My N100 notebook is very slow in process


if it is a windows computer, try running defragmenter and disk cleanup.
to run defragmenter, in the search box in the start menu (in vista and windows 7) and search "defragmenter" select the c drive, and defragment it.. while you're at it, set up a weekly defragment with the defragmenter schedule.
To run disk cleanup, search for "disk cleanup" in the same search box. select the c drive, and check all the things you want to clean up.
you can always just do a scan with your antivirus to check if theres a virus slowing your system down.

How to speed up your computer using a disk defragmenter


Computers slow down after a while. Most of the time they can be revived by following some simple maintenance procedures.

One of the biggest culprits to a slow computer is a fragmented file system. As files are written and overwritten constantly, parts of files get written to different parts of your hard drive. In order for the computer to read these file, it has to jump all over the hard drive which slows your computer down. In order to fix this, it is recommended that you maintain at least a minimum of 10% free space on your hard drives. Then at least once per month, run a disk defragmenting program such as the built-in one that comes with Windows, or a 3rd party program such as Jeroen Kessel's MyDefrag.

Download the latest version from the Downloads page (currently v4.3.1), run the install program and leave the default components checked, but make sure to check the box for the Screensaver program under Additional Tasks if you want your computer to defragment your harddrive while your computer is on and idle (when you are not using it). This is my favorite option and saves you from running a full defragment every month. If you select this option, the screen saver selection dialog opens up and you need to select the Defrag screensaver and click OK.

If you do not use the screensaver option, Run MyDefrag from your Start/Programs menu. Select the option for System Disk Monthly then click drive C and click Run. You can continue to do other tasks while it is running.

Slow pc and no sound icon


I believe you had too many files on your computer. I advise to run deframenting your computer every week to speed up your computer and also run scan disk for error to fix some problems. Just go to program files>accessories>system tools>disk defragment. If still slow I advise to reinstall your operating system or ever upgrading it to windows 7 or vista.

Need to clean every thing thats making computer run slow


If your hard drive is too full, then your computer is going to perform slower. Delete old files which are not required.
Remove programs that you are no longer using. Delete temporary files.
Empty your recycle bin. Right click on Recycle Bin. Click Empty Recycle Bin>Yes.
Run an error check on your computer. The error check can remove errors that slow down your computer. If you are using Windows, you can do this by clicking Start>My Computer. Right click on your hard drive (typically c:) and then select Properties. Click the Tools tab>Check Now and then Start.
Defragment your computer. A fragmented computer runs less efficiently. By defragmenting your computer, your computer will operate in a more logical and faster way.
Clean up your registry. You can purchase software that will fix any registry errors on your computer.
Perform this computer maintenance on a weekly basis.

My computer is filling up


defrag you HDD, that is one of the best simple solutions you may be able to do.

open my computer

right click on your local drive (C:)

then click properties

click tools then select disk defragment

then click on defrag now


on vista all you have to do is click on defrag now, on XP you will have to see the status first, then defrag.

on XP if the colors you see are separated, you really have to defrag, this will take at least an hour, depending on the status of your HDD.

Slow


Good morning. Quite a number of things can cause your computer to run slow. Usually, it's due to the data on your disk being too fragmented or due to a virus or spyware problem. Also, if you have your hard drive too full (80%) or more, it can really slow things down. Do a disk cleanup, then a defrag and see if that helps. If not, go out on the net and download some of the free antivirus programs and run them. They seem to run as good, or better, than most of the paid packages that I've seen. AVG is good as is SpyBot and AdAware. I run all three on a regular basis and have few virus/spyware problems. If those things don't take care of the problem, get back to us for some more ideas.
Best of luck and Have a good day!
