    Did Vista come with this computer? Is this a vista certified laptop? Or was Windows XP upgraded to windows Vista? Most of these issues are driver related, if it worked fine in XP and has issues with vista.

    Hope this tidbit helps, feel free to ask again if i can help you further

When you get it to start, click START-settings-controll panel-SYSTEM-hardware (tab at top)-then press the "device manager" button. you are looking for any yellow astericks, question marks, or exclamation points next to a listed device. These depict hardware that either has a bad driver, no driver or is not working. please check these and post again with your findings.

My pc.. desktop is very slow.. its a windows vista


You may want to look into upgrading your RAM if there is less than 2GB installed. This is a recommendation that I have found in working with several PC's running this Operating System. Also, you would want to run disk clean up and remove any temporary files that Windows finds. Deleting any other temporary or unused files from your PC on a regular basis should increase system performance. In addition, if these steps do not solve your problem, you may want to consider upgrading to a faster performance hard drive (preferably a SATA II with a 32MB cache). As a last resort, you may look at your CPU to see if there is an upgrade for it, as well. Keep in mind that Vista is a resource hog and can slow down a PC within just a short period of time.

Hp 530 laptop is very slow and freezes


Well, The problem can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated hardware, overload startup programs, corrupt registry issues, too many junks, virus attack, poor security software taking too much system resources, remnants of uninstalled applications etc. The fact is, you should keep some system maintenance job regularly. If you don't want to do these manually, try the hp speed up tool http://www.speeduphp.com/ to give a free & full scan of your slow HP PC to find & fix all possible issues.

Meanwhile, upgrading hardware configuration (add RAM, change a new video card, larger-volume HDD etc) can be a fast yet effective way to improve your pc performance. But that won't be the most economical way, as you know you can't always afford to do that.

Why does my laptop keep freezing? I use a free registry cleaner and ccleaner weekly,defrag regularly and have good anti virus and anti spy protection, I have loads of memory left but still freezes once or...


If the system has 2 memory modules, try them one at a time and see if the issues only occur with one module or the other. If the issue is isolated to 1 module, then replace it.

Other things to try, Update the system BIOS to most current version if not done already and most current video driver

Mute button freezes my computer


If its a laptop and it came with vista, its most likely XP isnt compatible witht the hardware do to that it was designed for VISTA.

Try going to the laptop companies website and searching for drivers for it that are XP instead of vista and install them.

You bassically downgraded the machine so XP doesnt know how to use your hardware till you install XP drivers for it.

Good Luck
