Sony Vaio VGN-FS980 is slow

I've cleaned up, defragmented, scanned for viruses and spywares for my computer. But it's still being so slow for everything. What can I do about it?

    Hi freeek_is_al,


    how many RAM does your laptop have? Which operating system is in use there? Did you try to run a diagnostic/benchmark software to find out if your laptop is running slowly indeed?

Generally there are a number of reasons causing your Sony Vaio laptop running slow or freezing. Common ones include lack of free disk space, registry corruption or redundancy, overload startup programs, virus attack, fragmented hard drive etc.

There are manual ways to get all those issues fixed but it costs time and energy, and most importantly it needs technical skills. So I'll recommend a quick yet easy speed up solution, as you can see from this page: http://www.sonyvaioslow.com/speed-up-sony-laptop.html

Aside from hardware many things can slow up your PC:

  • If the C: drive is too full Windows is unable to allocate a proper virtual memory cache on the drive.
  • Your chosen anti-virus solution can even slow certain machines down (post what your running)
  • A high % of the time it is spyware/malware related
Just to make sure the machine is completely malware free you should download and run this program.

Try to clean the keyboard. Sometimes the key might got struck, check for the \ key whether it is struck or not. If the problem persists you have to call Sony service center.

Sony Vaio VGN-TXN29N slow start up and battery


Probably full of spyware / clogged by programs.

Remove / uninstall any existing spyware program(s)
Download Malwarebytes(FREE) / install / full scan / delete all infections.
Ensure you have aPAID anti-virus program installed / update / full scan.

Open My Computer / right click on / C drive / properties /disk cleanup (Tick all boxes) / remove all files surplus / OK it as quite safe to do so.

Perform defragment. Start / Programs / accesories / system tools / defragmenter.

Go to Start / run / type in msconfig / enter / select start up / untick all BUT antivirus and malware program / close / reboot / tick box that pops up upon reboot.

This will absolutely speed up your Laptop. Perform this every week and you will never need for Tech assistance again!! (Except the msconfig one)
