    Here are a couple of things to try, some of the steps require third party programs that I highly recommend:




    1. Clean out temp files and registry....these are most common causes of a computer starting to run slow...luckily there is a program that automates this whole process and does it fairly quickly...you can download it here

    2. Run spyware and anti-virus scans , for this I recommend this program

    3. Remove unneeded programs

    4. Run a "Chkdsk"...this checks your hard drives for errors and corrects them...you can do this by going to "Start" >>> "Run" >>> type "CMD" and press enter >>In the black screen type "chkdsk/f" >>>hit "Y" >>>restart >>>the scan will run before entering Windows

    5. Defrag the computer >> Goto "Start" >>> "All Programs" >>> "Accessories" >>> "System Tools" >>> "Disk Defragmenter"

I am a repair service technician for hewlett packard, i pretty much work on this model everyday.. i would try an OS reload.. which means hitting f-11 at the BIOS screen.. if you dont have a repair partition then you will have to make the disk yourself.. back up files first if you have anything important..

Running slow


There are lots of little things that slow down a computer, mostly it is programs that are running, but day to day clutter can slow your computer down too. A good thing to try is to download a good program like Ccleaner or Reginout. I personally Use Reginout because i don't believe on free products. It will analyze your computer, and clean up all that it can safely clean, inducing your registry.
It works well, and is 100% reliable.

My ThinkPad T42 cooling fan works slow... i feel like air flow is very slow when i touch the vents... i opened the laptop and checked the fan and it was really slow.. what should i do now please help......


You should replace the fan if it is defective.

You can check inside your Bios or System Setup to see if there are any options on controlling the fan. If the laptop is not giving you any error messages or overheating the fan might be ok.

Performance is very slow of Dell Inspiron N4020 with Win7 OS. Please help me out.


Hi there,


Did you get this laptop with the Windows 7 installed or you upgraded from a lower version to Windows 7?


Windows 7 requires a huge amount of RAM (memory) and a good compatible video card. (because of the aero feature). If you don't meet the recommended system requriements, there is a big possiblity that your system will slow down.


If you have a good hardware and it is still slow, check your computer for possible virus infection or any application that consumes system resources. (e.g. Antivirus Software when running a full scan)


Hope this helps.

Can you help me to speed my internet access and my laptop is 2 days old i cant open my skype my laptop is hp compaq 610


Internet speed is dependent on the provider. If you have DSL and there are several people or computers using the Internet, it will be slow.
Your HP610 has enough processing power and LAN speed to get online fast.
If you have had this laptop two days, was it always slow? Or did it become slow?
If it became slow, go to Malwarebytes.org and scan your laptop for malware. If you do not have a malware prevention program on the laptop, it will get trojans which will slow it down to a crawl.
You can see the various products to prevent this here.
