Please find the name of the hard disk drive, found on the white label on the hard drive. Ex: Seagate, Western Digital, Samsung ECT. Got to their web site & download their tools or drive setup utilities & create a bootable floppy disk or bootable CD disk.
Their dos like software will test & repair most hard disk problems. Back up you're personal data, picture, and address book ECT. & burn to CD before running software.
If it finds problems it will erase you're data to repair the drive. You'll find other settings you can turn on or off that may increase the drive speed. The slowness is all about the hard drive & not you're system. If you're lucky all you'll have to do is a fresh install of windows.

Good Luck!

    More to the point, It's not you're motherboard that is failng. It's you're hard disk drive that's failing. Normally running the Mfg's software on the drive can breath new life to the drive. Slow write & or slow read are casued by data corruption, windows registry corruption & the drive's file allocation table corruption. Bad sectors on the drive is another reason for slow write speed & lockups. It's all about the drive in you're case.

My laptop is very slow and it delays my work and connection.what can be done

It could be a hardware error either memory or disk. Go to control panel, admistrative tools, events and look at system for disk errors. If you find any, that is a bad sign. Your disk is going bad. Make sure you have all your data backed up as the disk probably needs replaced.

If you didn't find any errors, it could be viruses. Go to and run their free virus scan.

Other things that slow down a system is temporary files. Download Ccleaner and delete all temporary files it finds. Also, let it clean the registry.

A badly fragmented disk can also slow down your system. Download Defraggler and defrag the system.

Let us know what you find so we can be of further help.

Compac cq70 pesario ,is it a good laptop?IM HAVING PRBLMS WHT IT!

Go to the control panel and adjusted the speed rate of the keyboard to its max speed meaning: repeat delay: short (drag to the right most knot)
repeat rate: Fast (right most also).
Make sure you have the updated driver for your motherboard for once try uninstalling and then installing your VGA driver. Run SmitFraud Fix to make your laptop work faster
For some it was a battery problem,try removing the battery and then start using the adapter [without the battery]. Make sure you do a regular disk cleanup and use disk defragmenter for C drive.START--ALL PROGRAMS--ACCESSORIES--SYSTEM TOOLS--DISK DEFRAGMENTER/DISK CLEANUP.
It's not the facebook,it could be any program that makes your laptop slow.The more programs running on your laptop means that laptop is getting slower.

My hp pavilion a800n's fan won't turn off

It is possible that your computer is simply overheating causing it to slow down. There are a few ways to check this. Enter the BIOS and go to the hardware monitor, what temperatures does the computer read both for the CPU and the Motherboard? Another option is to install and run a program called HWmonitor that can be found here. Report back when you can.
