A new laptop is already going almost as fast as is possible when it is new. RETURN IT FOR A REFUND, AND BUY A DIFFERENT ONE!!!
You can try this, but I doubt that it will help if it is an out of the box new machine.
First, download AVG antivirus at file:///C:/Users/Owner/Desktop/AVG%20Free%20-%20Antivirus%20Download%20Best%20Virus%20Protection.URL
then reboot yor machine whil holding the F8 key as it boots back up. A menu will apear. Choose -->"start windows in safe mode with networking".
The os will start in safe mode. run an AVG virus scan, then run Defrag by exploring your computer, right click on C: drive, click PROPERTIES, then the TOOLS tab, click the "check now" button, and only checkmark the top box 'fix file system errors', then click ok, the computer will then tell you it will scan upon next reboot., Now click the DEFRAG NOW button. the choose defrag. After Defrag runs for about an hour and it is finished, restart the system. If is still won't run normally, go back into Safemode buy pressing F8 on reboot, then run a registry fixing program such as uniblue registrybooster, then reboot again. If it still won't run right, you may want to reinstall Windows and see if that works. If reinstalling windows doesn't fix it, it is definitely a hardware problem. You could upgrade the amount of RAM, If you have the minimum, more RAM may help quite a bit.
Good luck.
PLEASE RATE THIS ADVICE WITH SOME THUMBS UP!!!

For hardware solution, add more ram. If you are looking for software solution, reinstall operating system and install software only those, you really need.

Recently I have purchase a Toshiba Satellite L650 I5311 laptop, its interl core I3 - 350 M processor, 2.40 Ghz, 3mb L2 Cache, 320 GB SATA, 4GB DDR3 RAM, onboard graphics, the problem is the system is...


Only things that i can think of is that Norton anti virus has been known to be a bit of a system hog, so maybe search for an alternative, otherwise you may have a 32bit version of windows installed, getting a 64 bit version installed might see some increased performance, but otherwise make sure you have limited programs at startup, the more programs you have starting at startup will fill up your RAM and in turn slow down file swappage because the RAM is full

The only thing that is really a let down with your new laptop is the onboard graphics card, but that shouldn't be effecting file swappage, only effecting graphical programs.

however it could be because your running a Video/Webcast as well as a couple of other documents your graphics card might not be able to handle it, sadly you can't upgrade a graphics card in a laptop.

hope this has helped

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 Malwarebytes.org 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.
