Hi im josh in cebu phils may i helped you?
This is a very common question about a very common problem: My computer is slow, what can I do?
Rest assured that while there are indeed plenty of things you can do to speed up your PC, it may not be entirely the case that the computer is getting "slow" but rather that everything else is getting "fast." You noted that you normally use a newer machine, and many people who express that their computers are slow also have multiple PCs, maybe a newer model at work that is much, much faster. It's possible that your expectations have simply gotten higher over time, and by comparison, your older computer is getting left in the dust. You spend most of the day working on a fast machine, so your perception is that your older computer is getting slower and slower, when in reality it may be just as fast as it ever was. The mind plays a lot of tricks like that. It's something to think about.
Now on to your real question: How to speed up a PC, whether it's slowing down or not. Here's the steps I follow when trying to give a little extra oomph to a PC that needs it.

  • Clean up the disk. Uninstall unneeded programs (especially those that run at startup and/or put something in the system tray), run Disk Cleanup, and defragment the drive. This is a good first step that will almost always take a few seconds off boot time and application loads for any computer.
  • Run a full anti-virus and anti-spyware scan. You never know what's lurking on your machine, and these anti-malware tools can help you get rid of other PC-clogging detritus on your PC, even if it's not harmful.
  • Clean up the registry. This is controversial, as some experts claim registry cleaners don't really help. I've seen evidence to the contrary, so I recommend doing it if you've got a major slowdown. CCleaner is free and worth running.
  • Delete old network connections. Your computer may be trying to connect to shared hard drives that no longer exist. In Windows Explorer right-click on any network shares you don't actively use and click Delete. Under Tools, also click "Disconnect Network Drive" to see if there are any others lurking about.
  • Stomp auto-starting programs. Click Start > Run and type "msconfig" at the prompt. Click the Startup tab and look at all that junk that loads when you launch your PC. Do you really need "Adobe Reader Speed Launch"? Probably not. Turn off anything else that looks useless, but be careful not to disable Windows system components.
Those are the easy and free things you can do. If your computer is still slow you need to move on to the bigger guns.
  • Upgrade RAM. This is the one killer trick that will make almost any computer run faster. With an older PC, you will rarely have enough RAM to run today's memory-hogging operating systems and applications, and adding a high-capacity stick or two of quality RAM will give you a quick speed boost. Adding RAM is fairly simple, even for a novice, and you should be able to do the job in 5 or 10 minutes.
  • Reinstall Windows. If the above tricks haven't helped, it may be time to wipe the slate clean and start again, reformatting your hard drive, reinstalling your applications, and restoring your data files from a backup. You'd be surprised how much more responsive a freshly reinstalled Windows system can be, as you've wiped out years of temp files, garbled registry entries, old versions of software programs that have been upgraded repeatedly, and all sorts of other electronic junk. Reinstalling is easy if you have the "recovery disk" that came with your PC, and only a bit more involved if you're using a retail copy of Windows XP. Just be sure you back up everything you want to take with you before you pull the trigger!
  • Upgrade your hard drive. This is a more complicated solution, but if you're reinstalling Windows (per the prior tip) you might consider upgrading to a bigger and possibly faster hard drive, too. Hard disk storage is a performance bottleneck on every machine, and magnetic disks degrade over time. Some performance issues could be caused by a failing hard drive, even, and upgrading to a new model could really put some zip back in your system. As a bonus, you can use the original hard drive for backups or occasional storage, if you put it in an enclosure. good luck hope i helped you

upgrading your processor will not speed up your internet only the overall speed of your system. try antivirus scan or remove any spamware/ clean out temporary internet files. look at ways to speed up your browser. Consider increasing your internet speed via your internet/broadband provider.

My pc is to slow how can i speed it up?


