Hi...the problem being is that you proberly have to much on your hard drive. Firstly goto control panel then add remove programs. Remove any that you dont use. Then goto system tools and defrag drive. If that dosent work download....spybot search and destroy....adaware and ccleaner these are freeware programs and therefore cost nothing. Once downloaded run these programs and your slow computer will once more run as it should.

This laptop is very slow


Slowness in the laptop can be due to many reasons. You may upgrade your processor( to i5 or i7), but that will be too costly. Try increasing the RAM of your laptop. Also don't overflow your hard drive. Decrease in free space on your hard drive will ultimately slow down your laptop.

Hp_pavilion_tx1000 is slow what can i do to speed it up currently on vista


I would run PC Tools or Norton Utilities and run their Registry cleaner first followed by Defrag then clean your disk with Norton's Clean Your Disks or try Windows Clean up programme.
If your hard drive is very full, more than 80%, you really need a larger one to allow Windows to run with plenty of space.

I hope you find that of some use but I find that as more and more programmes and internet stuff are used the more clogged the system gets. Try putting a backup on a separate USB hard drive and then formatting your drive and reinstalling the system restoring the data you have kept.
Hope that helps.

My laptop is run slow give me solution


Clear some Cache and cookies on your system, Do a disc clean up, click start, programs/all programs, accessories, system tools, Disc Clean up, a window will show a list of program and list temporary internet files nad so on anything that will have an amount of KB/MB/GB on the right put a check on it then click on OK or next at the bottom... then it will clea up all data on your system that is not needed and that may be bulking up your system which slows down your computer, also disable start up items on your computer this also slows down system performance... click start look for Run/Comman Promt under Accessories, right click on it click run as administrator, a windows system configuration utility will show up and on the initial screen there will be a list, look for start up items and un-tick/uncheck,
click on apply then ok the computer will restart after for the changes to take effect... this should speed up you system again, if you also have an anti virus on your computer run it scan for vruses or spyware and mallwares that can also infect your system and cause it to slow down... check your Hard drive space as well if it is going full, compute Hard drive space and check your programs in programs and features or addremove programs and check how big a space your programs eat on you Hard drive if it is full if not it is not necessary to do so.

for vista and win7 operating systems click start look for Run/Command Prompt right click and click run as administrator, on the dos window type vssadmin resize shadowstorage /For=C: /On=C: /MaxSize=2GB
then press enter an new line will show then type exit that would free up space from you Hard drive this is only an additional info regarding the system being slow and may help in the future ^_^

Hard drive full computer slow


You will have to empty a lot of your hard drive to build up your speed. Trash what you no longer want and transfer other things, like photos to CD's or DVD's or a zip drive. Go to staples and ask their techie to show you what options are available.

Acer Aspire 3050 Laptop running slow Changed Hard drive, Memory, and the motherboard It still run's slow, vista basic 2 X 512 pc2 533 could it be the power board? any one had this before? Thanks..


1st go through your 'programs and features' in your control panel and delete anything over around 100Mb unless it is necessary, a lot of ram is taken up by these programs even when they are not being run.

Smart failure predicted on hard disk 4


Yes usually that error means that the hard drive is telling the controller card that there are some problems with the drive.

Although the drive may still work, it is highly recommended to replace it with a new drive.

I would replace the drive but keep the old drive just in case, after re-installing Vista you find that there is additional data you did not backup or remember to backup.

Just replace the drive, and if it's a Dell laptop, use the Dell Vista reinstallation DVD, and it will not ask for a keycode to reinstall.

May also want to go to another computer and go to support.dell.com and click Drivers and Downloads. Type the service tag and go ahead and download all drivers needed (i.e. network card, sound card, etc.) so after you reinstall Vista, if there are any drivers missing you will be ready to install them.

Hope this helps.

Startup Problem with Lenovo 3000 N200 with Vista


You would need to reinstall Vista together with the device drivers and programs to get a laptop functioning again.
You need to backup your data before you reinstall Vista but since you cannot boot up and get into Windows, you need to remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and then plug it into a working computer's USB port. This computer should see this hard drive as an external hard drive (provided the hard drive is OK). You can now see the various folders and files, copy your data files to a USB memory stick or burn them to a CD.
Insert the hard drive back into your laptop and then install Vista.

Slow to load games and play movies


Most common things.
1. First check how much memory you have left on your hard drive. If most of the space is taken up, as painful as it is, you may have to delete some files.
2. If you still have most of your space available on the hard drive... check for overheating, it may be a foresight for the red rings of death.

Bought a floor sample, a few simple questions, please help!


Most new VAIO's do not come with any recovery CD or DVD what so ever.

The Vista installation has a recovery on the Hard Drive, so the use is welcome to create his own backup and recovery CD's. SONY tech support will probably tell you the same.

As you use windows, it will create it's own recovery points, which will also be stored on the Hard Drive, eating up some space. This is normal unless you turn off this Windows feature.

Also, did you delete files or did they just end up in the File Trash Bin ?
Clean out the file trash bin from time to time to free up some of the HD space.

Hope this helps
