Web page performance is a measure of the response load time of a web page. The slower a page loads, the higher the page's visitor bounce rate will be. There are quite a few free tools available on the market designed to conduct diagnostic performance tests on web pages. These tests analyze a select page, based a set of rules that are proven to speed the load time. You can use a web-based performance analyzing tool. Or you can install tool add-ons to your Firefox web browser.

Open your computer's web browser and go to GTmetrix.com or http://www.pagespeed.googlelabs.com/ Enter the complete URL of the page you would like to measure in the provided field. Press "Enter" to get the results of your performance test. b> Using Page Speed Firefox Add-On b> Launch the Firefox web browser. Download and install the Page Speed add-on from the Google website. Download and install the Firebug add-on from the GetFireBug website. Enter the URL of the web page you would like to measure in the Firefox address bar. Click the Firebug icon located in the top right-side of the Firefox window, to open the Firebug window. Click the "Page Speed" button in the Firebug status bar. Click "Analyze Performance" to get the results of your performance test. b> Using YSlow Firefox Add-On b> Launch the Firefox web browser. Download and install the YSlow add-on from the Yahoo website. Download and install the Firebug add-on from the GetFireBug website. Enter the URL of the web page in the Firefox address bar. Click the Firebug icon located in the top right-side of the Firefox window, to open the Firebug window. Click the "YSlow" button in the Firebug status bar. Click "Run Test" to get the results of your performance test. Hope this helps.

Slow, stalls, freezes up


If your hard drive is too full, then your computer is going to perform slower. Delete old files which are not required.

Remove programs that you are no longer using. Delete temporary files.

Empty your recycle bin. Right click on Recycle Bin. Click Empty Recycle Bin>Yes.

Run an error check on your computer. The error check can remove errors that slow down your computer. If you are using Windows, you can do this by clicking Start>My Computer. Right click on your hard drive (typically c:) and then select Properties. Click the Tools tab>Check Now and then Start.

Clean up your registry. You can purchase software that will fix any registry errors on your computer.

Perform this computer maintenance on a weekly basis.

How can i find out how much memory, how fast my laptop runs, info on my dell inspiron b130?


right click on your computer and click properties.
in the page that opens you will see your computer details.
the speed is measured in GHz and memory in GBs or MBs.
usuall a memory of 1GB RAM and above is consider good.
speed varies according to your processor. for example a pentium 4 3GHz is slower thatn a core 2d duo processor with 2GHz.

My printer is printing slowly


Print speed can be affected by three important factors:
Available computer RAM
Available computer hard drive space
The HP All-in-One product paper sensor
Follow the steps below the ensure the computer is operating properly.

Step one: Verifying the amount of RAM
Verify the amount of RAM installed in the computer.
Determine the amount of memory currently in use by background programs or processes.
Programs/processes will run in the background even when no applications are running. Most of these programs/processes will be indicated by an icon in the lower right corner next to the time.
Less memory available for applications will result is slower processing time and consequently, printing speed.
To determine processes running in Windows 2000/XP , do the following:
Press Ctrl , Alt , and Delete simultaneously and then release.
From the Windows Security box, select Task Manager.
Click the Processes tab to view all running processes.
Click the Performance tab to view the total and available amount of memory.
To determine processes running in Windows 98 , do the following:
Open the Device Manager .
Click the Performance tab.
The available system resources will display as a percentage.
Turn off unnecessary background processes.
This will free up system resources and increase printing speed.
To turn off processes in Windows 98/ME/XP , do the following:
Click Start , Run , and type msconfig.
From the System Configuration Utility, click the Startup tab.
Determine what processes are unnecessary and remove the checkmark those items.

Step two: Verifying the amount of hard drive space
Follow the steps below to determine the amount of hard drive space on the main drive.
Open My Computer , right-click the C drive, and then click Properties .
This will display a chart along with the total hard drive space, used space, and available space.
Verify that there is at least 2-3 GB of hard drive space available.
The computer will require at least this amount to process printing data for simple text files, more for image files. The lower the amount of available hard drive space, will greater the time to process print data.
Step three: Ensuring the paper sensor is clean and not damaged
The all-in-one product paper sensor plays an important role in determining the print speed.
Printing a self-test or demo page will ensure that the paper sensor is in proper working condition. If the page completes in less than 40 seconds, the sensor is working correctly.
Even if the sensor is working correctly, the printer driver might need to have the paper sensor turned off. To turn off the sensor, follow the steps below:
Open the Printer folder, right-click the printer and click Printing Preferences or Properties.
From the Properties box, click thePaper/Quality or Features tab.
Under the Paper Type section, open the menu and select Plain Paper instead of Automatic.
This will disable the paper sensor and increase the print speed

My ATI Catalyst Control center Problem was first.


