Hi jadie_spadie

This could be one or more of numerous problems, one of them could be that your system files are all over the place. On your computer click Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Then click on Disk Defragmenter, this is a long process, you must not use your computer while doing this.

Your computer may also not have enough hard disk space, you can open your computer and have a look at it to see what size it is and make note of it (Make sure the computer is off before you do this), then go to My Computer and right click on Local Disk (C:) and select Properties and a new window will pop-up with the statistics of your hard drive, it should tell you the Capacity, the amount of Used Space and the amount of Free Space, if it is nearly full, you will most proberly need to buy anew Hard Disk for you computer to speed things up.

The other thing that it could be is you RAM (Random Access Memory), you need to restart your computer and at system Star-up, you should be told how much RAM you have in your PC, if not, turn off your computer and take out your RAM, check how much it is and if there is more than two, add the amounts together and you have it. Then go to the website that you downloaded the game from and see how much RAM is required for the game to run, if you cannot do that, i would suggest, as a gamer myself, that you would need minimum of 1GB RAM (1024MB RAM) for your game to run at an average speed, anything more than 2GB RAM is above average and 4GB is about as good as you get.

Check the speed of the Internet service, might the main problem is in your Internet connection, You can call your ISP to check that. Just to verify that your computer is working fine?

When i am playing game it seems slow in any options and play- like freezing

Hi there,

Are you referring to slow performance when playing a game on your PC? Or are you referring to your PS3 / 360 / Other?

If you are referring to your PC, I have a couple of suggestions that might help. First off, try these programs. They'll clean your PC of unneeded junk files:
I would also recommend disabling most of your startup items. They all hog the system resources when playing games. You can do this by going to Start > Typing in MSConfig > Disable Startup Items > Reboot.
The last thing I would recommend is a Game Booster. It disables all those system services that run in the background. You don't need them when you're playing games on your computer because all they do is make Windows look pretty. Here's a good one:

Hope this helps. If you're referring to a PS3 or a 360, let me know and I can reclarify my answer for you. :)

Installing downloaded games on pc very slow

Hi jadie_spadie

This could be a problem with your IDE or SATA cables that connect your Hard Disk to your Motherboard. Try replacing these before you try the next solution.

The constant yellow light usually indicates a crashed or non-functioning Hard Disk. You can take this to get repaired and only the data where the "Spindal Pin" crashed will be lost, otherwise the Hard Disk should still be fine. The screen does not come on during the event of a crashed or corrupted Hard Disk, so this is another indication that there is a problem with the Hard Disk.

My laptop is goin really slow and i dont know why. i downloaded my favorite game world of warcarft and it was fine but now everthing on my laptop including world of warcarft is goin realy slow please help...

Did you install many more things after you downloaded the game and before the game had gotten slow?
Sometimes games take a tremendous amount of resources from the computer, and anything else that can be running in the background such as anti-virus software can really bog the system down. If you game crashes to the desktop, this can be a sign that other programs are running and taking up to much of your resources. If you game plays fine, and then slows down after a few hours, and only a reboot will speed it up, than this can be a lack of RAM. I would suggest that you start by turning down the frame rates, and details on the game and see if this helps. Generally, games have the options to do this from the main menu. If this doesn't work, I would suggest that you turn programs off that aren't needing to continually run on the computer.
