I generally find that they overheat when there is an obstruction in the air ways. Placing the plastic nozzle of a vacuum cleaner over the air intake and exhaust clears any debris that blocks the air ways.
As it heats up it will slow down until it finally keels over and kills the uProcessor.

Pc gets hot and slows down, slows down considerably when playing a game....wont let me move tiles in Rummikub game after a short time of playing. HELP

It seems that you have problems with your video card, that's a common problem with many HPs. Better go to a service center to fix it. And, the laptops aren't for gaming, if you want to play, buy a desktop.

Hp mini 1030nr is slow after ram upgrade. I installed a second 1 mb dimm thinking to take the speed up a notch. Instead it seems to work more slowly. Did I miss something?

This is a common misconception. Increasing the RAM typically slows things down due to additional information needed to be read and interpreted. In the old DOS days this can be compared to a wait state, were the faster components need to wait for slower ones to catch up. You may be better off removing the added RAM.

How to put program type on tool bar

  1. Adding Icons to the Task Bar

    1. Click on the Start Menu to open it
    2. Click on "Programs" and find the program for which you want to create an icon
    3. Move your mouse pointer to the program you want to use
    4. Depress and hold down the right mouse button while you drag the icon to the Quick Launch toolbar section of the Task Bar
    5. When you release the right mouse button, a short menu will appear
    6. Choose "Create Shortcut(s) Here." An icon will be created in the Quick Launch toolbar on the Taskbar

  2. Deleting Icons from the Task Bar

    1. Move the mouse pointer to the icon you want to delete
    2. Right-click on the icon
    3. Choose "Delete" from the short menu that appears. The icon has been deleted, but the program is still available to you on your hard disk

    NOTE: If you have carefully followed the steps above to add the icon to your Quick Launch toolbar, deleting it will NOT delete the program from your computer, it will simply remove the icon from your toolbar. The program will still be available to you.

Also you can "Drag" the program, to the bar, and "Drop" it on it. Check out a freeware application called StartupCPL at This places a Startup icon in your Control Panel which, when opened, lists all applications on your PC with a check box for each one. Simply put a check mark in each application you want to open minimized on startup. By the way, it states it is for Windows ME and 2000, but I have had it on XP for quite a while and it works fine.

Sleep function holds for only a few seconds then reverts to normal

Are you using an optical mouse? If so, try turning it upside down before entering sleep mode. On some surfaces (with some mice only), the mouse picks up movement even if perfectly still.
