Question about HP Pavilion A520n (DW233A#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Runnng very slow. Could this be a hardware or software problem? When I click on the start it takes several seconds for the window to open and about 2 minites for all the info to display in the window. Also having trouble senting info to printer. It started by just being slow to print and now it won't print at all. I have a HP officejet J5740 all-in- one printer. I have AT&T DSL and it takes 2 to 3 minites to get connected and the home page to display. I ran a virus scan and it took over 14 hours to complete with no virus at this time. There have been viruses and they have been quarantined or deleted. When I search for a file it seems to take forever to complete searching. What can I do to fix all these problems? I have run a Fix-it utilities 10 professional program and it says that there was an error on the mother board with the clock/calender. Do I need to replace the cmos clock chip? I sure would appricate any help to keep me from having to wait so long to get so little acomplished.

Why does curser freeze with windows 7


Computer freezes is usually related to hardware, meaning the video card, random access memory (RAM), or another component may be underperforming. Software also can lead to a frozen computer, as can issues with drivers, the operating system, and malware; A virus or spyware infection on your computer might also be the source of freeze issues.all these things can stop a computer from working properly.
1.If the freeze happens every time a certain hardware device is plugged in or switched on, the device itself might be to blame. Check drivers update for the device, and download and install them to erase any bugs that might exist in your version. Similarly, if the freeze only happens when using one particular application, that program might also be the root cause.
2.Run the System Restore utility from the System Tools section of the Accessories folder on the Start menu to roll back Windows to a previous version of the registry. This will fix prior registry issues without affecting personal files and settings.

3.If your computer still keeps freezing up after you take the solutions above, I suggest you to download a software to deal with it. The choice is sure to be more effective and simple, but there are few free utilities for this issue. Windows Boot Genius is a excellent one if you wanna take this solution.

How to fix an iPod Touch that works slow


<p>If your iPod Touch is not running fast, you can get some measures to improve performance. First, you can check if you have the latest iTunes software and operating system (OS) running. If you do not have the latest updates, your iPod will not work at its peak. Second, you can delete some of your data to memory. If you have too much music, video, data and applications on your iPod, it will rotate slowly, like a computer running too many programs open at once. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Open iTunes. Click "iTunes" in the upper left and choose "Check for Updates". This ensures that you have the latest iTunes software to have. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB docking cable. Select the name of your iPod under "Devices" in the left pane of the iTunes window. Click "Check for Updates" in the main section of the iTunes window. If you download and install an update. This may take several minutes. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Look at the capacity bar at the bottom of the iTunes window to see how much free memory on your iPod. If it is almost full, delete some of your songs, videos, books or photographs. Videos take up memory, so if your movies or TV shows, delete some of them to speed up the device. To delete data, click the appropriate tab at the top of the head section of iTunes and connect the data you want to delete. Click Apply. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Press as the "Sleep / Wake" and "Home" button for eight seconds, or until the Apple logo appears. This is the iPod, which can repair minor problems. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Connect your iPod to your computer to perform a restore if it is still slow. Open iTunes, click on your iPod and click "Restore" in the middle panel. Select the option to back up your iPod, follow the instructions to restore. When the restoration is complete, click the option to configure your iPod from a recent backup. <br />

Why is our dell pc starting up so slow


This could have a million possible soultions. Some general possibilities are a recent software or driver update, a recently installed program, a recenly installed piece of hardware, or some malicious software.

You could also have a drive error. If you are using windows, run the checkdisk utility.

Start>My Computer
Right click on C: drive and choose Properties
Tool Tab>Check Now
Enable both options and click Start
Answer Yes or Ok for any following dialog boxes
Reboot and let the utility run - this can take several hours
The computer will eventually return to Windows

You should do this for every hard drive, but only C: drive will require a reboot.

If it is still running slow, reply to this post and I'll offer some free software suggestions to clean up your computer, but please indicate your operating system, anti-virus, anti-spyware, and firewall software.

Hope this helps - Good luck!
