How do I reinstall IDE?


The only time I have problems as you you describe it's because the movie isn't streaming fast enough to maintain a steady viewing experience - nothing to do with your drive interface.

To reinstall the IDE controller, go into Device Manager (right click my computer and select properties). You should see IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. Click on the little + sign and you'll see a list of controllers. Right click each in turn and uninstall. When you've done that, restart the pc and it'll reinstall them automatically.

Compaq Presario V2000 runs very slow!


First thing you should do is run some free virus and malware scanning programs.

Get and run Combofix

Then get and run Malwarebytes Anti-malware

Get CCleaner to clean up your computer a bit.

Then put Avira Antivirus on it. This will slow the computer down a little but will keep future viruses off of it.

How to speed up a very very very slow computer in XP?


First of all if you have Symantec Norton Antivirus Products or McAfee Antivirus Products remove them. They are core hogs and will slow your system down. Replace them with a simple and smooth FREE Antivirus such as AVG, AVAST or Microsoft Security Essentials. Secondly if you have anything on your system from AOL remove it. It too eats up resources. You might have a virus that is slowing you down also so after you install the FREE antivirus program run a scan. You'll be amazed at what the antivirus you pay for missed. Download and Install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan. After you've done all the above Open My Computer and Right Click on your C: Local drive and select Properties, then Tools, then Defrag Now. When the Disk Defragmenter opens click on Analyze and it will tell you when it finishes if you need to Defrag the hard drive. If you need to Defrag the drive click Defragment. This will take more than an hour to run so be patient.

Computer fires up but screen blank


Try resetting your BIOS.
This can be done, by removing the battery. Then after about 1 minute put it back in.
I've you still have a blank screen, contact the manufacturer.

Acer Aspire 3050 Laptop running slow Changed Hard drive, Memory, and the motherboard It still run's slow, vista basic 2 X 512 pc2 533 could it be the power board? any one had this before? Thanks..


1st go through your 'programs and features' in your control panel and delete anything over around 100Mb unless it is necessary, a lot of ram is taken up by these programs even when they are not being run.

I have a acer aspire 5515 and all of a sudden it is running very poorly and slow


I am assuming that you are running windows on this machine.

The problem could be spam ware or registry errors. I would try these steps and see if it helps to speed it back up.

First Back up your data!

Next check your antivirus software to make sure it is updated and scan the machine completely.

I would then try downloading some spam ware remover software from Adaware or spybot. A lot of times when I have computers that are running slow at work scan them and find a lot of hidden spam ware that accumulates from the internet Removing this spam ware will make it run faster.

I would also recommend, after running the spam ware removal software, and anti virus software, running CCleaner from http://www.ccleaner.com/ it is free and will scan your registry for errors due to installations and installations that have taken place over the years.

Also you may need to run the defragmenter from CCleaners web site as well. I find it works better than the included one in windows.

I you do this and it does not help you can try backing up your data and reinstalling windows from your recovery disks. If you do a fresh install and it is still slow you will have to look at sending in your laptop for repair.

I hope these steps help.

Stupid ly slow


Try and untick your start up programs. This can be done by click on start, run, type in msconfig, click on startup tab, and untick all except your virus checker.

If this does not work try and get a free registry scan programm via www.eusing.com. This programme will scan all your registry and after the scan you will be asked if you want the registry clean. Click yes.

Also try and defragment the hard disk.

The combination of the above should help your laptop work faster.
