Toshiba satellite L25

I need help on making my computer run faster. I got 426mb of ram. But i cant play any games on it anymore its so slow now. Every time i try to play it just laggs like crazy on most games. (ex. Metal of Honor which needs only 200mb of ram, old game runescape. many more) i already ran super anti spyware, malware bytes and a few more. And none of them helped my gaming or computer just a SMALL bit faster.So can some one please help me out?

The pc has...
Too many processes and services running, most of them automatically loading when windows starts. To give you an idea of that, Start - Run - msconfig - gives you areas to check, processes as well as services that are running at Windows Startup. If in doubt on what a service or program is coming from in there, google really helps. I can spend an hour going thru this and say do a disc defrag and disk cleanup from Accessories - System Tools and disable non-essential services, but instead I'll jump to the real issue. Operating system degradation over time.

It sounds like you're a hardcore pc user (gamer w00t !) any hardcore pc user should once a year back up their data, format their hard drive, then re-install Windows. I'd recommend doing that, re-install your games and apps, anti-virus etc, put it EXACTLY the way you want, apply all your microsoft updates, then use ms config to shave down services and processes that you do not consider mandatory, then defrag your drive. Now lets go one better. Once that is done use Norton Ghost to image your drive. Restore your hard drive from the image twice a year and your pc will fly like a new plane. Also I'm not sure what you use for anti-virus software, but some can be a real resource hog. Choose one that uses little resources.

Happy gaming :)

Sorry,your sound card driver for windows 7 is not release by tosiba company.Even if they have release driver for Windows Vista too.It might have work.

So you won't be able to play audio sound on your laptop using windows 7.Either you need to downgrade to Windows XP or windows 2000 or you may get a new USB external sound card which support windows 7.

Toshiba satellite L25-s1194 wont boot windows


Is it giving you any error or out of the ordinary "beeping" as it is booting?
Usually the BIOS screen comes up if it cannot find an acceptable boot device.
Can you boot from an XP cd?
Can you boot into set up mode.. usually by pressing F1 or F2 on most computers. It should tell you just before the BIOS screen comes up. Enter into "set up" and make sure your boot order is correct.
You might want to reseat your RAM.
Check to see if the hard drive is coming on.

I installed a game onto my pc and now my pc runs very slow i uninstalled the game and still my computer is slow any ideas on how to make my comp faster?


Try a system restore to a previous date when the computer was working fast. Please backup all your current DATA before you do so as you may lose them.

Good Luck!

How can I make my laptop works faster?


You don't say what OS, assuming XP
I'd try the following:
Run windows disk cleanup and defrag
Run a cleanup program like ccleaner
Run a registry cleaner like regcure or eusing
If that doesn't help add more memory (you should have at least 1GB and preferably 2) or switch to Linux :-)

3 minite and above take for laptop booting © problem


Here are some things you can do that will boost your performance back to normal.
First, go into Start>All programs>system tools and run Disk Cleanup. This will get rid of all of the junk like *.tmp files that has built up. Second, in the same place after you run DiskCleanup run Defrag. This will take care of all the gaps on your hard drive so data can be found more easily. Finally you need some more RAM. 1GB these days with all the intensive programs is minimal especially if you have a 250GB HDD. Means if you load that puppy up your access time will be very slow with only 1GB. All programs load into RAM when they run, so with only 1GB your system has to constantly keep going back and forth to your hard drive to get code and that makes it very slow. Hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa. If you have any problems let me know.
