The most likely problem is that you are either, buffering from an internet feed (slow internet) or you are overloading the processor. The Pinball would indicate that your processor is too slow. Buy a new graphics card or more RAM. Also run CCleaner to get rid of any rubbish that is slowing down the computer.

My pc is very slow


-Can you provide more information about your issue?
-Are you using Windows XP or Windows Vista or Windows Seven?

When you say slow, is it slow when you are on the internet or slow when accessing or the computer or generally slow like everything is running slow?

Having the same proble with Dell optiplex GX260 very very very slow it takes a day to load Xp SP2 and I added up to 1GB still the PC is very slow. The machine fresh loaded no application loaded only XP...


These things are notorious for having the CPU heatsink grease dry up (and the processor speed steps down) but I'd also scan the hard disk for bad sectors.
If the fan has started sounding like a jet engine, it's more likely that it needs new heatsink grease on the CPU.

No sound and slow start up


try to check the speakers if there is missing with it's parts, if not check the volume of your computer. Then if not again repair it to the technical expert. And about the slow start up maybe there is something wrong with your connection to the internet

Sounds like a slow internet connection. Try pausing the video until it has buffered at least halfway and then play again.

Hope this helps,
