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.

Hi i have compaq presario c700 its too slow discr


If you have changed OS, your problem probably is not due to malware or bloat.
Upgraded to 2gb ram, new hard drive. And still you think it is too slow.
I think either you are too fussy, and expect too much OR your laptop has major problems at a chipset level.
Have you tried running some benchmark software to check if it really is running slow???

I would Do a fresh install of windows, SELL it and change to a different model.
Try checking a couple of reviews on sites like Custom PC, for a good fast laptop.

Presario laptop runs extremely slow. Have run


IF it is HP PC than you can simply go ahead a reload the factory settings in the OS from the Recovery partition without the help of the CDs. Every HP pc have a separate partition where the image of the entire OS is loaded. you can simply go ahead and reload it from that partition. Just follow the following steps-
1. Turn off of the pc completely.
2. Disconnect all the external devices and the internet connection.
3. As soon as you turn on the pc start tabbing the F11 key( for Windows Vista).
4. It will take you to the recovery manager and from there you can just follow the onscreen instructions.

My Compaq Presario 5000 series (year 2001) is running extremely slow. I was told to use the original disc and start it over again. I do not have one. Where can I get one?


what operating system have you got? You can load Windows XP clean on it and download drivers from hp.com . How much Ram have you got in the PC , maybe upgrade RAM?

Can Compaq Presario 1275 be upgraded to newer os?


The Compaq Presario 1275 meets the (bare) minimum requirements for Windows XP. It is not advisable, however, as it will run extremely slow and be more of an annoyance than anything. You would not be able to load Vista or Windows 7 on this machine.
