What couldn't be wrong with it...
Well, firstly, if the fan is not humming away loudly then there's an issue with either the fan driver being scewed (meaning you need to return it to the manufactuer) or not plugged in (if not on at all, and then you'll need to open it up and well, plug in the fan, I've seen this once happen on a BRAND new lappy.)

There could also be copious amounts of dust inside the heatsinks, so take some canned compressed air (available from most hardware or electronic stores for about 15 bucks) and blow into the vents (while being sure to use a straightened paperclip inside a vent to keep the fan from spinning to avoid fan burnout.) Dust really does make a LOT of heat.
Now if this has been always or recently also matters, if always then it's probably a slight oversight (could be a number of things like cpu paste or heatsink issues or even driver problems) by the manufactuer and they will need to take care of it (since I'm not so keen into going through how to do that with novices). If recently, then try using system restore to revert your drivers, and again, using the can of compressed air.
Heat is the enemy of electronics, and the faster they go typically the more heat they generate. Your computer is slowing itself down to avoid killing itself with that "extreme" heat, it's a smart feature that's been around for the past 10 years. (more or less). If all that doesn't work, then try running the laptop in a slightly colder environment, and see if that does anything. Also investing in a laptop cooler might be worthwhile, seeing as this seems to be a hot machine, no matter if it's slowing down or not. Hope this helps.
Stay Spicy and happy lappying!

How to clean up start up processes

Questions about optimize start up:
How to remove program from start up?
My computer boots very slow? How do I clean up start up processes?
Windows startup very slow, how to fix it?

Why clean up start up processes?
Windows Startup program will load the default programs or processes you add to your computer. The test result shows a new system only boot within 30 seconds. As you install antivirus program or other applications, it becomes very slow. Sometimes, the startup gets bloated not due to your computer behaviors. Malicious software is prone to add useless processes on startup without your known. You are not aware that your computer becomes more and more slow until serious computer problem occurs. Don’t ignore a slow start up, it is the root of Blue Screen and computer freezing.

How to clean up start up processes?
The first thing you should do is to remove spyware or adware from your computer. I prefer to AVG, it is a free anti-virus program. If you want to clean virus completely, you need boot in safe mode and disconnect your Internet.

Hok is a professor with over ten year’s computer experience. He suggest us use ErrorFix. This is a pc optimize tool which can clean up system registry entries, useless program, start up processes and junk files. With this program, your computer will be obviously improved. Just a few clicks, you can remove processes that slow your computer.

What’s more to speed up your computer?
Do not download Peer-to-Peer Download Software! Maybe you are using some software such like YouTube Downloader. These are probably some of the least likely contenders for system-slowdown but they are popular on the internet. Those kinds of program can take up memory space and damage your computer. Also they can automatically add itself as your start up.

My note book(Aspire One D260) become slow processing,i con't access some aplication, browsing, their is no "RUN" option in Start menu and when i start the system Screen resulution gets changed...

you probally have a trojan, and that whats changing your settings. Trojans usually work like worms, going active after reboot or upon opining something with it inside, and trojans , unlike worms, get worse instead of destroying itself. So each reboot will only get worse, and they usually back themselves up somewhere in you windows folder or even in your reg files. Most are impossible to remove, and reformatting is sometimes the only option, any futher questions feel free to email me at

Can you help me to speed my internet access and my laptop is 2 days old i cant open my skype my laptop is hp compaq 610

Internet speed is dependent on the provider. If you have DSL and there are several people or computers using the Internet, it will be slow.
Your HP610 has enough processing power and LAN speed to get online fast.
If you have had this laptop two days, was it always slow? Or did it become slow?
If it became slow, go to and scan your laptop for malware. If you do not have a malware prevention program on the laptop, it will get trojans which will slow it down to a crawl.
You can see the various products to prevent this here.

My acer aspire 5720-4126 laptop computer is very slow in booting after i had it reformatted. when using it, the system sometimes hangs and after a few seconds it recovers again. and sometimes it suddenly...

The most common reason for slow processing speed is insufficient RAM memory.

Increase the RAM, if RAM available is no more than 512MB, then it must be upgraded.

Check also your hard drive state. If you have less than 1GB free, that will slow down the system. Go to Start>>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defregmenter and do a Defrag of the hard disk.

If you have at least 1 GB RAM, and you took care of the hard drive, then you can check the process starting up on their own and remove the useless one, or spot mala-ware that can affect speed. You can use a software like Hijack This, and search on google te function of each process started on the list reported by the software.

You can download Hijack this here MajorGeeks | If download does not start, then click at the top of the page, where it says Click Here If It Does Not.
Be careful if you delete the wrong files using this software you can harm the system, and Windows may not work properly.

If you think you have malaware you can also install Spy Bot, and do a system scan. Download Spybot from The home of Spybot.

If all the above does not work, and there is no malaware, then you usually reinstall the system.

Check also the bios settings, BIOS can downgrade the CPU speed on default , even if this is uncommon on recent BIOS.

If a computer is still slow with a fresh system and enough resources then it is one of those rare occasions when you have an hardware fault.
Hardware that can cause slow down is: RAM CPU Motherboard HD Video card.

Some tips on procedure can damage your windows installation. Do not download Hijackthis software and do not change BIOS settings and do not touch hardware unless you are sure of what you are doing.
