Why my laptop takes a lot of time to start ?


Your laptop may be due for a reformat, if you have been using it for many years without. Otherwise you may need to scan for viruses/spyware, uninstall uneeeded programs, if you have multple anti-virus programs running at one time for example this can cause a lot of slowdown. YOu may need to run disk defragment, but without knowing what model or laptop you have it's difficult to provide more assistance.

Your hard disk drive is one of the most important parts of your PC. It's where all your system files, applications and user data is kept. Most people understand the issue of security, the importance of making regular backups of your user data as an insurance policy against hard drive crashes. Few people realise and appreciate the importance of having regular hard disk maintenance which is designed to keep it in good working order.

The ultimate way to revitalise and cleanse your PC is to wipe the hard drive, start from scratch and then reinstall the operating system. However, there is much you can do to avoid such a situation arising, simply by using utilities provided within the bundle of your Windows operating system.

Disk cleanup
The Disk Cleanup tool helps you free up space by searching your disk for unwanted files that you can safely delete. It can remove all of the following:

Temporary Internet files.
Files in the Recycle Bin.
Temporary Windows files located in the Temporary files folder.
Optional Windows components that you are not using.
Installed programs that you no longer use.

To launch Disk Cleanup via Start menu go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools
slasher_x_4.gif

A dialogue window should now appear enabling you to select the drive you want to clean up. Select the required drive and click OK.
slasher_x_5.gif
The specified drive will be exampined and the amount of space you can potentially free up is calculated.
slasher_x_6.gif
The results, showing the amount of space that can be recovered by deleting files that are not needed are then displayed on the Disk Cleanup tab.

Error Checking
Chkdsk.exe is a utility which verifies the logical integrity of a file system. In the event of the utility encountering logical inconsistencies in file system data, it will perform the necessary actions to repair the file system data. The same utility in earlier versions of Windows was called to as ScanDisk.

To Launch Chkdsk go to My Computer and right-click the hard disk you want to have checked. Then click Properties and select the Tools tab.
slasher_x_8.gif
Click on Check Now.

A dialogue box showing the Check disk options is displayed.
slasher_x_9.gif
Select the appropriate options and click Start.

You may get the following message.
slasher_x_10.gif
If so click Yes and your computer will reboot and then perform the scan.

Disk Defragmentation
Since files are constantly being written, deleted and over written to the hard drive, files are likely to become fragmented and scattered all over the drive. The disk defragment tool takes these files and puts them in order by eliminating spaces between files.

To start the disk defragment tool go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter
slasher_x_12.gif
Then select the Tools tab and click Defragment Now.
slasher_x_8.gif
It should now display the hard drives showing total capacity as well as the free space of the drive(s).
slasher_x_13.gif
Now select the drive you want to defragment and click Analyse.
slasher_x_14.gif
The drive is scanned and a visual representation of how it is currently fragmented is displayed.

Depending on the the results of the analysis, you will be advised as to whether or not the volume should be defragmented.
slasher_x_15.gif
Even if it's not necessary, you can choose to Defragment anyway if you like.

The time it takes to defragment the hard drive is dependent on the size of the drive, how the fragmentation lies and how much free space it has.

As the drive defrags you can see how it is neatly repacking the files by looking at the bottem visual bar.
slasher_x_16.gif
Once it is complete you will get the following message
slasher_x_17.gif
You can choose to view the report which will show hard drive information such as free space, used space, cluster size and the free space as a percentage. Or you can just lick Close as the defragmentation is now complete.

Doing these checks frequently will prolong the lifespan of your hard drive and make sure it's running at maximum speed.

It won't complete the defrag. Does that mean the hard drive is going bad? The laptop is very slow, hard drive spins a lot.


You definitely should back up your files before trying to solve the issue. To defrag first check if you have enough free space and if some programs are running that are interrupting the task. Run a diskcleanup and chkdsk. The Windows defrag program will not defrag under less than 15% free space and also sometimes if other programs write to the disk while its running. So download the trial version of a reliable commercial defragger and try. (They will defrag in less than 5% free space and run in the background).

Format the Operating system and start fresh

Some useless programs or virus's may be slowing down your system
a reset will enable you to regain full speed of your pc again.
And don't forget even with loads of memory the CPU may be lacking to run most of today's programs all at once.

Maxdata desktop pc has install problems & runs very slow


I may be completely off base, but you should look into how much free disk space you have on the drive, and whethere it is less than 15% disk space free.

Windows will not defrag if there is very little space free. In that case, you can use disk compression, defrag then remove the compression. Or uninstall thngs you don't need, then defirag.

But if you are up against it with very little space left, you will continue to have problems.

Good luck,

Programs stop responding. sometimes if i open task manager it will proceed


hi, there may be multiple causes:

to exclude some :

- run a vir-check
- defrag the hardisk
- make sure there is enough space available on drive c:, else free up some space/ delete data you don't need / uninstall programs or transfer data to another drive/ make a back-up
- defrag the registry/clean/fix the registry using Piriform Ccleaner (freeware)
- you may be low on RAM memory or are using an advanced operations system on an older machine
- your PC or laptop may overheat
- (are you facing these problems when CPU load is high? and /or you are executing many programs simultaniously?)
there is lots of possible causes:
exclude some, check again, note some problem details

do not hesitate to come again

Unable to defragment


If defrag won't run at all and says you don't have enough room on the drive, you may need to delete some unused files. Defrag needs some empty space while it's working.

Defragging the drive is best done in safe mode so that nothing else will be running to interfere with the process. Turn your computer on, then after the Compaq logo screen comes up, press the F8 a few times (you're only supposed to have to press it once, but sometimes it doesn't seem to work). You should then get a startup menu. Choose "safe mode." Once Windows is running (the screen may look funny because of color and resolution settings) you can start defragmenting. Start this before you go to bed and let it run overnight. When it's all done you can shutdown and then restart normally.

Hope this is helpful.

Computer slow


you have to many programs installed on your desktop that are taking up space... also you could have a virus that can hide from the defrag..... also the F-secure program could have something to do with it.. they take up a lot of space

To slow


Computer slowdowns have several factors.

How much memory do you have?

If its 256 or below, try adding or upgrading it to 512 mb or more. Having insufficient memory causes your computer to take some space of your hard disk as a substitute, which is a lot slower than the memory ram.

Also check how much space is available on your hard disk. About 15% of the hard disk space must be freed to prevent slowdown.

Use the Disk Cleanup tool to clean some unneeded files. Go to My Computer, then right-click the drive you want to clean up, then click Properties, and click Disk Cleanup.

Try also to defrag your files to lessen the time for the access arm of your hard disk to search/read a file. To defrag your hard disk (or other storage device), go to My Computer, then right-click the drive you want to defrag, click on Properties, then tools, and click Deframent now. Analyze first so you will know if you should defrag the volume, then defrag if necessary. Do this every month to prevent too much fragmentation of files.

Scan for virus and spyware, becuase most of them take hard disk space, memory and have high CPU usage, thus making your system slow even there is no program running. For free anti virus, try AVG. For anti-spyware, try SpyBot S&D.

Also make sure that your computer is properly ventilated. Heat could also limit the performance of your computer.
