At times, the boot-up is slow and the computer is slow/sluggish because the disk is not "clean" or there's a shortage of storage space remaining. If you have already tried using the Disk Utilities and/or other tools (e.g. Onyx) to fix/clean up the disk, and it still doesn't make any difference, and you still have a good amount of disk space remaining, and all your memory (RAM) is still working, there may be something else going on ... e.g. another process taking place behind the scene (e.g. downloads/uploads) and using lots of resources.

My laptop is slow and wont reboot


Put the Windows Op Sys CD in the drive and boot the system, Interrupt the boot process and go to the BIOS. Select the first boot up device to be the CD/DVD drive and then save the settings. Exit from BIOS and reboot the laptop. Windows should start from the CD. You will see an option to repair etc. Select the R Repair option and follow instructions. Once this has completed, and it may take some time depending on how full the HD is go to www.ashampoo.de and download the 30 day free trial application of Ashampoo and run this over your system to clean it up. Then run the defrag option in the MODULES tab - Optimise Performance Option- Defrag 3. Once completed your system will be cleaned and optimised. In order to make the performance even better - add additional RAM to the unit - you can never have too much and make sure that the HD has a minimum of 10% space remaining otherwise the laptop will slow down in operation.

Slow startup and overall operation


Well, there are a variety of reasons that can consequently drag down the performance of your Mac. Meanwhile, there are certain ways through which you can considerably speed up your Mac machine. For example, you can reset the browser settings to regularly clear useless caches and history, get rid of all unwanted widgets from the dashboard through the Dashboard control panel, remove unnecessary applications, find out & delete those duplicated files. However, if you prefer a more efficient way to speed up your Mac, try the following all-in-one Mac speedup tool as it can help resolve all issues in just a few clicks.

Problems with Ram


Hi, with my own Foxconn board I had simalar problems, the Foxconn website gave me the needed steps to rest the bios to cope with 4g RAM. I have forgotten the steps now. The web page is the one on the install disk, if you go to Foxconn via google you will only get a company promo. Regards mistyman
