Re: Very slow

You also can have to many programs running in the bakgraund. Please try change settings in few programms being installed in systems tray (right, bottom corrner of the screen). if you will find there a programm which you do not used to use all the time< chcande in its properties to do not load on a start up. Another thing can be to many programms and files on the bootable disc, as this usually slow downa the system. I agree with good clean up offcoure (old programms, system registry etc.)

Re: Very slow

You need a good clean out in your registry and programmes you no longer use.  You laptop is slow because of this download this trial-ware called Tuneup Utilities at this address  trial last 30 days so you have till then to make up your mind if you want to keep it.  It is also fully functional until it expires. Pay attention to the Start up Manager and stop all unnecessary programs from starting.  It will tell you which is needed and which you can turn off follow the instructions and you will be a happier person at the end of the rainbow.

I upgraded my GATEWAY MX6959 LAPTOP memory from 1gb to 2gb speed 667mhz and 6400 i researched and it said it would work, i had windows 7 ult installed after memory upgrade it wont boot up and ask to

Have you ever booted in win7? It may be a win 7 issue not a memory issue. Does it boot with the 2 512 MBs of memory. unplug, remove battery, install the 512 MBs memory, reboot.

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.

Recently I have purchase a Toshiba Satellite L650 I5311 laptop, its interl core I3 - 350 M processor, 2.40 Ghz, 3mb L2 Cache, 320 GB SATA, 4GB DDR3 RAM, onboard graphics, the problem is the system is...

Only things that i can think of is that Norton anti virus has been known to be a bit of a system hog, so maybe search for an alternative, otherwise you may have a 32bit version of windows installed, getting a 64 bit version installed might see some increased performance, but otherwise make sure you have limited programs at startup, the more programs you have starting at startup will fill up your RAM and in turn slow down file swappage because the RAM is full

The only thing that is really a let down with your new laptop is the onboard graphics card, but that shouldn't be effecting file swappage, only effecting graphical programs.

however it could be because your running a Video/Webcast as well as a couple of other documents your graphics card might not be able to handle it, sadly you can't upgrade a graphics card in a laptop.

hope this has helped

Getting 330 error. In order to fix that, you can run this command at dos prompt > SFC /SCANNOW
It can fix errors at windows XP. Normally there are two memory slots for toshiba satellite. You might be running at 512 or two 256. You can purchase two 512 or i 1g.

Upgrading processor on an iBuddie A900?

i have the same model with 512 ram and no difference with the video. Its the 133 front bus is just too slow for todays video speed. Adobe flash keeps upgrading for the faster computers and outdates the older machines. What i did with my I-Buddie was to take XP off, it weighs it down with all the processing going on in the background. I put Ubuntu on it and WoW! speed is way up again. Video is watchable much improved over XP.

Add memory to HP/Compaq nc6000?

Yes you should increase the memory. XP runs suitably well at 512mb. At 1GIB it blazes.

The memory meter is pegged because it is having to use the Harddrive as ram (Swapfile) which is 1000x slower than RAM.

XP with nothing on it, straight from the factory will run with 256, but after 3-6 months of use, and adding applications it will get progressively slower.

Inspiron 1150 Slow startup, slow printing, unable to run 2 programs at once

What Operating System do you run? If it is Windows XP SP2 (Home Edition or professional), here are some things you can do to speed up your system. 1st you should remove all programs that are not required from the start menu. Start > Run > Msconfig > startup tab. Unselect all that are not necessary. Also Right click on my computer > properties > Advanced > Performance settings > Adjust for best performance. This should speed things up a little. I would recommend atleast 512 MB of memory to run Windows XP and its applications decently. You should consider an upgrade.
