Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a dell with windows vista. The computer began running very slow about 7 months ago. I hadn't don't anything with it and just used my phone internet. So today I did a system restore which did not help. Sp after backing up what I wanted I did a factory restore. Now the computer is good when I'm not on the internet but the internet is still slower than before. I have a verizon usb card for my internet service and it is showing that I have good service when I log on. Is there something else wrong that I can do to fix the problem. The computer is only 3 yrs old

SOURCE: Lenovo G550 running Windows 7 won't connect to

Hello
Wow youve done almost everything here.How about the firewall? is it blocking any connections?

Next,Go to control panel,network and sharing center.Look and see if the pc or laptop in question is on the same network,meaning home or public.

Set all your machines to the same network.Either home or public.I do know this has been a win 7 problem.

No the hidden partions rely on the main partion to have some files still intact to complete a repair of the operating sytem then restores the files back to thair factory settings, to put xp back on you will need the factory recovery cd or dvd. If you buy a copy of xp and install it then ust eht recovery it should restore it to factory with drivers as well.

Safe startup programs to disable?


Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
To disable 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.

Message: Virtual Memory is too low. The pc is too slow to work.


You may need more RAM. Right click My Computer > General.

Or, open Control Panel > System. RAM will be noted. You can run / see Windows Experience in Win 7. Your score is based on lowest score. Check RAM score.


Win 7 works best with at least 2GB of RAM

Another trick is to disable startup programs from loading in the first place. 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.

Dell 1420 the twoon touch pad don't respond and the usb ports don't respond so i cannot connect a mouse neither can use the touch pad buttons I am dead on the water help!


LOL, didn't you know windows 7 was just a tad bit better than vista? Why do you think microsoft will be coming out with windows 8 in the coming months by the fall of this year. They keep trying to get it right.

Go to Dell's site and see if there are Window's 7 drivers for your model. If not, try downloading and installing the Windows Vista drivers. Right now, you might not have a driver or a good driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers and the Chipset (which has the usb ports).

Hi john35809,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the operating system you are using, whether Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7.

1. If you are suspecting the recent Windows Updates caused the problem, you can try System Restore:


2. You can also try to reinstall the touchpad driver by downloading it from the computer manufacturer's website (example: http://support.dell.com). Don't forget to restart your computer after reinstalling the touchpad driver.

Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa.
