1). new pc's usually come with baisc softwares so it is neat and tidy. when you took it home, you probably added a lot of other softwares, which will use up a lot of pc resources, namely Hard Drive, memory, data buses etc.....
this is one of the reasons it gets slower.
2). newly added softwares, bought or downloaded, if not originals, may contain virus. this is 2nd reason for being slow.
3).anti virus softwares also take up memory and speed, especially when it's running obviously or behind.
4). suggestion - after you clean up you machine by re-installing operating system OS (such as windows or linux etc.), make an image of the partition of the hard drive. when you feel pc slows down, bring back the image to overwrite the contaminated partiton. you can find some softwares named "ghost". that's it.
5). depending how big is your hard drive, make partitions. "C" for OS and drivers and simple programs only, "D", for example, for all other stuffs if you do not have other partitions. size of partition "C" should have 2G-10G and is very much depending on how many softwares you will install and how big your hard drive is.

    ps:



    image the OS, and store it in other partitions or media (see instructions provided by ghosts).



    every second you hook up your computer to the internet, you are exposed to viruses and they will bring down the speed of your pc.

Have a Neff D9610 cooker hood. Has 3 separate speed switches. Slowest speed switch does not work other ok. No noise from motor when slow switch on. Is the problem with the switch or the motor?


When on high speed the motor is running at it's normal speed.

When a slower speed is selected (mostly) there is external circuitry to reduce the current to the motor so it runs at a slower speed, though in some cases the motor could be specially wound for multiple speeds. The latter way is unlikely to be found in a cooker hood or extractor fan or other small appliance.

The fault with your appliance could be the switch or the current reducing circitry. It is only by delving inside and testing that the fault could be found.

Spin cycle won't pick up to full speed. It tries to, and sounds like it's trying, then won't, so goes back to slower speed.


sounds like a gearbox bearing failure. To repair this is expensive, I suggest it time for a new machine.

How do i speed up a 2844 printer. It was printing fine until we had to change computers. After the computer change it prints slower. We have reloaded the driver etc to no avail.


The print speed is controlled from the printer driver usually. Even though you have reloaded it, the default speed is probably lower now that what was set on the other computer. You didn't mention if you made any changes to the driver after reloading so check the speed setting.

If by slower, you mean there is more time between when you hit print and when the label actually prints, then that is more related to communications.

Hope that helps !

Temperature condition are good, but all fans are at higest speed. could you help me, the machine is under my table!!! if I've to install some software , the let me know where to find it. Thanks in advance


Not all fans are automatically reduce speeds on good temperature. You could try enabling Q-Fan option in your BIOS to reduce your CPU fan automatically, but for other fans you must purchase fans with speed control.

GE WHDRR418 top load washer won't spin at high speed; the washer does the complete cycle, and agitates in both directions and does physically spin, but it will not go into the 'high speed' spin that...


we can eliminate the motor and the switch since that part is working. sound like your timer might be faulty, timer make everything work in persistence cycles, if its goes bad sometime it tend to jump/skip cycles.

I have my fax machine hooked up through a magic jack. how do i change fax speed?


I contacted the folks at MagicJack today and for faxes they confirm your findings. They suggest the following: We do not officially support using faxing with MagicJack. Please try the following steps to use MagicJack with your fax (contact your fax vendor for details):
- turn off error correction on your fax machine or program
- set the fax machine or program to use the slowest speed available
- increase the speed, checking at each speed that faxes work

The change must come through your fax machine, not the MJ.

HERE is a link to the manual for your fax machine.




If you are having problems sending or
receiving a fax due to possible interference
on the phone line, we recommend that you
adjust the Equalization for compatibility to
reduce the modem speed for fax operations.
a Press Menu, 2, 0, 2.
b Press a or b to choose Normal (or
Basic).
�� Basic reduces the modem speed to
9600 bps. Unless interference is a
recurring problem on your phone
line, you may prefer to use it only
when needed.
�� Normal sets the modem speed at
14400 bps. (Default)
Press OK.
c Press Stop/Exit.
Note
When you change the compatibility to
Basic, the ECM feature is only available
for color fax sending.



There are only 2 speed settings. Since the MJ does not support faxing, if the slower 9600 bps does not work, you will be unable to fax with the MJ.


Thanks for using FixYa - A FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Increasing computer speed is a relative item. Depending on the state of your machine several items could help. None of the following changes are likely to dramatically speed up a machine, but they may change a mildly annoyingly slow machine into one with performance that is acceptable. Or most likely help return your machine to the speed it had when you purchased it.

Removing viruses , spyware and various malware can increase perceived speed by eliminating applications you probably do not want executing on your computer. There are free products as well as purchased products that perform these functions with varying degrees of success. Companies such as Trend Micro, F-Secure and Symantec, Panda offer free online scanners for a quick cleanup or second opinion and purchased products for continuous testing. ClamAV is an open source product (free) as are Spybot, Spywareblaster. Lavasoft's Adware offers a free and paid version of a adware removal tool. There are many more viable and suitable applications in this area. Some (limited) free games and applications may be broken by products like spybot so care should be taken in using that product if you desire the use of the related applications.
Eliminating startup applications you do not use or do not use often could reduce both physical and virtual memory pressure. Many of the exist in the systool bar area on Windows XP and often within a preferences menu windows can be instructed not to start them when the computer boots.

Cleaning up unneeded files on the hard drive and purging caches after closing or as you close web browsers could reduce issues with a nearly full hard drive. Temporary files tend to get left on the machine and are not cleaned up unless specifically requested by the users. Temporary Internet files when there are multiple users of a machine are kept by user so cleaning these up when closing a browser helps all users. (Using proper care and removing unused applications (often demos) loaded by the factory can reduce disk usage -- make sure you understand what is not needed before doing this or you may break your machine and utilize uninstallers to do the work do not start deleting application files using the trash can/recycle bin)

Compacting (not compressing) files on your hard drive periodically could improve disk efficiency and simplify file allocation because larger blocks of free disk space exist.

Compressing files on a hard disk if it is running out of space slows a computer because compressed files must be decompressed before they are used. Purchasing a second or larger hard disk (and transferring your files) so compression is not used can speed up a computer. Not all hardware works in all machines -- assure any hardware upgrades purchased are compatible with your machine.

Running less applications at one time can speed up some slower computers.

Some motherboards will accept faster processors -- but that change would require considerably more technical expertise than the above solutions. and not all processor speed increases are compatible with the existing memory. Likewise some (and limited) cases faster memory can allow the processor to run faster as it allows the processor to reduce it's wait time for memory.

Noise Reduction


This function reduces the noise that generated during long exposures. When shooting night scenes, shutter speeds become slower and noise tends to appear on images. When noise reduction is turned on the camera automatically reduces noise to produce clearer images. Since shooting time is approximately twice as long as usual, noise reduction is only activated when the shutter speed is slower than 1 second.
