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 www.ccleaner.com
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.

Pentium 4 with 2.8 ghz pc is quite a good speed pc.check some of the applications u have installed,and above all antivirus software.Try to uninstall some application software.Using a good antivirus software complete scan your system. If after then your are not getting good performance then ultimately take backup,repartiion your hard drive and install the os again.

Fan slow down and them high speed


change the fan ASAP, since the zooming noise and the slow performance will affect even the processor and you might end up replacing the processor as well if it persists. So get the fan ASAP and problem will be solved.

My pc is very low.I need fix


Slow PC does not mean it has problem only with motherboard. Speed of the PC also depend on the following factors :
  1. Processor
  2. RAM
  3. Virtual memory
  4. Operatin system
  5. Video graphics card
To fix the problem you should first check which type of processor is used in you PC. Is it pentium4, Dual core, Core 2 duo or core 2 quad ? Core 2 quad is much faster if used with 4 GB RAM. RAM is also the cause to slow the PC. If you are using less RAM automatically your PC will be slow. So use RAM higher i.e 2 GB or more.
Virtual memory does not have much impact on speed but it is also a factor to slow down the PC. But if you can correct any of the three parts then no need to check virtual memory.
If you are using operating system like Vista then computer may be slow. Instead use XP professional, Windows 7.
If your PC doesn't have graphics card then it will be slow while playing games, watching videos. So if you are a game lover then change your graphics card with higher value such as 2 GB or more.
If you will fix these problems then you can speed up your PC

I have Dell GX280 system. My Fan produces more sounds and runs fast. System Hangs while processing and performs slow, causes processor nore hot. I pasted the Heat Sink Paste on processor that resuls in low...


More than likely your fan needs to be replaced. These small form factor Dells are know for problems like this. Warning! Do NOT attempt to blow out the CPU fan with canned air, as this will likely lodge dust particles in the axis of the fan causing it to drag and become louder!

Game Sluttering


Many reasons for game to stutter. 1. Virus can slow down your pc performance - run virus scan 2. Overheating issue with processor fan - blow out the fan with compressed air 3. Overheating video card - blow out video card 4. Lots of programs running in the background - ctrl+alt+del then check how much RAM is being used and how many processors If these above problem solutions to much i would just reinstall OS and blow out the fans. 5.
