Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Yesterday, the PC was just fine - turned it on today and it took forever to load my desktop. No matter which program I tried to run, the PC now takes forever to run the program. I went to an earlier Restore point, checkdisked the computer and cleaned up all the libraries - all of this in Safe Mode. It took all day. After this, the PC restarted and the same results. What could the problem be?

When booting, you should see if your RAM size is normal. If it's something low, such as 32mb, you should replace it, or try a system format. You could use an Antivirus, such as AVG Free, to scan your computer for viruses that might have infected it.

If your computer has been severely damaged by viruses, i would consult you to do a complete cleanup of your storage devices connected to it. A clean instalation of an operating system would ensure that your computer is virus free.

If the above do not work, or you are not experienced with computers, you should hire a technician to assist you.

My computer takes about half an hour to be completely ready. If I don't wait that long to use it, it freezes, takes forever to load something. I have an HP pavillion a610n desktop.

try upgrading the memory. 2 gigs is a good way to run.
You can also download a free registry cleaner and optimizer program that also cleans up all the garbage and speeds up your pc without loosing any files. It's called Glary Utilities and it's free. I suggest downloading and running it if possible.

Slow initial Start up ????

Your computer is trying to load a lot of programs on startup. Click Start --> Run, type msconfig. A window will appear, and on the Startup tab uncheck all startup programs and reboot. Then go back to msconfig and check the programs that you need.

White Screen

Safe mode it works forever?

Try reseting your video settings.
Right click the desktop
Go to properties
Click the settings tab
Choose your optimum resolution 600x800 and 1024x768 are most common. Unless you have a wide screen.

If that doesnt help try disabling programs that start with the pc. However unlikley it may see, if everything works fine in safe mode, it must be related.

Start > Run > Msconfig
Click the start up tab.
Click "Disable All"

How does it work now?
