Extremely slow running


Slow computer If you have a virus program installed, it is most likely is running a scan on your hard disk. It can slow down your computer especially if you have a large hard drive. After scanning is completed then the computer will be faster.
To make your computer (hard disk) lean and mean, uninstall any programs you do not use.
Also you need to maintain your hard disk by running Disk Cleanup this will remove old temp files and old compressed files etc.
This will reduce the number of files the virus scanner has to scan. Plus running Defrag. this makes your files contiguous so the system can access files off the hard drive quicker because it does not work as hard.. Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out at least once a month.
If you have 512Mb of RAM installed then installing more RAM will speed up your computer. After installing your graphics card, you may need to disable the built-in graphics card in the BIOS for the new graphics card to work properly.

How to make a step product of desktop computer


If you wish to make your PC faster there are a few things you can do.

1. You can upgrade your CPU if Possible.
2. Upgrade your Ram if Possible.
3. Defragment your Hard Drive.
4. If you are using an internet security suite such as Norton 360 you can even defragment your Windows registry.

If you want a step by step on how to build your own PC it is a long process but a rewarding one if you follow all the right procedures and follow some basic rules. It would take far too long to type and I would run out of characters before I finished so I will include a website that I have had friend use to help them build there own PC's when I have not been available to show them and they where all successful at building there own desktop PC's the link is below :

http://www.waterwheel.com/Build_A_PC/build_PC.htm

Other than this I am not completely sure what you mean by a step product as I know it to be a step up product which is an upgrade using an existing case or also known as a reskin. I hope this helps

How do I format my desktop PC that is having problem starting? I have backups, so just need to reformat to get a clean system.


First make sure you have the drivers for your motherboard, and a operating system before you format you hard drive.

1)When you format a computer hard drive you will lose everything that is on the drive. Therefore, it is very important to back up anything you might want later. Additionally, if you are going to be formatting and installing XP you need to make sure you have the discs for any applications or third party hardware you use since you will need to re-install your programs and drivers after re-installing Windows.

2)Take a moment to think of anything that you have on the computer that you wouldn't want to lose. Generally, you probably want everything in your My Documents folder, and you also want to save things like your favorites or bookmarks from your Web browser. Remember that each user on the computer has his or her own My Documents folder, Desktop items and Favorites/Bookmarks.

  1. Formatting and Installing from the Windows XP CD
  2. Step 1 This section explains how to reformat a drive from the Windows XP installation CD. This can be used when installing a fresh copy of Windows onto a computer. Here it is especially important to backup all of your important information because upon formatting you will lose EVERYTHING that used to be on the drive. This includes all applications and device drivers, so you must back up everything you can.
  3. Step 2 Insert your Windows XP installation disc into your CD drive (Home or Pro--it does not matter).
  4. Step 3 Now as you computer boots a little more it will say “Press any key to boot from CD..” press a key to do so.
  5. Step 4 The CD will load up a blue screen and then spend a while loading files it needs. When it is finished it will list a few options, mainly “Press ENTER to set up Windows XP.” Press Enter or Return.
  6. Step 5 Now you will be at a screen to select where to install Windows to. This is where you can delete old partitions and format drives. The box in the bottom half of the screen shows all your drives and the partitions that exist on them. Use the Up and Down arrow keys to highlight your “C:” partition and press the 'D' key (if all that shows up is “Unpartitioned space” and you have no C: or D: partitions, skip this step). On the next screen press the 'L' key to finalize deleting the partition.
  7. Step 6 Now you are back on the screen to choose where to install Windows. The box on the lower half of the screen should no longer show a partition but simply have an entry “Unpartitioned space xxxxxMB.” Select this with the arrow keys and press the 'C' key to create a partition on the drive. The next screen tells you the minimum and maximum sizes the partition can be and lets you pick the size. The default size is the maximum, but double check that the number entered is the maximum and hit enter.
  8. Step 7 Now you will again be back at the choose where to install Windows screen. But this time you will have a partition that looks something like this “C: Partition1 [New (Raw)]xxxxxxMB.” Highlight this entry and press enter.
  9. Step 8 The next screen lets you choose which file system to format the drive with. Choose NTFS as it is faster and more secure. If the drive is brand new and has never been used before then use one of the options that ends in “(Quick).” Or, choose one of the lower down options. Use the arrow keys to select the proper one and press Enter or Return.
  10. Step 9 From here you are all set and the installation of Windows will proceed starting with a format of your drive. This will take a while (over half an hour) so you can take a little break.
