The first thing I'd try to do is see what programs are running at startup. To do this Click on Start--> Run -->type "msconfig" without the quotes.

Click on the Startup Tab and view all the programs that are running at startup. As for deselecting which programs run at startup you can directly ask me which ones you can disable. For the most part all instant messengers and most program files can be disabled.

DO NOT disable any Windows/system32 files!

Every thing i click on on my desktop starts then


I played around with W8 on an Asus notebook with a 1GHz CPU and found that each programme will open over the top of another.You could have many trying to run and causing the CPU to overload and freeze.
Waiting for the activity to slow from startup by observing the LED activity of the hard drive usually means all startup programmes have loaded and there is less draw on the CPU resources.Trying to access other software while startup is incomplete will compound sluggishness especially if the laptop is a netbook or has a low speed CPU.
If you experience the issue again please wait a few minutes before trying to access or cancel any programme to see if will work through any bottleneck created.

Why will my fan not run during use but i hear it when the computer powers up?


Fans, mainly the CPU fan, have a speed control which slows the fan down. This is usually controlled by the BIOS. The speed is based on temperature of the CPU. If it's cool with little load the CPU fan will run very slowly and you won't be able to hear it. On startup all fans ramp up to 100% until the BIOS takes over and slows the fan down.

My pc speed is too slow. sometime it hag very much .please i request you to give mesome solution


Slow Windows Machine! Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant


It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

Slow to open


Hi,
Is this slow when start up the computer or slow when you open an application?
If slow when start up the computer, the reason is your computer has too much start up programs and services. All these software, services is required to open as start up of the computer, that reduce speed of log on/ start up process. You can speed up by try these steps:
1. Start - Run: type: msconfig and hit enter.
2. The System Configuration Window will appear. Click on Selective Startup. Then go to Start up tab, untick the process that you think it not importance for start up such as Acrobat Reader...ect. 3. Then hit apply and restart your computer. You can disable all of start up services.
If slow when you try to open an application, then the reason is your computer busy work with some other higher piority process. If you think that you need this application open quicker, you can go to Task Manger and End the task you don't want it run or the task that took a lot of CPU resources.

Hope this will hellp
Thanks for reading.

U tube videos play slow and sound plays first then visual starts jerkly to play. I have added the max extra ram


That may be your network connection or your cpu load. I'm going to say your cpu.

On a older laptop like that the cpu can run out of power when playing video's. The extra ram should have made some improvement for other things and helped a bit with the video.

First we want to do ctrl-alt delete to bring up your task manager. Look at the CPU usage number. With nothing else running it should be 0-1% maybe as high as 2% then drop to zero. Anything higher than that and you have too much running. If you click on the top of the colom where it says CPU it will sort by cpu use. You may have to scroll up or down to get to the big numbers, most should show zero. The big number should be system idle at say 95%+ followed the task manger taking up most of the rest. Usually what happens on older machines is they don;t have the extra horsepower to cope with all the new programs demands so they bog down. So what you can do to help this is to stop anything that you don't need from running. These are things like speed loaders or auto updates. For example if you run office or use adobe products you don;t need to have it load a speed loader (which doesn;t really seem to speed up anything) everytime. If you look at what is in the start-all programs-startup these are things that are loaded at startup. Removing things from here will stop them from auto starting. If you don;t know what these things are chances are you never use them. If you drag them out of the startup to the previous menu you can still manually start them.

Next make sure you don;t have any messengers running. Most seem to set themselves up to load with windows. Some like MSN are bad for loading the cpu. So under the options for those uncheck load at windows startup.

And last you may be running a antivirus program. These are also pretty hard on the cpu. Usually there is an icon near the clock. If you right click on it there is usually a menu selection that will turn off (or back on) the antivirus program . It should restart when you reboot.

You may also want to see if there are any other programs or managers such as print mamagers or other programs that want to load at boot. Either disable these from auto starting or exit from them before trying to watch.

Those are the easy things to try to speed things up. I have a old compaq I use for watching videos from time to time that is about the same as yours. These are the tricks I use to watch youtube vids. When I don;t turn them off etc I had the same symptoms.

Think pad T30 - very slow to shut down


Your computer needs a clean.
Be sure that your computer is not virus or spyware infected.

Check if the fan is working, another cause could be related to a hardware issue.

Desktop CPU Fan Problem


My first check would be to see if the manufactuer has a BIOS update for the ma inboard that resolves that problem.

If they don't have one available on their website I would contact their technical support because it may be a known issue that they are currently working to correct.

At least knowing you'll know that a fix is only a few months away.

If the manufacturer claims that your problem can't be verified you may have a faulty thermal control unit on the mainboard.


Let me know what you find out.
