Notebook runs any Hard Drive noisily and slowly

Q: Notebook runs any Hard Drive noisily and slowly

Hi,

Got two Vostro 1500's. The hard drive for one of them was running very slow & noisy with consistently high disk usage. I ran a long drive test with Seagate tools and the result was fine. I tried to swap the drives between the two laptops and same problem occurs with the faulty laptop even with the new drive. The old drive in the other laptop is running smoothly. I tried a third different HD in the faulty laptop and that also is not running nicely.

So I know that the drives are fine but what could be causing the faulty laptop to not run hard drives properly?

Thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My computer runs slowly and my hard drive is almost full, however I cannot find any more files to delete. Do I have a virus? Is there malware? Can you help me?
Thank you.

A:External SATA III USB hard drive runs slowly, how to test speed?

Data transfers to USB drives do seem to be slower than transfers to internal drives and I also have slowness with the front USB 2.0 ports. I use this product in my computer:
4-port USB 2.0 High Speed Front-Bay Hub - Black | C2G
Power comes from the PC's power supply and the data cable plugs into a port on the rear.
Haven't gotten a similar product for USB 3.0 ports yet but this page shows several:
https://duckduckgo.com/?q=usb+3.0+in...ub&ia=products
With Notebooks now including eSATA ports on some models I'm starting to think about that for my one Desktop that could use such a drive.

Hi!

I have a problem with my notebook. It's an Acer Aspire 7530.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview ran without any problems; the drivers needed (especially for the graphics card) were downloaded automatically.

Now I installed Windows 8 Release Preview, but Windows Update does not install the graphics card driver, thus it runs really slowly and is unusable :/ Installing the drivers manually won't do a thing (even if the installer exits without problems). Even re-installing the whole OS (means formatting the partition and perform a clean install) didn't work.

Maybe some of you can help me!

The graphics card is an Nvidia GeForce 9600 M GS.

One more information: It says, the driver used for the screen is the standard "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter", although the driver for the graphics card is installed.

Thank you very much in advance!

Hello Teha, and welcome to Eight Forums.

The 304.79 beta NIVIDIA drivers work well for me in Windows 8 for the same graphics chip. You might give them a try to see if they will for you as well.

Hope this helps,

Alright More than a year ago I installed Hard Second Drive On XP. Running Slowly a second GB hard drive into my Dell Dimension which was at the time running Windows XP to go with my main hard drive another GB Now my initial plan was to move over all of my quot media quot files that were taking Second Hard Drive Running Slowly On XP. up space music movies and photos from the main hard Second Hard Drive Running Slowly On XP. drive to the second one so they wouldn't be cluttering up my primary drive However I found myself incapable of doing this because for whatever Second Hard Drive Running Slowly On XP. reason the second hard drive ran slowly Like really slow So slow that when you browse through it in Windows Explorer everything lags and moves at like the speed it's supposed to Obviously this meant that any audio or video files stored on said hard drive wouldn't work very well I tried it anyways copying a few music files over which took a long time and of course they didn't work too well In both musikCube my audio player of choice and Windows Media Player the files played very slowly and basically quot skipped quot even when nothing but Windows Media Player was opening And when I was actually trying to use the computer with MSN Messenger Firefox etc open with the music files playing it was even worse So I decided to just forget it and keep my or so gigs worth of audio video on my main drive but use the spare one to back up important text documents and pictures so at the very least they'd be safe I lived like this thinking the drive was just junk and really slow up until a few days ago when I decided to give Vista a go on my system my brother bought it for me as a belated Christmas gift I was surprised to find out that on Vista my second hard drive worked perfectly Before I couldn't even run music files from it but on Vista it seemed to work just as well as my main drive However my system is not that powerful and Vista doesn't run as quickly as I'd like it too so I'd like to have my Windows XP back But I've got all of my audio and video files on the second hard drive and they work perfectly but obviously they won't when I switch back to XP I've reformatted XP a few times since getting the drive and it's been the same story each time But now that I know the hard drive itself has nothing wrong with it and I suppose it's something with XP that's making it behave badly I'm wondering if there's something I can do to make the drive work as fast in XP as it does in Vista Whew That was a bit too long Thanks in advance EDIT - This was posted in the XP forum and not the Hard Drive forum because it seems to be more a problem with XP than the drive itself If this is the wrong place yeah I apologize

A:Second Hard Drive Running Slowly On XP.

Hey,

Got a question... what kind of drive do you have for you secondary HDD? Some SATA's have a jumper that you can put on that will make it operate at a second, slower speed. Make sure that the jumper is not on and it should operate faster (if this is a SATA drive and this jumper is on).

