What would cause a fax machine to get progressively slower to react to commands?


You are probably right about something chewing up memory. I would check to see if there are any system updates that can be applied as these usually fix these types of errors.

Compressor turns slow when motor is running


If the AC is functioning normally, and there is no belt squealing, there is nothing wrong. All accessories run at different speeds depending on the pulley size. The AC will run a lot slower than the Alternator since it has to run slower in order to function properly.

Microsoft ISATAP Adapter This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device.


ISATAP is Microsoft trying to allow IPv6 to function over an IPv4 infrastructure, however, it was released extremely prematurely, and as a result, doesn't like to work, or install. According to Microsoft, your computer should continue to function without ISATAP functioning,and the error message may be ignored. However, if you believe that this may be causing you some problems, then you may navigate to the device manager ( Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager ) from this window, see if you can find ISATAP adapter and 4TO6 adapter, right-click these, and select "Disable" NOTE: this may cause Internet Explorer and Windows Mail to run slower and have a few errors.

I hope this helps!

Cpu heat


Overheating is a common problem with laptops, and usually a bit of preventative maintenance is all it takes to keep it alive. The bearings on those fans are pretty durable, however dust (and especially pet hair) can build up and slow it down. The motor may still be good, its just that the fan blades are stuck.

Blow some air in the vent OPPOSITE the direction of normal air flow (In most cases it sucks from the bottom and blows out the back/side) and if you see dust bunnies, your doing good. Be THROUGH! Especially if you smoke in your house, this causes the dust to become brown and sticky. = )
Good Luck!

Images blurred on toshiba satellite laptop


Many times this is caused by a dial-up accelerator program. These function by reducing the quality of the picture, resulting in smaller files and thus faster internet because there is less data to transfer. But the resulting pictures are often very poor quality.

If there is an accelerator, there will be a way to reduce the degree of compression or to disable it completely. You will have slower internet but better pictures.
