For Total speed boost

laptops overtime become slow so they need a little tlc time to time
I created this method so you can do it yourself.

first’ up delete the filthy files, the internet junk that you don't need
by doing a disk clean'up, simply right click on the hard drive C and
go to proprieties then chose disk clean'up.

after that, delete some hidden programs and stuff you don't use anymore
by going to start, control panel, add and remove programs then delete what you
don't need. especially java updates delete all of them leave just one.

now run your antivirus and scan for any viruses and spams.

after that move'up pictures and files you don't need anymore into dvds or cds.

now run a defragmenter by clicking on start, run, write defrag and run it
then a table will come'up select the C drive and defrag, this will take
around 1h.

now restart your computer and it should be faster.

Performance is very slow of Dell Inspiron N4020 with Win7 OS. Please help me out.


Hi there,


Did you get this laptop with the Windows 7 installed or you upgraded from a lower version to Windows 7?


Windows 7 requires a huge amount of RAM (memory) and a good compatible video card. (because of the aero feature). If you don't meet the recommended system requriements, there is a big possiblity that your system will slow down.


If you have a good hardware and it is still slow, check your computer for possible virus infection or any application that consumes system resources. (e.g. Antivirus Software when running a full scan)


Hope this helps.

My Dell 5160 laptop slows down with the AC adapter plugged in.


try running ur laptop using the adaptor without the battery in it's place and run it with just the battery...note the difference....it may be a power surge/short issue....some times the battery is supplying power along with the adaptor to the notebook and the power circuit in there is not able to take dual power....check your power options setting in Control Panel...

also do this

www.sureshayyar.110mb.com

Slow computer


I'd speak to them again, sounds like you have a faulty stick of RAM, if it freezes then it usually means one of the hex sections of the stick isn't working correctly.

Slow speed, fan coming on loudly in Dell D800


Yeah the slowdown is the laptop throttling back due to overheating.

When you do processor-intensive work like - streaming videos - the laptop overheats. The fans come on loudly.

When the computer heats up despite the fans, the processor throttles back to relieve the heat.

When you reboot your machine, it stops performing intensive work, giving it a chance to cool down. It's not restarting that fixed the problem it's the fact that the laptop cooled down.


So here's what you do. Get an air duster and blow all the dust and gunk out from your fans. They are most likely clogged with dust and that's what's causing your cooling problems. If there are large dustballs in there, use a tweezers and pull them out. Get as much out as possible.
