What operating system are you running? In Windows XP, you can go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter, and when the defragmenter opens, click Defragment. (In Windows Vista or Windows 7, you can just type defrag into the Search bar and then click on the defragmenter when it comes up).

    What windows are you using? is that windows XP?

    try this another solution:



    Re-register the defragmenters snap-in files, and the basic registry entries.

    First open up a Command Prompt, this can be found at:
    Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt

    Change into your windows\system32 directory. Your windows directory
    will
    be either windows or winnt. Type: cd \windows\system32

    Register the defrag components, by typing:
    regsvr32 dfrgsnap.dll
    regsvr32 dfrgui.dll

    At this stage, you may find the defragmenter works. If not, there is
    one more step you can do.

    Using Windows Explorer browse to your windows\inf folder.
    In there you will find a file called dfrg.inf right click this file,
    and select Install.

Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) Important Info

When you get a Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) on your computer this can be very frustrating. Below is the info you need to get from a BSOD because the way that Microsoft words the message a lot of people miss the real important parts. With the right information this will helps tech support help you address your problem quickly.

The first thing to look at is the error message. A lot of times you will get a message like the one below that states "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA". In the case of this BSOD the error screen the error code is a generic one of 0x00000050 so we have to rely on message that tells us that the problem was with the memory or the page file.

The next thing to look at is the error code. Note you really do not need the info between the parentheses for standard trouble shooting.

So with both pieces info this will help tech support figure out where the issue is at and where to troubleshoot.

Note the file name that the BSOD list normally is not important in troubleshooting the in most cases it just point to the point where Windows had the problem.

Improve performance by defragmenting your hard disk


Fragmentation makes your hard disk do extra work that can slow down your computer. Removable storage devices such as USB flash drives can also become fragmented. Disk Defragmenter rearranges fragmented data so your disks and drives can work more efficiently. Disk Defragmenter runs on a schedule, but you can also analyze and defragment your disks and drives manually. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Disk Defragmenter.

  2. Under Current status, select the disk you want to defragment.

  3. To determine if the disk needs to be defragmented or not, click Analyze disk. ?id=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    Once Windows is finished analyzing the disk, you can check the percentage of fragmentation on the disk in the Last Run column. If the number is above 10%, you should defragment the disk.

  4. Click Defragment disk. ?id=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Disk Defragmenter might take from several minutes to a few hours to finish, depending on the size and degree of fragmentation of your hard disk. You can still use your computer during the defragmentation process.
Notes

  • If the disk is already in exclusive use by another program, or if the disk is formatted using a file system other than NTFS file system, FAT, or FAT32, it can't be defragmented.

  • Network locations can't be defragmented.

  • If a disk that you're expecting to see under Current status is not showing up there, it might be because it contains an error. You should try to repair the disk first, then return to Disk Defragmenter to try again. See Check your hard disk for errors for more information.


    also "hibernate" the computer instead of "shut down"

Re boot in safe mode if normal boot is not possible and run CHKDSK/F
DO NOT DISABLE ANTIVIRUS!!!!!!

That should sort hard disc errors out then download iobit.com and run the registry utility, that will remove more errors. It is a free ware programme and works very well.
Hope that sorts it out for you.

How can i make my laptop work faster


Run disk defragmenter located on the system tools menu. You can also disable some startup items that run in the background therefore slowing your system.
To disable startup items:
  1. Use the System Configuration Utility to safely turn off programs that start-up through the Windows Registry. Access this utility by going to the Start -> Runrun.jpg
  2. Type msconfig and press Enter.
  3. Under the Startup tab there is a list of all the programs that start in the Windows Registry. By unchecking many of the programs you can speed up the launch time of Windows.
  4. You may uncheck everything but it is recommended to keep your antivirus checked to keep you protected always.config.jpg
