I have a 1982 gateway laptop. Can I watch a video in ti?


A 1982 laptop is likely to be very slow and short of memory by today's standards. I have a laptop from those days and while it is capable of running software and animations that were written around that time and even accessing the internet at that time, it is ill-equipped to play video and quite impossible to upgrade. A 1982 laptop was great for word processing and storing text files, driving a printer and general text-based and line drawing based office duties but little else.

Cant get on facebook


you need to understand the problem which causes it to become slow. Once you restart, see if the hard disk light is continuously showing some activity. It is possible that you don't have enough RAM and in that case PC becomes slow as all the time hard disk keeps spinning. Open Task Manager and check which process is consuming high CPU/Memory. There is Resource Monitor in performance tab which show the processes consuming high Disk/memory/CPU. CHeck what that process is and uninstall that application or switch off that process. Keep searching based on what you find doing this.

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.

My Netbook is slow than usually,, how can faster it?? Acer Aspire One 532h-2Bb


#1 Make sure your laptop is free from virus, spyware and trojan. A virus or spyware can make your laptop run slow or even damage the whole system. Run a security scan to find out if there are infection files hidden in the system. The slow laptop would be fixed by eliminating the virus.
#2 Remove obsolete programs to release more hard drive space. Laptop slow problem sometimes would be caused by the less hard drive space. To optimize your slow laptop, you can try to delete those unneeded programs, files from the hard disk especially the system disk.
#3 Empty the Recycle Bin to retrieve more system resource. Your laptop slow symptom maybe arises due to the deleted files in the Recycle Bin. If you forget to empty the Recycle Bin, those files in fact still exist on the hard drive and keep eating up your laptop system resource so that the laptop will run slow.
#4 Scan and fix Windows registry. Do you know how important registry is in Windows system? Corrupted, invalid or malicious registry will slow down your laptop and make it run unstable. You would receive many error messages such as dll errors, Internet Explorer errors or blue screen of death in the using of laptop. Thus, it is necessary for you to fix your slow laptop by cleaning registry errors.

Try deleting all unwanted files like Temp files, disk clean up, disk defragmentation.

I done a norton scan removed the virises now its logging on then straight off cant get into mt laptop


Turn system restore off to begin with. Not sure how familiar you are with this process but click on start, then right-click on "my computer", then click properties, then look for "system restore"...should be top left tab. I'm assuming you are running windows XP? Anyway, put a checkmark in the box that says "turn off system restore".

Now run your full system scan with Norton. Whatever Norton detects and removes etc...it will now be vanished since the virus can no longer back itself up in the system restore file.

Godspeed! It's a time-consuming process for sure. Best of luck!

Advantages and disadvantages of Nero software


Nero today previewed the latest version of Nero Move it, which now features support for the Nvidia CUDA architecture, at the CeBIT trade fair. Available as a free update to current Nero Move it customers in April, this new version includes impressive accelerated video encoding times and a decrease in CPU usage to enable users to enjoy even faster file transfer time. By using CUDA technology to tap the massive parallel processing power of Nvidia Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), Nero Move it makes tasks such as customizing an HD video for an iPod, go from hours to minutes. Even more time can be saved when creating full HD video content in the H.264 video compression standard.

"Nero Move it is designed to allow consumers to effortlessly convert and share digital media content among a variety of popular entertainment devices. Shifting specific video processing tasks from the CPU to the GPU enables consumers to complete their content transfers in a fraction of the time," said Michael Steele, general manager of visual consumer solutions, Nvidia. "People now expect to interact with technology in a more natural and visually appealing way. Whether it's with photos, video, or 3D graphics, the GPU is the perfect processor to enable the best experience."

The standards-based Nero Move it technology allows even non-technical consumers to quickly and easily convert music, videos, and photos from one file format to another for use across a broad range of supported portable devices. Nero Move it is designed to move content between the PC, mobile phones and smartphones including the Apple iPhone 3G, T-Mobile G1, iPod devices, digital cameras, camcorders, PlayStation Portable devices, and social networking web sites.

"Nero Move it empowers users to take control of their video, music, and photo libraries. By utilizing Nvidia CUDA technology, and the subsequent accelerated video encoding time, we have made it even easier and faster for consumers to freely move their content between their mobile devices," said Charly Lippoth, chief technology officer, Nero AG. "By leveraging our core technology expertise and platform neutral approach, Nero Move it users can transfer their content to hundreds of compatible devices and take their multimedia content with them wherever they go."


so there are lots of advantages in nero......we can burn a dvd to a desired format and moreover cuda is gonna be a delight for most people.....the main disadvantage is that the newer versions are not user friendly as the older ones....sometimes it makes the system to slow down the writing process.....

Computer wont boot and i cant get to the start screen to try rec


The computer needs maintenance periodically just like a car needs servicing. The computer generates temporary files when it is running and these consume hard disk space if they are not removed, also these files will slow down your computer.
To service your computer you should at lease once a month do a Disk Cleanup and a Defrag.
The Recycle bin should be emptied periodically.

To do a Disk Cleanup Click on My Computer, then right click on the C Drive, then click on Properties, then Disk Cleanup, then tick all the boxes to recover the hard disk space. (This process could take a few hours depending when it was last done and the size of the hard disk).

To do a Defrag, click on Programs, click on Accessories, then System Tools, then Defrag. then select the C Drive, then start the Defrag.

Again this will take a long time, you may want to start these processes overnight, don't stop them let them run till they finish. The next time you run them, it will not take as long.
