You may have too much stuff running in the background using up ram and processor cycles. Press ALT CTL and DEL at the same time and open task manager. It will let you know how many processes are running in the background and how much your 5200+ is being used and how much ram too.The names of the processes can be quite cryptic so don't just start taking them out.Download the program Process Explorer and run that. It will bring up the same list. The difference will be that you will have the option to google the process and see what it does. You can then decide if you can get rid of it without effecting your computer.Next go to Start/Run and type in msconfig. This is where you can get rid of those start up programs. Deselect all but the ones that are related to your anti virus program. Reboot and check the task manager to see if it helped

If the computer has always been slow, then yes additional RAM will help. If you are running XP, 1 Gb or ram runs great, 2 Gb runs a touch better. If you are running Vista, I highly recommend moving to 2 Gb.

If the computer is generally getting slower and slower, then it just needs a tune-up/clean-up. I am assuming you are not computer savvy, so I would suggest calling a local computer shop. Ask them for a general cleanup service on your computer. Do not pay more than $100.

The battery is fully charged, and the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, when i push the on button the laptop will not start


Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

How to enable bluetooth


Your computer has to have a bluetooth radio. You can check
Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager
Do you see a Bluetooth Radio listed?

If not, you don't have BlueTooth on your computer so you will have to add a BlueTooth device by plugging one into a USB port.

If you have a BlueTooth radio, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device and Printers > Add a Bluetooth Device

This option is used to connect a blue tooth device (e.g. bluetooth headphons) to your laptop through your bluetooth radio.

See this Windows web page for more information.
Set up Bluetooth enabled device

I will respond to any additional questions you have.

How to fix computer problems for free


First make certain you have a virus program running and do a full scan. There are free ones around, most use AVG. You can get pop-up blockers, or look at internet options and select block pop ups.

Visit the following website called Black Viper. Follow the instructions and that should speed up your computer.

Bluetooth & sound


Generally, connecting phones via bluetooth to a laptop just allows for file transfer between the two devices. It is not to input sound from the phone through the speakers of the laptop. You would need a bluetooth audio device for that such as bluetooth speakers or headphones
