Question about Acer Aspire 3100-1405 Notebook

1 Answer

Slow...slow...and slower Well..my Aspire 3100 is offically over a year old, and gosh did it loose its speed. I have not recently installed anything new to my laptop that could make it run any slower. I actually just got it back from the manufacture; they were fixing the keybored..and since I got it back it has been runing very slow. I have deleted all temp internet files, and I even ran it for spyware like a million times. I'm thinking of degrading from Vista to XP, but I do not want to go through the trouble if there is a solution to my problem. I mean it used to be fine...but now even youtube would not play for me..it loads, but does not play correctly. Please help!

Why is my Aerolite mobility scooter lacking speed? I have had it recently serviced and they found the speed controller loose, They said they fixed it. But now its slower then before what can be wrong?


hi Steph , the speed controller being loose would not affect speed unless there is a bad connection now ...in most cases it's either brushes or brake not releasing 100% or the motor has become retarded sadly...

if it has a 4 to 8 mph switch make sure the cable to the controller has not been damaged ...

Regards
Rob

Can I have windows removed from my acer aspire E5-511 laptop?


If you already have another version of windows (like on a CD) you can format the hard drive and install that. Then you have to go to the Acer website and download all the drivers that specifically go with the hardware on the Acer. For instance when you first format the drive and install a version of windows the display will just use a standard microsoft driver; the acer website has the right display driver, etc.

Firefox slow, why


"Fast" or "slow" is a subjective and unscientific description. If Firefox is not running at the speed it usually does, you should try disabling any add-ons you have recently installed and see if the problem corrects itself. If Firefox does not perform in the way you expect it to on a given computer, the computer may be equipped with a slower processor or less RAM than you are used to.

My 5 year old computer is getting slower and slower, takes 5 - 10 minutes to boot up in the morning, is slow to open up attachments and move from application to application.


Most likely due to low available disk space on the hard drive. Items like system restore and the fact that windows does not report partially used clusters as Used (If any part of a file is written to a cluster, that cluster is dedicated to that file regardless of how much is not being used, even though windows reports it free)

So freeing up disk space is one option.

You can also use applications like Advanced System Care to tune up your system

I recently just got a MSI U100-843 and having video problems


The problem could be from your internet connetion, I think your internet speed or Mbps is slow. Although system speed also has a great role to play.

So check your system memory and processor speed if it is up to standard likewise your internet connection. The problem is from either of them.

Also compare your friends compaq notebook system configuration and internet connection with yours. I believe you would know where the fault is coming from when you do this.

I use my office server to browse with my laptop and the server speed/Mbps is 100. Its usually very fast when I download. I noticed later that it gets slower between 9:30 am and 5:00 pm when alot of people are using the server in the office, so what I do is to stay back when most people must have gone and server will be fast then.

Why I am sharing this with you is because, maybe the internet server you are using gets congested as a result of many users, so maybe you should try in a time when you know most people are off the server.

I wish you the best of luck.

Computer running much slower - Not responding.


The most common reason for slow processing speed is insufficient RAM memory.

Increase the RAM, if RAM available is no more than 512MB, then it must be upgraded.

Check also your hard drive state. If you have less than 1GB free, that will slow down the system. Go to Start>>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defregmenter and do a Defrag of the hard disk.

If you have at least 1 GB RAM, and you took care of the hard drive, then you can check the process starting up on their own and remove the useless one, or spot mala-ware that can affect speed. You can use a software like Hijack This, and search on google te function of each process started on the list reported by the software.

You can download Hijack this here MajorGeeks | If download does not start, then click at the top of the page, where it says Click Here If It Does Not.
Be careful if you delete the wrong files using this software you can harm the system, and Windows may not work properly.

If you think you have malaware you can also install Spy Bot, and do a system scan. Download Spybot from The home of Spybot.

If all the above does not work, and there is no malaware, then you usually reinstall the system.

Check also the bios settings, BIOS can downgrade the CPU speed on default , even if this is uncommon on recent BIOS.

If a computer is still slow with a fresh system and enough resources then it is one of those rare occasions when you have an hardware fault.
Hardware that can cause slow down is: RAM CPU Motherboard HD Video card.

Some tips on procedure can damage your windows installation. Do not download Hijackthis software and do not change BIOS settings and do not touch hardware unless you are sure of what you are doing.

Acer Aspire 5580 suddenly slowed down


Your acer is infected with virus that current antivirus cannot detect. uninstall new application programs that make your computer slower. however if non of those causes; please try to check the memory maybe is not function well. if it is not the cause then; You should reinstall your system to fixed all error on it. ( note: reinstalling will remove some important files and you should back up) Further more; the best thing to do is format the HDD and install the new windows.

Harry: take note: that other causes of the computer slower is the HDD , I encountered 50 times problems that computer become slower bcoz of the hard drive mulfunction. If this is the case you should replace hard drive that is covered with warranty.
