Delete any unnecessary files and programs from your system, clear cache and cookies from your system, click start all programs, accessories, system tools, disc clean up select c: then select anything on the list of files to be cleaned that has value in MB/GB on the right side then hit clean up or ok to begin the process then you can also do a disc defragmentation same way you got into disc clean up but instead of choosing disc clean up select disc defragmentation then click defragment to defrag your Hard drive on the system .... also check for any start up items this can also cause processess to slow down on the system uninstall them or disable them in msconfig under startup items

There are many things you can do to speed up your laptop:
1. Try going to the control panel add/remove programs (or a variation thereof depending on your operating system) and removing programs that you dont use anymore.
2.If you have more than one hard drive (as in when you click my computer you have a C drive and possibly a D drive move any documents or large files over to the D drive.)
3.To speed up start up try clicking the start button and going to run, typing msconfig, and then clicking the startup tab. Uncheck anything that you know you dont need at startup i.e(microsoft office and things like that )

Here is an article with more steps for things you can do.

Sorry my Fujitsu will not run on high speed.


Is this a laptop or a scanner? If a laptop check that you have other processes running on your system that potentially slow down the PC. Check the processes for high CPU and either stop those processes, or cancel unwanted startup processes in your MSconfig.exe program, assuming you are running windows OS.

How to clean up start up processes


Questions about optimize start up:
How to remove program from start up?
My computer boots very slow? How do I clean up start up processes?
Windows startup very slow, how to fix it?

Why clean up start up processes?
Windows Startup program will load the default programs or processes you add to your computer. The test result shows a new system only boot within 30 seconds. As you install antivirus program or other applications, it becomes very slow. Sometimes, the startup gets bloated not due to your computer behaviors. Malicious software is prone to add useless processes on startup without your known. You are not aware that your computer becomes more and more slow until serious computer problem occurs. Don’t ignore a slow start up, it is the root of Blue Screen and computer freezing.

How to clean up start up processes?
The first thing you should do is to remove spyware or adware from your computer. I prefer to AVG, it is a free anti-virus program. If you want to clean virus completely, you need boot in safe mode and disconnect your Internet.

Hok is a professor with over ten year’s computer experience. He suggest us use ErrorFix. This is a pc optimize tool which can clean up system registry entries, useless program, start up processes and junk files. With this program, your computer will be obviously improved. Just a few clicks, you can remove processes that slow your computer.

What’s more to speed up your computer?
Do not download Peer-to-Peer Download Software! Maybe you are using some software such like YouTube Downloader. These are probably some of the least likely contenders for system-slowdown but they are popular on the internet. Those kinds of program can take up memory space and damage your computer. Also they can automatically add itself as your start up.

How do I control fan speed?


Keeping the fans clean is especially important, because the fans blow out hot air and bring in fresh air to cool down the laptop.


Fans attract dust, however, which can slow them down, resulting in a hot laptop.

If the laptop overheats, vital parts can cease functioning altogether.


Consequently, keeping your laptop's fans clean is crucial.



The fan speed on a laptop can determine how it operates consistently and reliably.

You can slow it down or speed it up, based on the circumstances.


For instance, slowing down the fan speed may be useful in reserving processes or during a prolonged slow time.


Speeding it up is beneficial in keeping the laptop cool during ongoing use or high-traffic times. For the long term, find a happy medium for regular use, so you won't "psyche" out your computer by constantly adjusting the settings.


Click on the Start menu and select "Control Panel." Next, choose "Performance and Maintenance."


Select "Power Saver."


To slow the fan speed, locate the slider next to "CPU Processing Speed" and slide it down by moving across to the left.


To speed up the fan, move the slider to the right.


Press "Apply" and then "OK," if prompted.


Hope this helps

I have low memory and my laptop is slow


Toshiba laptops are not intrinsically slow computers and more often than not a slow computer is caused by a software rather than a hardware problem. Computers get bogged down by running too many processes at once, having the information in the hard drive stored in different parts of the disk (fragmented) and computer virus, worm or spy ware infestations. Of course, sometimes a computer simply doesn't have the hardware to run certain programs or will have a hardware issue that needs to be fixed.

