An infection could cause the issues your having. I recommend letting a professional help you clean your system. Removing infections is very dangerous and risky. They can cause data loss and you risk making the system worse. I recommend NickLockard.com

Internet barely works


Step 1:
Most of the programs running in the background of your computer start automatically during PC reboot. These applications were added to the Windows startup menu during default installation. However, you probably do not need all of the programs that are currently running on your computer all the time. This only slows down your PC and the reboot time. Fortunately, you can access the Windows startup menu and remove the programs you do not need to have running automatically. Turning off the programs shuts them down until you enable them again through the "Start" menu.

Go to the "Start" menu, type "msconfig" in the "Start Search" box and press "Enter" to start the System Configuration utility. Click the "Startup" tab in the System Configuration window. Uncheck the programs that you want to turn off and stop from running in the background. Click "Apply" and "OK" to save the new settings. Restart your computer.

Slow start up and shut down


Hello,

You didn't mention what version of Windows (Is it Windows, or is it Linux / other?) that you are using. For laptops in particular, windows sometimes gets confused as to which power saving state that the laptop should be in.

Next time that windows is running, you should see an icon of either a battery, or of a power plug in the area next to the clock (lower right corner). If you LEFT click on this, there will be a list of various power schemes that are available. MAX BATTERY will reduce the processor speed the most, while ALWAYS ON turns off power saving altogether, and allows the laptop to run at full speed.

If your fan always seems to be on, or seems to be cycling on and off rapidly even though you are doing little with the computer, then you might need to have the fan and heatsink cleaned out (consult a computer shop). When the processor starts to run hot, the motherboard will begin to slow it down regardless of the power scheme.

You might also be looking at a program that is loading during startup (did you just happen to install Open Office by chance?) that also takes a while to unload while shutting down. Consider what you have recently installed, and check your startup menu (click start >> programs >> startup ) to see what is being loaded there.

My laptop computer (windows XP, AMD 64 processor) is very difficult to start up. When I press the power button all I get is a blank screen. After 5-10 forced shut downs and startups I finally get it to...


Applications load at Startup,some may not be required. you can disable Startup applications using MSCONFIG.
  • Click Start, click Run and type MSCONFIG
  • Click Startup tab on top and view the listings.
  • Uncheck the applications which you want to disable from Startup
  • Click OK
Windows XP does not require any program for mandatory Startup.
But you should leave the following to run at Startup.
  • Firewall programs
  • Anti-virus and anti-spyware utilities
  • Keyboard software or related for hotkey functionality (this one is optional as well)
  • Software provided by your Internet Service Provider (for Internet Connectivity)
Also run a cleaning program such as Ccleaner and an antivirus program such as spybot search and destroy to make sure your system is clean and free from viruses.

Please rate this a fixya.

Computer is slow as if it is constintly running a program or something - and - sometimes the screen will go blank as if it shut off, but the power stays on


Many computers have way too many things running in the background. If you see more than three or four little icons down just to the left of the clock, (this area is called the System Tray), some of these programs could be causing your problems.
Use Windows Explorer and navigate to:

C:\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
Adjust the size of your Windows Explorer so you can see some of your desktop and drag everything in the Startup folder out on the desktop, and then restart your computer. If this minimizes, or eliminates your problem, put each item back in the Startup folder, one-at-a-time, and restart and re-test your computer until you locate the offending program.

If your computer shut off but the power keep on means that your computer is in hibernate mode
To avoid that, do this:

Go to Start >> Control Panel >> Power Options

Unckeck the hibernatge mode at hiberbate tab.

This will fix your problem.

Slow start up


Slow startup is caused by programs that initialize during startup. THings like MSN messenger, any VPN software, or just about anything that runs in your system tray (down by the clock)  try removing things from your startup folder and setting programs not to start when windows starts. 

 

You can also shut down these programs from the run menu by running the msconfig command...but I suggest you research what you're turning off before you try that...as you could disable wanted processes,

 

Hope this helps.
