It sounds as if you may have spyware of sorts running on your computer slowing it down, possibly a virus or just too many programs running in the background. What are you running as far as Anti-Virus and is that software current (up to date)? You can try some Free downloads to look for and remove that junk from your computer... we use www.superantispyware.com to fix and remove any spyware, malware, trojans, etc. from our PC's. Also, turn off as many programs running in the background as possible and make sure if your on a network (home or office) that is is secured. So that no one outside can piggy back off of you.

6910p really slow


what operating system are you running? How long has it been installed? Do you use antivirus? Did you just install the ram, if so was it faster or slower before? How old is your pc? Common reasons for a slow computer are a failing hard drive, Bad RAM modules, Viruses, Or the hardware is just plain worn out.

Ram is sold in differnet sizes which is the most realized factor of ram. but Ram is also sold at different speeds.

If you have 4gb of ram at 800mhz each then 2gb of ram at 1333mhz would still outperform the slower 4 gb. Make sure this is not the problem (would only be if you changed the ram and encountered problems)

Run a memory testing program, there are thousands of free ram test programs for free.

Try different ram sticks.

Backup important files and reinstall windows (this will fix 90% of slow computers)

Try a different hard drive: you will need to install fresh or take an image of drive and put it on new drive. (if you image your drive make a partition on the new drive that is as close to the same size as you can to avoid problems.

I have an aspire 3053 laptop it is so slow its unbelievable is it possable to change the memory to speed it up its about 3 year old


Is your computer running Windows Vista Home Basic?
Does it have 512MB of RAM installed?
If yes to both questions, then adding 2048MB of RAM will _definitely_ speed-up your computer.

See: http://www.pcmemorystore.com/Acer-Aspire-3050%5E1733-ram.htm where you can buy 2GB (2048MB) of DDR2-4200 RAM for $38 US.

The usual cause for a "slow" computer is too-many programs running at the same time (not too many programs installed onto the disk-drive) competing for too-small amount of RAM.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power-cord.
Flip the computer over.
Remove the battery.
Remove the screws over the memory cover (at the centre of the bottom).
You'll either see a stick of RAM, or an empty slot for RAM.
Remove any existing RAM, and insert the new stick of RAM.
Replace the cover.
Insert the battery.
Connect the AC power.
Boot it up, and it will run _MUCH_ faster.

Slow


Toshiba 1805's are older, PIII (or Celeron) based computers. Two things you can do to make these babies run fast: first and foremost is to max out the RAM to 512MB - that will usually do it - as most of the 1805's that I've seen are still running with 256MB, which is simply inadequate; the other, of course, if to put in a faster hard drive (5400rpm or higher). If you do both, these machines can still be pretty potent...

I upgraded to xp but now its running really slow


You may not have enough RAM. I think Windows XP runs like a champ on about 1gb of memory. But in your case 512mgs should be ok.

Each day my computer seems to run slower and slower.


Run the commands in your Accessories and also don't forget you need to Defrag and run an Anti-Virus software. The proper programs are under Start>All Programs>System Tools>Disk Cleanup and Defrag. When the housekeeping is done, if your computer is still running slow then the best thing you can do is upgrade the amount of RAM. That will make a noticeable difference.

Please rate this solution.

I do not know which model of compaq deskpro I have, But I have used a couple ram cards from another compaq... it increased the ram but the video(from youtube for example) freezes... what can I do to fix it...


If you added more ram to the computer that is a slower speed, the memory will run at a lower speed overall. Even if one stick is faster, they will run at the speed of the slower memory. I would check that. Sometimes it slows your computer down to increase the ram if you decrease the speed.
If its the same speed, you can usually increase your video dedicated memory in the BIOS settings.
Good Luck!

MACBOOK SHOUTDOWN


You can run the Hardware Diagnostic CD that came with the system, or if you got AppleCare, run diagnostics to see if it is indeed a RAM problem. Removing one at a time can tell you if one is bad, but it doesn't tell you if the motherboard is bad as well. If you remove 1 of the RAM chips, you will loose half the RAM capacity, so your speed will slow down dramatically. It should still work, unless you had the minimum RAM. If you still have 512 MB or more, it will work, just a lot slower than before.
You can use other RAM brands like Kingston or Crucial. Just be sure that you get compatible RAM when buying new. It must match the other RAM (except for size).

Toshiba sat. 1805-S254


I am currently using the laptop model that you described. Go to toshiba support, click download, click portables, click satellite, and where it says: choose model, click show older models. Type in your satellite model on the search bar, (1805-S254) and click 1805-S254 in the results and hit GO. Now, the second thing from the top of the list of drivers says: BIOS. click the plus. Find: ACPI Flash BIOS version 1.10 for Satellite 1800/1805-S204/254/274 (v1.10; 10-23-2001; 671K)
and click it. Download the file and run it. Now follow the directions to make a BIOS floppy disk. After the disk is created, restart the computer. When the screen that says: Toshiba comes on, hit F12 to boot from a different device. Then it gives you a bunch of options. Hit the letter on the keyboard that tells the computer to boot from floppy disk. Then it should erase your current bios and rewrite the old one in. DO NOT update the BIOS! In the new BIOS, toshiba has a file that DOWNCLOCKS your processor. This is what makes your computer run so slow. Now people have complained that computer has overheated and shutdown but since i've downgraded the BIOS, it's been running just fine! Hope this helps! If it doesn't, email me at: fneoh7832@live.com.
