Question about Toshiba A505S6005 Core i3330M DualCore 213GHz 4GB 500GB DVD RW DL 16'' Win7 Home Premium wWebca (PSAT6U005002B) PC Notebook

1 Answer

Crashes several times a day.

BIOS and all drivers are up-to-date, cleaned registry and other unused files, do regular virus scans with Norton. Ran a memory test for a couple hours and no problems found. I keep hard drive defragged. Crashes usually occur when running video tutorials and YouTube. Seems okay with graphics programs (CAD) most of the time. This has been a problem since unit was new, but is increasing in frequency now. I have spent hours trying to troubleshoot the problem to no avail. It recently went nearly a month with no crashes, but started again about two weeks ago. Very frustrating.

I had a similar problem with a Compaq laptop. Turned out to be the battery. To see if it is, take the battery out and run it from the mains for a while. If the problem occurs then its not the battery (not much help I know but it illiminates one possible source).

    Thanks, Andrew. I removed the battery after I read your suggestion. Have had two unexpected crashes since doing so, one occurred when I attempted opening Google Earth, the other with a YouTube video.

SOURCE: Slow Laptop Performance

You need to follow some simple steps to boost up your speed. Before using the 3rd party utilities I suggest you to start with windows own utilities. Perform disk clean up,

Start> All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Clean up

Reduce the quantity of startup programs simple type MSCONFIG after open the Run option and enter. uncheck the non essential applications (You can consider non essential software aside hotkey utility and antivirus). After click on apply and OK restart prompt will appear. "Dont Restart"

Go to My Computer, Right click on C drive and choose "Properties" click the Tools tab and click on the check now button in Disk error checking area. Check both of the boxes when it prompt. And click on OK. It will inform you that system unable to check as its in use therefore it will start when you restart computer. It will perform 5 steps error checking. It might take up to 1 hour.

Once computer start it will be definitely faster. however you have still many ways to choose better performance over some value added features. Like you can choose best performance instead of best appearance. Also you can disable System Restore feature this will increase performance and speed while feature will be not available.

Please post more if further assistance needed

Good Luck.

What makes my laptop slow after booting


FIXING A SLOW COMPUTER
A slow computer could be caused by a number of things - 1. Insufficient RAM (memory) - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to at least 1Gb of RAM. 2. Registry problems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys. Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc. 3. Uninstall/remove unused programs, this will also free up hard disk space. 4. Not enough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn't been configured to manage it. 5. Install latest Windows updates. 6. Update virus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc. 7. Clear the Internet cache for faster browsing. 8. Hard disk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioning efficiently. Run the following programs - Disk Cleanup - removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard disk space. Disk Defragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and therefore the hard disk access is faster.

How toidentify whether your computer system is infected with a virus attack?
Signof Virus infection
You can easily identify when yourcomputer system gets infected from viruses. Some of the signs of virusinfections are enlisted herewith:
Computerbecomes very slow in performance.
Suddensystem crashes and computer reboots repeatedly.
Applicationsoftware crashes and random messages are displayed on the monitor.
If you find any of the above mentionedsign on your computer system, then there arises the probability of yourcomputer being infected with viruses. The next step after detecting thepresence of virus on your PC is to remove them from your system in order tosave your important data. If your computer is not infected with any type ofmalicious software then it is strongly recommended to install any bestantivirus software to keep it safe against the attacks.
You can use antivirus software for removingviruses from your computer system. Antivirus software programs are intended forpreventing, detecting and removing virus programs. You can choose from some ofthe best antivirus software like Norton, Avast, AVG and others, provided it hasthe feature of regular update. In case your antivirus software is notup-to-date, then it will not be able to protect your computer system from themost recent viruses and other infections.
System Restore is an element of Windowsoperating system which enables you to roll back system files, registry keys,and installed programs to a previous stable state. Operating system of yourcomputer system creates restore point after installation of any software, orafter 24 hours.
If there is a virus is available on yoursystem at the time of creating the restore point, ittwill also become a part ofit. Antivirus software is incapable to remove any virus program from systemrestore. in such case, you have to disable System Restore and then scan withlatest antivirus software. After that, when your system gets disinfected fromviruses, then re-enable System Restore.
So, you have to install updated antivirussoftware on your computer system, if you want to keep it safe from anymalicious program like viruses.

Computer is full of virus


Remove all the junk files/software/unused items from system memory/Control Panel. When this is done, clean all associated registry/cache codes with the help of Ccleaner software. Now restore your system to the date when it worked fine and then perform a complete system scan with the help of some good antivirus software such as Norton, Immunet Plus, Kaspersky, Bitdefender, Avast, Avira, Panda, Comodo etc. Virus threads will be detected and quarantined.

