Question about Toshiba Tecra A3 Notebook
Using toshiba tecra notebook. using XP. almost 2 years old and was working well till a week ago...when it became really slow...the whole system seems to be slowing down or has slowed down, compared to the quick start up before. sometimes i get an error message right after the toshiba image screen flashes,,,while starting the system...just something like .."hardware error.." and advises me to restart, which i do and this message pops up again..
i do not have any cds or discks that came with the laptop, but i have a back up disk from my desktop, XP.
i tried to erase and re-install XP from the desktop disk..but that also seems to be taking hours and hours.....i have an antivirus scanner running all the time. latest and updated avast antivirus and also CCleaner with which all the temporary files are deleted and reg issues fixed (it claims to do that!) only few times i have been lucky to get to the part where windows start up screen comes..otherwise..i'm always stranded and waiting at the boot up part...please help..me!
I think there are lot of application that load at the time of startup and ecause of which your system is slow. To clean up startup items you can use MSCONFIG. this appoints you as a boss of your computer and you can select what programs should load and the ones that should be not allowed to load.
heres how you use this utility.
Do let me know if this helps.. :) best of luc...
