Hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and see if you have an erratic CPU usage.. (Bouncing up and down w/out doing anything).. Sounds like Spyware to me.. Go to Lavasoft and download Adaware personal and scan the machine... Its a good free utility to use..

Also if you have Norton or Mcafee I'd dump and run AVG free.. (Other 2 are utility hogs)..

What make and model Laptop also?

You Have Several Options.
First I would suggest Simple Fixes. Run The Windows Based Program. Disc Cleanup. And Defragmenter. ( Start/All Programs/Accesories/System Tools )
This Will tidy up Your Hard-Drive.
Then See The Amount Of Memory ( Ram ) Thats In Your System, And Wether It,s Upgradable.
Also remove any unused Hardware Devices ( Such as USB items) These can be a power-Drain On The System.

Coputer slow and shuts down

Please check the air inlet, air outlet and the fan. If it is dirty, then you can clean it up using canned air.
If later the computer runs slow (but it does not shutdown), then you can use Norton Utility to fix the operating system. The download link:

My acer aspire v5 laptop running to slow

The only solution is to run a factory default recovery, but you could also try installing Mozilla Firefox and see if that helps.

When switched on the pc makes a loud noise for about 1minutes before complete loading and the pc scrolls up and downwards all by it self also generally slows down

Apparently your system seems to have a large boot load, Therefore you can perform a start-up check by MS config. Please follow the steps below:
Open start menu then click Run.
In Run windows type Msconfig and then press enter.
You will see a window opened with different Tabs in front of you .
Go to the Tab Start-up.
Then click disable all or UN-check all option.
After that your system will prompt you to apply changes and restart your PC.
Go ahead and accept that option and you will see a drastic change in your Start-up. Thanks

Can you help me to speed my internet access and my laptop is 2 days old i cant open my skype my laptop is hp compaq 610

Internet speed is dependent on the provider. If you have DSL and there are several people or computers using the Internet, it will be slow.
Your HP610 has enough processing power and LAN speed to get online fast.
If you have had this laptop two days, was it always slow? Or did it become slow?
If it became slow, go to and scan your laptop for malware. If you do not have a malware prevention program on the laptop, it will get trojans which will slow it down to a crawl.
You can see the various products to prevent this here.
