Computer slow is really a headache to users. Therefore, people always ask question about how to get a slow comouter faster. For that, you must firstly know why computer slowdown. After diagnosing the problem, you can fix slow computer more easy.

Here we gives you some advice to make your PC faster.

The most possible causes of slow problem for an old computer.
1 Corrupt registry is the number one cause. In short, the registry is the fort of the system. The most important date and setting are restored in the registry. External change may damage the key and make it mess up. In that case, you may face a blocked Windows. Visit here to cleanup registry and speed computer.

2 Discontinuous harddisk is know as the NO.2 reason. I would not talk about too much. Here just show you how to defrag a slow computer.

  2. Right-click the local disk volume that you want to defragment, and then click Properties.

Why a brand new computer is slow?

2 Sometimes, it is Windows fault. You have to update SP2 to SP3. Suggest you download all microsoft patches.

After the initial or fresh install of windows xp and all programs your computer may start to slow down.

Here is the method to turning all those unwanted programs off and prevent them from open on your future start ups.

-->click start
-->click Run...
-->type msconfig in the box
-->find the tab that says start up and click
-->uncheck all the boxes
-->click apply

and you're done!

Very slow on start up


Uninstall any unwanted software by using control panel, ADD/Remove Software. move any photos, mp3s etc to a CD or external drive.
install and run some anti spyware software like ADAWARE (free download) then
click my computer right click your C drive
left click properties click tools tab click defragment now click defragment button (and leave running for a few hours) this will place all your framented files which slow down disk read access into sequential (single part) files

finally to make a real difference add more memory (thats RAM not hard disk)

hope this helps Richard

Choppy playback, keeps stopping to load


Your Internet connection is too slow.
So, your media-player is getting "starved", and thus must "wait" for more content to be downloaded.
Upgrade the speed of your Internet connection, or connect to higher-speed web-servers, such as YouTube.

My computer too slow always get the not responding reply.


Eliminate Viruses and Spyware
Step 1

Run your antivirus program. There may be something slowing your computer that you can remove. It is a good idea to run your antivirus program every week.
Step 2

Remove spyware. Run a good spyware tool at least twice a month.
Step 3

Use a pop-up blocker, if you have one. Check your antivirus program.


Dispose of the Extras

Step 1

Delete your document files for anything you no longer need. Saved pictures, audio and video files in particular can slow your computer.

Step 2

Remove unwanted programs from the Control Panel area. Old toolbars or games the kids downloaded off the Internet are a good place to start. Look for software you no longer use, such as the old printer you threw out last year.

Step 3

Clean out your email. Old messages are a constant drain on your computer's resources. Go through every folder, deleting everything you do not need. Leave no mail! Finish by emptying the Deleted Items folder.

Step 4

Turn off unnecessary programs. Check your taskbar for icons that show running programs. Disable anything you are not currently using.

Run Maintenance

Step 1

Run the Disk Cleanup tool located in your Control Panel. (Windows only. For other operating systems, please check the Resources section below.) This will remove temporary files, cookies and unnecessary components to speed up your computer.

Step 2

Defragment your computer. Defragging takes some time, but will speed your computer significantly. You can find the tool in your Control Panel. Run it monthly.

Step 3

Check for disk errors. Sometimes corrupted files slow down your computer. To find and fix these files, Go to My Computer and right-click on C drive. Choose Properties, then Tools.

Laptop boots slow


Hi,

A couple of reasons why any PC will boot slowly:
1. slow processor, low memory, slow hard drive;
2. too many programs starting up. Pls try goto Start, Run, in next small window, type "msconfig" less the quotes, OK. In next window, click on the "Startup" tab, un-check everything (except perhaps your anti-virus or anything else you think is important). Click on buttons, Apply and then OK. If for some reason you would like to return some programs back, you can always go back and check them.
3. it would also be of great help to check for any possible virus or malwares (download , install and run Ad-Aware).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Slow DVD playback


Playing DVD's requires a bit of constant transfer from the drive to the controller and from the controller to the RAM. First thing I would try is disabling background programs. One very likely culprit is if you have anti-virus software that is running a scan in the background.

Have you tried different DVD's? The problem could be the DVD drive is not reading the DVD properly. Have you tried different players? Different players sometimes work better. I would also suggest making sure that your sound drivers are up to date.
