Painfully slow samsung v25

Ive had my v25 a while and because it gradually became very slow to use i invested in a new desktop. But now my missus has disscovered ''facebook'' she wants to be able to chat to her sister abroad. I just bought some more ram for it from crucial and it made no difference at all !! :( It has no viruses according to AVG and ccleaner got rid of a lot of junk too .....but still no better ..what could be the cause of it's super slow and very anoying actions.... ( like over 5 mins to start up, about 2 mins to load google home page and if theres anupdate you might aswell just walk away for half an hour ) help me plz....

Hi kev, you could try IMO two options, one is to use a linux live cd such as ubuntu so you can try your machine with a different OS and see if the system improves (which I believe it will greatly) and see if such OS adapts to your needs. The other is to make a fresh install of the OS you like so it starts to work as it used to when new and even better due to some ram upgrade =P Good luck and remember to post your results once you have.

My samsung v25 is too slow for my likings cant do nought on it it takes ages and cant download as it takes ages how can i solve all this


Best bet would be to add ram. Open the back panel and read 2 numbers. The PC___ and the amount of ram in MB. you can go about buying more ram that way though you must have the same PC number like " PC 2700 " but you can usually get 2 GBs in a machine if its pc 2700 or above.

Printer installation problem for Samsung V25 laptop.


Hello,
The issue is with the driver compatibility.
First I would ask if the recovery is latest?
Or else after the recovery update it with the web so as to get the latest service pack like sp3 for windows xp.

Second thing is that you can try to download the latest driver from the lexmark manufacturer.
Sometime with the latest driver update and will correct the the bugs.
Try this...

Samsung V25 fan replacement


It may not be the fan, I have a V25 and it was the motherboard, it wouldnt power the fans anymore when the CPU required it so would crash lots.

If the fans twitch or run for a second or two when you first turn the laptop on then it's the motherboard that is faulty.

Careful with the monitor to motherboard plug as I damaged mine and the screen is now a permanent shade of blue.
