    My computer is running very slowly - i7 (quad) 266 Mhz and Geforce 9800 GTX graphics card.  I had this computer for about a year.  The problems seemed to start about 3 months when I started to play a game - Empire Total war with Steam.  The computer ran more slow and more slowly, gradually.  I tried all the clean disk, speed up programs, he worked once for a few days and then become very slow.  Finally, I backed up my files and reformat the hard drive and reloaded windows 7.  My computer has nothing loaded except windows 7 and is always very slow!

  • Sattalite Pro 6100: Very slow Windows Installation

    I have a series of Sattalite Pro 6100.
    The hard drive crashed, so I bought a new. It is 40 GB / 5700 rpm, so supposed to be slightly faster than the original equipment.
    When I placed it, BIOS did not.
    I removed it, put it back and BIOS saw him.
    I placed the Dutch Windows XP Home CD and formatted NTFS (not fast) HD full.
    After Windows took a good 3 hours to install even though it claims it should be only 39 minutes to begin with.

    The boot until Windows takes a long time.
    Operation of Windows seems slower than what I'm used to, but I have not actually used the laptop (crushed) for 2 months, I can't be sure.

    Any idea?



    It is not easy to say what is happening here. Who is the manufacturer of the HARD drive?
    I put t know if this can help, but you can do the BIOS update.
    As far as I know this unit also comes with WXP Pro. If there is no possibility try to install Recovery on that image.

  • Firefox very slow, slow and unresponsive on Windows 8.1

    Basically, everything is very slow and each action takes a long time to complete - tabs, switching takes about half a second to a full second (5 seconds if there is another tab currently loading / refreshing), by clicking the Center button of the mouse takes more time, about half a second to a second for the exactly scrolling of arrows is displayed same thing with regularly by clicking on the scroll on the right, Firefox bar pretty much freezes for about a full second before reacting to the click.

    I tried to run Firefox with addons disabled, which did not help, which I did not know that he don't would be not since this problem started before I even had the addons - pretty good the second, I installed Firefox.
    I have Firefox running on an SSD card and a new installation of Windows 8.1. I tried the two Aurora and nightly (currently using every night), both are just as slow.

    I have not tried to reset, because once again, the question was already there during my first installation of Firefox.

    Figured out what the problem is - it is a software of DisplayFusion I use to support multiple monitors which is causing the problem. I'll just get an alternative until (if ever) the question ceases to exist.

    Thanks for the help.

  • Equium A60 very slow with Windows XP SP 2

    This Toshiba unit very boots very slow, it takes forever to get started it got a software firewall installed but it is not correct that it really takes ages to boot up a laptop like this. I have searced for a few updates here, but I have not really found something. Is there a known issue with windows xp and sp 2 for this laptop?

    Do you have any adviecs?



    I had the similar problem with my Satellite P10. After installation of SP2, the startup procedure takes much longer. Check please the processes that start to run and disable some of them if you n t need them.

    Have you installed SP2 or it is also to the recovery image?

    In my opinion, it is not specific for certain just usual laptop models. My second unit (without SP2) starts a lot faster.

  • Windows XP is very slow

    My Windows XP SP3 is very slow. It freezes often. This has happened since a year now. I tried the following:

    • System restore
    • Antivirus software
    • sfc/scannow command.
    • Disk Cleanup
    • ScanDisk
    • CCleaner
    • Defrag C:
    • Clean boot
    • Last good known Configuration

    Can someone help me please? Thank you.

    You said that it always happens with a clean boot, so the question is probably related to hardware and not software.  In this case, it's probably broken memory or some other hardware fault.
