Question about Time Computers & Internet
My window 7 computer is real slow when i turn it on it take a long time to boot up and then it is loading real slow and slow shut down window don't update like it did before i have it set on automatic but it not working good how do i fix this problem?
Hi, when you buy a computer it performs at 100% but when we install programs games and etc our storage( hard disk,ssd) fills with unnecessary files which bring down the overall performance of the computer.we need to cleanup these files from time to time.it will slightly improve the performance of the computer but we will not reach the 100% performance that the computer first had.Using an ssd than a hdd will improve a lot the performance of our computer.One last thing to remember.the less free space a disk has the worst it operates.As a last resort you can try format
hope i helped

Indicates that then hard drive is on the way out
first step is to save everything onto an external hard drive
then take it to a computer repair shop for an inspection
check how much space is on the hard drive because if you have a lot of junk on it , that slows down the start up and shut down p[rocesses
you can go to device manager and do a defrag of the hard drive to free up space

no this appears to be a problem that is not just happening once... I've been having the same problem... but my problems were worse... my motherboard and hard drive were both fryed by this problem... I had to send it in to acer and they replaced these items but the computer still froze up and died after I had installed windows media player 11 and aol... so I am starting to think it is media player's fault because someone else has mentioned they had installed it.... I'm actually sending it back to acer tomorrow and they are picking up the tab this time on shipping... (I'd be one unhappy customer if they weren't)... I'll let you know how it goes whenever I get my computer back again... only when I do I'm not installing media player....

Virtually infinite number of possibilities. Anything from a virus to simply having an overfilled hard drive could do that. You could do a few checks, and when you do those checks you can set a new Restore Point before trying each new step. First check the empty space on your hard drive, it's recommended you have at least 5GB if you're running Windows XP/2k. Do a Disk Cleanup from System Tools. Empty your hard drive as much as possible. Make sure you don't have too many things running on the Task Bar. Do CTRL-Alt-DEL and enter Task Manager to see what's currently running, if you have 50 or more processes running it's probably too much. Uninstall programs you never or very rarely use. Do an updated antivirus scan. Scan for spyware, adware, malware etc... using many available free tools. Defragment your hard drive. If you're still having problems, insert your windows installation disk, pull up the Command Prompt and type "sfc /scannow" without the quotes. Windows will scan all the system files and replace the missing and corrupted ones with fresh ones from the disk. You'll have to click on OK whenever a message window pops up telling you that windows wants to copy the system files from the windows disk. Reboot the PC. If still having problems, obtain a registry cleaner program like RegCure or similar (one that has good reviews) and run it. Reboot the PC after running such program. Backup your PC with something like Acronis True Image or at least set a new Restore Point before going any further. Run Windows Updates if not yet fully updated. By the way that clicking you're hearing that's your hard drive, processors don't make sounds, unless it's the cooling fan of course :)

I would recommend having the ignition module tested. I have had one of these vehicles with the same problem and that is what fixed it.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
