20 Most Recent eMachines W5243 Refurbished AMD Desktop Computer - AMD Athlon 64 3800+ 2.4GHz , 1GB DDR2, 250GB Questions & Answers

Your computer is running for sh-- because you probably have too many items starting up at boot time and running in the back ground. You have to go into your msconfig files and services,.msc files to turn off unnecessary operations. And virus programs are notorious for using up memory resources and turning computer into a snail. If you have one, get rid of it and stay off the p-rn sites.

It is not the cpu or power supply responsible for the issue. It is the user at fault for overloading the machine's resources. And a new computer will get just as bad if you continue to employ the same habits as you have with this unit.

Movie DVD's are not legal to pull information off, that is why they are copyrighted. If this is an information disk and you are not just able to drag and drop the information contact the publisher.

I don't know what machine you are talking about, but if it is a desktop computer you can pruchase a wireless adapter card or usb stick for around 20 to 50 usd, to make it wireless.

Providing this card is compatible with your system you just open the side, take out the screw or clip remove the old card and install the new one, upon boot up insert the CD that came with the card. Or let Found new hardware wizard take over.Also it's handy to have another computer nearby to serial connect to so that you may view that screen.

Looks promising. It's an INF fie which are driver files. Download, extract, and direct Device Manager where to install driver from. The worst that can happen is it won't install, or you have uninstall / delete. Better than those fake drivers you mentioned.

Check cables, connections, pins, If you have a Graphics Card, reseat it. Sound like a connection or graphics issue. Do you have a can of Electronic's Contact Spray? I use it for cleaning connector, PCI slots, etc., Where copper connections oxidation occurs. May be a simple reset or bad Graphic Card. Hard to say for sure.
