PC slow performance

Hi there,

I just want to ask for an advice about my pc.

I own a P4 2.8ghz processor. I just replace the motherboard 6months ago I think, After 3-4 months it start to slowdown on boot. It took 2-3minutes before I can log-on. And while on GUI when I open 3-4 applications at the same time it hangs.. I dont have the budget to purchase a new set of pc. What can I do to lessen or prevent my PC from hanging and to speed it up.

Thank you very much for your help.

Download and install CCleaner from
This utility will clean all of your temporary files out, clean up the registry and from the Tools tab you can view all the applications in Start Up.
In Start Up reduce the number of applications starting with Windows, at this point do not delete the entry just prevent it from starting, you can then check what is running and what is not.
This way you will be able to tell which applications are affecting your over all performance.

Tower powering up then.beeping and not doing anything just continuous beeping inside box

NOTE: Before making any attempt to remove or replace any part inside the casing, ensure that the power is off.

Well, the first thing that might be causing this is your memory card (RAM). Try to remove it and place it in another memory slot on the motherboard.

To be sure if your motherboard is still in good working condition, remove the memory card and power on the PC.

You should hear continuous beep sounds.

If you hear this then your motherboard is fine.

If placing the memory card in another slot does not work then the problem lies with the memory card itself. You will need to replace it.

It could also be that some faulting PCI cards are causing this error.

Try to remove your PCI cards. Normally a faulting PCI modem causes this type of error. Remove it and then power on the pc.

The processor cannot be faulty but still if you want to check it, remove the CPU Cooler fan. Then turn on the PC.

Place your finger on the processor for 2 seconds. You should find the processor heating up. Then turn it off immediately. If this works then your processor is good.
Remember not to leave it ON for more than 5 secs.

Any doubts you can contact a technician through the website

ASROCK motherboard slow

The processor will generally either work or not.  

You need to load the correct video drivers for the video card embedded on the motherboard.  You need to make sure the correct drivers for anything on the mainboard are installed.  After this, figure out if it is slower than before.  

Out of curiousity, when did you change motherboards?

Windows running very slow

Have you scanned the PC (all drives) for spyware and viruses?

Spybot search & destroy is a good, free application.

For anti-virus, Trend Micro PC-Cillan or CA Internet Security
(Nortons will drastically slow down your computer)

Have you loaded any other software on the C drive?
Often programs designed to load up & run in the background at startup cause a PC to run slow.

RAM can be another culprit. 1GB minimum is best.

Hope this helps
