Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Laggy computer? Hi i have a problem with my computer.It is about 2 years old now and it was working perfectly fine last year and i was able to play high graphic games(WoW) without any problems. When i could play World of Warcraft, it was virtually lagless and a game like dota and red alert was unaffected. I have deleted WoW now in hopes of solving the problem. However, recently it has begun to slow down or lag and now i often have spikes and disconnects when i join a network to play the game. Another problem is the loading time. For example, it takes about 1 minute to load an internet page and a game(DOTA) and red alert and when i quit game, it takes 5 minutes to load back to the original screen. How can i solve this?

    Erm thx alot electech1. The instructions were really helpful. I actually did it one step further. My com is 1268x720 and my game was 1024x768 initially. So i changed the game to suit my com and it worked much better!

    But there is still one more problem. My com lags periodically and then it freezes and after that its chaos. For example, my com lags for 5 seconds and after that in the next 1 second it tries to catch up for the time lost and eveyrthing speeds up...then because of that "fast forward" my com lags again. However, 1 min later it is fine again. Then about 5 minutes later the whole process repeats itself. I hope u understand this problem?

  • realmadridro Nov 27, 2008

    erm ok i did what u said. I started my com and the CPU usage was about 8-10% and when i started the game it jumped to a constant 47-60%. Every few minutes i would alt-tab to check and i found a few instances when the CPU usuage reached 100%. I realized that a few actually corresponded to the lag spikes in the game. The Mem usage of the game was about 138,000K to 145,000K. Any solution? There were lots of processes almost 42 in total. If this could be solved its a fixya! =p

Have you deleted history , cookies , temporary internet pages? also when is the last time you defraged the computer?
also you can try : right click on c:/ in my computer and click properties then disk clean up and it will calculate , when the next window pops up it will show you the description of files to delete and you can click on the more options tab to also remove old restore points or windows components ( not recomended )
let me know if that works or if we need to see if you have a virus that is causing problems

    the game may take most of your processor speed and then there are windows processesand or updates that might be trying to run also

    how much processing speed do you have and how much is being taken up and by what programs

    to see right click on the task bar and click properties , this will let you see how much processing is going on and by what services

    let me know what you got

  • jason Nov 27, 2008

    thanks for rating

    but that rating hurts our rating as only a fixya helps

  • jason Nov 27, 2008

    sorry i meant the task manager , right click on task bar and click task manager to see the processes and how much processing speed is being taken up

  • jason Nov 27, 2008

    ok then the processes that are running may be for a program that you have like messenger , virus protection dowloading new updates and windows services , or another program that would be open on the task bar near the clock

    if you still suspect that something should not be running and you want to check your computer, you can dowload HIJACK THIS to get a report of what is running and other info plus the option to remove the file or process , but be aware and read this before you remove anything with the software,

    here is a link to download it

  • jason Nov 27, 2008

    if you can post the results I"ll have a look and tell you what I suspect , if any are suspicious

  • jason Nov 27, 2008

    well it looks good , so I don't see anything to worry about or that you should fix, so the only thing that would be taking processing speed is the blue tooth that you could right click on the task bar tray and exit it while not in use , also windows messenger can be exited out of while not in use , also make sure winzip is not open in the tray and exit out of that , you can also go in to properties of programs that start when windows starts up and set them to not start at start up of windows which would also limit the proceessing usage

    so the game takes alot of processing itself and will need all the processor it can use exspecially when alot of info processing is required

    your computer will only allow so much info to be processed and each program needs so much processor speed to process , so when there is to much being processed then you will see a pause durring those times of to much process

  • jason Nov 27, 2008

    oh , this one does look suspicious and usless

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {7E853D72-626A-48EC-A868-BA8D5E23E045} - (no file)

    I would get rid of it and then check again later to see if it comes back

  • jason Nov 27, 2008

    well I must sleep a little now , will be back tomorrow( today) and I will check for anymore comments you have plus I'll get a notification , so till tomorrow

    electech out

Cd-s start-and-stop play intermittently

Hi, you have one of 2 possible problems, either the laser is dirty and needs cleaning, this can be done by going into any computer hardware store and buy a lens cleaning cd, its like a cd with brushes on it that you put in and when it spins round it removes any dust,

or the other problem is going to be that the laser is coming to the end of its life, now as its 8 years old then chances are the problem is with the laser or the motor that spins the cd, these only have a certain life span and dont last for ever, so if cleaning dont work then this means the laser unit needs replacing, so you would have to work out repair costs, and thats even if the parts can be bought and replaced as its 8 years old so you might struggle to get it repaired

Why does this happen..

hi, unfortunately there is no real preventative measures. I have a screen here less than a year old with similar problems and an antique laptop, old IBM with windows 3.1 on it, maybe 20 years old and the screen is perfect, most times the screen will out last the computer but every so often a faulty one arrises.
