PC slowness can be caused by viruses, harddisk full or memory capacity can not handle programs with large file interms of capacity repectively. what you can do, scan for virus, remove unnecessary files. if it does'nt work then you need to upgrade your memory stick by replacing it with a higher capacity.

Try downloading CCleaner after installing it run the program and clean the registry also make sure to go to the tools>startup and see how many programs are being loaded when your PC starts up. I will bet you will have a lot of updater programs and **** that is loading and running on your PC slowing it down. I fyou come across a process that is loading on startup that you do not know what it is google it. Google will tell you what it is and if it is necessary. CClener is recommended by PC world magazine and it is a very good program. Give it a try and let me know how it works.

Laptop computer runs slow


Mostly laptop runs slow issue occurs due to broken Windows registry entries. Fixing registry will help you to boost up your laptop. You need to download and install a Registry Cleaner program to fix corrupt or broken registry entries. To download a reliable registry cleaner, go to famous website download.cnet and search there Reginout. Which I personally use and recommend the friends. After downloading run all of its tools one by one except Internet Optimizer, to clean all the junks and registry errors from your computer.

How do I control fan speed?


Keeping the fans clean is especially important, because the fans blow out hot air and bring in fresh air to cool down the laptop.


Fans attract dust, however, which can slow them down, resulting in a hot laptop.

If the laptop overheats, vital parts can cease functioning altogether.


Consequently, keeping your laptop's fans clean is crucial.



The fan speed on a laptop can determine how it operates consistently and reliably.

You can slow it down or speed it up, based on the circumstances.


For instance, slowing down the fan speed may be useful in reserving processes or during a prolonged slow time.


Speeding it up is beneficial in keeping the laptop cool during ongoing use or high-traffic times. For the long term, find a happy medium for regular use, so you won't "psyche" out your computer by constantly adjusting the settings.


Click on the Start menu and select "Control Panel." Next, choose "Performance and Maintenance."


Select "Power Saver."


To slow the fan speed, locate the slider next to "CPU Processing Speed" and slide it down by moving across to the left.


To speed up the fan, move the slider to the right.


Press "Apply" and then "OK," if prompted.


Hope this helps

My Laptop gets hanged on inserting a pendrive


this is probably cause of a virus or an anti virus

virus consumes cpu usage so it slows down the laptop

anti virus software scans the pendrive on insertion hence slows down the laptop

the third reason could be that the pendrive is broken

My laptop is very slow...


1st off - do a restore on the computer to bring it back to factory settings. This will clean it up and speed it up as well. 2nd you need more ram . Ram is very cheap and Vista needs lots of ram to run.
Thishis should solve your problem. Total cost to you is about $50.00

Laptop boots slow


Hi,

A couple of reasons why any PC will boot slowly:
1. slow processor, low memory, slow hard drive;
2. too many programs starting up. Pls try goto Start, Run, in next small window, type "msconfig" less the quotes, OK. In next window, click on the "Startup" tab, un-check everything (except perhaps your anti-virus or anything else you think is important). Click on buttons, Apply and then OK. If for some reason you would like to return some programs back, you can always go back and check them.
3. it would also be of great help to check for any possible virus or malwares (download , install and run Ad-Aware).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Speeding up internet


Here are a few suggestions on how to speed connection:

- Move router or pc location if possible. Closer = better connection usually

- Try changing the channel your router is broadcasting on. Sometimes there are slower channels and faster channels in heavy traffic area

- If you have any toolbars in your browser (i.e., yahoo or google), remove them. Those toolbars use up resources that can slow you down.

- Delete cookies and internet files

If these don't work, post a comment on here with your operating systems on laptop and desktop and router type.
