Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook

2 Answers

Slow running Satellite A135-2276 even after installing 2 GB memor

I did a thorough scan of the harddrive for viruses,spyware,etc, also did a thorough scan using System Mechanics, defragmented the HD, also installed 2 GB of Kingston Memory. The system recognized the memory upgrade but still runs extremely slow. I've spent HOURS working on this and have exhausted everything I could think of to remedy this problem. It has a 1.60 Ghz Intel Pentium Duo-Core Processor. I have the same processor on my desktop with only 1 GB of memory and it works perfectly fine. What could be the problem?

    TO: Smithbrother, This computer is my SIL and she never updated the computer. I installed all the Vista updates so there is no system restore to an eariler date. She also had numerous viruses which I was able to get rid of using a anit-virus program. She didn't give me the reinstall CD but I can get it from her. She has an 80 GB HD and has 46.4 % free space there are no services running after the computer boots up. It boots up somewhat quick but when you want to start a program it takes forever for it to start.

    Try system restore to an early date, or Reinstall for the CD to see if it is software or hardware. How much of the hard drive is in use? What services are running?

Hi, My laptop taking so much time to switch on and it became very slow. Please tell me the soluiton for it.


Sometimes slow booting of computers and Laptops are caused by viruses and spywares. Also, a High temperatured Processor makes a computer slow.
Here are some solutions you might want to try.
  1. If you have a installed antivirus in your computer, i suggest you update your Antivirus and then Start scanning your computer for possible viruses and spywares.
  2. If viruses and Spywares are not the problem, maybe your Processor is feeling to much heat. I suggest you use Laptop Coolers like this one. heifentrixx_11.jpg
  3. This will help you cool down you Processor and Laptop.
Hope my solution will help. Thanks for using Fixya!

I have toshiba laptop satellite l650-15g core i5 is working to slow like Pentium 2 every think is opening to late please help me fast


use these steps:
1- reinstall your operating system (OS).
2- after the OS installed , download and install a powerful anti virus(with latest updates) (like NOD32 ANTI Virus or Kaspersky etc)

3- start a full scan (in anti virus options).
4- reinstall your OS again and enjoy fast speed.
NOTE:always remember to use an updated anti virus on your Laptop.
and if your laptop worked slow again use this way:
1- start "RUN" from start menu.(if you are using windows 7 go to accessories)
2- enter "msconfig".
3- go to startup tab.
4- disable some installed software (like yahoo messenger or ID Manager etc) in start up but be careful not to disable windows applications.

The computer is painfully slow


Malware dialers and virus' can cause this. Run a virus scan then get Spybot search and destroy here:

After that do a defrag of harddrive.

My computer run slow


try to click on start->run->type"msconfig"->then in starup then disable all programs you want but dont disable critical sys programs. This will make sure that all these programs will not star with windows. It will free up memory. You can also try to reinstal System or buy more memory.

My PC is extremely slow. I have the defrag set on a schedule and I have done a virus scan using Kaspersky Anti-Virus recently.


First, backup all your data to an external medium.

Then, if you have no hardware problems, do this:

(1) Run a FULL anti-virus scan with a good virus scanner. Get free editions of Avast or Antivir. Use the latest virus definitions file. But don't install or run more than one anti-virus at the same time.
http://www.avast.com
http://www.avira.com

(2) Run anti-spyware scans with Super Anti-spyware and malwarebytes free editions.
http://malwarebytes.org/
http://www.superantispyware.com/

(3) Ensure all Microsoft security updates are applied.

(4) Run disk cleanup to delete old temp files and other junk. Right click the drive in My Computer, choose Properties and Disk cleanup. Delete the temp files, temporary internet files, empty the recycle bin etc. Don't compress the drive contents.

(5a) Run chkdsk once to scan for file system errors. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315265

(5b) Run a thorough disk defrag. Use a good defragmenter for this, and also run a boot-time defrag to fix the MFT and page file if they are fragmented. Use Diskeeper 2010, which is the best defragger around. Their website has free 30-day trial versions. http://www.diskeeper.com

(6) Disable unnecessary background processes and services that take up memory. You can use MSCONFIG and SERVICES for this, but if you're unsure of what the processes/services do, don't change any settings.

Why is my computer so slow to load anything ,its even slowing my internet speed, i i open limewire and try to do anything online it doesn't even wanna move.


Hello

Have your computer always been slow or is it a recent problem?

If it has always been slow, you need to install more ram. Just take your computer to your nearest computer hardware store and they should inform you on what ram you need to buy. They will do it for free.

If this slow pc is a recent problem, you might want to defrag the computer. But this could just as easy be a duplication virus, so it might also help if you update your virus protector and do a full system scan.

My best advice is however to format the computer and install a clean copy of windows.

Hope you can find this helpful.

Kind regards
Andrea

Runs very slow,has been repaired twice for viruses


Have you tried a Disk Cleanup? This can often cause computers to run slowly. Look under Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools.
