My computor is taking a long time to get onto web site


Hi there,

Usually this occurs due to various reasons. I would suggest a few steps to troubleshoot the issue.

Open the web browser you're using to browse the pages. Check for the tool bars that may be installed.These toolbars gets installed automatically while downloading any applications or files in the Computer. If any toolbars are installed please uninstall them. These toolbars can slow down connecting to the internet.

In order to uninstall these toolbar, perform the below steps:

1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs.
2. Under Change or Remove Programs, check the presence of the name of the toolbar in the list of installed programs.
3. Please uninstall the program from the list and check if this resolves the issue.
After performing the above, I would recommend you to restart the Computer once before you access the internet.

I would also suggest that you try deleting cookies, history files and temporary internet files.Please view the below article to view the steps:

I would also suggest that you disable the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6). Please refer the below article to view the steps:
"http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C1007556"

Also try using different web browsers like Firefox, Safari, Opera etc., and check if the issue still persists.

I would also suggest that you boot the Computer into Safe mode with Networking option. Please refer the below article to view the steps to start the Computer in "Safe mode with Networking" option.
"http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C170681"

Please check if the browser is still taking a lot of time to open a web page. If the web page open normally, then I guess it is required to upgrade RAM of the Computer.

Please check whether the issue started after installing any application. If yes, try uninstalling the application and check if this resolves the issue.

If the web page opens slowly, then I suggest that you reinstall the Operating System.

Regards,
Mithun

NO INTERNET


It sounds like you might have proxy settings set up on your browser configuration. Click tools >internet options>Connections tab>LAN settings button on internet explorer. If "Use a proxy server" is checked uncheck it and save settings. Restart internet explorer and try again.

My web cam will turn on but it wont let anybody view it


Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
