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.)

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.

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.

Im using windows xp sp2 and my startup is incredibly slow. im using alienware themes and alienware dock starts on startup.other than that ive changed the startup tune to something i converted on my own....

Sounds like you are running out of ram for the program. Try upgrading to some more ram in your system. Windows xp recommends minimum 512k of memory to run.

You need more memory. If you have windows xp you need at least 512 memory.

Laptop is slow and stalls

Try increasing the memory as 512 is small. Also defrag you hard drives often and make sure that you have at least 15% of the system (C) drive free.

Uninstall XP Professional

If the computer was upgraded, then go into START | CONTROL PANEL | ADD/REMOVE Programs, see if uninstall Windows XP Pro is there. If it is you can uninstall it and not loose anything and the computer will reveert back to the operating system that was on there, before th upgrade.

Sometimes it is there, sometimes not.

If that doesn't work, then go to START | CONTROL PANEL | ADD/REMOVE Programs | windows components, and take out any uneeded components. Also check your system tray (bottom right by the clock) and see if there are eny programs there that you can close or better still uninstall as they eat memory and slow down your system.

Slow laptop

I think you are out of luck with this. You can try upgrading the RAM, but I believe you will still be disappointed. Vista requires a huge amount of hardware resources and many drivers are not available yet.

Install Windows XP or try one of the Linux distributions. I prefer Fedora Core myself, but for many, Ubuntu is an excellent choice.

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.