My computer is moving slower so , I cleaned out the temp. internet files ( cookies). When I looked at the number of files in the temp. internet it was 40000 and rising. How can I get rid of these files...


you can download ccleaner HERE. Make sure to get the free download. It sound like you may have a virus or spyware so be sure to do a complete boot time scan first. Run ccleaner and it will clear out all the temporary files. You can also run the registry tool to clear out any unused or broken .dll files. Make sure you backup your registry when it prompts you to, it is best to include the date in the file name when saving the registry backup.
You are also going to want to check if your hard disk needs to be defragmented. Go to my computer---->right click your hard disk---->system tools----> disk defragmenter.
Slow speeds are usually a result of either broken windows files, a severly fragmented hard disk, or viruses and spyware.
If the temprary files are increasing all by themselves, it is likely a virus that is copying itself over and over, probably spreading itself through your email client. It is very important you do a boot time scan, that way the virus is not running when the scan is performed. If you run the scan after windows boots, the virus will be copying itself and will not be removed.
If you do not have an up to date paid virus/spyware suite, you can download AVG Free at www.avast.com. It has very good reviews and is on par if not better than many of the paid software suites.

It restarts automatically and reboots continue.........


You probably have a boot sector virus and/or a corrupted bios. you should stop trying to boot normally, as you could damage your hard drive.

Try booting into safe mode. If you succeed, download malware bytes and scan to try and clear the virus. If this will not work you need either bootable operating system CD or DVD or bootable boot repair utility (Norton Bootable Recovery Tool).

If you have vital data on the laptop, you can remove the hard drive and use a hard drive dock or external hard drive caddy to back the important data up onto an external hard drive, but for that you need another computer (or a long session in an internet cafe).

For the future, if you want value for money, avast! fee edition version 6 is a perfectly adequate antivirus as long as you have some additional anti spyware installed (malware bytes/superantispyware/spyware terminator/spywaredoctor are all good). If you're willing to pay, get Kaspersky Anti Virus, use a different browser (google chrome, firefox, opera, safari, etc.), do regular scans, disk clean ups, registry editing and hdd defragmentations, create regular restore points to resolve minor system corruptions or crashes and use your anti virus to create regular custom made Recovery Disks on an over writable cd-rw or dvd-rw when your pc is running well, for major system corruptions or crashes or failures.

Back up important data to 2 separate external hard drives (one regularly connected, one connected only occasionally and kept separately as an archive - an insurance policy). be sensible when browsing new, unfamiliar websites. Be particularly vigilant on danger sites such as file sharing, social networking. develop the habit of keeping your mouse cursor near the blue return arrow, top left to quickly leave a web page showing initial signs of infection. do not be seduced by unsolicited free security scans and downloads while browsing.

If you see signs of infection starting and leaving the infecting page doesn't stop it develop the habit of a quick sequence of closing all windows and dialogue boxes with the red button x top right, then, if necessary, killing your router with the power switch, then ctrl+alt+del>task manager>end process, then set anti virus to do a boot scan, then restart the pc.

An anti virus is like a motorcycle crash helmet. It is not a guarantee that you will not suffer serious damage, your real safety relies on foresight, preparedness, vigilance, care, precaution, common sense and calm, swift, considered, practiced reactions in the face of danger that you employ while riding the bike. The helmet is just an extra element of protection and reassurance. An anti virus is the same while using a pc.

Finally, if your pc has vital data on it for work or other important functions, then use the main pc for important things and, if you can afford it invest £170 in a net book for fun, frivolous, non-essential browsing and downloading.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

This can be resolved by installing and scanning the computer using Norton 360.

Click here to download Norton 360 version 3.0

After downloading Norton 360 double click on the installation file and follow on screen instruction to install the file.
Click on skip if it ask for product key.
After installing Norton 360 open Norton 360 and click on live Update to download latest virus definition on to your computer. This will helps norton to find and heal the up to date virus.

After running live update perform complete system scan using Norton.

Note:
  • Uninstall existing Antivirus on your computer before installing Norton 360.
  • Your system performance will be little low for about 7 to 10 days after installing Norton, after this period it will become Normal.
  • This is trial version which will provide you 30 days validity but even 1 year subscription does the same task. You can install whatever antivirus if you wish to switch over.

Computer speed


There are several ways to boost a Computer and there are also several reasons why the Computer is slow, like virus, ram, temporary files, cookies, cache files, cpu overheating, motherboard dust-clogged, power supply, etc..etc..

[in most cases antivirus like Norton slows down the system which makes the system unstable. Also note that there's no multiple antivirus softwares installed on your system, if so uninstall both or all and reinstall which you think is most effective]

Well, first try with this utility....(click here to download)
Install it, run both the "Cleaner" and "Registry" cleaner. Restart your computer and check if it helps or not.
If this doesn't help, you need to check the whole system, I would suggest you to clean everything inside the box including the ram and the cpu with the heat-sink as well. Blow away all the dust on the motherboard and on the power supply unit. (you'll need to disassemble your system to do this).

It's also important to install an updated antivirus and run a full system virus scan.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I own a acer ferrari 3400


The freezing, if you say there are no registry problems, could be a spyware or trojan running in the back ground. although you say you have norton it doesnt pick everything up, and some trojans cannot be removed when the pc is running normally so the best thing to do is start the notebook in safe mode (F8) on boot up and select start windows in safe mode) and run both the below programmes. They are both free and free updating, the registry cleaner programme to download first clears any unused or irrelevant registry files, the second is an anti spyware removal programme to check for things norton has missed. http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ http://www.download.com/3000-2144-10045910.html Another problem could be corrupt or conflicting drivers so ensure all you drivers are upto date on the Acer website.