Regards,

Brandon

RESOLVED. It turns out I had to install the SATA drivers for my new motherboard. The odd thing about this though, was I read that if you didn't have the right drivers, windows wouldn't detect the drive when trying to install the OS, which I didnt have problems with. Anyways. Off to post my new problem! Lol

After my computer sits idle for about five minutes, the hard drive light starts flickering. The drive will continue to run for minutes at a time, being off for only short intervals.
I suspect a virus, but I have the latest updates of Norton Antivirus 2002 installed, and no virus is detected. I have closed all programs unnecessarily running in the background.
I use Windows ME, have a cable modem, and use ZoneAlarm.
There appears to be some process running in the background. How can I identify and remove it?

Thank-you for the assistance!

A:Hard drive fills up slowly at five minute intervals?

There is an application which comes installed on some machines (I can't remember which manufacturer) that periodically takes dumps of the system, the idea being to be able to restore in the event of disaster. Perhaps it's on yours?

I'd have a look with Process Explorer (from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx) to see what's running. Also, using that, if you watch it over a five minute span you'd likely see one of the processes leapng into action and doing domething with cpu and disk activity.

My harddrive runs continually, every few seconds for a few seconds. I've been seeing this for a couple of

weeks. I've checked for viruses, run Malwarebytes, fixed registry errors etc but nothing stops the

continual running. The only new things installed recently are an HP 5510 network printer and Windows

Live SkyDrive for syncing files between computers. I've tried running msconfig, task manager, services.msc and Process

Explorer and these show me all the services and startup programs installed or running but not what is

accessing my HD right now. CPU usage is usually less than 5% and system is only somewhat slowed

when screen circle inidcates drive is running. Is there something else I can do to determine what is causing

the constant HD activity? System is Win 7 Home Prem 64 bit with 6 GB ram and I-3 processor. HD is

Hi

First posting. I have an HP zv6000 with win xp sp2, amd64 3200. often when I am surfing, and sometimes when playing or working off the net, the hard drive sounds as if it goes into a loop. No other programs are running. The processes in Task Manager shows only the system idle process as spiking.

The functioning of the entire unit slows considerably. Any ideas on how to prevent or stop this? I am not terribly technical,but follow directions well.

thanks for any help

A:hard drive runs in circles?

johnpsyc, welcome to TSG. Can you explain a little more about the "loop"? What does the sound resemble? Clicks, whining, or what?

My hard drive keeps running for about 15 minutes after each start up. It seems to be reading or writing something. I have Norton Antivirus 2005 fully updated. I know it isn`t that program running. How can I find out what is running on my hard drive after each start up? I understand that programs start up when you start Windows XP but all programs and my desktop are already loaded and then my hard drive just keeps running as if it is loading something but nothing seems to load. It runs for 15 minutes erratically after windows and my programs start. Must be a way to monitor what the hard drive is doing when this happens. Any suggestions?

I am running Windows 7 and have a 500 gbyte Fantom external hard drive which starts running spontaneously. I go to task manager and no software is running. Once this hard drive starts running without any known input from me it does not stop.

Is there anything I can do about it?

My T30 Thinkpad, running XP, 1G ram, hard drive runs intermittently and way too often. Even when the system is idle, it runs. When it runs, that holds up other programs, such as typing this post. Any ideas on how to fix this? Someone said it's a part on the motherboard, that was designed to power down the hard drive when not in use, that has malfunctioned. Does that make sense? Thank you.

A:Hard drive runs continually and too often.

If the motherboard is to blame, I would suggest getting a USB enclosure (USB devices have the "Allow this device to shut-off to conserve power after x amount of time" feature). That way, you can somewhat configure how you want your HD to run. However, something you may want to try first is to right click on the desktop, select properties, go to the screen saver tab, click the power button. There should be an option in there that allows you to set how long the HD runs before the system shuts it off. But if this is the function that has malfunctioned like you said, then you'll have to try something else, I'm not sure what your exact problem is.

Just wondering about any tips on settling down the hard drive always running. You can hear it going almost 90% of it's on time. Cleaning inside? or any other suggestions. Thanks.
 

A:Hard drive runs all the time

Do you have an anti-virus program or anything that runs in the background at system idle? It sounds like you have something running at idle, or possibly some kind of virus or spyware running. I'd recommend doing a virus and spyware scan if you haven't already.

Since my Gateway DX200X's old hard drive is on the verge of failing, I've purchased a 1TB WD Green internal hard drive and installed Windows XP SP2 on it. While I'm now facing the predictable problem of how to transfer my various old programs and settings to this new OS without having to reinstall everything, I've run into another problem which has to be addressed right now:

My computer is now running at an agonizingly slow speed. I took a look at the graphs in the Processes tab of the Task Manager, and it seems like my CPU's power usage jumps as high as 100% even when I do something as basic as moving a window. Is my computer just not powerful enough to handle a larger hard drive, or is this model of hard drive just really slow?

