Question about AMD Athlon 64 4000+, 2.4 GHz (ADA4000DEP5AS) OEM / Unboxed Processor

2 Answers

Everythimg is slow

My computer is really really slow, it takes sometimes 5 to 10 minutes just for me to be able to get to my home page and then after that another 5 minutes after i sign in and whenever I go to different sights its really slow.
What can I do?? I've built this PC based on the AMD Athlon 64 4000+ processor on an MSI RS480M2-IL mobo. I've got 3GB of RAM and this things runs too slow to do anything. After failing at trying to install a Linux build (my own ineptitude I'm sure) I installed Vista Home Premium SP1. I tried running the MS Rating app, but it times out and doesn't run. I do have an old IDE HDD in it, but I can't believe that's hte issue. The task manager performance chart shows the processor running at 100% all the time, even though memory is only barely being used.

Anyone have any thoughts?

    There is nothing installed or running on the PC yet, so i don't think spybot or avg would find anything - it's a clean OS install. The HDD is old, small (40GB) and probably slow, but I'm not convinced that is what is making the CPU run at 100% even when nothing is going on.

Try running Spybot (http://www.spybot.de) and avg on it. run Spybot several times (rebooting after every attempt) untill it finds nothing. If you built the machine are you sure that the processor heat sink is correctly installed and not over heating? What is the speed of the drive?

Older computers get full of rubbish/malware/running programs and this slows the computer down soooo much. Try follow this little guide http://www.fixya.com/support/r5272277-secure_clean_computers
Adding a little more memory can also work wonders.
Windows xp like at least 512mb, vista and windows 7 like 2gb

Web pages slow down, FIX.
The tweak is simple. Beside the QoS and others around the Internet for the new XP OS, I found out that native drivers sometimes slow you down (cable and xDSL users). So if you have applied all tweaks and you are still having slow downs try reinstalling your NICs drivers.
I have reinstalled my NIC drivers (I own a CNET generic NIC, native driver is installed with OS) with the latest found on their website, and now I can really apretiate all my available bandwith. The difference is noticeable. My web pages now load almost instantly where they used to take even a minute!
As allways, this tweak worked well for me, but may not work with everybody, just try! You can go back to native drivers anytime.
Good Luck!

It is agonizingly slow. Takes 8-10 minutes to get


Generally, a slow computer is either overheating (Use compressed air to try can clean out the air intakes and exhaust vents) or a HDD that is almost full (Go to MY COMPUTER, right click C:, Properties, and see if at least 15% of the Hard drive is free)
Some utilities like Advanced Windows Care (Download.com) may help improve performance
You can also check the BIOS and ensure speedstep is disabled

I can get on farmville site but it will not allow me to open my farm. It stays on the farmville home page with still farms. I am able to send gifts but not visit my farm or any other farm that I am friends...


sometimes it is very slow to open - watch the bar at the bottom where it says loading below the main farmville logo and when it finished - then your farm will appear - sometimes it takes 2-3 minutes if the servers are busy or you are on a slow connection

Everythimg is slow


Beatriceccc: This can frequently happen when Vista runs on a computer that's hardware just can't keep up with it. I'd like to have you try this for me. Click on your start menu, then "Right click" on "computer" in the left column.This will take you to a page, that will give you something called the Microsoft Rating. If you can comment back to this post with the details of the overall rating, as well as the specific categories, we'll be able to provide better assistance.
Was this computer pre-installed with vista? or did you upgrade from XP? What is the model number of your machine? All of this will help us to help you.

Epson R320 prints REALLY SLOW!


That printer is known for being slow. If you believed a salesperson, they may have not done research either. But the printer is known for acceptable output for a really good price. Heres a review:
