There are lots of ways to run a PC faster, combine them all and you'll have an easier time.

Empty the \Windows\Temp\
Empty the \Windows\Prefetch
Empty your user History and Local Settings\Temp folders

Careful now - Right Click My Computer, Manage, Services and Disable Computer Browser and MSM (if you don't use it) and set Automatic Updates to manual. DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING ELSE unless you know exactly what you are doing.  Each PC/user has different requirements which have to be custom addressed beyond these 3 things.

In your screen settings, Display Properties, Appearance, Effects, remove all the ticks, they all slow the PC down 

Stop processes in Task Manager: Ctrl Alt Del, Right click alg.exe, click End Process.  It should automatically end after startup, but it doesn't.

Start, Run, Msconfig, Startup tab, Untick items you don't use.  You don't usually want things to start here, except maybe your antivirus, bluetooth and wireless.  Now go to the BOOT.INI tab and change the timeout on the right to 3. (Speeds up boot time)

Download and run all of these one at a time:

Free:
Ad-Aware free
AVG Free
CCleaner
Cleanup
HijackThis
Little Registry Cleaner
Spybot
Web Eraser

Buy:
Regcure
XoftSpy

When you run any of these and it asks you if you want to backup first, ALWAYS select YES.

And before you do any of these things, make a full backup of the data that you couldn't bear to lose.

Good luck

Well a number of things will ensure your system runs fast however like most things your PC will need a MOT every 2 years i.e. a full reformat

However you can do the following to ensure your PC does not slow down

1) Dont visit any sites you are suspicious off as they will install malware and viruses will slow your PC right down
2) Dont install unecessary programs - only install prgrams you will use time and time again as others will install themselves in startup thus slowing down your startup times
3) You can install more RAM this will speed up the applications- ensure you get the right RAM for your motherboard and is installed by a professional
4) install a good free firewall and antivirus software like AVG or commodo to ensure you dont accumulate bad data

Hope this helps

Laptop runs very slow asus


FIXING A SLOW COMPUTER

A slow computer could be caused by a number of things -
1. Insufficient RAM (memory) - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to at least 1Gb of RAM.
2. Registry problems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys. Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc.
3. Uninstall/remove unused programs, this will also free up hard disk space.
4. Not enough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn't been configured to manage it.
5. Install latest Windows updates.
6. Update virus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc.
7. Clear the Internet cache for faster browsing.
8. Hard disk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioning efficiently.
Run the following programs -
Disk Cleanup - removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard disk space.
Disk Defragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and therefore the hard disk access is faster.

My laptop is hanging and slow when it comes to use the internet.should i reformat it?


before reformatting, follow these
Clean Windows Registry: The registry of the Windows contains immense information. It shall be cleaned all the time and it is the most effective way to boost computer speed in an easy way.
Defragment your PC to increase computer speed: Press Start button > then Programs > Click Accessories > Press System Tools > And Disk Defragmenter.
This feature will take some time but it will compact large data into smaller pieces creating a lot of free space for the computer to run faster. You can delete unnecessary files from your computer prior to performing disk defragmentation.
Add more RAM to Speed up your computer: If you are running a lot of programs and the capacity of your RAM is short. This will surely help you to make computer run faster with Windows 7 or Vista in seconds. Fortunately it does not take much time. Make it sure that you place it the right way.
Clear Cache, history and temporary internet files: Another way which I assume is a 'best way to speed up my computer' is to clear the cache, history and temporary internet files. Removing junk files frees up a lot of space required to make computers run faster.
Turn off unnecessary programs from start up: A lot of computer users complain that their Windows 7 or Vista does not boot faster. I would recommend to such people to have a shorter start up items list.
Have low intensity graphics If you are not an ardent gaming user then you can afford to run computer faster with low intensity graphics.
Uninstall unused software and programs: It is very common that people install a number of computer programs and then stop using them. These unused programs shall be removed to increase the computer speed.
The above guidelines were really helpful to speed up my computer. These are safe and do impact computer performance in a positive way.
Frustrated of the dead slow speed of your computer? Do you wish to speed up computer in seconds? Please remember to clean Windows registry with Intel Software Partner, RegInOut BY. After this scan you will feel how much faster is your computer running.

What RAM for Acer Aspire 5613AWLMI 533 or 677Mhz?


http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Aspire%205610

That being said, I'll make the following comments that will hopefully answer your questions.

The maximum memory for your computer is 4 GB. However, if you are using a 32-bit operating system only 3.7 will be available for the system to use minus however much else you are sharing for the video.

Using 667 memory won't make your processor run any faster; the 533 MHz FSB is set in the processor and using 667 memory won't make the memory run any faster either; it will only run at 533. If you do get just 1 2 GB chip to make 2.5 GB total, make sure it is the same speed as the other chip. Usually it's not an issue but sometimes it can be.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
