You need to give more details...
Following are the common methods to increase computer running speed:
- Delete Windows temp files
- Run disk cleanup and defragmenter, this can help you clean junk files, and speed up opening programs and files. If possible, use a third-party programs rather than the built-in system tools, they take really a long time...
- Clean WIndows registry and run defragmenter. This can reduce registry errors and reduce its size, so as to speed up application response. Here is a free registry defrag tool which I feel quite easy to use.

Download slimcleaner from www.download.com and run the program, this cleans out junk from the hard drive, next download malwarbytes anti-malware from the same address, update definitions and run a full scan for infections, finally defragment your hard drive. The software is free and very effective.

Toshiba satellite a105-s4084 makes cut off/slow motion noise when listening to anything


Try a system restore bringing computer back in time before this showed up, or complete fresh install of your windows operational system. This will prove it it's a software issue, "which should cure the problem" or a hardware problem.

My Toshiba Satellite A15-S129 is very slow How can i make this first. Plz help me at suja.islam@yahoo.com


Saying a computer is slow really is not giving out enough info. The A15's came with 256MB of memory, and runs XP Home - which was barely adequate. So that'd be the first area I'd address: most computers run slow 'cause they ain't got enough memory, and memory is cheap, so it's a crime not to give it an upgrade. If you indeed have 256MB of installed memory, then you should add a 512MB module (it uses laptop DDR PC2100 or PC2700 memory) and that ought to do it.

Why is my computer so slow to load anything ,its even slowing my internet speed, i i open limewire and try to do anything online it doesn't even wanna move.


Hello

Have your computer always been slow or is it a recent problem?

If it has always been slow, you need to install more ram. Just take your computer to your nearest computer hardware store and they should inform you on what ram you need to buy. They will do it for free.

If this slow pc is a recent problem, you might want to defrag the computer. But this could just as easy be a duplication virus, so it might also help if you update your virus protector and do a full system scan.

My best advice is however to format the computer and install a clean copy of windows.

Hope you can find this helpful.

Kind regards
Andrea

My Toshiba satellite Laptop is very slow


i had the same problem with my computer. it may be that you have downloaded too many things. it loads onto your RAM storage, (computer files), and when it gets full, it goes onto the harddrive, (where you access files and things). clear up internet files and anything you don't need. if that is stilll slow upgrade your RAM. it fixed my pc

Toshiba sat. 1805-S254


I am currently using the laptop model that you described. Go to toshiba support, click download, click portables, click satellite, and where it says: choose model, click show older models. Type in your satellite model on the search bar, (1805-S254) and click 1805-S254 in the results and hit GO. Now, the second thing from the top of the list of drivers says: BIOS. click the plus. Find: ACPI Flash BIOS version 1.10 for Satellite 1800/1805-S204/254/274 (v1.10; 10-23-2001; 671K)
and click it. Download the file and run it. Now follow the directions to make a BIOS floppy disk. After the disk is created, restart the computer. When the screen that says: Toshiba comes on, hit F12 to boot from a different device. Then it gives you a bunch of options. Hit the letter on the keyboard that tells the computer to boot from floppy disk. Then it should erase your current bios and rewrite the old one in. DO NOT update the BIOS! In the new BIOS, toshiba has a file that DOWNCLOCKS your processor. This is what makes your computer run so slow. Now people have complained that computer has overheated and shutdown but since i've downgraded the BIOS, it's been running just fine! Hope this helps! If it doesn't, email me at: fneoh7832@live.com.

SLOW MOTION


Toshiba laptops are notorious for coming with a bunch of useless software installed that will no doubt slow your machine... thats just my two cents...

Anyway, add to that, running Windows Vista, Anti-Virus software, and it only comes factory with 512mb of system memory, and you will have one slow running computer.

First thing I would suggest, is getting a system ram upgrade. It should support DDR2 and have two memory slots. DDR2 right now is fairly cheap. I would go for two 1gb sticks for a total of 2gb of ram.

If you aren't savvy about tackling this yourself, take it by your local computer shop or parts super store and get the ram upgrade, 2 gigabytes total. You will prob be alot happier with it's performance.
