Getting an accurate speed reading from your ISP is a good first step to diagnosing the problem

This can be done in a veriety of ways

You can use the "ping" or "trace route" program that comes with your Operating system.

or a Visual traceroute program like this one

You might find a free one or at least a demo , you can use it to see if there is a serious delay at some point between you and the destination.

A list of ways to speed up my computer


1. Add more RAM.
2. Defragment the disk-drive.
3. Buy a faster-spinning disk-drive (7200 RPM versus 5400 RPM).
4. Run a "full" virus-scan.
5. Close unnecessary programs (BitTorrent, MSN Messenger)
when you're not using them.
6. Pay your Internet Service Provider more per month, to get a higher-speed service.
7. Buy a "high-end" video-card -- a slower video-card makes the computer seem slower.

Microsoft powerpoint 2007 student version stops working when you close the program. Is there a solution to the problem?


Hi Don,

So i just need a bit more information to try to help. With troubles like these though there are so many variables but maybe we will get lucky with trying the basics.

Can you tell me:

When you close Powerpoint does the entire PC freeze up? or just that program and you can continue using the PC?

Does it ever happen when you save the document?

How old is your pc?

When was the last time it was formatted?

Does your PC seem slower than normal?


thanks in advance for answering my questions.

Compaq Presario.Pentium 4, Vista Windows Home basic. Model SR504OAN Purchased 2007, My son Had Broadband only. Want to use dialup. How do I assertain whether it has an internal modem. On Modems in...


Ok. You want to setup a new Dial up connection.

First, you need to call a service provider and sign up for service with them. Here are a few companies.
  • AT&T Dial - 1-800-524-8500
  • Netzero - 1-888-349-0029 or online
  • People PC - 1-877-947-3327 offer code WEB6
Netzero provides 10 hours free per month with ads.

Personaly, I've had People PC and their customer service is great. On the contrary, I've had Netzero and their wait is at least 2 minutes for a representative. AT&T has also a good customer service.
The service provider you choose is up to you. All of these companies offer speeds of 56Kbps, which is the fastest you can get with dial up. People PC and Netzero offer "internet accelerators".

After choosing, they will send you a CD or you can download their software online.
Click here for PeoplePC.
Click here for Netzero.
At&T does not have their software online.
You already have an internal modem so just install the program and thats it.
Hope this helps.
