Question about HP EliteBook Computers & Internet
Now becom a very slow before this is good
PCs need maintenance from time to time. You would need to remove the temporary files on regular bases. On My Computer left click on drive C (or you OS drive) go to Properties --> click Disk Clean-up (it may take time to bring up the next main window depends on how often you clean). Then check all the checkboxes on Disk Clean-up for C: window --> Click OK --> Delete Files (you don't need any of these files it is all OS related).
On the same property window go to Tools --> Click on Defragment (based on your Windows version you will see different interface here) you have to defragment few times this will help making the disk space more organised the programs will run faster.
Go to Add/Remove program under Control Panel and remove any program you think you no longer need them ( be careful don't remove any microsoft related program unless you know what they are).
Still if you want to do more download CCleaner (http://download.cnet.com/CCleaner/) and install (be careful when installing it will ask you to install loads of other rubbish just ignore them and don't accept) it will clean the registry and has more options to optimise PC.

There are many reasons why this notebook may have lost its speed.
First let's start with the Windows flaw of too large a profile - if someone keeps all their music, downloads, videos, etc. in the my documents folder, the system slows down over time due to the profile getting too large, one way to speed things up is to create a folder off the root of c: and moving my documents to that. If you have a huge music folder on the desktop, that is not good practice.
Another thing which may affect the speed is a virus - do a virus check, use online scanners also as 1 scanner is never enough to totally detect everything.
Another thing is that the pagefile.sys file on the root of c: (the file which is virtual memory) gets corrupted and does not delete itself, boot to a live CD and delete it (it comes back automatically).
Another is upgrading to the latest and greatest operating system (which needs higher specs), if you upgraded, that may have affected your speed.
You may need to also run the chkdsk /f command from an administrator command prompt (this fixes disk and file errors which may affect performance).
I now run Linux Mint on my systems and don't have any of these problems, I get all the speed all the time which my system was designed for in a rock solid operating system. Google that if you wish to find out more.

If you have just installed the 2gb memory, it may be faulty, it does say that you can use 2gb modules so you may need to swap it
