Sometimes things can get out of sync. Try unplugging the machine for a few hours to rest the code on the board. It's like rebooting your computer. I did this to mine and it cleared up the problem. The capacitors on the board need to discharge to completely depower the board. That why unplugging and replugging right away doesn't always work.

Word crashes during the phase between label address entry using the Avery toll Wizard and the printable word document with the labels once you hit 'finish'


If Word launches fine, but crashes or freezes when you perform some function it is possible your registry's data key has become corrupt.
To fix this, you must close Word and edit the registry as follows:
Go to start -->run-->type regedit and press enter key ,
Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\ Word. (Note: the 9.0 refers to Word 2000, if you use Word 97, you will see 8.0, Word 2002 is 10.0, and Word 2003 is 11.0). Inside the Word folder, you will see a folder called "Data". Delete this Data folder and relaunch Word.
In many cases, there's some add-in you've installed that's causing problems (slow loading files, etc.) ... something that has to load with every document. One example would be Norton Antivirus, which includes an Office PlugIn that greatly slows Word down because it scans every document when you open it, which is totally unnecessary since Norton already scanned the documents when you added them to your computer. If you are running Norton, go into Norton's AV settings and you will see an option for the Office plugin -- remove that checkmark and see if that fixes your problem. However, if you are not using Norton, this is the kind of troubleshooting you will have to do, with any program you think might be affecting Word.
Another thing to check is the "fast save" option in Word. It is definitely NOT fast and causes major sluggishness in Word. Go to Tools>Options and click on the Save tab and remove the check from "Allow fast saves".

There's sound on everything except YouTube


Watch videos at off peak times, if possible
2. Do not run other programs while watching videos. They slow down computer in general by making use of memory.
3. Add RAM on your computer. More RAM will make easy execution of heavy programs on your system.
4. Get better and speedy internet connection. Talk to your ISP in this regard.
5. Regularly clean windows registry. Windows registry is vital place that stores information for important computing functions. A congested or corrupted windows registry makes computer slow that causes YouTube like freezes. For this, get the best registry cleaner reginout and optimizer. Use it once in a fortnight for fast computing to avoid YouTube freezes and system slow down.

Computer very slow I just had more memorty put in cost 126.00 and still slow.help


try changing your power calliberation settings.. the thing is that the laptop is set to use minimal power to conserve battery life,, the downside to this is that it slows everything down.. To change this you can do one of two things,, right click the power connector / battery to the button right of the screen next to time,, and customise your setting to Perfomance,, apply and save it,, or you can go into control panel and power settings and change it from there.. There are different settings ,, actually ,, performance is hidden or needs to be customised ,, play with the settings and select perfromance (least battery life) it will make u run super fast....
PS.. this shorten battery life so you will need to recharge more often,,

Please help! I am a bit of a perfectionist so when my zoo becomes quite full I find it annoying when everything moves with jerky movements and not at a smooth speed, sorry don't know how else to describe...


I usually never have that problem except if there are things installing or antivirus is running. This means it is because your computer needs to load too much details (because of the visitors and everything that is built). There is not too much you can do, except a few things that might make it slightly better.

A regular thing is defragmentating your computer, this will make your computer run programs faster. Mind that you can first uninstall all files on your computer that are useless, that you don't need. I am not sure about the version of your windows computer, but usually it's "Start" > "Control Panel" > "System Management" > "Defragmentate your hard drive" , then there should be a button "defragmentate now".

Slow moving screen is usually a cause of a slow computer, or a computer that has gotten slow. It is the common thing called "lag" on online games. So the only thing you can do is closing as much programs as possible that you don't need (try ctrl+alt+del, process tab and end what you don't need) for example msn or any antivirus.

There isn't a lot more you can do, maybe uninstalling, but I personally don't think it will have any effect. Try another computer maybe and see what it gives.

There a few things that slow your computer the way you described.
  1. You need memory on the hard drive that your Operating system is on. I would say 25% or more.
  2. Clear your temporary Internet,cookies and cache from you web browser (IE, FireFox, Opera, Ect)
  3. To many thing running in the background, if you are comfortable with computers (you can use "msconfig" to turn extra programs off)
  4. Defrag your hard drives
  5. As much memory as you can will always help.
I hope this helps.

Word is also notorious for leaving temp files on the system that can cause all kinds of problems. All of these files should be deleted by Word, but they often are not. The file names all begin with a tilde (~) so search your hard drive for ~*.doc and ~*.dot and delete any you find.
