Question about Microsoft HP Pavilion DV6276US Notebook PC
The computer will turn on, but halfway through loading the start up applications it stops and if i try to click on anything, the computer freezes and the mouse turns into the wait thing. Also the background wallpaper clouds over after io try to click on anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Sounds like your computer is a old one, or is slow. The problem could be little RAM, which is what the computer calls speed and how fast it will open things, the CPU is too small, which is the main processing unit and causes slow speeds if it is not one of the latest CPUs or your Hard Drive is full and doesn't have enough free room to run anything well. Fist thing i want you to do is run a virus scanner to make sure you have n viruses causing the problem. if its all clear go into my computer, find the C Drive and right click on the icon and go into properties and check its free room. if its less than 250MB delete programs you don't use or don't need anymore. Now go into Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools and open Disk Defragmenter and Click on Defragment to begin the process. This will give you more free room and give it a small boost of speed in opening programs. This can take a very long time, talking hours so best to do it at night. A good way to boost your computers speed is to give it Virtual Memory, Which turns some of your hard drive into RAM. Right Click on My computer>Properties>Advanced and look for Performance and press 'Settings'>Advanced> and find Virtual memory and press change and click on the 'Custom size button' and Put '1024' into 'Initial size(MB) and put '2048' into 'Initial size(MB) and then click set then ok. It may ask you to reset your system. Do this. Now see if your application programs load faster. if not its a hardware problem and take it into a computer Technitian to get some more RAM in it to speed it up.
Hope This Helps
