Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook
I deleted a few files to free up some soace on my disc as recommended by Windows.After this when I vist a page and try to scroll down with either the mouse or Keyboard the page slowly goes down but a wave ripples through the screen and the whole process is very slow.I think it is something to do with the scroll lock key but not sure.I have tried to restore my computer to an earlier date before I deleted a few files but it will not allow me to go to a previous date.Can anyone help I am getting eye problems and headaches looking at this screen.Please help!
This can be caused from 3 different problems.
1. your hard drive is corrupt and the temporary memory or the system RAM is corrupting your video output.
2. Compressing files and deleting them may have caused your data to be accessed slower.
3. Your video card is dieing and needs to be replaced.
Replacing any of the hardware items listed above will not be worth it in comparison to buying a new PC. Plus it's most likely your old PC isn't going to work much longer if it's a Hardware Problem. If you don't have a lot of money and want a quality computer go to www.mindblowingidea.com/ComputerRescue to get a new PC. Anyway I'm sure you will get it figured out. If your afraid of Vista you should know Computer Rescue does not sell Vista. They sell XP and Linux.

By following a few simple guidelines, you can maintain your computer and keep it running smoothly. This article discusses how to use the tools available in Windows 7, Vista, and http://www.microsoft.com/atwork/maintenance/speed.aspx#">XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) to more efficiently maintain your computer and safeguard your privacy when you're online.1. Free up disk space
The Disk Cleanup tool helps you free up space on your hard disk to improve the performance of your computer. The tool identifies files that you can safely delete, and then enables you to choose whether you want to delete some or all of the identified files.
Use Disk Cleanup to:
Remove temporary Internet files.
Remove downloaded program files (such as Microsoft ActiveX controls and Java applets).
Empty the Recycle Bin.
Remove Windows temporary files such as error reports.
Remove optional Windows components that you don't use.
Remove installed programs that you no longer use.
Remove unused restore points and shadow copies from System Restore.
Tip: Typically, temporary Internet files take the most amount of space because the browser caches each page you visit for faster access later.
To use Disk Cleanup
Window 7 users
Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, then click Disk Cleanup. If several drives are available, you might be prompted to specify which drive you want to clean.
When Disk Cleanup has calculated how much space you can free, in the Disk Cleanup for dialog box, scroll through the content of the Files to delete list.
