Could be any number of probems, and it would depend on exactly what type of system you have, (memory, cpu). Also, systems will have the tendency to slow down over time. It is good to reformat and reinstall the OS every few years or so, but depending on how much the computer gets used. Some times system slow downs can be as simple as installing a new program in a system. Some anti-virus software will bogg a system down because it uses so much resources. If your system is randomly slowing down, especially on start-up, I would suggest that you hit Control-Alt-Delete, and then see what process is running that is taking up most of you CPU resources during that moment. You can also go to Start-Run and then type in MSCONFIG and turn things off during start-up--but be careful. I turn off things that I don't need to constantly run, such as MS Office, and things that I am sure won't affect my system.

here is the quick solution
1) xp computer---click start/ run/ type msconfig/ ok/

My internet explorer 8 is so slow


Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft. You need to up-grade to Win 7 or buy a new computer.

I have hopelessly slow windows xp, Dell Dimension 2400, 2.52GHz, 384 MB of RAM [2002, owned since 2004] Have deleted all invisible startups, run a clean virus scan, run cleanup/cleandisk, disk...


Hi,

It makes no wonder that the machines slow with only having 384MB of RAM installed.

If you were to max out the memory capacity of the machine which i suspect is DDR SDRAM and probably has a maximum of 2GB as this would make the machine much faster that what it is now.

384MB of RAM is just not good enough to run XP properly these days.

If the machine is still in good working order (apart from it being slow) then you could upgrade the RAM.


Regards.

Computer runs slow . I have a dell 2350 pentium. 256mb ram running windows xp. C drive has 11.7 gb used and 16.8 free.the machine doesnt respond as quickly as it once did


Computers slow down, even after a short time, there is a little guide that will help to speed up, and keep it safe and secure

I would also advise a little more memory, but i have ran a few pc's with 256mb ram and they where still usable.
Try ebay for older types of memory

I turn my computer off and back on i hear the music but i get a black screen


Try and do a XP repair: Boot the PC with a Win XP cd.
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your applications, it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Lost restore dvd supplied with computer.have no choice but to restore


On eMacines, the recovery partition contains your driver and software. But you needed to create the recovery cd set when you got your computer.
To restore it,if your computer came with XP, borrow an Win XP cd (cannot be a HP,Dell etc).
Try a repair first:

If a repair does not work, do a complete install.

Video Drivers


The file “Windows/System/Drivers/mup.sys” is not actually causing the problem. It’s the next step after mup.sys that’s causing the computer to hang. That next step consists of the OS checking the registry files for plug and play devices.
Some causes are: new or defective hardware installed, corrupted registry, (caused by virus), defective or corrupted hard drive, just to name a few.
Try removing all devices attached to the computer like printer, web cam, flash drives, etc.
If your computer has a PCI or AGP graphics card AND your motherbrd has a VGA connector, remove the video card and use the one on the motherbrd.
If the above doesn’t work, try running “CHKDSK /P” from the Windows recovery console.
