Save your data , reload o/s and check if speed is acceptable. If not upgrade to max ram and check speed again. If no results ;sell it.

Make sure that you have at least 20% of the hard drive free, carry out a defrag and then a scandisk. Check that the processor fan is clear and running fast as a hot processor runs slower (self preservation)

If your system is too slow for you


Are you still looking for a proper computer repair solution for your slow computer? Well, to repair your slow computer, you can follow these easy steps and make it run faster again in just minutes. You do not need to purchase a new computer to replace the slow one.

Another computer repair solution is to disable unnecessary Windows services and remove programs on the startup. How long does your computer take to enter the whole system? My PC boost up time is less than 30 seconds normally. By typing msconfg in the start-run menu, you can get to the right place to disable unnecessary Windows services and startup programs. This computer repair method can speed your slow computer up.

To repair computer slow problem, you also can update the device drivers regularly. There would be some conflicts among those outdated device drivers and that is the reason why you often get blue screen of death. If you want to repair and avoid system errors such as blue screen of death, system boost failure, don't be lazy to update device drivers in your computer.

Running slow


There are lots of little things that slow down a computer, mostly it is programs that are running, but day to day clutter can slow your computer down too. A good thing to try is to download a good program like Ccleaner or Reginout. I personally Use Reginout because i don't believe on free products. It will analyze your computer, and clean up all that it can safely clean, inducing your registry.
It works well, and is 100% reliable.

Slow computer If you have a virus program installed, it is most likely is running a scan on your hard disk. It can slow down your computer especially if you have a large hard drive. After scanning is completed then the computer will be faster.
To make your computer (hard disk) lean and mean, uninstall any programs you do not use.
Also you need to maintain your hard disk by running Disk Cleanup this will remove old temp files and old compressed files etc.
This will reduce the number of files the virus scanner has to scan. Plus running Defrag. this makes your files contiguous so the system can access files off the hard drive quicker because it does not work as hard.. Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out at least once a month.
If you have 512Mb of RAM installed then installing more RAM will speed up your computer. After installing your graphics card, you may need to disable the built-in graphics card in the BIOS for the new graphics card to work properly.

The best way to speed up a slow running computer is to clean it for viruses. Also optimize your system, browser and registry using some reliable cleaner such as Reginout Cleaner.

> Turn on Windows Updates.

> Keep your device drivers updates.

My laptop is running slow? when im in the internet my computer runs slow


Available RAM is very important for speeding up your laptop while surfing. Check your available RAM by:

  1. Starting the Task Manager (Right click on taskbar and select it)
  2. Select the Performance Tab
  3. Compare the Physical Memory vs Commit Charge numbers.

For example, my fast computer has 3600 megs of total physical memory compared to a commit charge of 1200 megs. Meanwhile, my older, slow computer has only 650 megs of total physical memory with a commit charge of 1400 megs. This means the slow computer is always making 'pretend' memory from hard drive space, and that is why it is so slow. This is most likely the case with your computer as well.

I hope that helps.

How do i know what programs i can take out of this laptop? it is running so slow.


Hi,

You can see what programs run in your system by pressing ctrl+alt+del keys together. then click task manager which will have the list of all the applications running. If you find a particular application making your computer work slow, then click on that application in the list and then click end task which will close that application.

One solution for your computer running slow could be reformatting your operating system. Your system might have been affected by virus which could be the reason for your system's bad performance.


Hope it helped!