First, try some diagnostic work.
  • Go to the Apple menu and open "About this Mac." Verify that it shows the correct amount of installed memory. (My Powerbook was unusually slow one day because a memory module needed to be reseated; it didn't have enough RAM available, so it was running quite a bit out of virtual memory.)
  • Next, open Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor. Click on the Memory tab ato see how much free memory you have. If there is little or none, look through the list of processes running to see what is using memory. Background system processes generally do not use more than 15 Mb; applications can use considerably more.
  • In Activity Monitor, click on the CPU tab. If it is running at 100% most of the time, and you have no applications open besides Activity Monitor, your system may be infected by a Trojan Horse spammer. You can confirm this by checking Network activity; if it is busy without Mail or a web browser running, and Software Update is not active, this is likely "enemy action."
  • If you have a combination of low CPU activity, very little free memory, and a very busy hard drive (check Drive Activity), you have too much stuff open for the amount of installed RAM. Quit your web browser, (you can reopen it again when you need it) and try to avoid having so many tabs or windows open. If you have a large amount of mail in your inbox, it's time to catch up on archiving or deleting older messages - a large inbox needs a lot of memory to run.
  • If you are running a massive Photoshop process in the background while watching an internet video, the CPU will be running at maximum speed, and sometimes it will get a bit behind on the video. There isn't much that can be done about it except to wait; photo rendering is inherently computation intensive.
  • Make sure the cooling system is running properly. Some systems will slow down if the processor gets too warm to avoid overheating. Others simply wait until the temperature hits a limit, then shut everything down (oops - there goes all the unsaved file work ...). I don't know how the intel PowerMac handles overheat conditions, but it may be the former case rather than the latter.

I play fifa 12 but it is very very slow so i cant play plz help me


First I need to know about your machine (technical details) like Model of processor, Installed RAM and Video card with memory size or model number of it.

This is normally happens for the Graphics (Video) card. If it has lower memory capacity as well as processing speed of video card's GPU than the games required.

This is also cause for the lower installed memory (RAM) size, as Games requires.

You can get several information of your PC by System Properties. I don't know which operating system you are currently using so I can't tell you specifically how to get them. In case of windows go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Information 6_25_2012_10_12_23_am.jpg

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.

How do i increase the speed for pentium(R)4cpu 3.00ghz


you can increase your speed of your processor installed in your computer by adding more memory that your computer or motherboard and processor can support. Sometimes even you have a high speed processor but it needs to have a high speed size of memory also in order cater more processing transactions in your computer. The memory function as the temporary storage of your current program or application you load in your syustem or you run in your computer. So the more memory size you have the more program or application you can load and the more program can be loaded in your memory it can help your computer fast or process more processing transactions in the computer system. So if you want to make your computer fast you have to install a high speed processor at the same time a large and fast memory.
Hope this will help you answer your problem. Thanks

The most common reason for slow processing speed is insufficient RAM memory.

Increase the RAM, if RAM available is no more than 512MB, then it must be upgraded.

Check also your hard drive state. If you have less than 1GB free, that will slow down the system. Go to Start>>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defregmenter and do a Defrag of the hard disk.

If you have at least 1 GB RAM, and you took care of the hard drive, then you can check the process starting up on their own and remove the useless one, or spot mala-ware that can affect speed. You can use a software like Hijack This, and search on google te function of each process started on the list reported by the software.

You can download Hijack this here MajorGeeks | If download does not start, then click at the top of the page, where it says Click Here If It Does Not.
Be careful if you delete the wrong files using this software you can harm the system, and Windows may not work properly.

If you think you have malaware you can also install Spy Bot, and do a system scan. Download Spybot from The home of Spybot.

If all the above does not work, and there is no malaware, then you usually reinstall the system.

Check also the bios settings, BIOS can downgrade the CPU speed on default , even if this is uncommon on recent BIOS.

If a computer is still slow with a fresh system and enough resources then it is one of those rare occasions when you have an hardware fault.
Hardware that can cause slow down is: RAM CPU Motherboard HD Video card.

Some tips on procedure can damage your windows installation. Do not download Hijackthis software and do not change BIOS settings and do not touch hardware unless you are sure of what you are doing.
