Computer is slow and it takes a long time to load application when i try to play a game on facebook

You need to clear your Windows Registry, I think. The Windows registry keeps growing as long as you use your computer. Whenever you install or uninstall software, add or remove hardware, or change your computers settings, a new entry is inserted into the Windows registry. Over time, your registry will be accumulated with a large number of obsolete, redundant and invalid entries and registry holes, which make your system increasingly unstable, run more slowly and crash more frequently.

Hey Racebooker,

You can solve this problem by:

-- cleaning system junk
-- optimizing computer services
-- optimizing internet
-- repairing registry
-- defraging registry
-- clearing browsers junk

do these things with some secure tool such as Intel Software Partner Reginout.

Thank You...

My pc was very slowly running

Your machine is old, there's not much you can do. Remove any programs you don't use, stop programs from starting-up with the OS, and increase your RAM:

There are many free and effective registry cleaners. You can use Ccleaner (which I highly recommend). You can download Ccleaner from here (click here). It's bundled with System Cleaner, Registry Cleaner and other utilities. Run the System cleaner and the registry cleaner. Check the startups and also verify all the services from the Task Manager.

Sometimes some virus can't be removed if they really infected some files, in that case, you better reinstall the windows (full format), but remember, during the backup or file transfer, don't simply copy/paste, instead use the wizard like "backup" or "Files and Settings Transfer"..

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My DvD in my hp pavilion dv5000 refuses to play my cd. what do i do?

Removing the drive from Device Manager Follow these steps to remove the drive from Device Manager:
  1. Click Start , type device into the search field.
  2. Click Device Manager from the search results. Device Manager opens. Figure 2: Device Manager
  3. Click the plus sign (+ ) next to DVD/CD-ROM drives category. Figure 3: DVD/CD-ROM drives category
  4. Right-click the drive and then click Uninstall . Figure 4: Device Manager: Uninstall
  5. Click OK to remove the CD listing. Do not restart the computer and do not refresh the hardware list.
  6. Close Device Manager . You must complete the Clearing the registry filters before attempting to burn another disc.
Clearing the registry entries If deleting and scanning for the CD/DVD drivers in the Device Manager does not resolve the problem, you should remove the drivers and uninstall the burning software, and then perform the following steps. Uninstalling the software should force the registry to clear the CD/DVD entries; however, this may not work if the registry is corrupted. Follow the steps to manually clear the registry entries. NOTE: You may need to uninstall and reinstall software applications that are able to burn CDs/DVDs after performing this step. Therefore, do not perform this step if you do not know how to reinstall your CD writing software. Uninstall all CD writing software (Roxio Creator, Cyberlink Power2Go, etc...) using add/remove programs. For more help, you can read Cannot Remove or Uninstall Software .
  1. Click Start , type regedit into the search field, and then select regedit from the list.
  2. If you are prompted for an Administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. The Registry Editor appears.
  3. Click File , Export , type a file name that is easy to remember, and click Save . A copy of the registry has been saved for back-up purposes. If the registry is accidentally damaged or more problems occur after completing the rest of these steps, you can double-click this back-up file to restore the registry.
  4. Locate, and then click, the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} CAUTION: There can be many instances of the registry subkey mentioned in step 4. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM. NOTE: Depending on the software installed on your PC, you may not have any filters installed, both the Upper and Lower Filters, or you may have only the LowerFilter present. If a filter is present, it should be deleted.
  5. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters , and click Delete .
  6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
  7. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters , and click Delete .
  8. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
  9. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
