HOW HANNSPREE tablet SN1AT7 (HSG1279) manage its memory?

Computer's speed [whether it be a desktop or laptop, whatever be] depends on many things. Even with the highest core speed computers too can hang, and go with little speed. In your case, it will be best to contact the authorized service center, or any skilled computer technician to resolve this problem.
In most cases, a re-installation of the O/S will resolve the problem. Anyway, contact the authorized service center. It will be best.

If the computer is restarted it is slow to respond. When does respond it very slow. It seems to hang up before it display the hp logo. the same occassionally happens coming out of sleep or hiberation...

Slow booting can be caused by several things. Usually when it hangs it is a driver or update program that is having problems. For example when adobe reader updates it can take a few minutes to check to see if there is a update and so on. These are annoying as the intent is they pop up first thing to say they have an update instead of doing in the background and showing a message a few minutes after booting.

What can also happen is having to reboot it or force it to reboot it can corupt a setup and the program stalls or won't run the next time.

What you need to do is remove any programs you can out of the startup menu to start with. There are a couple of speed loaders that may be in here. Office and adobe as examples. Just move them out of the startup or delete them. They don't need to run and I've never seen them actually save any time in how fast the programs start.
There are other programs such as MSN or other programs that are set by default to run at startup. Those you can change to start when you start them not when windows does. These also can slow things down bu usually when you see the desktop.

The next place to look is add remove programs. Look for any programs that you have recently installed or do not use anymore. If you can remeber you may be able to spot which one was the one that was installed just before everything slowed down. Again this could be updates or corrupt parts of the program.

At this point if you haven't found te problem then it will be either a virus or corrupt driver. Depending on what version of windows you have you can run regedit or msconfig from the start/run window and then look at what starts up.

You should also try running antivirus or antispyware programs. Spyware tend to be dumber versions of viruses. Those will keep downloading more and more until the computer is running so slow it may take an hour or so just to put. There are several online sites that will run searches and let you fix them. there are a lot more that do the search and say spend money. A good one is called housecall. It is good at find viruses and spyware and gets rid of them.

Thats covers quite a bit but you should be able to narrow it down and then if it still is slow get specific help to finish it up if it is still slow.

I have elite mother board P4 M800 PRO M2 socket 775...the problem is always hang and to slow..i reformat 3 times but the problem same plz help me i need assistance..

This are things that need to consider in a computer speed performance:
1. Amount of ram memory(If you have only small amount of memory then your computer performance is poor.)
2. Speed of your processor(You should need at least a 1Ghz processor speed or more).

I suggest you increase your ram memory so that your computer will perform faster.

My computer is slow and i have done all things that usually are done first like delete cookies and defrag but it is still really slow and I have broadband cable. can you help me? Do I need to check some...

next time you turn it on go through a Disk Clean up . Press start, goto All Programs, click on Accessories, go to system tools, and click onDisk Clean up...
it might take a while because its loading up all the unnecessary things on your computer2.gifthat you dont use. after its done it should show a list of things to bedeleted. it should also show you how much memory it will clear okay and it will start cleaning. this process will take some timeso be patient. in the end it will provide a slight increase in the computers speed and performance.

97 T+C Speed sensor Throttle Position Sensor or Replace Tranny

these are trans codes for spd sensor and gear ratio sensors. has this trans been replaces at any time?
For some reason there are a number of different transmissions that have gone into these vans and have different gear ratios. alot of trans shops put the wrong on in that does fit but improper gear ratios. or just hopfully the sensor did go bad. they usually recommend rebuild due to being half in the trans any ways.

umm i dont know what your asking except if this may need a rebuild? I would say ask whats all included in a rebuild. all trans shops seem to differ in what they call a rebuild but all seem, to have about that same price. these chrysler transmission also seem to have alot of random pressure solenoid and solenoid pack and valve body problems.
if you want shoot back a response in what they all do and ill give you my opinion on if its a fair price for what is begine replaced. get written on paper what is replaced. not verbal.
Good luck

Wndows Xp Sp2

If you have already installed service pack two I would upgrade to SP3 to fix this problem. If you are trying to install SP2 try downloading the "genuine advantage update" (or what ever its called) and then the sp2 update, close all open programs before installing this update to help prevent hangs and crashes. also visit your manufacture website and download the SP2 patch if offered the patch will ensure a smooth install to sp2. good luck

Window stops in middle of session have to shut down and restart computer????

hi im wesley. you might have a virus of some sorts or try defragmenting your pc it will also speed it up as this sometimes happens when you have alot of things on your pc and when you delete stuff and put files on all the time it slows down alot and can hang because the files are mixed up on the hard drive. to defragment go to start-all programs-accesories-system tools-defragment then say analyze then defragment.
