My laptop is very slow


Hello there,
When a laptop tends to be performing very slow. There are different factors that could be contributing to the problem. It acting sluggishly tends to be quite annoying, frustrating, time consuming and not encouraging to use.
The cause could be from the RAM size, the RAM is what determines the speed of the laptop, if it is large, it will perform faster but if it is low, it will perform very slowly. RAM can be upgraded, and that involves you turning the laptop to the back and unscrewing it open, you will see a processor connected to the mother board, that is the RAM, check the size and try to replace it with a larger RAM.
Also, if there is a virus on the system, it can contribute to making the IBM perform slowly. Try to install AVG anti-virus free edition 2011 on the system. That will help you eraze the corrupted file and protectyour laptopfrom being exposed to any virus of any kind.
Ensure you are not running on windows vista or windows 7, try to ensure you are running on windows XP, as the IBMs mother board will act sluggishly if windows vista or windows 7 is the current operating system.
Be sure not to have too many load on the hard disc also. Try to ensure you are using an external hard disc for the laptop to save large files. As saving too many applications and folders on the hrd disc can make the laptop act very slow.
Would be glad to know if this information washelpful to you. All the best. Elect_Comp

Acer aspire 3680-2022 with vista is just too slow. Intel celeron M processor 420; 1.6 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, IMB L2 Cache; 80 GB HDD; 512MB DDR2; Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950


More memory will make a difference. Vista is a memory hog and 512 is really not enough. You don't say what version of Vista you have but Microsoft say the min spec for Home Basic is 512MB, other flavours 1GB. Gety as much in as your mainboard will support - 2GB would be my minimum..

A Celeron 1.6 processor isn't going to be that fast if you are running a lot of apps and not much you can do about that (pretty unlikely you can upgrade; very few laptop mainboards let you).

There are a few tweaks you can make that may help but you (defrag, set Windows to better performance rather than better display, format and re-install) but stick some more memory in and see how you go.

CLEAN MY COMPUTER


If you are using Windows Vista go to your control panel>perforfance and maintenance. Click on disk cleanup first then when that is done run a defrag. Reboot and you should be running faster. Hope this helps.

Help me with my laptop being slow


This folder is there because your system was upgraded (Possibly from Windows XP) to Vista. If you're satisfied with using Windows Vista and don't think about changing it back to what you had before, it's safe to delete these files.

Try changing the setting of your computer. I use vista 32 bit and it'a fast.
The specs of my laptop is dual core processor T3200, (2.0GHZ), 667 MHz Fsb, 1mb(cache)
Moblie intel Graphics media accelerator 4500. And it's really fast when i changed my setting.

Here is my instruction to make your computer fast.

1. click start menu
2. Control panel
3. search for performance on your search box
4. click performance info tools
5. click adjust visual effect
6. click the box with best performance

and there it will go like it is a CPU.

Hi I HAVE A TOSHIBA EQUIUM A100 027 MODEL RECENTLY HAVE TO RESTORE IT TO FACTORY SETTINGS AFTER ERROR LOADING WINDOWS. everthing went fine but it took about 4 hrs to load vista from restore disks laptop...


I think the BIOS might be fried on the motherboard and thats causing the no video then. It would need to be replaced. Let me know the exact model and I can verify for you if the correct BIOS was installed so at least you can know for sure about that.

I am using vista but it to slow. We we want use internet its performance is very slow kindly help me? In my laptop 2GB Ram


Hi,
firts of all you need at least 2 Gig of memory in your computer, and have you got Service pack 1 installed, click on start on bottom of task barm then control panel, then system, and up the top it will tell you what edition of windows vista you are using, also I would recommend doing defrag regular, also when you have your web browser open on the bar it will display toolsm click on it, and open internet options and delete browsing history as that also helps, but the 2 main factors here are memory, and defrag that will affect system performance, I would also download Firefox as that is a far better browser then Internet Explorer, as well as faster!

I hope this solve helpps you out?
