Uncheck tools in start up menu that you don't absolutely need on startup. Select selective start up and deselect startup items. Click apply, a window will pop up that says windows startup has been changed. Select do not show this box again and then OK. Delete browsing history and cookies. Go to C:\ windows temp files and select all, then hit the delete key. Movies and pics and music take up a lot of disk space and can slow down you unit. Manage your add ons in the settings menu. Disable add ons, they slow down your unit. Good luck I hope this solves your problem. Please post a solved comment on fixya, so I receive credit for the solve.

My Acer Aspire One D257-1679 Laptop Constantly Freezes. Maybe Windows 7 Drivers out of Date and is not compatable.Should I do factory Reset?. Thank you


I just fixed a laptop with windows 7 freezes

windows 7 support has ended
all you need ot do is reduce the number of programs the computer is running

C drive needs lots of free space

if you want to keep the computer ..these things help

first store what you want to keep on to usb sticks
documents ,pictures ,files ,

not on the hard drive

delete all the unwanted items off the c drive
look into the users ..remove "Temp "

go through all the programs on c drive and uninstall
as many non windows 7 and unused microsoft programs and also unwanted computer games and printer drivers
clear all the downloads
clear the memory cache
defrag the c drive
scan for virus and troguns

if using versions of office above 2000 will slow /freeze the pc

windows 7 when released was based as a 32 bit and some x64
window 10 can be uploaded only if window 7 has upgraded to stage 3 but it will be slow
stuff that is X 86 will slow windows 7

My laptop become very slow ...its 1 gb ram and 160 gb harddisk .... which os i should install please advise


You need to upgrad the amount of RAM.
The 4720 notebook is capable of running up to 4GB or ram on 32bit windows 7 OS

The OS requires 1GB of RAM to run.....

Therefore, you only have enough RAM to run window, and no spare ram that should be dedicated to the graphics and other system operations.

Action needed:
Buy 2x 2GB sticks of Kingston ValueRam and run the laptop on 4GB. It will be much faster than what is needed and should provide fast computer responce.

Cheers.

Your computer is constipated. Turn off all your virus programs,stay away from porn sites, then type msconfig in the run box, hit enter, select startup and remove all checks. Reboot computer.

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.

Performance is very slow of Dell Inspiron N4020 with Win7 OS. Please help me out.


Hi there,


Did you get this laptop with the Windows 7 installed or you upgraded from a lower version to Windows 7?


Windows 7 requires a huge amount of RAM (memory) and a good compatible video card. (because of the aero feature). If you don't meet the recommended system requriements, there is a big possiblity that your system will slow down.


If you have a good hardware and it is still slow, check your computer for possible virus infection or any application that consumes system resources. (e.g. Antivirus Software when running a full scan)


Hope this helps.

My dell inspiron mini 10 notebook using window 7 pro..why it always hang when i opened many application..


The Dell mini computer runs on a Intel Atom processor and has just 1GB of RAM on it.. So the computer is designed only for internet surfing and launching small applications.. Thats the reason it is called as a netbook.. It comes with win starter edition... It is not highly recommended running a win 7 pro on this machine.. It can be really slow on this Operating system... Thats the reason your computer is slow.. Try to run inbuilt cleaning like disk clean up to see if there is any iimprovements in speed.. Else switch the Operating system to win XP or Win 7 Starter
