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

Can you help me to speed my internet access and my laptop is 2 days old i cant open my skype my laptop is hp compaq 610


Internet speed is dependent on the provider. If you have DSL and there are several people or computers using the Internet, it will be slow.
Your HP610 has enough processing power and LAN speed to get online fast.
If you have had this laptop two days, was it always slow? Or did it become slow?
If it became slow, go to Malwarebytes.org and scan your laptop for malware. If you do not have a malware prevention program on the laptop, it will get trojans which will slow it down to a crawl.
You can see the various products to prevent this here.

Did not have Webcam driver for Compaq C773TU model for Vista


You didnt say whether this worked before or if you are doing a new OS install but the web camera driver is part of the vista operating system. See below info from HP....

Microsoft provides an automated Windows update function that examines your computer and installs the appropriate drivers and programs for Service Pack 2. One of the updated drivers, Microsoft USB Video driver , is required for proper operation of the webcam on your HP or Compaq notebook PC.
If you have updated to SP2 but the webcam is not working, see HP Notebook PCs - Webcam Does Not Work with Vista or After Upgrading to Vista , for detailed instructions on manually installing the latest webcam driver (usbvideo.sys) from Microsoft.

I do not know which model of compaq deskpro I have, But I have used a couple ram cards from another compaq... it increased the ram but the video(from youtube for example) freezes... what can I do to fix it...


If you added more ram to the computer that is a slower speed, the memory will run at a lower speed overall. Even if one stick is faster, they will run at the speed of the slower memory. I would check that. Sometimes it slows your computer down to increase the ram if you decrease the speed.
If its the same speed, you can usually increase your video dedicated memory in the BIOS settings.
Good Luck!
