Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

1 Answer

Slow Browser I am having problems with web browsing- very, very, slow speed. My browser is Internet Explorer 7 and my operating system is Vista. When I click on IE icon I get a screen that says cannot find http://aoltool...etc.. I cant open IE unless I click off that screen and type in a web address. I have reset my settings, tried IE without add-ons, and cleared cache. I have no idea what to do next. I checked for viruses, did spysweeper, defragged last week, and did a system restore yesterday. Also, do you recommend another browser with Vista? If so, which one?

Choppy internet connection


If you are a frequent viewer of Internet-based video, then you know how frustrating it can be when streaming video doesn't play correctly. When a video is described as being "choppy," it can mean several things, including out-of-sync audio, stuttering frame rate and/or inconsistent stream speeds. However, although this term can mean several things, there are several ways to address all of these issues at once and help make your video viewing experience a bit smoother. Empty your Internet browser's cache and temporary files. Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Clear Private Data Now" (in Firefox) or "Delete Browser history" (in Internet Explorer). When you browse the Internet, your browser collects information from the websites you visit and carries this information as temporary and cache files. Too many of these files can bog down your computer, so delete them. Disable hardware acceleration. Open your computer's "Control Panel" and then click "Display." Select the "Settings" tab, click on "Advanced" and then click "Troubleshoot." Drag the hardware acceleration slider all the way to the left. This procedure can help reduce the strain on your processor, which can lead to choppy videos. Add virtual memory. If you are using Windows Vista or 7, you can add extra RAM to your computer by plugging a USB mass storage device into the computer. The operating system will automatically convert the unused space into RAM. Run your disk defragmenting utility. Click "Start" and then select "Programs." Click "System Tools" and then "Disk Defragmenter." This utility will eliminate the fragmenting of files, which could be taxing your processor.

For Internet Explorer:
Web browsers interpret incoming data from the Internet and display it in a easy-to-view format. Browsers store certain files and settings on your computer for each webpage visited, called cookies. An abundance of cookies and a large browser cache can cause the browser to run much more slowly than usual. Optimizing the speed and capability of your browser involves deleting its collection of cookies and clearing the browser cache.


Instructions
1 Open your web browser and click the "Tools" link near the top of the window. From the list of options choose "Delete Browsing History."
2 Choose the "Delete All" option. In the menu that opens select "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons." Click the "OK" button.
3 Exit and restart your browser. Navigate to a webpage to gauge the efficiency of your browser.
Tips and Warnings:
If your browser continues to be slow or non-responsive, reinstall the browser. Fresh installations often fix any files or features that may have become corrupted

The entire yahoo mail seems to be very slow in opening and responding to commands. Can you help?


First, try to access your Yahoo Mail in a different computer that is connected into different network.

If Yahoo Mail works correctly, then the problem has something to do with your internet browser or with your network.

Try to optimize your internet browser by clearing the cookies, cache, internet files and / or browsing history. Here's how:

* For Internet Explorer:

1. Run Internet Explorer and click on 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to Internet Options and locate the Browsing History section.
3. Click the 'Delete' button and delete the Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History.
4. Close the Internet Explorer and re-open it.
5. Access your e-mail.

* For Mozilla Firefox:

1. Run Firefox and hit 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to 'Clear Recent History' and click the drop-down arrow for 'Time range to clear'.
3. Select 'Everything' and then click the line beside details.
4. Check browsing & download history, form & search history, cookies, cache.
5. Click "Clear Now" button.
6. Close and re-open Firefox.
7. Access your e-mail.

* For Safari:

1. Open the Safari.
2. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) and select "Empty Cache".
3. When asked "Are you sure you want to empty the cache?", click "Empty".
4. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) then go to "Preferences".
5. From the security dialog box, click "Bookmarks".
6. Click on "Show Cookies" button and then hit "Remove All" button.
7. Select "Done".
8. Access your email.

If the same problem occur, then it could be a network problem. Contact your ISP to verify if they're having issues.

Thank you and good luck!
