SLOW and I can't work the CD-ROM thing

Hi, I have a Vaio XP and it has become very slow and deliberate. Also, and most importantly, I can not put a CD ROM in to the slot and have it come up. I have a blue screen that says it's processing the CD, but I never get the picture FROM the CD

My sony vaio has become so slow, used to respond so quickly, especially when first signing on.


There should be no need to run memtest again. 7 passes should be considered a sufficient test.

Some antivirus suites have been known to actually cause crashes in Windows 7 with certain system configurations.
If removing your antivirus solves your problem, you have found your culprit. You can switch to microsoft security essentials if you need to. It's not the greatest thing ever but it does work.

My Sony Vaio VGN-FS980 (Windows XP) is running really slow.


The Sony Vaio slow issue can be caused by reasons like lack of free disk space, registry corruption or redundancy, overload startup programs, virus attack, fragmented hard drive etc.

There are manual ways to get all those issues fixed but it costs time and energy, and most importantly it needs technical skills. So I'll recommend a quick yet easy speed up solution, as you can see here: http://www.sonyvaioslow.com/

Hard disk access terribly slow - Sony VAIO VGN CR490


Often times, when a PC has be used for a long period of time, information becomes fragmented on the disk, causing read errors and various problems similar to what your experiencing.

To rectify this issue:

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > "Disk Defragmenter"

I would also suggest using a free tool called Ccleaner. This is a wonderful maintenance tool.

Sony Vaio VGN-FS980 is slow


Aside from hardware many things can slow up your PC:
  • If the C: drive is too full Windows is unable to allocate a proper virtual memory cache on the drive.
  • Your chosen anti-virus solution can even slow certain machines down (post what your running)
  • A high % of the time it is spyware/malware related
Just to make sure the machine is completely malware free you should download and run this program.
