It also sounds like you have a cooling issue with your processor. Try removing that is over the area of the exhaust vents and clean all the dust and **** off the vents, heat sink, and fan. You may have to remove the fan to do so.

Some acer laptops have a known cooling problem which create exactly this type of issue. I have an acer Aspire 3680 2301 and a lot of forums recommended to put it in the freezer (no kidding!). JUst try to level up the laptop from your table with some stable blocks (just an inch off the table should be enough. You don't want to knock it off the ground by accident. Just mind where the cooling fans are when you position your blocks and make sure you have all 4 corners covered for stability.

Open your system configuration and check all programs running unchecking unneccessary programs may increase speed if your antivirus is at its maximum configuration it can slow your cpu reconfigure the antivirus to essentials only and run it if it performs better the antivirus program may be too heavy, get a registry cleaner program your registry may be clogged with unnecessary links and loops. and finally if you have konwledge on registry editing there are tweeks that can be done to increase performance. check also you display configuarations if it is set on best appearance themes and other displays can slow down processing uncheck most of them or set display it in best performance (Right click my computer - click advance tab - click performance settings button - click best performance you could check the last 4 options present to make your desk top appear fairly decent then check if performance improves. Have you checked your ram modules it may not be working properly (right click My computer it should register you total ram if its the same with your actual then there is nothing wrong with it if not it may be a RAM module problem. Hope your lap top works faster.

The easiest method is to restart the PC. If high CPU usage continues after reboot Check the performance monitor. Start Task Manager >> Performance >> Resource Monitor. Locate the process that uses the most CPU power and kill it with right click >> End process.

There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly or restart at time and then. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the process is for.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

Computer is slow to open file when connected to network


when connected to a network the cpu performance get highe, check your cpu performance by press control alt and delete on your keyboard at the same time to go to windows task manager, see the cpu usage by clicking performance, if the cpu usage is above 50% it means that wasn't normal, run a virus scan to make sure that your windows is free from viruses, if it can't fix your problem it mean you need to reinstall your operation system

My aspire is installed with windows xp no drivers but CPU running


Within TASK MANAGER, click the "Processes" tab.

Click the 'CPU' column-heading.
Click it a second time.

Now, each process will be listed in order,
with the TOP-MOST lines showing the processes that are consuming the largest share of the CPU.

CPU Performance always sitting above 70%


Hello slewis938,

Are you familiar with the freeware tool called Process Explorer? It's a third party version of Windows Task Manager but contains many more features. For example, if a svchost process is using a lot of memory you can mouse over the process and actually see which services are running in the svchost process. Of course, there's much more that can be done with the Process Explorer application. and It's size is not very large for all it does. I've been using it for a few years now and it has helped me more than Windows Task Manager. Please check it out to see if it can help you determine what's causing the high cpu usage. Here's a good article about Process Explorer: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx
Here's the Process Explorer download link:

If this solution is helpful, please give it a rating

Have a great day,

Laptop computer lagging horribly


You have something running in the background that is eating up the CPU useage. You need to identify which process is doing this.

Use the built in task manager, using ctrl-alt-delete to bring it up, and see which process is at above 90% cpu usage. Then post back here what you find.
