Defrag causing poor sound quality

Hi I defragged my hard drive as it was running slow (on Windows XP). Now the sound is very poor quality using either Media Player or Winamp whether playing an mp3 file, or a CD, or streaming music from the internet. Can you advise how to get the sound quality back to normal?? Thanks Steve

My computer is running very slow

Your computer is constipated. Turn off all your virus programs,stay away from porn sites, then type msconfig in the run box, hit enter, select startup and remove all checks. Reboot computer.

My computer is unresponsive or very slow nearly all the time now

When was the last time you ran disk clean up, scanned your pc for spyware and virus and finally defragmented the disks. Doing all three of these could have a big impact on the speed of it. Run all three in the order above.

Registry usb

Yes, transferring data files from your expansion drive into the computer or from the computer into the expansion drive can make your computer run slowly.
If it's music and/or movies you are transferring back and forth it's simply because the computer is using most of the processor speed and memory to do it. That's why when another program or the internet is opened your computer will appear to run slowly.
If it's just slow in recognising the contents of your expansion drive it may be due to the age of your computer.
Alternatively it may be that your computer and/or expansion drive is fragmented and has registry errors. Both of these will cause - can cause - your computer to appear slow to load.
You can defragment your hard drive from within the computer. Using Windows XP, open 'my computer' andright click on the 'C drive icon' icon and then choose TOOLS. Open the defragmenting software and let it defrag the hard drive.
To fix registry faults search for and download some free software called free Windows registry repair.
When downloaded, run the registry fixer by opening the program and click on 'scan'. Wait until the scan is complete and click on 'fix'. Job done...

My PC run slow

Usual suspect: Hard drive filling up, needs defragmenting, more ram needed to cope with the programmes you are using. IF this is a laptop, also check it is not overheating

Simplest cures for above: (Assume its Vista if not XP and 7 are similar)

1. Go to My Computer / C Drive / right click and properties
first do this: In Tools "check volume for errors" reboot and allow the check to run
secondly, as above but this time go to "defragment now". Run the defrag programme until it is complete (don't bother about surface check)

2. After doing this, then steps for above, and this time go to "disk cleanup" delete any cookies or web browsing etc.

3. Back up and remove any data or other stuff you no longer need

4. If still slow, then you might need to look at more Ram

Runs slow, i do the basic like defrag, clean disk, delet history. internet files, thing of that nature but my hp is slow like my processor is out dated or my processor is trying to hard to complete simple...

Your computer has only 512MB of RAM.That will just barely run your XP,forget about doing anything else.You need a minimum of 1GB,2GB is even better.Your computer works in RAM not your hard-drive.The hard-drive is for storage,the RAM is for running your programs.
This link is your manual and it will walk you thru the procedure.Hope this helps?

Hello there: really just looking for some solid advise this hp52w w has the original xp operating system in it with sp2 installed works ok but it gets so slow on the starting windows screen it takes...

Hello Mike, Hi, may I suggest you try first to defrag your hard drive, Im sure when you power on your PC, the hard disk led keeps on blinking, your hard drive may have developed bad tracks and sectors, this slow moving process tends to go forever.

Defragmenting and checkdisk can find faults and bad sectors and tracks that slows down the performance of your PC.

Reformatting should be done if your defragmentation procedure fails to speed up your PC.

Try to run an antivirus program, which may help speed up your PC by detecting viruses, that tends to load forever, or slow down the booting process.

To slow

Computer slowdowns have several factors.

How much memory do you have?

If its 256 or below, try adding or upgrading it to 512 mb or more. Having insufficient memory causes your computer to take some space of your hard disk as a substitute, which is a lot slower than the memory ram.

Also check how much space is available on your hard disk. About 15% of the hard disk space must be freed to prevent slowdown.

Use the Disk Cleanup tool to clean some unneeded files. Go to My Computer, then right-click the drive you want to clean up, then click Properties, and click Disk Cleanup.

Try also to defrag your files to lessen the time for the access arm of your hard disk to search/read a file. To defrag your hard disk (or other storage device), go to My Computer, then right-click the drive you want to defrag, click on Properties, then tools, and click Deframent now. Analyze first so you will know if you should defrag the volume, then defrag if necessary. Do this every month to prevent too much fragmentation of files.

Scan for virus and spyware, becuase most of them take hard disk space, memory and have high CPU usage, thus making your system slow even there is no program running. For free anti virus, try AVG. For anti-spyware, try SpyBot S&D.

Also make sure that your computer is properly ventilated. Heat could also limit the performance of your computer.
