Fan slow down and them high speed

change the fan ASAP, since the zooming noise and the slow performance will affect even the processor and you might end up replacing the processor as well if it persists. So get the fan ASAP and problem will be solved.

Can i update the video card for hp a610n


The HP Pavilion A610N was not designed for Win 7 Ultimate as it was only shipped with 512MB of RAM (memory) The Video card is integrated and only supports 64MB, you will have to purchase a AGP 8X video card to install.
Unless you have maxed your memory to 1GB then it could run Win 7 fairly well, If not i would go back to XP.

My computers cooling fan keeps speeding up and slowing down is that a good thing or a bad thing

I'm assuming your desktop has an AMD processor?
AMD have a process called "quiet and cool" this basically speeds up the fan when the processor is under load and getting hot or slows it down when the processor isn't working as hard.

Comtrend Are Junk?

What do you mean your computer is freezing? If it's the operating system that is freezing then it's highly doubtful that it's the new router which is at fault. If the computer is slow and unresponsive then clear your internet cache, perform a defrag and also check the drive for any errors.

To clear the internet cache right click on internet explorer and select properties from the list. In the general tab where it says browsing history click on delete and follow the on-screen messages.

To perform a defrag click on the start menu then all programs, accessories, system tools and the disk defragmenter.

To check the disk for any errors click on computer, right click on local disk c and select properties, select the tools tab and check the volume for errors. Make sure you check both boxes to fix any errors found and then be patient as it cane take some time to complete.

If the problem is the internet which is freezing then perform a speed test on your internet connection and compare the speed to what your supposed to be getting. You can perform a speed test here >>>>>>

If the speed isn't what it's supposed to be then of course get your own router.
I do recommend Netgear myself as i will only have them routers for my own personal use.

I'm using windows 98 SE. Two weeks ago my computer started to slow down when I open folders looking for files. But when i'm using a software or navigation on the web it works normally. I tried to make a...

Hello mboisvert,
There are many excellent suggestions to help solve your problem of 'slow opening' folders in W98 & improve the efficiency of the system, but one underlying factor that always should be adhered to - otherwise it can cause the slow opening of all folders throughout the entire Hard Drive - is that within the My Documents folder it's necessary to keep the approx TOTAL number of Folders & Subfolders within it to under 100 even to keep it under 75. The MD's folder has a unique operating structure and in some cases exhibits a flaw where if you place too many folders in it, the effects of that can cause the slow opening of all folders on that drive - and the more folders you open in a session - the slower it will get!

The fix is simple and effective: if you're noticing a slowdown when opening folders anywhere on your drive while you have more than 100 folders in MD's, then simply create another folder on your Desktop, or anywhere, and name it whatever you'd like, then Cut all excess folders out of the MD's folder and then Paste them into your new folder, and reboot.'ll see all your folders open normally now if you had the above anomaly.