Your hard drive sounds like it's about to fail. MAKE BACKUPS NOW! I would start in safe mode and backup all my important files to an external source. Then I would run a chkdsk, here's how:
Double-click My Computer, and then right-click the hard disk that you want to check.
  1. Click Properties, and then click Tools.
  2. Under Error-checking, click Check Now. A dialog box that shows the Check disk options is displayed,
  3. Use the following procedures:
    • To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.
    Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message: The disk check could not be performed because the disk check utility needs exclusive access to some Windows files on the disk. These files can be accessed by restarting Windows. Do you want to schedule the disk check to occur the next time you restart the computer? Click Yes to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

When I am playing XENO Assault II, it crashes and says virtual Memory error, I have a 256MB ATI Radeon X1300 Pro video card, and 2 gigs of memory. I was thinking about upgrading my processor to a Intel®...


Virtual memory is actually part of a computer's physical memory that comes in the form of memory chips or RAMs. So what right? Well, it is a necessary evil and in order for your computer to run numerous programs simultaneously (at the same time), it looks for areas of RAM (Random Access Memory) that is not currently being used and it copies files over to what is called page files. This is simply a process that allows RAM to free up space and subsequently load new or additional applications. This process is technically called thrashing and the result of it can cause the computer to react somewhat slower in its functions. However, when the computer hard drive (virtual memory) which is slower than the installed memory chips wants to correct itself, it has to constantly swap between the RAM and the hard disk drive.
What Causes These Windows Out of Virtual Memory Error Messages?
  1. The first and foremost probability is that the Windows operating platform page file maximum file size - is too small. You may think your system has a large amount of virtual memory (RAM) because the person that sold you the computer told you so. Well, this may or may not be the actuality if page files are set too low and you are getting error messages. Obviously if you are getting an error message page files are being maxed out and something needs to be changed to correct the situation.
  2. There could have been a power failure or, you shut your computer off incorrectly which led to a file or files becoming corrupted and this subsequent virtual memory message beginning to haunt you. So the two lessons learned here is to have a back-up source of power and, to always get into the practice of properly shutting down Windows via the start button where it reads "Turn off computer" in lieu of simply hitting the power off button.
Okay, so now that you have an idea of what virtual memory is, system thrashing and how it suddenly became an irritant error message, what can be done to make things right in your Windows operating platform?
Realize that although Windows automatically sets both minimum (the amount of RAM installed on your PC + 300 MB) and maximum (3 times the amount of installed RAM) to its page file sizes if you do get that virtual memory error message - then you can do the following steps to increase these minimum and maximum page file sizes;
Re-Setting Windows 2000 virtual page file sizes
  1. Right-click My Computer , and than click Properties
  2. Within System Properties menu box, click Advanced
  3. Click Performance Options . Within this pane (Virtual Memory), click Change to increase the paging file. Take special note that your Windows 2000 minimal value requires at least 126 MB for debugging.
  4. After you change (increase) the setting, click Set, and than click OK to the following message you will receive;
  5. The changes you have made require you to restart your computer before they can take effect.
  6. Click OK to close the Performance Options menu, and than click OK to close the Systems Properties menu.
  7. When prompted to restart your computer, simply respond to Yes
Re-Setting Windows XP virtual page file sizes
  1. Click Start , right click My Computer, and than click Properties
  2. In the System Properties menu box, click the Advanced tab.
  3. In the Performance menu, click Settings
  4. In the Performance Options menu, click upon the Advanced tab.
  5. In the Virtual Memory menu, click Change
  6. Change the Initial and Maximum Value Sizes to a higher value, click Set and than click OK
  7. Click OK to close Performance Options menu, and finally OK to close the Systems Properties menu
Re-Setting Windows Vista virtual page file sizes .
  1. Click on the Start button, click Control Panel, click System and Maintenance, and then click System
  2. In the left pane, click Advanced system settings. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. On the Advanced menu, under Performance, click Settings
  4. Click the Advanced tab, and then, under Virtual memory menu, click Change
  5. Clear the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives check box.
  6. Under Drive [Volume Label] , click the drive that contains the paging file you want to change.
A CPU upgrade would be a good idea, the core 2 duo is a superb processor.
Also a bit more ram perhaps another gig or two? and maybe a 512mb graphics cards would be good for gaming.
perhaps a better power supply too as E520 was not really designed for gaming.

HP pavilion 515n runs real slow


Yes, you can add more - But if you have a fragmented HDD, it won't help much. Before you spend money on physical memory, I would do a disk defrag, check to make sure your HDD is not getting too full, and check your virtual memory. On xp you can get to this by right clicking MY COMPUTER, click properties, Performance, Paging file. XP has a problem during install of not setting this right. Change it to "system managed size", apply & ok, reboot your computer. If this doesn't help, and your HDD is not too full, stop some of the things that are loading up on startup.
