Gateway 6438 System Slow down

My gateway laptop has slowed significantly after I stopped a DVD while in use. I cleaned up my start up menu but it still takes about 2 minutes for start up. Additionally my sound sounds distorted. I am using windows XP. No yellow error messages appear on my hardware profile when i check into system. I have added 1 gig of memory to increase speed but this appears to have slowed the system more. I have ran virus scans and ran the standard system clean ups to no avail. Any solutions?

Gateway M6866 laptop lags when changing websites or pages? This happens even with simple sites like yahoo.


Most likey cause is either a slow connection or a lot of folk on line at the time. If you have less than a T1 connection, heavy traffic sites such as yahoo.com or sites heavy in kbs, (sites containing viseo or flash intros) will take along time to load. If you dont have sufficient memory in your computer that will slow down internet browsing too.

Have you called Gateway? This is definitely a mother board or CPU problem, both probably caused by a slow acting fan. Gateway should replace these.

when does your computer freeze can you associate it with some activity that you are doing on it,

restart your system> at gateway logo > start tapping F8 > in this menu select safe mode and try using it in safe mode

You should remove unneccesary programs cause they can cause your computer to slow down. Run a virus check because it might also be infected with these critters..
