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.

Working slow


reinstall or system reset to clean the main disk from rubbish.
But be carefull to move the important things such as photos you would like to save to a external memory disc/usb.

That might be one problem why it's slow .....

My N100 notebook is very slow in process


if it is a windows computer, try running defragmenter and disk cleanup.
to run defragmenter, in the search box in the start menu (in vista and windows 7) and search "defragmenter" select the c drive, and defragment it.. while you're at it, set up a weekly defragment with the defragmenter schedule.
To run disk cleanup, search for "disk cleanup" in the same search box. select the c drive, and check all the things you want to clean up.
you can always just do a scan with your antivirus to check if theres a virus slowing your system down.

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 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
