HP PC bogged down despite cleaning cache and removing old programs

I have a HP PC that I bought from Best Buy about 2 1/2 years ago, along with a 3-yr service plan. Recently, the PC is running VERY slow, is subject to shutdowns and disconnects and freeze-ups. I have run several different anti-virus programs, cleaned memory and cache and defragged the system. All of this seems to work for a few hours and then it's back to slowing down. Any suggestions?

    Will try the dust idea. Already running several programs to eliminate unused programs and to defrag/troubleshoot. All of the proposals seem like temporary solutions.

Try adaware or spybot. Your PC could also be overheating. Open the case and blow out any dust. I also would check your add/remove programs and delete an software you don't use. Hit ctrl alt del when your PC slows down and look at the running processes for what might be slowing your system down.

Hello i ave hp compac dc7600 and i want upgrade for a best processor


Hey this PC is pretty old.

What is the current chipset in it?

I have checked the specs of the Pc and it looks like this the best processor you can put int it

Intel Pentium D 950 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache,
800 MHz FSB)

Not too bad but a little behind what is currently available with the i5 - i7 models.

Check what your full model number is and region then head to this page:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12253_div/12253_div.HTML#Configurable%20Components%20-%20Select%20Models%20%28localized%20by%20Regions%29

It will show you what can and cannot be put int the system.

My Badger 5 InsinkErator garbage disposal leaks out of the seam about midway down the unit. I don't know how old it is as it came with the house I bought 3.5 years ago. Is it something I can fix?


if the inner seal is leaking -- it is best just to go and buy a new garbage disposal and install it.
normally when the seals start to go bad in the units it does start to effect other parts of the disposal,, and it is kinda a domino effect.

I've bought new HP DVD Writer 1135 i , which i have added alongwith my old LG DVDwriter (via SATA). BIOS is detecting both of them, where my system's OS, WinXP (updated with latest fixes) isn't detecting...


no PC stated, now that is hard.
its a IDE old DT PATA drive, its not new
could be NOS< new old stock was it sealed in a bag, air tight
no, then its not new, not NOS.

why use XP,. its dead OS. there are nobody making drivers for XP now, its dead now for 3 long years.
My guess is MS shut down the PnP engine (in there could)
3 years ago, so only your PC can make this drive work.
(your SP3, and your CAB files in said old PC)

HP DVD Writer 1135 i
XP 101
MUST HAVE SERVICE PACK 3 LOADED,
YOU MUST BE INTERNET CONNECTED TO GET DRIVERS
TO WORK, USING PNP , TECHNOLOGY. (if MS supports XP updates, and they say no)


best i can tell, it's a Desktop PATA IDE drive.
needs a pata ribbon and DC power jack to work
its old not new, may be new to your but it is far far from new.
does the try eject button work "? be first check.

in device, manager, you see it , right
then right click the DM line for 1135i and pick update driver.
and are connected to the internet, right:
and fails, now, means you XP is not SP3 updated
or means there is no XP driver for it.
The 2nd problem is your old HP XP computers is no longer supported at HP.com, so the DVD drivers there are long gone.
after 10 years, they go BYEBYE there.

leaving what?

XP is near useless lacking SP3,
got SP3? it also makes USB work (1/2 way)
best is upgrade to W7
or load linux. XP is DEAD !

Runs for about 5mins and screen goes grey


looks like a virus issue. or a memory issue, and or hard drive problem. to be honest, a 5 yr old pc should be let go, and buy an upgraded one. it will make your life easier and save your time and energy too. replacement parts for older computers are more expensive than buying a new computer.

Go to the retailer you bought it from and if you bought it less than two years ago you can get a new one free with the exchange of the old one only if you have the warranty

Upgrading my laptop processor


hey, your best bet is upgrading the ram, if its ddr 2 will cost about 25-30 pounds for a extra gb, which will make it run a bit smoother. noone ever upgrades processors on laptops as your usually restricted to what u can uppgrade it too or costs too much.
i would suggest the memory upgrade...

if i can help anymore just ask..

All the best

Magnavox 19 inch television floor sample tube went out


You'll need to pull out the warranty paperwork and see what it says about repairs. You'll likely need to present the proof of purchase for the warranty along with the machine, for Best Buy to start the process. To be certain you're doing it right, consult the warranty to see what to do. You can void your extended warranty if you take the machine to someone not certified to work on the machine.

HP Media Center Desktop w/XP


Why would you want to connect to Windows? Yecch. Go to OSNews.com and check around for an interesting OS and filesystem combination.

Still, I'd chalk it up to your having plugged another bootable volume into the machine (e.g. a CD ROM) or otherwise changing the setup from what you brought to GeekSquad. Honestly, you've described the problem circumstances quite poorly. Does it not beep before booting -any- OS?
