Have you tried turning off any background programs that you do not need running in the system tray... Check out your system tray and exit any programs that you do not need.

    have you thought about buying a software program to clean up the registry and make you computer faster? Uni-blue is a good program.

The start up was loading and it is slow..and my friend said that the hard disk of my netbook is the problem..what will i do?


The slow start can be a caused by the processor speed, ram, graphics, bios, many things can cause it to load up slowly if your friend thinks its the hard drive without physically hearing the sounds it makes then its probably is, i would recommend you buy a new hard drive for your laptop and installing your operating system depending on how big you want the hard drive to be can be a bit expensive getting a hard drive with at-least 2-4 meg cache will greatly speed it up too.

Greetings, i have a problem in my ACER ASPIRE netbook, where it suddenly started to work very slow and specially the sound where it is very slow and distorted for any media such as sound tracks and even...


This is not normal. I recommend running a virus scan (Malwarebytes is an excellent free scanner) to make sure it's not a virus slowing things down. If after the virus scanner runs/cleans things are still slow, it might be worth it to look into a clean-up utility, but beware, there are many viruses/crapware out there that claim to be a clean-up utility, so it's best to buy a clean-up utility from a store in CD form.

My computer is very very slow.


Block the Startups and Services

When your computer is started up, there might be a number of programs and services running in the background. Some of them would be update checkers, error reporters and the rest are necessary tools like your antivirus etc.

The idea is to disable running the start-ups and service that you no longer need.

  1. Click Start ' Run.
  2. Type MsConfig and press ENTER.
  3. Disable the start-ups and services from the Startup and Services tabs respectively.
  4. Click OK button and restart the machine.

Defragment the Disks

My computer is slow to start up if the disks are too fragmented. Fragmentation refers to dividing a file into several parts which cause slow down in retrieving their contents.

The problem can be solved by defragmenting such fragmented disks using the Disk Defragmenter.

  1. Click Start ' All Programs ' Accessories ' System Tools ' Disk Defragmenter.
  2. Select all the drives.
  3. Click Defragment disks button.

Defragment your Registry

Registry is the database in your operating system containing significant configurations and information. Registry fragmentation too cause my computer is slow to start up issue.

Defragmenting the registry is too simple. You have to download a third party Registry Defragmenter software and install it o your system.

Set Up the System for Best Performance

Setting Windows for maximum performance rather than best appearance could fix the problem. Whenever my computer is slow to start up I perform the same task. The steps are provided below:

  1. Right click My Computer.
  2. Select Properties.
  3. Click Advanced System Settings link at the left hand side of the window.
  4. Click Advanced tab.
  5. In Performance frame, click Settings button.
  6. Select the option Adjust for best performance and click OK ' OK.

Disinfect the System

Sometimes computer is infected by a virus and I feel that my computer is slow to start up.. Change the existing antivirus software and download a good one. Update its virus definitions and conduct a full scan through it. Remove all the infected files that found.

Format the Operating system and start fresh

Some useless programs or virus's may be slowing down your system
a reset will enable you to regain full speed of your pc again.
And don't forget even with loads of memory the CPU may be lacking to run most of today's programs all at once.

First thing I would do is take the desktop outside and clean it out with two cans of compressed air.

HEAT can really slow a machine down. Let me know if that makes a difference (good to do either way) and we'll go from there.

Dell pc to slow


Yes, you can get (any) help. You must run a Registry Cleaner. It will clean your Windows registry which seems to be having irrelevant entries. You can down load one free from www.download.com or you can search google for free registry cleaners. I had the same problem and my laptop used to take over 20 mins to boot. I cleaned it with one RC and now it gallops like a new laptop. I do not think that you have any hardware problem.

My Laptop is suddenly taking 15 minutes to load up after turning


clean the pc up to speed it up a little, download ccleaner and install it, run the cleaner and delete all the files it finds, then clean the registry and fix the issues found, if it asks you to save the changes to the registry click yes and fix do this a couple of times so no issues are found.
If the pc is still slow after this clean then the issue is either memory or the operating system is degrading.

Slow start-up


check if you have a CD left in the cdrom drive.
Lots of things can cause the start-up delay too:
- virus and spywares. Clean.
- bad sectors on hard disk (backup and plan for replacement)
- low physical memory. check in the Performace tab of the Taskbar (window$$$ only) PF should not be more than that of physical
