Very slow system... about every other time i boot
« on: December 13, 2007, 09:44:29 AM »
Sometimes I turn on my computer and it goes really slow, so I turn it off and restart it. Then it's fine. Pretty much every other time I start it up its slow so I don't know why it does that. anyone have a solution?

With the vast amount of info provided this may take awhile to diagnose...

    Do you have many icons show on your right-hand taskbar (include hidden ones)? Also, if you have Zone Alarm Suite or ZoneAlarm firewall installed then it could be the problem. One of my 3 computers, I installed Zone Alarm Suite and it was ver very slow whenever I turn on power and load a program, especially game. It took me 15 - 20 minutes to load from Turn on to loading game (SilkRoadOnline).

    This may be where your problem started, altogether. Who knows what do you have on your computer by now...

      Try this simple steps first.
      1. Clean all the junks from your computer by using Disk Cleanup.
          Start ---> All Program ----> Accessory ----> System tools -----> Disk Cleanup.
          Disk Cleanup ----- > Select C: or whatever drive you installed OS -------> OK ------- >
          Check all checkboxes ------> OK.

          Clean up your drive(s) at least once a week. Don't delete any log file.


      2. Defrag your disk. Make sure you have enough room in your Hard Drive. (At least 50 - 75% Free)
          Start ---> All Program ----> Accessory ----> System tools -----> Disk Defragmenter  ------>
          Select C: -----------> Click Defragment button.

      If the above steps aren't help then download a trial version of Tuneup Utility 2007
       
      http://www.tune-up.com/products/tuneup-utilities/
       
      I hope this program can help you clean up all those dead links that slow down your computer.

      If nothing solves the problem then try to remove all icons from the right hand taskbar.

      Start ---> Run ----> Enter: msconfig ------> OK ----> General tab: Click "Selective Startup". (Be sure everything there checked and select.)
      Startup tab: Uncheck all those checkboxes except anti-virus, spyware, and firewall programs -----> Click Apply ------> OK ---------> Close ------> Restart.

      Make sure you are not working on anything in your computer. If you do, Save it, before Restart your computer.

      lol ok... machine... that would be a HP Pavilion a1213w yeah thats all i know. i got it for christmas from i think walmart 2 years ago. I havent added new hardware or anything so its still as it came. No idea what happened before this, its been doing it for a while now, i dont even remember when it started.

      did the disk cleanup earlier...
      doing the eset online scanner now...
      also I dont have 50% of my HDD free so i didnt bother with defrag. crappy HDD came with the computer is only 67GB. I have 21GB Free now.

      AMD Sempron sticker on the front of computer too if that helps lol. i know next to nothing about hardware, im more into software
