Change ur operating system
Turn off unnecessary programs from start up: A lot of computer users complain that their Windows 7 or Vista does notboot faster. I would recommend to such people to have a shorter startup items list.
Have low intensity graphics If you are not an ardent gaming user then you can afford to run computer faster with low intensity graphics.
Uninstall unused software and programs: It is very common that people install a number of computer programs andthen stop using them. These unused programs shall be removed toincrease the computer speed.
The above guidelines were reallyhelpful to speed up my computer. These are safe and do impact computerperformance in a positive way.
Frustrated of the dead slow speed of your computer? Do you wish to speed up computer in seconds? Please remember to clean Windows registry with Intel Software Partner, RegInOut . After this scan you will feel how much faster is your computer running.

Extremely slow running


Slow computer If you have a virus program installed, it is most likely is running a scan on your hard disk. It can slow down your computer especially if you have a large hard drive. After scanning is completed then the computer will be faster.
To make your computer (hard disk) lean and mean, uninstall any programs you do not use.
Also you need to maintain your hard disk by running Disk Cleanup this will remove old temp files and old compressed files etc.
This will reduce the number of files the virus scanner has to scan. Plus running Defrag. this makes your files contiguous so the system can access files off the hard drive quicker because it does not work as hard.. Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out at least once a month.
If you have 512Mb of RAM installed then installing more RAM will speed up your computer. After installing your graphics card, you may need to disable the built-in graphics card in the BIOS for the new graphics card to work properly.

My mac is very slow. especially when playing videos. the videos are very choppy. is there anything that can be done to fix this?


Well, there are many reasons that may causing a Mac computer running slow, but generally two factors: hardware part & system part. For hardware part: I guess it's OK if your Mac is not that old. For system part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, registry errors... out there which largely slow down any Mac machines. Actually about 80% slow Mac caused by this reason, if so, try cleaning the system. Learn more from: http://www.howtospeedupmac.com/ good luck!

Dell computer.5 yrs.old. Very,very,slow.What can be done? Have dial up internet service. Also, what does memory upgrade mean?


Hi,

There's nothing you can do about your internet speed, dial up is dial up and is known to be slow. If you want fast internet then you would need broadband.

A memory upgrade would speed up the overall performance of the PC. For example: the computer may take 5 minutes to fully boot up and programs taking time to launch. This would not fully resolve but help it to be more responsive.

A memory upgrade is always recommended by me. I expect that your computer can be probably maxed out to 2GB of memory.


Regards.

Computer is very slow


Try defraging.
If your willing to spend money
get more RAM it worked for me, ask someone or look it up, about how much ram your computer can "handle" and buy the RAM stick according to your pc max capacity

No, in almost all cases upgrading your computer wil only make it run slower. If you want to improve the computers speed there a couple things you can do. 1) Run spyware/virus scans, 2) Add RAM to increase computer speed, 3) Defrag
Software Critics says,

Try these--Highly Effective Ways to Optimize PC Speed made simple
Solution: 1: Create restore point and take registry backup.
2: Delete all temp files.
3: Delete all unwanted software's and security software's from add/remove program.
4: Disable all unwanted services from startup and then remove from registry.
5: Reset internet explorer and then register all .dll files.
6: Scan with spyware removal malwarebyte,hijackthis and Trojan removal.
7: Check windows update if found and then download and install.
8: Defrag C: drive
9: Restart the computer, and then check it.
A big NO NO: It's not recommended to edit registry before upgrading a PC or even making a slow PC faster as some registry cleaners can scrape out old registry entries of which some may be necessary to keep some programs running! And avoid websites trying to sell you something unnecessary.

Why is my computer so slow to load anything ,its even slowing my internet speed, i i open limewire and try to do anything online it doesn't even wanna move.


Hello

Have your computer always been slow or is it a recent problem?

If it has always been slow, you need to install more ram. Just take your computer to your nearest computer hardware store and they should inform you on what ram you need to buy. They will do it for free.

If this slow pc is a recent problem, you might want to defrag the computer. But this could just as easy be a duplication virus, so it might also help if you update your virus protector and do a full system scan.

My best advice is however to format the computer and install a clean copy of windows.

Hope you can find this helpful.

Kind regards

I want to install more ram to my computer


Hello

Well, if the ram has the same amount of pins, it is possible to do this .
Just remember to check and see if the ram has the same amount of pins, and also check the frequency of the ram you want to put in.
If the frequency on this ram is less than the one you have in you computer, it will slow down you current ram chip. Hope this can help you.

Best regards

Skype runs slow on video


You absolutely need more RAM. I have 2.4GHz processor with 2GB RAM and Skype video runs pretty smooth.

Since your computer is 10 yrs. old, you may not even be able to install enough RAM to make it "good".

If I can be of more assistance, use the Comment button to reply.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Computer runs too slowly and ''grinds''


Depending on the situation, It could be you need more ram. If your running Windows Vista, 2-3 years old computers are probably coming with about 512mb-2 gb's or ram. In which case grab at least 3 gb's or ram and you'll be ok. If it's an xp system. grab at least 1gb or ram. Internet delay though could possibly be due to your ISP or perhaps a virus/spyware. There are certain viruses and spyware that slow down internet connection while leaving your pc running fast.
