Quick test for this is to see what is running using that CPU and RAM up. Press ALT CTRL and DEL, then processes, order it by clicking on cpu and seeing the process that is eating it all up. If you recognize it, see if there are any fixes or newer versions, if not stop using it and see if there is another you can use instead. Otherwise, come back here and toss you top five resource hog processes and the amount of memory they are using here, we will see if we can help further.

Why does my comp. load web pages really slow, it just started this 1 week ago


Make sure to run a thorough virus scan.

Slow Windows Machine! Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). High CPU levels causes hang ups like freezing. Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate. Consider increasing RAM. Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.

Toshiba NB205 keeps freezing


the freezing has nothing to do with the settings ....after you upgrade Ram memory always reinstall the operating system ...to make all the things go smooth ...after you will reinstall you will see the difference ....anyway ...first go to bios and pres f9 to get it to the factory defaults ....than move all the files you want to save in another partition from the C drive ...and after that reinstall the OS and format C partition in NTFS normal (slow way) ...make sure you have the drivers for it first ..either stored on the D drive ...or on a disk or memory device...

Want to increase the speed of my pc


Hello alanwemple,

Increasing the RAM is surely a good first step to speeding your computer up some. It was my impression that the a340n supports a total of 4GB, so you might want to recheck your manual. And 4GB would certainly be better than 2. As for the CPU, it's upgradeable on this machine, it uses a "Socket 478" chip. Simply remove the old one and insert a new one. But, the CPU is probably not contributing that much to your slowness problem.

Two things that I'd look at first, before I tackled the CPU is video performance and the hard drive. A faster video card with more video RAM can substantially speed things up. And, the hard drive may need some maintenance, starting with defrag. You may also want to do a disk cleanup and while you are at it, run a full virus check and malware detection program such as MacAfee or Norton to make absolutely sure that no bad stuff is slowing you down. And these are cheaper than replacing the CPU.

Hope this helps.

SLOW AND SKIPPING


You will probably need to stop some background programs to free up some RAM or you can always buy some more RAM memory.
