My pc speed is too slow. sometime it hag very much .please i request you to give mesome solution


Slow Windows Machine! Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Common problem...running slow...real slow...the "f"


You may notice that your laptop is running more and more slowly over time. There could be many reasons for this, including spyware and viruses, files getting disorganized, too many start-up processes, and new programs you have installed since buying the computer. Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to restore fast performance on your PC.

1.Back up your PC before attempting to tweak its performance. This will protect your data in case you inadvertently cause any problems to your computer's configuration while attempting to fix it. To back up your files, click "Start," and then "All Programs," "Accessories," "System Tools," and "Backup."
2.Remove any unnecessary programs that may be slowing down your computer. Click on "Start," then "Control Panel," and "Add or Remove Programs." Scroll down the list of installed programs and click on the "Remove" button next to any program you no longer want or use. This could include free trial software that you never use, or programs that you once used but don't need anymore. Do not delete a program if you're unsure of its function.
3.Run the Disk Cleanup tool to get rid of any other unneeded files that might be filling up your hard drive. Do this by double-clicking on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop, then right-click on "Local Disk" and then choose "Properties." Under the "General" tab, click the "Disk Cleanup" button. The Disk Cleanup tool will examine your hard drive and offer you a list of nonessential files that can be deleted. Check the boxes next to the file types you wish to delete, and then click "OK." This could free up several gigabytes of disk space.
4.Defragment your hard drive. To do this, open "My Computer," "Local Disk," and "Properties" as explained above, and then on the "Tools" tab, click "Defragment Now." In the Disk Defragmenter window, select your hard drive and click "Defragment." This will put contiguous portions of your files close to one another on the hard disk, which speeds up the computer's read time.
5.Disable some programs that start running automatically when you turn on your computer. Although some of these programs are vital and should not be touched (like your anti-virus program), others are not needed at start-up and bog down your boot-up process. Click "Start" and then "Run," and then type "MSconfig" and press "Enter." Examine programs under the "Startup" tab, and uncheck the boxes next to the nonessential programs. Be careful to uncheck only those programs you are sure of not needing at start-up (such as music players). If you are unsure of a program's purpose, leave it alone, because it could be an essential start-up process.
6.Check the RAM memory of your laptop and consider upgrading it. This can improve your computer's performance dramatically. Right-click the "My Computer" icon and then click "Properties." Click on the "General" tab and note the amount of RAM you have on the lower part of the window. If this is less than 1G, you might want to purchase more RAM and add it to your laptop. There is usually a removable panel on the bottom of the laptop where the new RAM can be added. However, you will have to know what type of RAM is compatible with your computer, as well as the correct way to install it. If you are unsure of how to install RAM or what kind of RAM to buy, take your computer to a professional to have the RAM installed.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regads.

Lenovo T61 running slow - 3 years old..


There are so many reasons can cause your Lenovo T61 computer running slow than it used to, it is hard to identify just what might be dragging down your Lenovo's performance, let alone implement the necessary technical adjustments to fix it.

So if you want to address the issues more easily, I'll recommend you try a Lenovo speed up software, available here: http://www.speeduplenovo.com/

Over 10+ small utilities packed into one to help detect & fix all slowdowns in 1 click.

It is running so slow!! It pauses and screen fades to light color! I cannont do my work!! Help!!


This could be for a couple of reasons, 1) you have a virus causing your laptop to crash or 2) you have a faulty Hard Drive.

Try downloading and running Hit Man Pro (an anti-virus software) that should clean up any viruses you have, download it here:

Run the scan and remove and viruses it finds and reboot the computer...see if this makes any difference, if not, try booting up in the recovery partition and repairing Windows.

Let me know if this helps

Computer running real slow and then shuts down


I am guessing from the "clicking" noise that the some sort of anti-virus app trying to scan the HDD and the HDD is virus-infected. If you do not have much stuff on the PC, do you think it is possible to reformat the HDD and re-install the OS? (this is obviously last resort - I am sure expert folks here will come up with better solutions)

Slow Laptop Computer


Hi,

There could be a variety of reason(s) why the laptop is slow. If initially the unit was fast enough for your applications, it maybe that there are a number of programs running simultaneously and/or harmful to your PC. Pls try:
  • run/scan with your antivirus and/or an online virus scanner/remover;
  • Download AdAware by Lavasoft, install, scan and delete unwanted entries;
  • Go to Start, Run, type "msconfig", goto Startup tab and uncheck all programs except those that you feel are necessary such as your antivirus;
  • In your System Properties Advanced tab, Performance Settings button, select "Adjust for best performance", and in the Advanced tab, change your Virtual Memory to double your onboard real memory.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
