Compaq presario notebook v5000 windows XP slow start up

My laptop is very slow. It doesn't play video or music normally any more. it starts up slowly and the log on musical tune is all crackled sounding. it runs slowly and just overall sucks.
I've run spy bot, my anti virus.... disk clean up and de-frag.... system restore... no difference.
I've had this problem before and HP technical support had me uninstall and reinstall a driver or something.. but I don't remember how to do it and now my warranty is expired and they want me to pay for technical support. do you know the steps to fixing this problem???
PLEASE?

Need to know the polarity of the power input plug Is it center + or - Compaq presario v5000


Normally all laptops' center pin is positive and the outer cylindrical shaped metal area is negative. What is your purpose to know it? Playing with adapter may make your system dead. Be carful.

Make sure the driver for the notebook from the manufacturers website is installed, and not the video driver from Microsoft's Windows Update. After that, update Java, Adobe Flash and Adobe Shockwave. Finally, check for updates for DirectX (version 9.0C). Post back your results, please.

My presario v5000 is running very slowly and freezes at times


There could be alot of reasons for this happening could even be some kind of virus but I am going to show you the easiest way to check what could be wrong hopefully you are running xp or vista should not be to different,if you goto task manager (right click on your taskbar the bottom one next to the start button) this will tell you what programs are running on your computer.When it starts running slow do a check and find out what is running,it could be a antivirus checker or something like that.If you cant see anything running then click on the performance tab on task manager to see how much cpu power is been used,hopefully something will jump out at you and you will be able to fix this very annoying issue.

Laptop problems


A few months ago was the peak of Windows Virus Season, so it's likely you picked up one or more. I have seen viruses this season that denied your browsers to access the interned though some of the computer's resources still had access.

Run a full virus scan in safe mode with your up to date Anti-Virus program. If you don't have Anti-Virus and a running Fire Wall, I suggest you do after you format and do a clean install of Windows.

Good luck.