When I boot my system, my hard drive appears to run non stop for more than 10 minutes. This is even before I log in to the system.

After logging in I see that CCSVCHST.EXE has an enormous amount of I/O reads and writes. After my machine is running for a while, the numbers get even worse.

Right now CCSVCHST.EXE shows 2:17:17 CPU time, 77,200,495 I/O Reads and 3,489,307 I/O Writes.

I realize that this is part of Nortons protection but are these numbers out of the ordinary?

I appreciate any help you may be able to provide. My hard drive will run for several minutes after I boot up and everything is loaded. It will also begin to run when I am just at the desktop and not running any programs. It runs for several minutes and then stops. I look at task manager and it does not show anything running. I also look at the network to see if anyone has tapped in but I do not see anything but my 2 pc's listed. Is this normal?

Try installing on a different, clean formatted HDD.

Are you sure that 40 GB drive is SATA? Or is it IDE?

Make sure you have motherboard chipset drivers installed.

My PC running XP Pro SP2 with recent updates is getting too slow since these past 2 months. It has gotten worst lately, after XP boot and finishes loading the desktop, i have to wait about 3-4 minutes before XP fully loaded programs at system tray (AVG, ATi, SafeChild etc). When i open Task Manager, i noticed the 'peak' under 'commit charge' was about 1304120 and i only have 768mb ram installed. It doesnt make sense, the PC just getting started, and it already eaten up too many memory. I dont have any memory hunger programs like norton, macromedia etc. I've done a repair install but it still running too slow. Check out the image below

Hi!

I recently formatted my drive and installed a copy of WinXP, and since day one I've had a couple of problems. The computer does not manage multitasking very well, causing it to work slowly. What can be wrong?

I do also have problems getting my mouse and keyboard to work. Both are USB. I had to connect the mouse to a ps/2 converter to make it work properly. The keyboard does only work well as long as the mouse uses this converter. Both cannot be connected to USB.

I also have in my device manager something that's called a PCI Simple Communications Controller which shows a yellow "?" (no driver assigned). What can this be?

I hope someone can help me out on this. Thanks in advance!

This is my first time posting but I always go here for help I recently installed a new GB HGST hard drive because my now recently VERY runs CPU Hard high replaced, drive factory drive failed For the first few days everything was working fine but now after about minutes of use any program that I run as a user will take make my laptop run VERY slow to the point where I have to shut it down and wait ten minute before use I cannot determine if this could be a problem related to the Hard drive recently replaced, CPU now runs VERY high hard drive I placed in the laptop or if it is a software issue The programs that usually slow my laptop are video watching happens very fast and long term use Additionally when my laptop slows it is very warm to the touch so could this be an overheating issue I am running windows home premium bit an intel i processor Gz GB of ram and the new hard drive an HGST Travelstar Z K HTS A E GB RPM MB Cache SATA Gb s quot Internal Notebook Hard Driv My antivirus is Microsoft security essentials Thank you for any help you can give

A:Hard drive recently replaced, CPU now runs VERY high

Welcome Doc1,
Was the original hard drive a 7200 rpm drive or 5400 rpm? The higher rpm will run hotter and use more power. The other aspect that comes to mind is when was the last time you blew the lappy out with air. When you replaced the drive how accessible was the rest of the laptops guts? Some are wide open making cleaning a snap and others are hidden so you'll need to blast air from the intake and watch for dust out the exhaust. I would get in the habit of doing this at least twice a year and or if left on or dusty/animal dander present then more often.

First of all sorry if the is the wrong forum area, first time poster.

The other day the hard drive for my laptop crashed so I bought a new one and installed it, but ever sense I have installed the new hard drive and installed Windows my computer has been running really slowly. Does anyone have any idea as to what might be the issue? My specs are as follows:
Windows 7 64bit
Intel i3 2.27GHz
4GB RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730
Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid Drive
It is a prebuilt Alienware m15x and so I am having a hard time finding the Motherboard.
If any other information is needed I will gladly do my best to find it. Thank you in advance.

A:Installed New Hard Drive and now Computer Runs Slow

The most common cause of problems for a New Install is that the User (you) did not install the motherboard drivers.

It appears your alienware laptop is being supported by Dell. Here's is the link to the driver download section for your m15x laptop:

Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]

Another way motherboard drivers are referred to is "chipset" drivers. Check Device Manager (click "show hidden devices") to make certain that all of your hardware has drivers installed.

