Disk Defragmenter.

  1. Click Start ' All Programs ' Accessories ' System Tools ' Disk Defragmenter.
  2. Select all the drives.
  3. Click Defragment disks button.

Defragment your Registry

Registry is the database in your operating system containing significant configurations and information. Registry fragmentation too cause my computer is slow to start up issue.

Defragmenting the registry is too simple. You have to download a third party Registry Defragmenter software and install it o your system.

Set Up the System for Best Performance

Setting Windows for maximum performance rather than best appearance could fix the problem. Whenever my computer is slow to start up I perform the same task. The steps are provided below:

  1. Right click My Computer.
  2. Select Properties.
  3. Click Advanced System Settings link at the left hand side of the window.
  4. Click Advanced tab.
  5. In Performance frame, click Settings button.
  6. Select the option Adjust for best performance and click OK ' OK.

Disinfect the System

Sometimes computer is infected by a virus and I feel that my computer is slow to start up.. Change the existing antivirus software and download a good one. Update its virus definitions and conduct a full scan through it. Remove all the infected files that found.

My computer too slow always get the not responding reply.


Eliminate Viruses and Spyware
Step 1

Run your antivirus program. There may be something slowing your computer that you can remove. It is a good idea to run your antivirus program every week.
Step 2

Remove spyware. Run a good spyware tool at least twice a month.
Step 3

Use a pop-up blocker, if you have one. Check your antivirus program.


Dispose of the Extras

Step 1

Delete your document files for anything you no longer need. Saved pictures, audio and video files in particular can slow your computer.

Step 2

Remove unwanted programs from the Control Panel area. Old toolbars or games the kids downloaded off the Internet are a good place to start. Look for software you no longer use, such as the old printer you threw out last year.

Step 3

Clean out your email. Old messages are a constant drain on your computer's resources. Go through every folder, deleting everything you do not need. Leave no mail! Finish by emptying the Deleted Items folder.

Step 4

Turn off unnecessary programs. Check your taskbar for icons that show running programs. Disable anything you are not currently using.

Run Maintenance

Step 1

Run the Disk Cleanup tool located in your Control Panel. (Windows only. For other operating systems, please check the Resources section below.) This will remove temporary files, cookies and unnecessary components to speed up your computer.

Step 2

Defragment your computer. Defragging takes some time, but will speed your computer significantly. You can find the tool in your Control Panel. Run it monthly.

Step 3

Check for disk errors. Sometimes corrupted files slow down your computer. To find and fix these files, Go to My Computer and right-click on C drive. Choose Properties, then Tools.

My pc.. desktop is very slow.. its a windows vista


You may want to look into upgrading your RAM if there is less than 2GB installed. This is a recommendation that I have found in working with several PC's running this Operating System. Also, you would want to run disk clean up and remove any temporary files that Windows finds. Deleting any other temporary or unused files from your PC on a regular basis should increase system performance. In addition, if these steps do not solve your problem, you may want to consider upgrading to a faster performance hard drive (preferably a SATA II with a 32MB cache). As a last resort, you may look at your CPU to see if there is an upgrade for it, as well. Keep in mind that Vista is a resource hog and can slow down a PC within just a short period of time.

How do i reset my hp computer back to the way i bought it?


factory settings could mean performing a system restore to a previous state of the OS. I'll try to explain how you can perform each one of these methods in the article below.
Restore Factory Settings - System Restore System Restore is the in-built tool of Windows XP and Windows Vista that allows you to roll back the registry to a previous state. Note that it only "restores" previous settings for the registry and Windows system files.
You can use system restore to get rid of spyware, but if system restore does not fix your problem, you'll have to resort to either a clean install of the OS or using your recovery CD/DVDs.
You can read my previous post on how to restore your computer using the System Restore feature. If system restore is disabled, you can read my post on how to enable system restore again.
restorefactorysettings-thumb.png
Restore Factory Settings - Recovery CD/DVDs Most computers come with either a recovery CD/DVD or a recovery partition that is hidden on the computer. This is true for most HP and Dell machines now these days.
If you have one of these, you can access the recovery from within Windows or during startup.
For HP, you can go to Start, All Programs, HP Tools, and then choose HP PC System Recovery.
hprecoverymanager-thumb.png
You can also press the F10 key multiple times during bootup to get access to the recovery console in case Windows is not loading properly.
On Dells, you can access the recovery partition by pressing Ctrl + F11 immediately after the machine is turned on.
Note that all of your data will be lost on the hard drive. Using a recovery CD is not the same as repairing XP. When you repair Windows XP, all of the system files are replaced with the original ones, but your data and applications remain intact.
Restore Factory Settings - Clean Install XP Your last and final option for restoring XP to factory settings is to perform a clean install. This requires having the CD/DVD for the OS. If you only have a hidden recovery partition, you will not be able to perform a clean install.
A clean install basically consists of booting from the original XP CD, deleting all partitions, recreating new partitions, and then installing Windows XP from CD.
It's a fairly straight-forward process and you can read this excellent tutorial for step by step instructions. Again, it's important to note that you will lose all your data in this process.

I cant get factory settings on my computer My hard drive wont work properly Ihavent got any memory.Computer very slow Please explain in laymans terms Obliged


1. Factory settings on computer.
There really isn't "factory settings" to reset. Well it isn't simple as that. There is the BIOS which can be reset to "default settings" for the BIOS. Also most brand name computers come with a recovery feature, in which you can recovery/restore the computer back to original factory defaults with original software all installed. Therefore the computer's operating system (usually windows) will be running with the programs like it would run if you were to buy the same new laptop.

2. Hard drive won't work properly.
You can give the hard drive a test using the hard drive's company's hard drive testing software which can be download from their site. The software would test the hard drive to make sure nothing physical is wrong and the hard drive is functioning like normal.

3. Haven't got any memory. Computer very slow.
You can always buy more memory. If windows says it's running out of memory. That means there is too many software running in the background.

Comment if you want more explained.
