Backup all your files (E-mail, address book, music, license-keys for purchased software),
writing either to DVD-recordable disks, to an USB memory-stick, or to an external disk-drive.

Then, reinstall Windows, "wiping" everything from your disk-drive.
Run "Windows Update" (repeatedly) to get all the latest security-updates.
Reinstall anti-virus software.
Reload your files.
Reinstall the purchased software.
Reinstall the free software (Adobe Reader? WinAmp?).

When i am playing game it seems slow in any options and play- like freezing


Hi there,

Are you referring to slow performance when playing a game on your PC? Or are you referring to your PS3 / 360 / Other?

If you are referring to your PC, I have a couple of suggestions that might help. First off, try these programs. They'll clean your PC of unneeded junk files:

http://www.tune-up.com/download/ http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download
I would also recommend disabling most of your startup items. They all hog the system resources when playing games. You can do this by going to Start > Typing in MSConfig > Disable Startup Items > Reboot.
The last thing I would recommend is a Game Booster. It disables all those system services that run in the background. You don't need them when you're playing games on your computer because all they do is make Windows look pretty. Here's a good one:

Hope this helps. If you're referring to a PS3 or a 360, let me know and I can reclarify my answer for you. :)

CANT ACCESS A PC GAME INTERNET BASED, FIREWALL IS FINE, SUGGESTED ITS A ROUTER PROBLEM BUT DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT.


well im sure since your on the net now your computer doesnt have a connection problem i would try downloading new java and other related updates i would also recheck your system requirements because sometimes if your requirements and the lowest needed its too much for the computer to play with other players on the net (overloading) and is none of the above check your core temp (cpu fan) in your bios .. google it .. and google normal temps to see if your temp it healthy(considered bigger fans)... remove old files that can slow down the computer and go to start>allprograms>acessories>disk clean up let it run and then disk defragment... you should see a slight change in your computer performance.. and if all else fails call your internet provider to help establish connection issues

Nba 2k10 is really slow on my computer, i just got the game and its the biggest thing i have on my computer probably. i have tons of space left, why is it so slow when i go into quick games?


Its not really a question of hardrive space. Its of RAM and graphics card memory. Your computer has 3 gigs of ram and the game requires one however if you have other things running while your playing they will also take up ram and when all the ram is being used the computer will run slowly. Try not to have anything running while you play the game and see if that helps.

If its still slow it could be because of video memory. Try to play in low graphics detail which will make it easier for the computer to "process"

Hope this helps.

Chipped psp runs slow while playing games. Eveything else is perfect


I'm assuming that when you say "chipped" you mean "hacked"

If this is the case and you have an M33 firmware, you have 2 options.
1. get it reflashed or update it to a newer firmware which will reset all of your settings.

2. press select and at the top of the screen there will be a menu that you can change 2 cpu speeds. play with those settings until the games play smoothly.
If that doesn't work your only option is choice #1.

My laptop is goin really slow and i dont know why. i downloaded my favorite game world of warcarft and it was fine but now everthing on my laptop including world of warcarft is goin realy slow please help...


Did you install many more things after you downloaded the game and before the game had gotten slow?
Sometimes games take a tremendous amount of resources from the computer, and anything else that can be running in the background such as anti-virus software can really bog the system down. If you game crashes to the desktop, this can be a sign that other programs are running and taking up to much of your resources. If you game plays fine, and then slows down after a few hours, and only a reboot will speed it up, than this can be a lack of RAM. I would suggest that you start by turning down the frame rates, and details on the game and see if this helps. Generally, games have the options to do this from the main menu. If this doesn't work, I would suggest that you turn programs off that aren't needing to continually run on the computer.
