Acer Aspire Z3731-Ur21p all in in one touch screen desk top Lagging badly. What could the problem be?


Many possibilities. Over time, the hard drive gets fragmented and needs to be de-fragmented to perform better. WIN 7 does this automatically on a periodic basis, but if you have WIN XP, you need to do it manually. Also, you may have too many processes running. Many of the convenient add-ons that we let the system install also install other, not-so-necessary things like toolbars or search engines that we do not want or need. You must be careful when doing these updates because they slip these little gems in very discreetly on you. The more processes you have running, the less memory you have for the things you want to do. These processes also share processor time and thus slow response. Look at the "Programs & Features" window (WIN 7) or the Add/Remove Programs" window (WIN XP). Chances are you'll see some things there that you don't want or need. Take the time to remove them and you may see some improvement. Sometimes spyware or viruses can bring your system to a crawl. Malwarebytes (malwarebytes.com) provides a safe, free version of their program that will search your system and prompt you which files/apps are causing you grief. Lastly, if all else fails, sometimes the OS itself is just getting sloppy from things like partially installed updates, corrupted files, etc. When all else fails, a reload of the system to original condition is a great cure-all. Just be sure to get all your personal files, mail, photos, etc, copied off before you do that since that operation will erase everything.

My sony vaio has become so slow, used to respond so quickly, especially when first signing on.


There should be no need to run memtest again. 7 passes should be considered a sufficient test.

Some antivirus suites have been known to actually cause crashes in Windows 7 with certain system configurations.
If removing your antivirus solves your problem, you have found your culprit. You can switch to microsoft security essentials if you need to. It's not the greatest thing ever but it does work.

My lap top is too slow


Try defragmentibg the hard drive. It will be under your accessory tools section. It should talk a wgile so I recommend letting it run while you sleep. If this does not work, you may have a problem with the hard drive itself. I would recommend saving any files you need to a jump drive first. Then replace the hard drive. And other questions shoot ten my way.

Runs slow, i do the basic like defrag, clean disk, delet history. internet files, thing of that nature but my hp is slow like my processor is out dated or my processor is trying to hard to complete simple...


Your computer has only 512MB of RAM.That will just barely run your XP,forget about doing anything else.You need a minimum of 1GB,2GB is even better.Your computer works in RAM not your hard-drive.The hard-drive is for storage,the RAM is for running your programs.
