Hi,

A couple of reasons why any PC will boot slowly:
1. slow processor, low memory, slow hard drive;
2. too many programs starting up. Pls try goto Start, Run, in next small window, type "msconfig" less the quotes, OK. In next window, click on the "Startup" tab, un-check everything (except perhaps your anti-virus or anything else you think is important). Click on buttons, Apply and then OK. If for some reason you would like to return some programs back, you can always go back and check them.
3. it would also be of great help to check for any possible virus or malwares (download , install and run Ad-Aware).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How to tell which computer is the best for the money!


this works on windows based computers, laptops, and desktops. The people at most computer store's don't know or don't tell you this tip, because they are sales people trying to make a sell.(1). Vista, and Windows 7 have a feature built in that tells you how well of an experiance you should have while operating, based on many different factors.(2). Vista's Windows experiance index is 1.0 to 5.9, Windows 7's Windows experiance index's range is 1.0 to a perfect 7.9, as you see the higher the index the better performance, Ergo experiance you will have with the computer.(3) Left Click on the start globe (microsoft flag), then take curser up to the right and Right Click on Computer, curser down to properties, then Left Click, a screen will pop up and show a Windows Experiance Index.Sometimes you will find 2 computer's that vary by a couple points, and the more expensive one has a lower Score. Just make sure they both are Vista, or both Windows 7. Good luck shoping for that nice performing PC

Printer crashes computer


Simple tip to fix this issue is to Index your Computer and Add Hardware based on the Test Results:


Windows Experience Index rates up your computer. You can add appropriate hardware based on the search results.


  • Click Start.
  • Press ENTER.
  • Windows Experience Index will launch.
  • Click Rate this computer button to start conducting the tests.
  • After these tests are completed, you can get the overall performance results.
You are advised to add new hardware based on the search results. For example, upgrade your processor, add more RAM and add a Graphics Card.
For Instant Fix use Reginout system utility.

Cpu is underpowered and affecting performance


If you're speaking of the Windows Experience Index, ignore it as it isn't a good indicator of performance or quality. I've got a 2 Gb 1256 GHz video card in an SLI configuration I can run full resolution at 120 fps. According to the Windows Experience Index my video card is 7.1 gaming rating but under Astro it only ranks 4.3 and thus regardless of how fast my 8 core machine is (4.8 Ghz) with 32 Gb 1600 RAM, my index rating ultimately is based on the lowest number.

Areo will not start on a clean installation of Windows 7


I just resolved this issue on a new system. The user had been running the system about 5 days and the Aero would always drop out to Windows Basic mode as soon as the system booted to the desktop.

The cause turned out to be the Windows Experience Index had not been run.

Windows 7 requires a minimum Windows Experience Index before the Aero Experience to function.

If Aero will still not run after the Windows Experience Index has been run, tun the Aero troubleshooter and reboot after the troubleshooter finishes to resolve the problem.

I have a Compaq Presario sr111onx desktop with Windows 7 Pro OS 32 bit and it is slow will it be better to use Windows xp?


It depends on the Experience Rating Index that Win 7 gives you. To see the rating, right click on My Computer and select Properties. If it asks to refresh the rating index, do so. After that, check which one has the lowest rating. If it's the processor that gets the lowest rating (if it is below 2) then yes, you should install Windows XP. If it is the graphic card, or the RAM memory that has the lowest rating, you can upgrade them to make it run better and keep Windows 7.

You can see more about the rating scores on this Microsoft website: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Windows-Experience-Index-Understand-and-improve-your-computers-performance-in-Windows-Vista

My HP compaq nx6110 windows xp sp3 hangs at boot


Take a look at this post that deals with a HP nx6110 laptop with random freeze ups. If the described symptoms also happen on your laptop. If you do experience random freezeups or slow DVD you're facing the same FSB chip problem. All peripherals, USB ports included, are connected on the Front Side Bus. Poor soldering causes intermittent contact which in turn results in hanging, slow, or totally non bootable (stuck at HP logo) laptop. Hope this helps.
