Increase the speed of computer


The speed of computers depend on several things.
In your case >>>>
1. Check the hard disk ... Go to My Computer >>> Right click on C: >>> Properties >>> Disk Cleanup (to remove useless files) ... Again from Properties >>> Tools >>> Check Now >>> Tick on ( Automatically fix file system errors & Scan for attempt recovery of bad sectors) >>> Start >>> The computer will schedule the scan to the next start up, so restart the computer ;) ..... After finishing the scan go again to C: >>> Properties >>> Tools >>> Defragment Now >>> a new window will appear , click on Defragment button ...
By the way make sure that the hard disk isn't full. If it's , try to move some personal files to another place such as D: or burn them on CDs , try to remove useless programs, Start >>> Control Panel >>> Add or Remove Programs ...
2. 256MB of ram is quiet slow reallly at least 1 GB would help your computer loads. You just need to stop some unnecessary programs working ( Be careful the following steps maybe harmful to your computer ( If try to change the setting ), so don't change the setting of the system)... Start >>> Run >>> Write ( msconfig ) >>> Ok >>> A new window will appear ( be careful here DON'T TRY TO CHANGE OR EDIT ANY SYSTEM OR BOOT FILES OR SETTINGS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO) >>> Click on Startup ( This window shows the programs, which are running in the startup) >>> Remove ticks from the programs, WHICH YOU KNOW THEM, to stop them running in the startup ( this step is really useful to speed the computer up) ... By the way the computer will ask you (after restarting) about that change in the startup, just press ok and tick on (Don't ask me this question again).
3.Increasing the performance of the computer ... Right click on My Computer >>> Properties >>> Advance >>> ( Performance field) Setting >>> Here you can increase the performance by choosing (Adjust for best performance) and you can leave some visual effects if you like ( this step isn't harmful,but don't go to Advanced if you haven't experienced it)...
By the way, sometimes, having two virus protection together makes the computer works like a turtle :)
You should Only have and only need ONE virus protection installed on your PC.
You can click start-----click run-----type msconfig------click startup tabs,then you can uncheck programes that dont need to run at startup. Then click ok to exist..And you also can go visit http://www.make-pc-fast.com to download a speedup software.

Ok...so after i did a system restore after finding out that had some viruses and such on my computer, the computer did the system restore completely and successfully, but now there is a pop up that...


You'll have to uninstall the Dell Support software.

Go to Start > Control Panel

Then click on Add or Remove programs, see if it's in the list (Dell support).

If it's not there, then it will be in your Services or Startup, go to Start > Run... type "msconfig" without the quotes. This will open the System Configuration utility.

Go to the Services tab, and check the box that says "Hide all Microsoft services". Now look for a Dell service that is causing the pop-up error, and UNCHECK the box to disable it.

Do the same step again for the Startup tab.

Please, if you don't have any programs like photoshop or financial program, run system restore.

Windows startup does not complete.


Hi.
If The BIOS is showing initial splash screen, and completing POST test correctly, but Windows Startup does not complete, and you are in one of the following situations:

  • You get a black screen with a cursor blinking.
  • You get a black screen with test or command prompt.
  • You have a blue screen with a warning message.
  • Windows keep restarting.
  • Windows is freezing.


Any of the condition described must occur before getting to login screen or to Windows desktop, or the problem is other than the one described here.

If you get a message saying Operative system not found you may also be in same situation. Only in that case the disk may also be physically damaged, and you may have lost your data, or disk may need replacement.


The conditions above usually tell us that the Windows system files needed for Startup are corrupted.
Windows cannot load the files anymore and will hang on with the cursor blinking.
When this happens you need to reinstall the operative system.

To start you can try loading the system in safe mode, by pressing F8 on Startup.

If the computer is starting in safe mode, try doing a system restore to a recent date before the problem started. This will be faster than installing a fresh system, and most of your settings will be preserved.

You may find out that when the system does not load, most computer will not even start in safe mode.

Check also that there is no CD, DVD or floppy inside the computer, also disconnect any connected USB device, apart mouse and keyboard, and attempt starting the computer again.

If all that does not work, then you will need to reinstall Windows.

Installing Windows is not a complicate operation, all you need is the computer recovery disk, or a Windows install disk valid for the licence number printed on the Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity sticker.

If you use a recovery disk, remember to choose partial recovery, so that the original data contained in the hard disk won't be deleted.

Using Windows generic disk you will need to choose Update Recovery if asked, install the system on top of the same directory (eg: C:Windows), and you will also need to choose Leave System File Intact, when asked by Windows setup.
Using a Windows generic disk you may also need to install additional drivers, that usually are available for download from the manufacturer website.
Even choosing a partial recovery , or an update install, some of the installed software may be affected, and may need a fresh setup.
Another way to proceed is installing a copy of windows into a different folder (eg. C:/Windows000), and choosing to leave system file untouched.
This will reinstall system files hosted in root folder, and sometimes may bring back to life the old system.
In that case you will be asked what system to start from Windows boot manager on Startup, your old system will be the second one.

Using this method is better to remove the new installation Startup from boot manager after installing and testing that the old system is back at work. This is done editing the system hidden file Startup.Ini, hosted in root folder. The file is a text file.

If you have important data inside the hard disk, it is always advisable to copy all data onto an external media. Even if the procedures described normally do not delete your data, when doing maintenance on a computer there is always the chance to loose data.
If the computer is not starting because of a system problem, the data can only be recovered using a boot disk, or physically removing the hard disk drive from computer, and connecting it to a different computer (an external enclosure may help).


This same instructions broadly apply to all recent Windows operative system, Windows seven setup is slightly different from the procedure described here.

When powering it up it starts to boot I get a blue screen then it goes black where do I start ?


Try starting your mac from it's install disc.
1) First turn off your computer.
2) Then restart it, right when you push the power button to turn it on, press the option key down and hold it
3) pressing the option key will bring to a screen where you can choose your startup disk. Usually, you'll see your Macintosh HD available to startup from. Don't choose anything yet.
4) Insert your install disc into the CD slot.
5) wait a couple of seconds and then clock on your install disc as your startup option.
6) after clicking on the disc, go to the menubar and click on Utilities then disk utility.
7)once the disk utility app is open hit "verify disk permissions"
8) after you've "verified disk permission" hit "repair disk permissions"
- this might take a long time depending how much you've actually done this (which it's good to do every other month or so to keep your mac running smoothly). things might seem to freeze up as well, but it's the mac trying to verify and repair broken permissions on your computer. Don't that's normal.
9) after you have repaired the disk permission, reboot your mac by quitting disk utility and then choosing the startup disk as your normal macintosh HD. That should do the trick. If not, tell us what has changed.

It takes too long to start up


Try deleting your temp files to clear up space as well as run hard drive defragment and disk clean up. This helps most time. If you find that your systems is still running slow, you may need to add more memory to process the data you have on your hard drive.

Good Luck
