Question about Toshiba Satellite 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Slow computer My toshiba 1410 15" laptop has slowed down excessively and I would like to wipe the hard drive. I have since bought a new dell desktop, and I do not have the OS disk for the toshiba (windows xp) as it was given to me by my sister w/out it. I have no need for any of the info on the toshiba but would still like to use it instead of waiting 10+ mins for it to load. Is there any way to wipe the hard drive or partitions w/out the OS disk?

Dell inspirion 1545 respond slow and shuts down even when on the desktop


The most probable, as far as I know, the hard drive is dying. Please test the laptop with a healthy (or brand new) hard drive.

I have had the hard drive cleaned, re-installed new Operating system - Windows 7, updated software and my computer is getting slower and slower again. I did all of this becuase it was slow - any thoughts?


Slow computers are sometimes due to bad hard drives. Run a hard drive diagnostic test on your computer to make sure the hard drive isn't bad. Download this hard drive diagnostic from Western Digital: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=612&sid=3&lang=en

Also, make sure you have enough RAM to support your growing number of installed programs. Download and run this system scanner to check if you can add more ram to your PC:

My dell 610 laptop has started running slow


if you are experiencing these and unsure on what to do, better take your laptop a laptop tech, if you feel that you needed a hard drive change, then take it to a tech, have them replace your old hard drive

Slow Dell computer 4600


Normally computers get slow for the following reasons.
1) Infected with malware/viruses. Run free programs available from (CNET) www.download.com. These include MalwareBytes, SPybot Search and Destroy, Adaware.
2) Computer hard drive is full or seriously fragmented. Try removing unneeded programs (especially pictures) and then attempt a defragmentation.
3) Hard disk failing or getting old. Sometimes this is due to environment. Smoky, dirty or dusty environments will eventually contribute to build up of heat inside the computer and excessive heat kills computers. Also hard drives are mechanical and they do wear out over time. Laptop drives take more abuse because they are moved around more than desktops. If they start getting noisy then it is time to prepare to replace it. If you haven't done it yet GET YOUR IMPORTANT DATA OFF NOW!!!!
4) Overclocked or over heated processors. Dust buildup in the cooling fans and heat sinks can cause the temperature to rise and when processors get heated up they slow down and evenyually crash.
5) Running out of memory. As our computers get older we keep adding programs and eventually (if we dont upgrade the memory) the computer runs out of memory.
So if I were in your shoes I would do the following:
1) run some of the malware removal programs I suggested (if your hard drive has the available space for them) and also run your anti-virus program.
2) Remove unneeded files from the hard drive and then run the disk defragmentation tool. I once had a customer that had jammed her hard drive full of pictures and when it crashed it had no room to rebuild itself.
3) if all that does not improve the speed then see about getting an upgrade for the memory.

New desktop computer--has gotten incredibly slow-have av program


1: Download and run this: http://www.stevengould.org/index.php?Itemid=69&id=15&option=com_content&task=view
2: Download and run AntiMalware and RogueRemover Free from here:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/
3: Defragment your drive.

Compression isn't such a good idea on a drive, it doesn't always de-compress correctly.

It may be worth testing your memory with MemTest: http://www.memtest.org/

Let us know how it goes :)

Laptop inspiron 9300 runs very slow


See if the hard drive needs to be defraged. You can do that by going to computer, selecting your hard drive with the mouse. Press the right mouse button and select properties. Select tools. Select defragmentation.
