Startup(slow) Hi, ive up graded my Ram to 1GB, giving me a faster computer. The problem being my startup is very sluggish, ive followed procedures to do a disk cleanup and deleted cookies, but this has made no difference to my startup speed, i have heard that the Medion systems are in general very slow to startup. Could you please give me any assistance in getting my bootup to be instantanious. Regards J.Denardo

Hi,

1. Defrag your hard drive. Use the built in XP defragmenter (dfrg.msc). It's the only one that properly optimizes your system's prefetching to speed up boot time.

2. Go to Microsoft's website and download BootVis.exe. It will optimize your prefetching even further than the built in defragmenter. Use both to get the best results: dfrg.msc
first, then BootVis.exe->Tools menu->Optimize. Also, you can use it to benchmark your boot time before and after system tweaks and software installations.

3. Go to Start->Run... and type or paste "Rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks". This will start a built in optimization routine that runs in the System Idle Process
and shows up as "rundll32.exe" in task manager. It normally runs automatically every 3 days. It will run for 15 mins to half an hour, so don't try to do anything too intensive while its running. If you get sick of it running, you should probably
log off or restart to be safe, rather than killing the process.

4. Delete anything that you don't need in the Start->Programs->Startup folder, and
in the Registry under HKLM->Software->Microsoft->Windows->Run and HKCU->Software->Microsoft->Windows->Run.

5. Go to Start->Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services or go to Start->Run...
and type "services.msc" to display services running on your machine. About 1/3 should be automatic, 1/3 should be manual, and 1/3 should be disabled, IMHO. If you don't
know which to change, search google for "XP services" and read one of the many webpages that describe each service.

6. Use a partition manager to create a separate partition for your swap-file. Set its size to about 2.5 times the amount of physical RAM you have. You can do this by right-clicking my computer and selecting Properties->Advanced tab->Performance section->Settings button->Advanced tab again->Virtual Memory section->Change button.
Whew! They don't make that one easy to get to. Just don't completely remove your swap file, cause your system might not boot after that, unless you have a lot of physical RAM.

7. Repeat steps 1-3.

Ideally, XP on a clean install should boot in about 12 seconds from the time that you see the XP logo to useable (can open a program). With all my device drivers and third-party utilities, the best I can acheive so far is 18 seconds on my Dell.
Don't use Norton SpeedDisk!--It may slow your XP system boot time by about 6 seconds.Also never use norton antivirus.

If the startup was sluggish before the upgrade, the memory will only help when the PC is running or you have more windows open at the same time.
I would suggest to get rid off programs you do not use often, put them on a USB disk drive, you can also do a disk defragmentation.
Hope this helps.

Hi there

do the following

start>run>%temp% ... delete all thats in this folder.

start>run>temp ... delete all too.

start>run>type inetcpl.cpl ...delete temp internet files & cookies.

And also have a disk optimization software like tuneup utilities.

defragment your drive too as well as the registry.

Vopt is a great defragmenter. Registry mechanic as well.

hope this helps you.

    Having a slow system startup only means that your system takes time to load up the software you have installed and that runs during startup. As long as you maintain your system like what i said above, You can also try modifying you startup. heres how.



    start>run>type msconfig



    under the startup tab, uncheck all and restart your pc. this only means that you disabled the softwares that requires to start during startup. If you have antivirus installed, please check that so that you will still have protection for your computer.

Have you checked your RAM on your sytem properties? because in general, it will not to tend to slow..maybe, it didn't detect at all.try reseat your RAM to your motherboard.ok? try also check your video card, make sure it has bigger memory and transfer rate because this is also the main cause to slow the performance of your computer.. check also your operating system (windows XP) that must be updated because this will give the latest drivers of your hardware and software and improves the performance of your computer.

if still sluggish, let me know here!!!

    First of all, this tweak only apply to those who only have one HDD on their primary IDE channel (nothing else on device 0 or 1) and a CD-ROM and/or DVD-ROM on the secondary IDE channel. Each time you boot Windows XP, there's an updated file called NTOSBOOT-*.pf who appears in your prefetch directory (%SystemRoot%Prefetch) and there's no need to erease any other files as the new prefetch option in XP really improves loading time of installed programs. We only want WindowsXP to boot faster and not decrease its performance. Thanks to Rod Cahoon (for the prefetch automation process...with a minor change of mine) and Zeb for the IDE Channel tweak as those two tricks, coupled together with a little modification, result in an EXTREMELY fast bootup:

    1. Open notepad.exe, type "del c:windowsprefetch tosboot-*.* /q" (without the quotes) & save as "ntosboot.bat" in c:
    2. From the Start menu, select "Run..." & type "gpedit.msc".
    3. Double click "Windows Settings" under "Computer Configuration" and double click again on "Shutdown" in the right window.
    4. In the new window, click "add", "Browse", locate your "ntosboot.bat" file & click "Open".
    5. Click "OK", "Apply" & "OK" once again to exit.
    6. From the Start menu, select "Run..." & type "devmgmt.msc".
    7. Double click on "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
    8. Right click on "Primary IDE Channel" and select "Properties".
    9. Select the "Advanced Settings" tab then on the device 0 or 1 that doesn't have 'device type' greyed out select 'none' instead of 'autodetect' & click "OK".
    10. Right click on "Secondary IDE channel", select "Properties" and repeat step 9.
    11. Reboot your computer.

    WindowsXP should now boot REALLY faster.

    it worked for me once. you too can try

Hi! Ive got "cooling fault" on my galaxy 3000. Can


hello

If this galaxy 3000 is of European Type ( that is having a radiator with coolant) , then after following proper BYPASS/Shutdown procedures, you could level the coolant in the radiator. You may require the tool kit that the supplier normally supply for this type of job.Generally the design was such that no evaporation could occur, however at times the top up is required. It may be as little as 20 (millilitre) Please check also the cooling fan just below the capacitor assembly. I hope this will help

After switching on the power supply, my pc takes around 3-4 minutes to start with APC UPS, earlier it was responding within half a minute


Have you taken it off the UPS and tried connected direct to an outlet.

Does it take the same amount of time?

If so you have a software or hardware conflict that is new and needs to be researched carefully.

try using the windows error log to see if there any startup errors.

Lost microsoft office


Insert the office discs and select the repair option from the startup screen. This will overwrite any corrupted files and registry settings.
If this doesn't work you can do a complete reinstall by uninstalling in add remove programs and restarting your computer then reinstalling office. This wont affect any of your documents and will replace your office files.
