Downlaod Malwarebytes from download.com and use it to clean up malware. This has helped me. Also Spybot Search and Destroy is another good one for removing spyware & Malware. They are both free.

    sorry it posted before i finished. I have found that a slow internet connection is usually caused by spyware and malware. ADAware is another good one and free.

Your graphics card will not affect the speed of your internet connection, but may affect the rate of video playback from streaming or downloaded video. when your internet slows down it b/c wither your machine is being overworked or your connection is being flooded.
from my experience, when internet becomes slow, the computer has started taking longer to start up 90% of the time. If this is the case for you, where you have seen a decline in overall performance of your system, you have more than likely been infected by virus, spyware/adware, and have too many programs requesting resources.

press ctrl+alt+del, select the task manager and click the processes tab. then click on the column names "username" two times. this will list all the processes beginning with the ones that started after windows initially started.

if there are anout 20 of them or more than you have programs needlessly running in the background.

you must select all the programs that start automatically and go to the options menu and deselect the box that says "run on system startup"
then run a virus sweep. if you dont have virus, spy/adware, and firewall protection(all 3) then you must get them ASAP. they will save your computer from needing technically assistance as often.

free-avg.com has a great free version that is very easy to use and does most of the work for you

GOOD LUCK

Recently I have purchase a Toshiba Satellite L650 I5311 laptop, its interl core I3 - 350 M processor, 2.40 Ghz, 3mb L2 Cache, 320 GB SATA, 4GB DDR3 RAM, onboard graphics, the problem is the system is...


Only things that i can think of is that Norton anti virus has been known to be a bit of a system hog, so maybe search for an alternative, otherwise you may have a 32bit version of windows installed, getting a 64 bit version installed might see some increased performance, but otherwise make sure you have limited programs at startup, the more programs you have starting at startup will fill up your RAM and in turn slow down file swappage because the RAM is full

The only thing that is really a let down with your new laptop is the onboard graphics card, but that shouldn't be effecting file swappage, only effecting graphical programs.

however it could be because your running a Video/Webcast as well as a couple of other documents your graphics card might not be able to handle it, sadly you can't upgrade a graphics card in a laptop.

hope this has helped

Slow graphics when i play online or not online games please help me! thanks


You should check you network connection. if it is wireless, try to sit closer to the access point, or try it with a cable. If that fixes your problem, your internet connection couldn't handle the amount of data.

Good luck! :)

Slow Graphic Acceleration


i play WoW and i recommend you get at least 2Gig memory and with that card you need to run the game in low settings. The 5200 series card is not high end gaming card. If you have pci express slot i highly recommend a 9600GT. But first upgrade to 2Gig RAM

Problem running video with ATI x1300 video card


that is an old budget graphics card not meant for gaming. An Ati 3650 or Nvidia 8600gt or better would suffice for gaming. The minimum specs for games show what is needed just to play the game at the lowest detail and resolution. UPGRADE!

Slowing down suddenly when gaming


Hi rajiv2612.
Suggest you check for any software update's from GeForce for you're 8600 GT. Also check for any software patches for the game (s). (Include windows update service as well).
The normal stuff like running windows system defrag & disk cleanup utilities should be run once a month for gamers.
Lastly, if you feel heat may be an issue. Open the PC case & leave opened while playing the game that seems to slow down the most. If the game does not slow down (After checking & updating all of the above), than maybe you need to add a 3" fan to the case, so fresh air blows directly onto the 8600 GT.

Good Luck!

Probably more RAM, but 900MB means you must have a 1GB card - that's pretty good. 2GB total should be plenty.

Graphics card power


I suggest you change your PSU if you want to play hi end games and do more graphic stuff. This PSU will work only if you use your computer for low graphic things like busines software Office and internet, if you use CAD you better change it or it will cost you more money.

It would be more helpful to tell us what computer do you have, and what card did you install.
