Download a program called spybot s&d from here http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html install it and update it then run a scan... remove any spyware it finds. then go to start.. run ... type in msconfig and unmark any programs that you don't need to run at start up.

Slow boot HP Pavilion zv6131us


Eric,

There are a lot of factors that can be a cause to slow boot up times. Sometimes it is a lengthy process to figure out what or why the boot time takes so long.

In Windows XP the first step that I would perform is to click on Start>Run and then type: "msconfig" and click OK. (Don't put in the " marks.)

Once you are in the System Configuration Tool, click the Startup tab. Disable all of the items in that list. Then click the Services tab. Check the Box for "Hide all Microsoft Services" and then disable all.

After clicking "OK" you will be prompted to reboot the computer. Do so. Time the boot/startup time. If it has significantly improved, then half of the troubleshooting is done. Next, you will need to go back into MSCONFIG and go to the services tab and enable a few of the services. Then apply and reboot. Make sure to write down which services you've re-enabled and make sure to time your bootup.

Through the process of elimination, you should be able to find out which service is slowing the system down. If you have rechecked all of the services and the system is still booting with an acceptable speed, then begin checking the startup items. Do the same process of checking just a few items at a time, writing down which ones you are checking. After rechecking just a few, apply and reboot, timing the boot up time.

Through this process you should be able to find the services or startup items that are slowing your computer down. Once the offending services or startup items are identified, you will need to make a decision of whether to leave that item out of the startup process or possibly reinstall that program.

If you find the offending item, and are unable to identify it by name, you can always go to Google and type that item's name into the Google search and it may give you an indication for what that startup item is, or what it is part of.

Sometimes, if you have a virus or malware, you may find the items listed in startup. If you do find a suspicious item, then you will need to make sure to run a full malware scan to remove any of those items that are unwanted.


Hope this has helped steer in the right direction to find out why your computer is running so slowly!

I already have 512 ddr2 667 ram .So now I want to add an extra 256 ddr2 533 ram to my Intel D102ggc2 motherboard .So can I able to do this .


Open your computer's case and check for a free slot on the motherboard. If there is any, then you can add another memory module, no problem with that.

Slow Norton Computer

Norton is heavy application and require an advance PC configuration i.e. RAM (512 MB) and latest Processor which can support the application.
No doubt Norton is quite an efficient application and keep a good check on viruses and other malicious programs.

I have a Gateway computer, model M460E which has 1Gb of RAM and an Intel (R) Celeron (R) M Processor 1.50 GHz and though it has enough RAM with XP, it is slow to warm up. It is encrypted with True Crypt...


First contact gateway or visit their website and findout what the model and part No. of the fastest Intel processor that your motherboard will support is. (Your mothrboard support manual should have this information also). Then try to find one - you might have to try E-Bay if they are no longer manufactured. A faster processor will definitely help.

However incrasing the amount of RAM will help even more. Windows will use all the physical RAM that you can install. Windows will always run faster with more RAM as it will not have to access virtual memory (your comparitively slow hard drive paging file) nearly as much.

Also, If you have the time and a good way to back-up your data files you might want to consider formatting your hard drive and installing a fresh load of your operating system. This is a good idea if you have noticed that the PC has been performing slower and slower over a long period of time. The system registry becomes loaded with no longer needed entries (often from the failure of software removal tools to do a thorough job). Same for the hard drive - even after you defragment it.

Besides, a fresh load would provide you with the opportunity to see if True Crypt is slowing you down to any significant degree. Time a boot of your operating system before installing true crypt and then check the boot time after installing the program.

If it shows only 448 MB only means the RAM you are currently using is 512 MB only...person who changed your RAM might cheated you instead of putting 2GB RAM...And also check your laptop for any virus...

Slow


While it never hurts to update to the newest driver. If you did your same install, with the same software, and only have a problem now...I would definently look at system performance before blaming the driver or printer software.

The lower end HP/Compaq computers tend to come with a lot of software pre-loaded on them and are often memory (Ram) deficient. Personally I believe this is a marketing tactic to increase the performance discrepancy between their lower end and higher end machines on the floor. But regardless, no matter how fast your processor is you won't run very fast with 256-512 MB Ram or a lot of bloat-ware.

It's worth noting that if your OS changed, Win2K to XP, XP to Vista. YOu system requirements also jumped substancially.

Memory upgrade problems


Hmm if the pc takes DDR Ram , it should deffently take 512 sticks, have u tried booting the computer with just the one 512 stick ? or try putting the 256 stick in and 1 x 512 stick , test it that way with both sticks , some older computers there is a bios setting for upgrading to higher amount of memory, but in your case with DDR ram i dont think so , i mean it may be worth a shot going into bio's and load optimized defaults , press f10 to save settings, try one stick at a time after that , if still no go , there is a jumper pin on the mother board that u can move over a slot which will restet the bios, if u dont know this jumper pin or where it is, just remove the round battery on the motherboard for 30 seconds , then put it back in , try your new ram then , u will be asked to save settings on boot up , if it still dosent work the ram is either faulty or incompatible, alot of the time with Dell , HP /Compaq desktops there fussy with the type of ram they take, but if u ordered from dell it should have worked !! whats the brand name of the ram u have is it hynix? /HP this brand of ram has alot of issues with compatibility,
