If you are in Windows XP go to:

Start-> Run-> msconfig [enter]

You can disable certain programs from starting up and you can also stop services like Help and Wireless Zero Config off if you do not use them...

In the bios you can turn off certain IDE devices that have nothing attached like IDE0 Slave or IDE1 Slave and this can also help... If you are experience super long Auto Detection Times for devices you may have some jumpers set wrong. Use PerfectDisk Lite (free) to make sure your HDD is not fragmented and you need to make sure you do not have any viruses... In Task Manager you can monitor CPU / Mem Usage on the Performance tab.

You could try and defrag the system. You could also try uninstalling any programs you don't need in the control panel. You could remove any temporary files from your computer. I would also try removing any programs you don't need when the computer starts up from the startup. I hope this helps.

Why take so long to change online screens?


You need to run a scan for malware on the computer. go to www.malwarebytes.org and use the free version. If you boot to safe mode with networking it might let computer run faster so that can do this in a reasonable amount of time.

None of the windows will work on my 2003 Toyota Camry


Check your fuse panel under the dash on the driver side and in the engine compartment. One time I had a customer with a similar problem, I checked all the fuses, they were fine. I disconnected the battery positive cable and let stand for five minutes. I turned the key on but didn't start the vehicle, I left the key on for another five minutes for the computer to boot and run diagnostics. After the five minutes were up I started the engine, the windows worked fine. I've worked on lots of Toyota and have found their electrical systems are good, but finicky.

How do I put my Asus notebook back into factory settings?


Asus has become one of the "Top 5" computer manufacturers worldwide. CNET attributes this growth to the Netbook craze. The company's name comes from the last four letters of "Pegasus," the winged horse from Greek Mythology. You can restore your Asus laptop to the original factory settings in about five minutes.

Restart your ASUS laptop and press the "F9" key while the computer is booting up. This will open the boot screen. Select "Recover Windows to Entire HD" and press "Enter." Press "Y" three times when asked if you are sure that you want to restore. The laptop will restore the factory settings. The computer will then shut down and start up again. Approve the license agreement, then select your "Language preference." Enter your name into the box and click "Next." Enter your password twice on the next screen and select "Next." Enter the time zone and date information, then select "Next." Select "Finish" on the next screen and the computer will reboot. Hope this helps.

It takes about five minutes for the internet to connect after I turn on the computer. After that, it is fine


This is the normal time taken for the computer to boot and the modem to access the internet

First boot the modem then the computer

By the time the computer boots the modem will be ready to connect

If this doesnt work clear the Cookies and Cache from the computer