Disk Cleanup

1.Click "Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Cleanup" to open the Disk Cleanup program.

2.Select the hard drive that you want to clean up if you have more than one hard drive and then click "Ok" to get started.

3.Wait for the Disk Cleanup tool to calculate how much space it will be able to save by compressing your files. Compressing the files in your hard drive will open up space that in turn helps your computer access information faster.

4.Click the "More Options" tab on the "Disk Cleanup" window that appears and then click the "Clean Up" button within the "Windows Components" section. This will allow you to select what Windows Components you want to disable. Disabling Windows Components will make your computer software by diminishing the programs that are running.

5.Click the "Clean Up" button within the "Installed Programs" section. This will allow you to select what computer programs you no longer wish to have installed on your computer and uninstall them. Uninstall programs that have not been used in a long time such as old video games to speed up your Toshiba laptop.

6.Click the "Clean Up" button with the "System Restore" section. This will delete all but the most recent of your backup files so that you don't have useless backup files taking up space and slowing down your laptop computer.

7.Click the "Disk Cleanup" tab and then select all the files from the "Files to Delete" section that you want to delete. This will delete all those files from your computer making your computer faster by freeing up memory space. Click "Ok" to delete the files and exit Disk Cleanup.

Fan

1.Blow pressurized air from a pressurized air can into the Fan slits on the bottom and side of the Toshiba laptop to clear it of dust. A dusty, dirty fan will cause speed issues on your Toshiba laptop.

2.Power off the computer, remove the battery and all external devices and then unscrew all the screws that have a keyboard picture on it.

3.Remove the keyboard from your Toshiba laptop and on the inner, upper, left hand corner, on the side of the monitor, you'll see the fan.

4.Blow pressurized air into the fan to clear the dust and then replace the keyboard, screws, battery, external devices and power the computer back on.

Processes

1.Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys on your Toshiba laptop keyboard simultaneously and then select "Start Task Manager."

2.Click the "Processes" tab and take inventory of all the processes running on your computer.

3.Right-click on each process with your Username to the right of the process name and then select "End Process." Do not end processes that are vital to your computer running properly such as explore.exe or processes that don't have your username to the right of the process name.

4.Restart your computer if you end a vital process.

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.

My acer aspire 5720-4126 laptop computer is very slow in booting after i had it reformatted. when using it, the system sometimes hangs and after a few seconds it recovers again. and sometimes it suddenly...


The most common reason for slow processing speed is insufficient RAM memory.

Increase the RAM, if RAM available is no more than 512MB, then it must be upgraded.

Check also your hard drive state. If you have less than 1GB free, that will slow down the system. Go to Start>>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defregmenter and do a Defrag of the hard disk.

If you have at least 1 GB RAM, and you took care of the hard drive, then you can check the process starting up on their own and remove the useless one, or spot mala-ware that can affect speed. You can use a software like Hijack This, and search on google te function of each process started on the list reported by the software.

You can download Hijack this here MajorGeeks | If download does not start, then click at the top of the page, where it says Click Here If It Does Not.
Be careful if you delete the wrong files using this software you can harm the system, and Windows may not work properly.

If you think you have malaware you can also install Spy Bot, and do a system scan. Download Spybot from The home of Spybot.

If all the above does not work, and there is no malaware, then you usually reinstall the system.

Check also the bios settings, BIOS can downgrade the CPU speed on default , even if this is uncommon on recent BIOS.

If a computer is still slow with a fresh system and enough resources then it is one of those rare occasions when you have an hardware fault.
Hardware that can cause slow down is: RAM CPU Motherboard HD Video card.

Some tips on procedure can damage your windows installation. Do not download Hijackthis software and do not change BIOS settings and do not touch hardware unless you are sure of what you are doing.

Slow booting process, "twitchy" mouse movement


Do you have an anti-spyware program on your machine? There are many free programs out there. This might speed up your machine a bit.
