Slow...might be a very relative word
did you  try checking for any malware,viruses etc. on  your computer those are the basic cause  of making a system slow   you could  check  what are programs are starting at start up and wheter the are actually usefull or not
i would suggest you try  AVAST 8  and carry out a boot time scan  .
this will get the viruses  before they are executed a  very  good feature. perform a disk clean up
defragment
there are many ways.
even if you follow a  few of the you would find a good improvement in speed

Dell computer.5 yrs.old. Very,very,slow.What can be done? Have dial up internet service. Also, what does memory upgrade mean?


Hi,

There's nothing you can do about your internet speed, dial up is dial up and is known to be slow. If you want fast internet then you would need broadband.

A memory upgrade would speed up the overall performance of the PC. For example: the computer may take 5 minutes to fully boot up and programs taking time to launch. This would not fully resolve but help it to be more responsive.

A memory upgrade is always recommended by me. I expect that your computer can be probably maxed out to 2GB of memory.


Regards.

Computer runs slow . I have a dell 2350 pentium. 256mb ram running windows xp. C drive has 11.7 gb used and 16.8 free.the machine doesnt respond as quickly as it once did


Computers slow down, even after a short time, there is a little guide that will help to speed up, and keep it safe and secure
http://www.fixya.com/support/r5272277-secure_clean_computers
I would also advise a little more memory, but i have ran a few pc's with 256mb ram and they where still usable.
Try ebay for older types of memory

My pc is slow work


it it is xp the follow the following steps
When you start to shut down Windows XP, it has to quit, or "kill," any live
applications or processes that are currently running. So close all applications first.
However, some applications and processes are always running in the background.
You can reduce the amount of time that Windows XP waits for those applications and
processes to close before Windows XP kills them.
1. Open registry editor
2. Navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop. Set the
WaitToKillAppTimeout and set the value to 1000. Select the HungAppTimeout
\newline value and set it to 1000 as well.
3. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control.
Select the WaitToKillServiceTimeout value and set it to 10000.
4. Close the Registry Editor.


Memory Tweak
1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) and locate the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\
MemoryManagement\PrefetchParameters
2.On the EnablePrefetcher value, change the setting from 3 to 5 (decimal).
3. Close the registry editor and restart your computer

I have built a computer useing a foxconn mother board No 945g7ma-8ks2h. My Windows Vista Home Premium (bought boxed and new from comets store) will only part load the freeze, Will this board support this...


You might not have enough RAM, (Random Access Memory) RAM is memory that the computer temporarily stores for future commands, and I know Vista takes about 1-2 GB of RAM to run, if it can't handle it, I'd suggest using windows XP.
