My presario v5000 is running very slowly and freezes at times

Starting 3 month ago, my laptop has been running very slowly and will freeze also at times. It will take a long time to get it to start working again. I can be on or off line.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

There could be alot of reasons for this happening could even be some kind of virus but I am going to show you the easiest way to check what could be wrong hopefully you are running xp or vista should not be to different,if you goto task manager (right click on your taskbar the bottom one next to the start button) this will tell you what programs are running on your computer.When it starts running slow do a check and find out what is running,it could be a antivirus checker or something like that.If you cant see anything running then click on the performance tab on task manager to see how much cpu power is been used,hopefully something will jump out at you and you will be able to fix this very annoying issue.

Compaq Presario CQ56 freezes when online


If your pc is "freezing" or stopping the majority of the time there's too much running for the ram to handle. Have you tried cleaning the hard drive? A good one is to go to www.piriform.com and download the ccleaner. It's a free program and has some awesome results.

Compaq Presario v5000 freezes on startup


If you aren't worried about what you have on the hard drive or if you have been diligent and backed everything up i would say the easiest fix is to re-format and re-install your operating system from scratch.This would re-set everything to default and in turn re-set the bios .
If your not up for that and you can get into the bios by either a F1,F2 or delete while starting up , then you could just try re-setting everything back to factory settings or default ....which ever option it gives you .... If this doesn't , any of the afore mentioned help, then my next thought would be the cpu or motherboard has the issues. good luck

A few months ago was the peak of Windows Virus Season, so it's likely you picked up one or more. I have seen viruses this season that denied your browsers to access the interned though some of the computer's resources still had access.

Run a full virus scan in safe mode with your up to date Anti-Virus program. If you don't have Anti-Virus and a running Fire Wall, I suggest you do after you format and do a clean install of Windows.

Good luck.

COMPAQ PRESARIO V5000 POWERS OFF RANDOMLY


I do not believe this is OS related.

Dust bunnies under your bed? The CPU might be overheating. Check for dust and lint blockage in the cooling fins at the lower left rear. Vacuum the stuff out.

I have repaired 3 V5000s overheating because of dirt.

When you are trying to solve problems, remove the battery and run on AC. The battery is just another variable to complicate the issue.

Laptop freezes


"I never shut it off " Hope u r hibernating the laptop.. It seems that ur lap is junked with a lot of registery files and starup files.. so it takes a lot of memory to perform its operations and subsequently it hangs up.. and i hope u have installed norton anti viurs. this antivirus needs a lot of resources. better u install Mcafee. The best thing u can do is to install a fresh copy of windows. this will solve ur problem.. and remember keep the startup items to the min level.

Compaq Presario V2000 keeps freezing up


It could be something as simple as a corrupt graphics driver. If you have currently run a Windows update for hardware, there is a chance that a generic Windows driver has been installed and is not working correctly. Go to your task bar, as there is normally a graphics programme running enabling you to set the external monitor etc. If it's there and you have lost all the usual tabs for changing different properties, then the driver will need to be downloaded from your notebook manufacturer. If all in that looks ok then click Start>Run then type 'dxdiag' and hit enter and let windows do a diagnostic test on sound and video. If it's an intermitent problem, this is normally down to overheating, so check the vents around your fan and gently give them a hoover out. Failing all; keep an eye on your processor temperature, you can download allsorts of different free programmes that will run in your taskbar.
