Slow connection


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:

- Refresh your internet connection
- Shutdown your router for minimum 10 minutes so that your back end IP can be change by service provider
- Remove your Temporary files from your system
- Try to use Reginout for constantly refreshing internet connections

I have a Dell Inspiron 2650 that takes about 5-7 minutes to bootup but once online internet speed is acceptable but can not make HTTPS connections. HTTP connects fine. Any suggestion.


Try to remove any unnecessary programs, replace your antivirus with Microsoft security essentials, run windows update and install all updates, upgrade ram, update internet explorer or any web browser you use. Make sure every software you have is legit and updated. I hope these suggestions work, if not, please comment.

Choppy playback, keeps stopping to load


Your Internet connection is too slow.
So, your media-player is getting "starved", and thus must "wait" for more content to be downloaded.
Upgrade the speed of your Internet connection, or connect to higher-speed web-servers, such as YouTube.

Hi, you will need to reformat your hard drive before installing XP, First boot into BIOS by pressing the F1 key during bootup, change the primary boot drvice to CD rom, save changes. Insert XP cd into drive and reboot PC; select boot from CD when this appears during the initial boot fase. Allow files to be installed. When this finishes, delete partion and then repartion hard drive. Select format hard drive, when this completes your PC will reboot, do not select boot from CD and XP will start to install normally.
Hope this helps, if not come back to me.

Hi, im using a brand new acer asprire x1800 desktop..and i can HARDLY connect to the internet using SUN BROADBAND (lan connection already disabled). i have been using the broadband for a few months now....


There could be several possibilities for your internet connection to slow, or stop functioning. Here is a small list of things to check:

1) Run Spybot Search & destroy:
This is a program that will help you find, and eliminate malware, it's free from Here. It also helps speed your PC up by removing unwanted malware that can drain your system's resources.

2) Check your scheduled tasks to determine nothing is set to run during these " down " times.

3) Check to make sure any wireless connections are secured using WEP or other such wifi security. It's a little known fact that people will " pigy-back " on someone's wifi connection to use the internet and download. this can cause internet instability.

4) Call your Internet Service Provider. Your ISP can usually help you determine if the problem is with your computer or their connection.

5) Check your network settings. Your ISP can help you determine the best settings for your connection, as well you may check to see if the network device has an updated driver from the manufacturer.

6) If all else fails, you may wish to take your PC to a licensed technician, or replace the network device if you feel it is faulty.

In my experience most internet instability that happens on a regular basis during a set amount of time is due to malware, or scheduled downloads.

How do i stop the cam from making me look slow when i video cam on msn messager


this problem can be caused by:
  1. your web cam being unable to cope with a high frame rate ( this is unlikely)
  2. your internet connection speed is low
  3. your computer is running to slow to prosses the web cam information
Solutions
  1. if your webcam cant handle high frame rates, then the only solution is to buy a new, higher quality web cam
  2. if your connection speed is low, then close down other programs that use the internet, eg internet explorer or multiplayer games
  3. if your computer is running to slow to prosses the information, then close down any unnessesery programs, for example games, internet, or even word and exell
good luck, please take the time to rate this solution
thanks

Slow 5 MINS TO BOOT FROM FACTORY DEFAULT?


I would suggest booting into Safe Mode with networking (do this by pressing F8 during boot. Just tap it every few seconds until you get the OS selection menu). Once you enter Safe Mode, go to www.gmer.net and download their removal tool. You may have what's called a Rootkit trojan. Those can stay in your system's memory even after a factory default reset.
