Question about Computers & Internet
My system is Windows 7
Slow internet connections happen for various reasons, even when you pay for a 'high speed connection' like DSL or cable.Because the internet (and World Wide Web) is built on hundreds of different technologies trying to talk to each other, there are many places where data can slow down before its reaches your computer screen. Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) might be at fault, certainly, but there are many other factors to look at before assigning blame. Some of these slow points are within your control, and can be quickly fixed with a little do-it-yourself effort:-
'' Disable background running services & programs.
'' Remove extension of browser.
'' Clear history & cache.
'' Check your preferred DNS address.
'' Optimize internet setting with reliable program to increase it (must use RegInOut for it.)
'' Turn off router for 5 to 10 seconds, then turn on it.
'' Restart PC.

I would suggest doing some house-cleaning using some Freeware programs. CCleaner: http://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ In the TOOLS section, STARTUP , disable ALL unnecessary startup programs. Malwarebytes: http://filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ Make sure to UN-CHECK/UN-TICK the Trial Pro Version during the install, you want the freeware version. Run a full scan. Also, take a look at these tips: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-things/10-ways-to-speed-up-windows-7/
REBOOT YOUR LAPTOP after these procedures.
In IE locate the TOOLS Icon (Top right Gear icon), open Internet options, Programs tab, select Manage add-ons, disable/remove ALL Toolbars in Toolbars and Extensions, select Search Providers, disable ALL except Google. If you haven't already download GOOGLE CHROME and try to load the same website, any difference? Are you using a Secure Connection? Home? Wireless? Wired? For further suggestions reply to this post.

Hello, Make sure that the RAM or memory of your laptop are properly seated in the slot,because a long beep sound like that is usually associated with memory problem, I would also suggest you increase the memory of your laptop by buying additional memory, but make sure your laptop can support it. Since you just installed window 7 and complained about your laptop slowness,it is better you increase the memory. Regards

Testimonial: "thanks a lot "
SOURCE: Toshiba Satelite A150-S4184,Hasent been used much,It was verry fast, now have internet again and loads very slow and takes long time to load pages,I think auto downloads instales windows 7,What can I
How much memory do you have in your Toshiba Satelite laptop?
Windows XP with Service Pack 3 needs a minimum of 1GB but ideally would run better with 2GB.
Windows 7 would need the same but there is no auto-update process to go from XP to 7 as this is not allowed - you would have to do a Custom install of Windows 7 which requires a clean install (i.e. format the hard drive and start from scratch).
If you are running XP with less than 1GB memory, then you need to check what the maximum memory that the laptop can be upgraded to?
The easiest method is to use the Crucial Memory web site System Scanner utility which will detect how much memory is installed and advise how much you can upgrade to according to the options available for the specific make & model of laptop.
If the laptop hasn't been turned on or on-line for a long time then you may be using a lot of resources downloading Microsoft critical updates plus updates for other installed programs like iTunes, QuickTime, Java etc.
Try downloading and installing a copy of the free Advanced System Care 5 utility then running the Deep Care tools which include System Optimisation and clean-up utilities to improve system performance.
