The computer runs very slowly or not at all. task mamanger shows 1 gigabyte of memory in use (50%) but doesnt list any process that is using anywhere near that. tried removing norton security in case that is somehow running in the background, but that didnt help. (will reinstall if and when the computer speeds up enough for me to do that).

My Laptop is running very slow, what can i do?


Your machine is running slowly because you have too many items running in the background. And if you also have some sort of virus protection running, forget it. Using msconfig command in your run window, remove all of the arrows that are checked in your startup window. Also, turn off your virus protection, reboot, and you will be amazed at the difference.

Adding memory does not speed up a computer - it just helps to minimize the speed slowdown that occurs when you run a program(s). Just run your machine lean and mean and you will be a happy camper.

I installed two new 1 gigabyte memory sticks into a Dell Inspiron 6000, which previously only had 2 256 megabyte memory sticks installed. When I first installed the 2 gigs of new memory, the laptop turned...


Once you installed the memory, did you enter into the System BIOS Setup screen? Do this and verify that the system recognizes the newly installed 2GB RAM. This should let the system access the new memory once you boot.

Nba 2k10 is really slow on my computer, i just got the game and its the biggest thing i have on my computer probably. i have tons of space left, why is it so slow when i go into quick games?


Its not really a question of hardrive space. Its of RAM and graphics card memory. Your computer has 3 gigs of ram and the game requires one however if you have other things running while your playing they will also take up ram and when all the ram is being used the computer will run slowly. Try not to have anything running while you play the game and see if that helps.

If its still slow it could be because of video memory. Try to play in low graphics detail which will make it easier for the computer to "process"

Hope this helps.

How do i find out how much free space is left on my hard drive. the computer is moving slowly


click on "My Computer" right click on local disc "C" and click on properties. This will show you in graph form how much spave you have left. Slow downs on computers are more from a shortage of ram memory and lots of temp files clogging up the system.

Slow Computer


Could be lots of reasons. First thing you're gonna want to do is backup your important files.

I'd say it's time for a format / re-install.

You could try figuring out the exact problem(s) but it's much smarter to do what I suggested.

Trust me.

I am no expert at vista yet but I can tell you that 2 gigs of RAM is not enough. You can disale some features in Vista, but it is a memory hog and you should probably be running about 4 gigs Ram.

Upgrading acer laptop RAM


Hi,
You Can Actually Upgrade This To 2 Gig Memory.
Each Slot Will Take 1 A Gig Strip.
I,d suggest Buying another 256 mb Strip, To Put Into Slot 2.
Or Buy a 512mb ( Half Gig ) Which Will Give you 750mb With your Existing Strip Already In There. ** Recommend 1 Gigabyte Max** 2 gig of Ram in This Baby Would Probably Start Glowing.
You Can Buy DDR/266/333 In 256/512/1 Gig Strips. These Are Commonly Known As SD-RAM-Modules.
