Question about Computers & Internet

Computer running very slowly

My computer is running extremely slowly. It takes at least half an hour to boot when I turn it on. I have been able to bring up Systems Mechanic and it took a day to defrag. Defragging is done on a routine basis so that shouldn't have been a problem. It scanned and found 3 problems which it fixed, but it's still very slow. When it starts analyzing the system the computer freezes. What can I do?

In case you're wondering this is being posted from my son's laptop.

This is likely due to the problems caused by the damages to system files.

the damages may be caused by the virus or other problems.

I suggest you first run the virus scan and see the result.

If there is no positive results at all, you better send the notebook to the repair shop.

Tell me, for any changes.

Why is my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1" charging very slow.


There are a several reasons why the Galaxy Note 10.1 is not charging as much.
1. Too many application are turned on (check the task manager)
2. Too many notifications icon are turned on ( bluetooth, gps, wifi, etc.)
3. Plugging your charger using a computer

Are you using the original charger and plugging it into a wall charger?

How long did you use the Note 10.1 previous to noticing the damage? and was it extremely hot at the back?

If so, then maybe the battery isn't picking up from the charger. I've watched back to back movies while still using the charger but this can prove very devastating on the charger's outlet which became extremely hot after 4-5 hours or so of charging continuously. It turns out, the galaxy note 10.1 can withstand 8+ hours of ongoing movies but the charger outlet cannot. *If I didn't unplug it after 4-5 hours, the plug what have fried.

In this case, i believe the charger is more likely damaged than the Galaxy Note 10.1, which is more of a better scenario. Especially, since you charged it for over 24 hours, meaning it's charging something, but very slowly. Operating Galaxy Note while charging can prove detrimental in the charger's outlet and can in fact burn out.

I hope this info is helful,

I HAVE A TOM TOM GO 720 I SWITCH IT ON NO PROBLEM BUT WITHIN 30 SECONDS BATTERY WITH A YELLOW I IN A TRIANGLE COMES UP AND GOES OFF


The GO 720 charges quite slowly when attached to the in-vehicle cigarette lighter cord. If you have a USB attachment (that allows you to connect the GO720 to your computer) just insert the GO720 into the USB cradle - you don't have to turn it on - and let it sit there for about 10 hours. You should see the green light on the GO720 indicating that power is being received. In fact, I don't think you even need to turn on the computer, as power is always fed to the USB circuit. If you see the green light, then the GO720 is being charged. I think your GPS just needs a good charge.
