Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

A very laggy computer.

My windows vista is lagging VERY VERY MUCH. Whenever I turn on my computer, I get to the part where they was , Welcome , and stuff. But after that, it takes about 15 minutes for the start bar and all the icons to show up. I already tried system restore, but that didn't help either.

Lag in Chefville

OMG all of you are WRONG, it is ZYNGA. NOT the dudes system (eyeroll) YES ZYNGA lags on CHEFVILLE whenever you request anything. NOT posting but, requesting. I bought my computer brand new, a samsung, from the box Windows 8 and 64 bit, and it STILL lags when sending requests through CHEFVILLE, from the minute I ran the game and it does it through the library computers, and my friends laptops. So really your "helpful advice" is a bunch of hogwash!

When ever I play video and sound files, or run computer games, even computer booting up, the audio is laggy and choppy with lots of static, and video playback is accompanying it by being choppy and laggy. ...

I would reinstall the sound driver by going to the control panel choose system then when the device manager tab comes up choose hardware.Find the sound devices then right click on it to remove it.Windows will autimatically re-install the device.

Sounds on my PC are Choppy/Laggy

there is another FREE program you can try.. try an internet search for AD-AWARE It finds those pesky little memory thieves and oftentimes can eliminate them. I am unfamiliar with your antivirus program.. I would use McAfee or Norton. As for the lagging it sounds like a buffering problem. there is a program I use called System Mechanic that does a pretty decent job of fixing internet and even registry problems. The System mechanic by IOLO ( i think) is a little spendy unless you get in on an offering I got 1 yr service for only 20.00 (vs 40-80 to buy the prog from the store) The musid that is choppy is it while online with a program such as mIRC? if so try #mirc_rainbow maybe the OPS there can help you, just be polite to them and thank them and you will be a welcome visitor anytime you drop by.. Another nice IRC site is #popinn or even #mirc_help (yes the # is neccesary)
Good Luck

You could boot to your Windows CD and select "R" for repair installation when that option screen appears after files are loaded.
Please let us know if you need instruction on booting to the Windows CD or anything else?
Good luck.

Vista inspirat

i believe because you don;t have enough memory

i have used vista inspirat before

i got rid of it because it was making my computer lag a lot too.

just get rid of it and don't "switch to your windows xp style".

then you can keep the vista taskbar w00t

thats all i wanted in the first place so now i have what i want and no lag

try that
i also added more memory to my computer AFTER i lost the lag

so don't think you have to put more memory in your computer

Inspiron B130 laggy video and sound.

I'd recommend the latest video drivers- and strangely enough- defragging the hard drive. Most laggy systems I've seen with plenty of ram (512 or more) that have no spyware on them, and no major ram eaters (norton, spysweeper, mcafee) are fragmented. look in task manager (ctl, alt del) and see how much free ram you have- and see what is using all of it. If you have a lot of ram, and no process is chewing up the ram, or the cpu- then defrag the hard drive.
