Question about HP Compaq Presario C500t Notebook

How do I make this computer run faster?

My son wants this computer to run faster, quicker. This computer is only a year/two years old ... so I am not willing to replace it. My son plays "World of Warcraft" online and he gets frustrated because others play faster than he can. Is there anything that won't cost me and arm and a leg that I can do to enable this computer to run at lightning speed? All answers will be appreciated. Thanks!

Without knowing the specs on your pc, best bet would be to add RAM and see if your internet provider has any faster connection speeds and see how much extra that would be. Other than that, not a whole lot you can do cheaply.

Turn it on, won't do a thing, just stopped. Lights up, thats all.


Hi Carol - Sometimes, a product just reaches the end of its life. A product that sees daily (or more use) for 7 years is a pretty good run. Assuming you have cleaned and maintained it, there little more that the end user can do. These makers are more complex that the old "Mr. Coffee" or percolator that used to adorn everyone's countertop; and will often cost more to repair than it's worth. You will find it is easier and quicker to replace it with a new one and probably makes more sense than investing good money in a 7 year old coffee maker.

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.

"quadratic function" diophantus , a greek


Let x be Diophantus' age when he died.

His son died 4 years before Diophantus (so Diophantus was then x-4 years old). His son lived half as long as Diophantus so when he (son) died he was x/2.
Diophantus' son was born when Diophantus was (x-4)-x/2 years old. That was 5 years after his marriage so when Diophantus married he was (x-4)-x/2-5 years old. We also know that 1/6 of his life was spent in childhood, 1/12 in youth and 1/7 as bachelor so (x-4)-x/2-5=(1/6+1/12+1/7)x.
Now you solve last equation:
  • x-4-x/2-5=11/28x
  • x/2-11/28x=4+5
  • 3/28x=9
  • x=9*28/3=84 years

Diophantus was 84 years old when he died.

Alvin is now 20 years older than his son.In 10 years,he will be twice as old as his son's age.What are their present age's?


Christine,
(D=Dad's age, and S=Son's age)

D=S+20 (Dad is 20 years older than Son)
D+10 = 2xS (In ten years Dad will be twice Son's current age)
therefore (by substitution):
S+20+10 = 2xS
S+30 = 2S
2S = S+30
2S-S = 30 (subtract S from both sides)
S = 30 (Son's current age) *answer*
D = S+20
D = 30+20
D = 50 (Dad's current age) *answer*

In ten years, Dad will be 60, which is twice Son's current age of 30.

Please ask for -Gort.

Painfully slow opening apps, especially Safari.


is your hard drive full?  if it is clean it out.  How much ram do you have...max it out.  This is an old machine and it's not very fast..it hasn't been made in four years or more.
what system are you using?  Maybe it's time for a faster computer or a faster computer.

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.
