My laptop core i3 works very slowly even when i open any program it open very late but it close its self


first - you described error, that is good, what is bad: what computer and what operating system? telepathy do not work that hot as it is advertised in hollywood movies...

will give you just bit of generic advice, i assume your operating system is windows of any flavour.

1. update your operating system and reboot as requested
2. update your antivirus and run it at full scan
3. switch off computer and leave it for 20sec.
4. start computer in safe mode with network connection (tap continuously f8 about every 2sec during computer startup, then select safe mode with network
5. this will load os only with basic drivers, run your antivirus scan again - full scan
6. go to https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download and download free version of the software and install it (do not install junk adverts or anything else what comes with it - just softgware) - sometime ccleaner will not install in safe mode, remember where you download it, reboot computer, install ccleaner, follow step 3 and 4
7. run ccleaner in safe mode and remove all junk from your computer
8. go to "tools" in ccleaner and uninstall all software which you did not used in last year, including all toolbars, ebays, facebook and similar cr@p.
9. in "tools" select "startup" - disable everything what is there - especially toolbars and all your "beloved" skype, facebook and whatever else you rubbish your computer with (you computer and turning can use it still - but it will not automatically load on startup - clogging your computer and frustrating the system)
10. still in ccleaner select "registry", remove tick from line "unused file extensions" and run "scan for issues" - press "fix selected issues" after run and save first load when requested, run scan again, but do not save more results, repeat that till you will have "no issues were found".
11. close ccleaner
12. reboot your computer and enjoy it

never, ever install any toolbars,
never ever allow any programs not necessary to run computer to run on start-up!

hope this little article will help you speed up your machine, if any questions - ask, do not forget to vote...

Hi, Restore your computer to the last restore point before it froze using system restore. This should reset the computer where everything was working properly. Hard shut downs can corrupt files and drivers. Also do a full virus scan to make sure your system is clean.

I keep getting a pop up saying my computer is running low on memory and I need to close programs and files I am not using but I don't know what files or programs are even open?? how can I see what is open...


If you hold down CTRL + A:LT + Delete you should get to your processes. Even thought you are not seeing programs running they are running in the background. You may need to install more memory or increase pagefile size.

My computer is very slow, sometimes freezes or won't load and will not shut down


If your laptop computer won't shut itself down even after you select the "Shut Down" option from your "Start" menu, this means that too many programs are still open on your computer. Before Windows can shut down, it needs to manually close all open software, and having too many programs open can severely delay this process or cause Windows to lock up. Closing these programs will help your machine shut down as normal.
b> Right-click on your task bar. Click "Show Windows Stacked." This will maximize all of the program windows for all open programs on your desktop. The windows will be stacked one on top of the other on-screen. Click the "X" box in the corner of the first window to close that particular program. This will reveal the next program window in the stack. Continue to close these programs until you see your desktop wallpaper again. This, coupled with the fact that your task bar should now be cleared of all program icons, indicates that you have successfully closed all program windows. Your laptop will now shut down normally.
Press windows button and in the search type msconfig go to startup tab and uncheck those you dont want to start. scroll to the bottom toolbar bottom of screen right click you can select task manager applications also processes you will see whats running on your computer and ticking over you might have a virus http://www.majorgeeks.com/Microsoft_Security_Essentials_for_Windows_d6242.html microsoft security essentials your operating system must be registered Win7/Vista/XP 64 bit http://majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=4281&file=1&evp=dbb3b0aebe6a6a4ff18089a6489a5e62 anti malware free edition Win XP/2003/Vista/Windows7 if you see something running that you does not need to be running select end now then you might you might uninstall that particular program and some unnecessary programs you should also check leads from motherboard to hard drive for secure dust free connections click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start tick in both boxes this will schedule to on restart do not have any input while chkdsk utility is in progress any might damage your computer also you might download and use this registry cleaner it is totally free to use http://download.cnet.com/ccleaner/ then defragment your hard drive adding more ram is the best way of speeding up a computer If youre not sure if a module is right for your system use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules

The computer hiberates when I close the lid, then I have to shutdown & restart to resume working. Can I avoid this somehow?


  1. right click your desktop and select properties
  2. select the screen saver tab
  3. at the bottom click the "power" option
  4. deselect the option for hibernation
  5. make sure your hdd is NOT set to turn off when the lid is closed


you can actually set the laptop up to continue running even programs when the lid is closed. this is the best option if you are constantly running application that require an extended wait period between startup and shut-down

Hi, this sounds like a bad hard drive. Some computer repair shops might be able to get into the drive and save some of your files. However you probably will need to replace the hard drive. Good Luck...
