Sounds like you have too much data on your hard drive and possibly too much stuff starting up with your computer so use jkdefrag, msconfig, startup control panel and ccleaner to clear and clean up the data on your laptops hard drive.

Use ccleaner first which you can get here
and then defrag your hard drive afterwards using
jkdefrag which is here

msconfig you can access by going to start --> run and type msconfig and press enter or click on ok and then go to the startup tab and stop things running that you dont need to run although using startup control panel which is here would be a lot easier and better as you can check the run keys in the registry as well as the startup and run once keys and make sure only the things you need to run at startup are actually booting up.

Once you have done that see if it is any better and post back

Firstly you have to do a locally or remotly backup of all your documents cause in this process you may loose some of your vital document. Check to see if your Operating System (OS) is up to date. Or you can do a Restore if you have creat One. Its a Software issue and once you Re-install your Operating stsrem all will be fine.

No sound after installing windows office 2007


Sounds like a driver issue. Check in your device manager. Right click on "Computer" in your start menu, select "Properties" from the pop-up menu and locate your device manager. If you see a yellow triangle with an exclamation point on it in your audio controllers you need the driver. See what audio device you have, Google it for the driver, or visit the Lenovo website for the driver. Download it and install it.

you cant do anything except throw it away and get a new one. that is an old obsolete computer. just get a more recent one like a t 40 or something. it can only be upgraded so much but it would not be enoughj to help.

IBM ThinkPad R40 Intel Centrino Upgrade to Intel Core 2 Duo?


According to system specs your system is not compatible with the Core 2 Duo or Centrino Core 2 Duo. To upgrade to those chips you would need to replace the motherboard with one capable of running those chips. If you decided to do that you would almost surely need new RAM as newer boards use newer technology. By the time you did this the upgrade would not be cost effective. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

My hp compaq nc 6320 is running at 987mhz


I believe the Centrino Duo steps the processor down to save energy when unplugged. Try restarting the computer with it plugged in (if it isn't plugged in now). You might be able to change or disable this function in the power management program if this turns out to be the issue.
