Question about ASUS PC Desktops

1 Answer

My computer is really slow and frequently crashing (program not responding). The internet takes ages to load and although just 2 and a bit years old it has been like this for most of the time. I'm thinking of copying all to another computer - a dell which is much older but much more efficient - but am worried about losing my Norton protection if I wipe the hard disk and reload. Aanay assistancae gratefully accepted. Richard Jones

Hi, my mozilla firefox is so hard to open , and it takes minutes before it opens .. what will i do ?


HI,

Sometimes it depends on your internet connection speed, if your internet connection is slow, even if its not Mozilla, it will take time for a browser to load up. If it's really your Mozilla browser, you can try to uninstall and reinstall it. Click on Start > Control Panel > Uninstall a Program and then look for Mozilla Firefox then uninstall it, restart the computer after, then Open up your Internet Explorer and on the address bar, type mozilla.com and from their website, download the Mozilla browser again. You can try to download Google Chrome as you alternative browser.


Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

My computer too slow always get the not responding reply.


Eliminate Viruses and Spyware
Step 1

Run your antivirus program. There may be something slowing your computer that you can remove. It is a good idea to run your antivirus program every week.
Step 2

Remove spyware. Run a good spyware tool at least twice a month.
Step 3

Use a pop-up blocker, if you have one. Check your antivirus program.


Dispose of the Extras

Step 1

Delete your document files for anything you no longer need. Saved pictures, audio and video files in particular can slow your computer.

Step 2

Remove unwanted programs from the Control Panel area. Old toolbars or games the kids downloaded off the Internet are a good place to start. Look for software you no longer use, such as the old printer you threw out last year.

Step 3

Clean out your email. Old messages are a constant drain on your computer's resources. Go through every folder, deleting everything you do not need. Leave no mail! Finish by emptying the Deleted Items folder.

Step 4

Turn off unnecessary programs. Check your taskbar for icons that show running programs. Disable anything you are not currently using.

Run Maintenance

Step 1

Run the Disk Cleanup tool located in your Control Panel. (Windows only. For other operating systems, please check the Resources section below.) This will remove temporary files, cookies and unnecessary components to speed up your computer.

Step 2

Defragment your computer. Defragging takes some time, but will speed your computer significantly. You can find the tool in your Control Panel. Run it monthly.

Step 3

Check for disk errors. Sometimes corrupted files slow down your computer. To find and fix these files, Go to My Computer and right-click on C drive. Choose Properties, then Tools.

Slow system, hard disk problem?


First off, get any important data off NOW. If it took 48 hours for disk check to run AND it found bad clusters your hard drive is on it's way out. Consider yourself lucky that you are getting an early warning sign. Normally computers get slow for the following reasons.
1) Infected with malware/viruses. Run free programs available from (CNET) www.download.com. These include MalwareBytes, SPybot Search and Destroy, Adaware.
2) Computer hard drive is full or seriously fragmented. Try removing unneeded programs (especially pictures) and then attempt a defragmentation.
3) Hard disk failing or getting old. Sometimes this is due to environment. Smoky, dirty or dusty environments will eventually contribute to build up of heat inside the computer and excessive heat kills computers. Also hard drives are mechanical and they do wear out over time. Laptop drives take more abuse because they are moved around more than desktops. If they start getting noisy then it is time to prepare to replace it. If you haven't done it yet GET YOUR IMPORTANT DATA OFF NOW!!!!
4) Overclocked or over heated processors. Dust buildup in the cooling fans and heat sinks can cause the temperature to rise and when processors get heated up they slow down and evenyually crash.
5) Running out of memory. As our computers get older we keep adding programs and eventually (if we dont upgrade the memory) the computer runs out of memory.
So if I were in your shoes I would do the following:
1) make sure you have any important files copied off of that hard drive. You never know when it may crash so get them off now.
2) run some of the malware removal programs I suggested (if your hard drive has the available space for them) and also run your anti-virus program.
3) Remove unneeded files from the hard drive and then run the disk defragmentation tool. I once had a customer that had jammed her hard drive full of pictures and when it crashed it had no room to rebuild itself.
4) if all that does not improve the speed then see about getting an upgrade for the memory.

AcerPower 1000 -- VERY slow loading


Your potential problem might be a virus. If you are having an updated anti-virus software and are running regular scans and found nothing, Then this might be the problem, while making the system get restored, the frequent problem is that, xp doesn't load the drivers which you installed for your system and it loads its own drives (which sometimes won't go with your devices). Try installing the drivers (especially display and motherboard drivers). If this doesn't work, I better suggest that you do a complete format of the system and install windows xp afresh.. Then there should be no problem. These're the possible solutions which i can infer from the details you've given..

Need to speed up my computer.


there are several areas that slow. you can address them one at a time.
1. internet... download and run ATF Cleaner here www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=1 -
Run it everytime you exit your internet broswer, always run it twice and look for the "no files found" message. this free program belongs on everyone's desktop and almost eliminates the need for spyware programs.
2. Programs-- go to your programs list and UNINSTALL (NOT DELETE) any old programs your not using-- if there's no uninstall for the program, do it from the add/remove software area of the control panel.
3.remove all entries from the start-programs-startup folder.. This will not uninstall programs, just keep them from starting untill you actually need them (imagaine that)
4. Start- run- type in MSCONFIG, click the startup tab at the top. uncheck all boxes for stuff like yahoo messenger, real player, quicktime....make sure you dont touch the ones for your virus programs and video and sound cards. restart the computer, asnwer ok when it says you've changed things.
5. Get a can of canned air unplug the computer from power take the side or back off the case and blow all the cobwebs out. especially the fans and metal finned heatsincs under them.
there is more , but this should speed ya up a bit.

Fujitsu Sacaleo 600 boot problems

Your registry is needs fixing.
PC's today get cluttered with more damaging data, junk, and extra files than ever. This results in poor PC performance, frequent system crashes, slow Internet connections and worse. Fortunately there are some great software downloads that you can use to fix things.
You can do two things.
1. download a registry fixer, which would be difficult for you to do since your system cannot restart.
OR
2. Reinstall your operating system. restart your computer and while it is restarting hold down the delete button. It will bring up your bios. there you can then go into your c-mos setup and change your boot settings to BOOT FROM CD FIRST. THEN HARD DRIVE..
When you finish that, press F10 to exit and save settings.
Ten insert your windows disk and restart system. Reformat the entire drive. (NOTE: YOU WILL LOSE YOUR INFO). OR you can tell it to repair .
My advise to you is when it is finish repairin. backup all your important files and follow step 2 but this time you would want to reformat the Hard Drive. (that is to wipe it clean and reinstall windows fresh.

Please let me know if this help.
