Hi jayvee024,

Thanks for asking me to be your Tech Buddy.

Download speed of course is a function of your connection speed.

Additionally, you can try using a Download Manager such as FlashGet.

Incidentally, you can try tweaking your OS and Connection Settings to improve the overall performance of your PC. Doing so would automatically improve also certain portions of your connection speed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Running slow


To increase internet speed
* Check to see if faster internet connections are in your area:
Fiber optic and cable internet tend to be faster than DSL and dial-Up.
*Do some basic maintenance on your PC:
a scan disk, a virus scan, a malware scan, and clear your recycle bin.Delete old files and temporary files.
* Reset Your Modem
Sometimes switching OFF and ON your modem helps you to speed the internet.
* Optimize your cache or temporary Internet files.
These files improve your Internet connection performance by not downloading the same file over and over.* Replace your old cable modem
* Upgrade your router firmware
* Upgrade your computer.
* Try pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete simultaneously and open up the Task Manager. Go to the process menu and close those processes that may be stealing your valuable bandwidth.
* Download programs that make browsing faster:
A good tool to increase internet speed is Internet Cyclone.
Loband.org is a browser inside of a browser that loads web pages without the images.
Firefox and Opera both have options to disable images.

After you have tried some of this,try your connection again using Scanmyspeed.com and see if you get improved speed results. If you are not satisfied Call your Internet service provider (ISP) and check whether upgradation of your plan is necessary.

How do i increase internet speed for my compaq presario cq57-339wm notebook pc


What sort of internet do you have ?


The speed of an internet connection is designated by your ISP internet service provider contract if you are having problems with slow internet contact them about upgrading your contract.


Hard wired ethernet is much faster than wireless

When your ISP offers you a 1Mb connection, its megaBits not MegaBytes.

So for a rough guide of how MUCH you can download, divide by eight. i.e. 1Mb speed = 128KB of data.

So its normal for you to get 1.0-1.10 mbps download speed for the 10MBps connection that

you have


http://download.cnet.com/getgo-download-manager/3000-2071_4-10277023.html

Download all of your favorite videos, programs, games, and music with acceleration.


http://download.cnet.com/cnet-bandwidth-meter/3000-12565_4-10728035.html


The CNET Bandwidth Meter tests the speed of your Internet connection against top DSL Cable modem, and other broadband services. To check your bandwidth, simply click on the download link.


you might have to many programs trying to or accessing your computer or the internet at the same time or a virus

scroll to bottom toolbar (bottom of screen) right click select task manager


applications you will see whats running

if you see anything you dont need running select end now and you might uninstall that specific


program if you or computer does not require it to run and

some unnecessary programs that could be jamming up your computer


also under processes see what is ticking over in the background again if you see something you

dont need to be running select end now and users you will see who is using your computer

http://www.majorgeeks.com/Microsoft_Security_Essentials_for_Windows_d6242.html

microsoft security essentials your operating system must be registered

Win7/Vista/XP 64 bit

http://majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=4281&file=1&evp=dbb3b0aebe6a6a4ff18089a6489a5e62 anti malware free edition Win XP/2003/Vista/Windows7


you might need to add more computer ram

if you're not sure if a module is right for your system use the


Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.

when purchasing any ram you should always ask if they can guarantee compatibility first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line


from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system

hope this helps

HOW I INCREASE DOWNLOADING SPEED BY 10MBPS


Contact your Internet Service Provider, and give them more money per month, and you'll get faster downloads.

Of course, this assumes that the file-server from which you are downloading is capable of sending as fast as you want to receive -- some servers are "busy", or deliberately are "capped", to limit the speed per connection to the server.

Hi,

There are couple of troubleshootig steps which needs to be performed inorder to help get a web page load faster.

Go to Tools/options/ and delete the history, cached pages, cookies, password etc. Might want to ignore favourites.

Also type temp in run command line and then delete the files from the folder. This helps to increase the processing speed as well as the browsing speed of the accer.

This works with IE 6/7/8 though.

Thanks
