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.

Hanging problem


  1. Dirt and clogged fans vents and Heatsinks - When your CPU overheats it will either slowdown to a crawl then hang before shutting down.
  2. Virus and Spyware infection - These nasties tend to run processes that will either slowdown your PC will hang if you run out of resources.
  3. Heavily fragmented drive - throughout the time that your PC is running every time you access a file it tends to settle in a different location than where it originally was. fragmented files launch slower if you run out of resources while the file is launching PC will freeze.
  4. Too many programs running at once or too many startup items are loading in your taskbar. - Startup programs run continously while PC is on leaving you with little to barely enough resources to work with.
  5. Insufficient Memory,CPU or Hard Drive capacity - these three are the heart and soul of your computer they need breathing rooms so their capacities dont get exhausted by normal PC usage.
  6. Failing hardware components and faulty hard drive. - When your PC runs out of memory room it uses the spare space in your hard drive it's called the Page File. If your hard drive is faulty your PC will have problems accessing the Page File it will then Hang.
These are the most common causes of hanging.

Windows running very slow


Have you scanned the PC (all drives) for spyware and viruses?

Spybot search & destroy is a good, free application.

For anti-virus, Trend Micro PC-Cillan or CA Internet Security
(Nortons will drastically slow down your computer)

Have you loaded any other software on the C drive?
Often programs designed to load up & run in the background at startup cause a PC to run slow.

RAM can be another culprit. 1GB minimum is best.

Hope this helps
