You should NEVER run other programs when defragmenting your drive. It can be very taxing on your hard drive. As for the heat, you could use cooler pads or chill mats.

You try cleaning the laptop. Remove battery and all covers from bottom of pc. Using a can or two of compressed air, holding the can straight up and down spray into all vents and see all the dust that comes out, make sure you concentrate on the cpu fan and heat sink. Let stand for about 15 min. then re-install battery and all covers. It should run allot cooler. You can also buy a chill pad for laptops that are USB, they have cooling fans. for about 20.00

One of the causes for this might be dusty fans. You should clean them. Tutorial - link

Or, if you are afraid of breaking something, take it to a repair shop. The cleaning should only cost dew dollars. High temperature can harm your computer in long term, so think about this.

Tip

Speeding up a computer by Defragmenting Hard Drive


Is your computer running slow? Have you tried running anti-virus, anti-spyware, and anti-malware software to speed it up, but to no avail?

Perhaps cleaning up your hard drive could help. This tip will explain, in step by step instructions, how to defragment your hard drive.

To Defragment your hard drive:

1) Go to My Computer.
2) Right click on your C drive.
3) Click Properties.
4) Click the "Tools" tab at the top.
5) Click "Defragment now..." in the middle of the window.
6) In the window that pops up click "Defragment disk"
Defragmenting your disk physically moves files that are similar or
fragmented into an area that will more efficiently use your space.
5) The Disk Defragmentor will analyze your hard disk.
6) After analyzing it will move and defragment the information appropriately.
Disk Defragmentation is complete. You should see noticable improvements in your computer's speed and preformance.

My Dell Latitude D620 is constantly spiking at 100% cpu, the problem arises especially when running the mouse over any program, it basically locks down my whole computer and nothing will run, it always...


It sounds like there could be a virus on your computer that is using up all of your CPU resources. Try to monitor the processes and CPU usage, buy pushing Ctrl + Alt + Del at the same time. This will open up the Task Manager on XP, or show you a menu screen on Windows Vista and 7, and you can click on start task manager at the bottom. View all your processes and how much cpu usage is being taken up from those processes. Look for the process using the highest cpu usage when it spikes to 100% and please repost the process name!

In the mean time might I suggest running and anti-virus scan, scanning for malware, and spyware as well. If you do not have any of these programs, I would suggest using either AVG, or Avira Anti-Virus, Malwarebytes, and Super Anti-Spyware, all of which are free programs that can be downloaded here!

Copy and paste the links into your browsers address bar...

AVG-- http://www.filehippo.com/download_avg_antivirus_32/

Avira-- http://www.filehippo.com/download_antivir/

Malwarebytes-- http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/

The laptop runs erally slowly, i have tried defragging, anti-virus software, anti-spyware. I have deleted any programs i dont use and now really dont know what else i can do. Help appreciated. Thanks


run task manager by pressing CTRL + Shift + Escape
then order by CPU and you will see if there is a process that is consuming too much processor then you can end it or see what it is..
also see if you have enough ram

Why is my dell computer so slow?


Use CCleaner, Auslogic Disk Defrag, install Spyware Terminator and run full scan, remove programs from startup. You can also use "msconfig" (start/type it in, choose) to really lower the amount of processes and programs running but I wouldn't recommend unless you know what's vital plus check the box to remove all Windows processes from list before you start disabling processes.

My hp dv 9000 pavilion shows blank screen with cursor how do I fix this


These are the steps that you need to take, and the instructions on how to do it:
1. Reboot into Safemode
2. Run a virus and spyware scanner
3. Defrag
4. Scandisk
5. Registry error repairing
6.Reboot into regular mode windows

Here is how to do it:
Reboot yor machine while holding the F8 key right as it boots back up. A menu will apear. Choose -->"start windows in safe mode with networking".
Windows will start in safe mode. Run an AVG virus scan, then run Defrag by exploring your computer, right click on C: drive, click PROPERTIES, then the TOOLS tab, click the "check now" button, and only checkmark the top box 'fix file system errors', then click ok, the computer will then tell you it will scan upon next reboot., Now click the DEFRAG NOW button. the choose defrag. After Defrag runs for about an hour and it is finished, restart the system. If is still won't run normally, go back into Safemode buy pressing F8 on reboot, then run a registry fixing program such as uniblue registrybooster, then reboot again. If it still won't run right, you may want to reinstall Windows and see if that works. If reinstalling windows doesn't fix it, it is definitely a hardware problem.
PRINT THESE INSTRUCTIONS AND KEEP A COPY NEAR YOUR SYSTEM FOR FUTURE PROBLEMS. THIS SERIES OF STEPS CAN FIX MANY PROBLEMS
Good luck.

BATTERY PROBLEM WITH HP PAVILLION DV2000 LAPTOP


It seems like you might have two problems.
My main concern right now is that you might have viruses or spyware. I would clean them out first before dealing with the battery. If you have your notebook powered off and you see the battery light charging, then wait 1 hour, and then try to turn it on without the ac adapter. if it still does not work, most likely the battery needs to get replaced.

to ger rid of the spyware, i would recommend the following

adware at www.lavasoft.com and spybot and www.safer-networking.org

thanks adi

My CPU usage is constantly a hundred percent.


When system boots click start button > run > type in box "msconfig" without quotation marks. Click on "selective startup" Go up to the startup tab > click on disable all. Click on apply and ok, reboot. When computer reboots, see if the processor is still running at a hundred %, if not then one of your start up processes is the culprit. You can go back into msconfig and check just those processes that you absolutely need to start up, like a third party wireless controller, anti-virus, malware/spyware, etc., but most of those startup processes you dont need to boot up.

Cannot finish disk defrag


Hi!

Seen that before! microsofts defrag tool isent the best one if i may say so. If you have any programs running in the background it wont finnish, so you can either stop all running programs manualy and the defrag will finnish, OR you can Use another defrag tool,
Here are two:
O&O Defrag is one of the best, but its not free:
http://www.oo-software.com/home/en/products/oodefrag/?gclid=CLy7z-WPuZkCFYR_3godMXrD4w

Auslogics Disk Defrag is a good toll and its free:
http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/disk-defrag/download

Now, make your chioce and enjoy a good defrag tool:)

Good luck
