Laptop response time

My laptop is running very slowly. It takes almost 5 minutes just to get to the desktop when I turn it on. I can't remember the model number, but it's an older HP laptop that I've already added and extra card to.

New battery charging very slowly?

Power off your Laptop, unplug the power cable from the laptop as well, take the battery out and wait for about 5 minutes. Put the battery back in, make sure it is seated properly. Plug the laptop back in and power it on an see if that charges the battery quicker. If it doesn't you may have a bad battery, and I would contact the place you bought it and ask for an exchange.

How to prolong the life span of your laptop battery

Instructional steps
  1. 1Use the laptop on a hard surface. This allows proper air circulation and prevents overheating. Avoid using the laptop in temperatures over 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. 2Remove the battery when using AC power. Once the battery is fully charged, there is no need to keep it plugged in. Residual charge drains the battery slowly, so when the battery isn't needed, take it out of the laptop and store it in a cool, safe place.
  3. 3Allow the battery to drain completely before recharging. This allows you to take advantage of the limited number of charge cycles the battery contains.
  4. 4Limit the amount of applications, programs and external devices used on the laptop at one time. Close anything that doesn't need to run. Multitasking causes the processor to run too hard, producing higher heat inside the laptop and draining the battery power.
  5. 5Use your laptop's power control program to automatically save power. Reduce the backlight on your laptop when it runs on battery power. Set the standby and hibernate modes for when you take breaks from working on the laptop.
  6. 6Store your laptop battery in a cool place. Avoid heat above 80 degrees Fahrenheit, direct sunlight and extreme cold.

When i turn on the laptop why does it takes so long to load up? and also when i click on my apllications it take 5 minutes or more to load up.....what hould i do?? it celeron

Hello. If your laptop is old it is slow because the solder in the circuit boards slowly fry over a period of a few years. The only fix is a new laptop. I personally but the cheapest one I can now days, under 400. and when it gets painfully slow I replace it.

My toshiba satellite p200-140 laptop will not start up. the power button lights up but nothing else happens. it was working fine last night

My laptop had a similar problem. I left my laptop running and some time later when I went back to my laptop, it would not startup. The power light seemed to be on but the laptop would not function. I tried several things like pressing on the power key for some time without any success and also tried all sorts of alternate buttons and sequences.

I resolved the problem by first disconnecting the power cord then by removing the battery for 5 minutes. I then re-installed the battery then connected the power adapter.

As soon as I turned the power button 'ON', the laptop booted up again.

Hope this works out for you.

Change router locaation

do factory reset of configuration settings then log in with the routers default credentials. then change settings to your liking with one exception: DO NOT USE WEP!!!!! At a minimum use WPA 1 personal (with MAC filtering if you know how.) WEP can be hacked in less than 5 minutes.
