BIOS clean up


You dont clean the Bios, you can reset it to the defaults or you can usually update it, but thats not recommended unless it needs a critical update, so many people have tried it with bad results, like the pc not starting up after an update, but it is highly unlikely that anything has changed in there so I would leave it and concentrate on the actual computer hard drive.

You can clean you hard drive if you right click on the C: drive icon in My Computer. Then click on Properties, then click Disk Cleanup. There is also on option to clean all but the latest restore point, that saves a lot of hard drive space.

You can also defragment your hard drive which sorts all the files out so that when a file is accessed it finds all of it at once, instead of finding fragments and putting them all together. Files are not usually stored all in one but are spread around the drive, taking longer to find the fragmented bits. It also consolidates all the free space for faster writing to the drive.

You can also go in to MSCONFIG and click the Startup tab and see what programs are running. Anything in there automatically starts running as soon as Windows starts. You can dissable the ones that you know don't need to be running. Not things like Antivirus, Firewall or anything to do with Internet though.

Go to the start menu and type msconfig in the search / run box and press Enter. When you have unticked the ones you dont want running restart the computer.

You will probably get a box pop up when you have restarted saying that you have been in to the configuration settings etc. Just tick the little box on the left that says Don't show this again or whatever it says.

You could also uninstall any programs that you don't actually use.
Go to the Control panel and click on Add and Remove Programs for Windows XP, or Programs and Features in Windows 7.

If it's just got slow gradually,cleaning up usually helps a bit.

If you just want it to be a bit faster then maybe it can have more Ram fitted on the motherboard, that helps, also upgrading the processor, and a faster hard drive will help.

You can also use a little program called CCleaner whhich searches the hard drive for all the rubbish left over from uninstalled programs, unused files, temporary files that are no longer needed etc. It's a free program and very popular.

You can also clean the registry which gets rid of a lot of rubbish left in there. There is an option in CCleaner whhich will do that.

Hope this helps.

My computer is hanging due to virus


You meant you are not using any anvirus or security programs? If you don't wish to spend money try Avast free edition, valid for one month. But you can clean up your system from the infection. You can also install AVG Free which has no validity limit. After scanning your system and clearing up all infections, I suggest you download CCleaner (freeware). Clean your system and registry of all temporary and unwanted files by running CCleaner. The link is here http://www.piriform.com/ Your system will perform better and run faster after the cleanup.

Hard drive interface


Hi nortocd

(01) It will work in your USB hard disk enclosure if the enclosure supports SATA. If the enclosure supports the older style (ATA/EIDE) interface, then you'll just need to get an enclosure that supports SATA for your new hard disk. I like the Nextar external HDD (hard disk drive) enclosures.

You can find many external HDD enclosures made by various manufacturers these days. They're available for 3.5" (laptop-sized) and 5.25" (desktop PC-sized) HDDs supporting ATA/EIDE, SATA and SCSI HDDs and even Optical drives (DVD, etc.) Newegg is a great online source for computer & high tech-related equipment. They're prices are very competitive and their customer service is excellent. You can also find customer reviews of most of the products they sell, too, which can be very helpful.

(02) If you'd like this HDD to be portable, then I recommend you use an external HDD enclosure. They are available w/ USB and w/ eSATA connections (for connecting externally to your computer(s)). I don't recommend using IEEE1394 (firewire) as USB 2.0 is faster. eSATA is faster than USB 2.0 but is not a commonly available external connection on most computers yet.

(03) If a SATA port (connection) is not available inside your computer, you can install a SATA controller (if an expansion card slot is available in your computer) and connect your new HDD to the new controller.

(04) You can find information regarding your Compaq Presario HERE.

(05) I checked your motherboard specifications HERE. Your computer's original equipment does not support SATA. However, if you'd still like the HDD to be installed internally, just install a SATA controller and connect the new HDD to the SATA controller.

Changin ip address


you can change your ip adress, but that will not stop the criminals. most likely you get your ip dynamicly. The system will tell your computer what the ip is. best bet, do not mess with the ip, will save you the pain in the future.

my advice, get better security. Get a firewall, there are free ones on the internet. Don't trust the microsoft firewall, not that good.

If you have broadband, get a router. There are nice routers with some good software firewalls installed, but you don't need to spend the money for those. Any good basic router will provide a basic firewall protection.

Get a router, and install a firewall on your computer.

stay away from norton, I don't like there products, slow down your system too much.

zone alarm is good.

If you computer got hacked, most likely you caused it. You could have a trojan on your computer. Make sure you get a virus scanner. I use AVG.

How to upgrade a new compaq presario SR2150NX?


Add more RAM, 512MB ram will slow your computer down because when you run out of ram the computer uses the hard drive as vitrual ram. I have 4GB in my Vista machine and it is faster than XP.

Another suggestion is to turn off the hard drives indexing. Right click on your "C" drive and unhook the "index this drive for faster searching" box.
