Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.

When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.

When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r , and then press ENTER. (Space btwn k and /r)

At the command prompt, type exit , and then press ENTER to restart your computer.

The system should boot back into Windows.

If that doesn't work follow the above steps again but after you type the Administrator password ...

At the command prompt, type fixmbr and continue the next two steps.

THIS SOLUTION IS ONLY FOR A DAMAGED FILE SYSTEM.

My computer is low - Microsoft Windows


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.

My VAIO Computer Freezes When Turned On


A few internal diagnostic tools get run before the OS loads and im thinking that perhaps the Master boot record (the place the computer looks for the OS to load) is damaged, so yes a reinstall may possibly fix that, but perhaps the HDD is getting on (you did mention age) and the platters and the read write head within the hard drive are probably near then end of their life so.
  • Reinstall the Operating System and see if that takes away the issue or
  • If the problems still occurs i recommend buying a brand new hard drive.
Im positive one of these is the reason for the freezing and long boot.

Hi. When I turn on my Acer aspire t180, only the red button light up, but the green button does not light up . And then nothing happens. Please help me as im having the same problem for months already.


Im guessing the PC starts up flashes the lights turns off and repeats?

If so the hard drive boot sector is gone or damaged. Try to boot from the Windows disk.

Hi i have compaq presario c700 its too slow discr


If you have changed OS, your problem probably is not due to malware or bloat.
Upgraded to 2gb ram, new hard drive. And still you think it is too slow.
I think either you are too fussy, and expect too much OR your laptop has major problems at a chipset level.
Have you tried running some benchmark software to check if it really is running slow???

I would Do a fresh install of windows, SELL it and change to a different model.
Try checking a couple of reviews on sites like Custom PC, for a good fast laptop.

I upgraded the memory from 1Gb to 2 Gb but my laptop's still slow


it can't be, check if the windows is reading 2gb from system under control panel.

to find out if your pc is fast, see if it plays a game faster than before or use a program faster than before
there is no diffrence in using windows itself. example i think in your mind you'd expect to click on my documents and it loads it super fast now with 2gb of ram? no, you're wrong weather you have 1gig or 2gig windows still works the same
the diffrence is Faster file transfer, faster applictions but not a faster windows.

it could also be the norton if you installed, it lowers your speed.

check Task manager, in the performance section
cpu usage should be under 10%
and pf under 500mb
