You probably have contracted a virus or some shareware. Download free AVG and do a scan. If you have certain norton / symantec products I have known these to slow down things. You could try it in safe mode and see if the speed there is more normal. Check all your drivers and update them.

please rate my assistance - I hope this is useful.

My COMPAQ Presario Model 5000US continues to run slow


Kitty:
Judging by the mod. # of this unit, I'd say it was high time to either replace entire machine, or at the very least - put the restore/recovery disc that came with the machine and reload it.
Good luck,

Kicks off dial-up after 5 minutes-dial-up shows still connected compaq presario sr111onx


This is normal. All users of dial up get kicked off randomly to make room on the service providers servers for other users to log on. In addition to it's extremely slow speed, this is the downside to dial up. I would suggest switching to DSL or Cable. It's a constant 'On' connection you cannot get kicked off of.

How to upgrade a new compaq presario SR2150NX?


Add more RAM, 512MB ram will slow your computer down because when you run out of ram the computer uses the hard drive as vitrual ram. I have 4GB in my Vista machine and it is faster than XP.

Another suggestion is to turn off the hard drives indexing. Right click on your "C" drive and unhook the "index this drive for faster searching" box.

Slow moving computer


Yes, If you have no problem losing your data. If you care about your data I would install a good antivirus program if you are not using one . If you are using one make sure it is updated and perform a full system scan. Also if you have the newst version of Internet Explorer clear out your temporary internet files & cookies.