I have a Dell Vostro 1500 notebook computer running Windows XP. Approximately a month ago it started doing tasks VERY slowly, even though Task Manager showed very little memory being used and the CPU usage almost nil. Eventually I noticed my hard drive light was regularly lighting up even when I was not actively using any programs, and that when the light was on, even the keyboard was very slow to operate. This condition continues and every program is affected.

HELP! I am tempted to throw my computer through my 12th floor window.

I have gaming laptop from Msi that lasted less than a year. I believe that my hard drive is badly made due to the laptops being mas produced. I also have two other built in hard drives that are not being used,I'm wondering how I can deactivate the faulty hard drive and run win 7 on one of the other hard drives. please help me!

A:How can I change which internal hard drive runs windows 7?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums.

I'm not sure I understand. These two internal hard disks are in another computer? What operating system is running on this other computer?

Be aware that you can't transfer the MSI Windows installation to another computer for two reasons:

1. It probably won't run.
2. Microsoft does not allow transfer of OEM licenses between computers.

Also, please fill out your system specs completely, so that we can help you better.

An application on my computer intermittently runs very slowly and regularly indicates "Not Responding". Yet sometimes it works just fine.
What might be the cause of this, and how could I go about rectifying the problem.
All help will be appreciated, as it is getting very annoying.

Quick update:
I've discovered that actually firefox will only work for about 5-10 minutes after logging in. After that clicking a link opens a page but with no URL in the address and putting a url in manually ends up in an invalid syntax error.

I have what ought to be a fast computer. 3.5 ghz processor, 8 gig memory, SSD. But when I right-click on the desktop it takes 4 seconds for the context menu to appear. It takes 8 seconds to open Excel. After clicking on the volume control icon it takes 5 seconds for the slider to appear. I can't believe it's normal for Windows to have such poor responsiveness.

In Resource and Performance Monitor the only thing unusual is it mentioned WMPNetworkSvc as being an Abnormally Stopped System Services. But that service is stopped.

What can I do to resolve this?

Thanks much for all help.

A:My computer runs slowly

Hello again,

Thanks for providing the proper logs. We now have a better idea.

Please uninstall the following programs:

Search Settings 1.2 <========== is a foistware. More info here


Java(TM) 6 Update 7 <========= outdated, therefore a security risks having it installed still. Unfortunately, Java does not uninstall these older versions when you update, nor tell you that you should. Java(TM) 6 Update 15 , however, can be updated from the Java control panel Start > Control Panel (Classic View) > Java (looks like a coffee cup) > Update Tab > Update Now. An update should begin; follow the prompts.

LimeWire 5.1.2 <========This practice can make you vulnerable to data and identity theft. Please read this sticky:

Perils of P2P File Sharing

I would strongly urge you to remove it via Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel as suggested in our
NEW INSTRUCTIONS - Read This Before Posting For Malware Removal Help page.


Quote:




p2p programs like uTorrent, Bittorrent, LimeWire, Morpheus, etc., as they are a major conduit for malware and a likely source of your current issues. See this link





===========================================

Since you already have HijackThis installed, please scan with it again and put a checkmark against the following entries, if still present:

The rest are optional - if you want to remove the lot, check "Select All".

Finally click Empty Selected. When you get the "Done Cleaning" message, click OK.

If you use the Firefox or Opera browsers, you can use this program as a quick way to tidy those up as well.

Ever since I changed the fan on my video card my computer runs slower. At first, I was getting even hotter readings on my video card than with my old card. Now, I leave the computer next to an open window and get reasonable temperatures, but my computer still runs slower. This all happened after I replaced the fan. Anyone know why?
 

A:Computer Runs Slowly

the fan may not be rated for that video card. what kind of video card do you have? what kind of fan did you buy? is it copper? copper fans are way better because they are more conductive. did you use the thermal grease when you installed the fan?

Just a thought,but have you thought about disabling startup items that you don't need to start on bootup.Having too much stuff in there can slow your system down dramatically.The only things I allow to start on bootup on my machine are my anti virus and firewall.

Also go here:http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm
and check out the service configurations,there are a lot of services that you can disable to help your system run better and faster

I have a Dell Dimension 4700C running Windows XP Pro SP3. About a month ago my PC was infected with the Internet Security 2010 virus. I believe that I cleaned the virus. However, since then my PC seems to run slowly.

I scan using Adware Free, Spybot and Malware bites and there is no malware or spyware. I use AVG Free for virus scan, no viruses detected.

I tested the unit on PC Pitstop and I see that at times the RAM utilization is over 80%. When I looked at the processes running I noticed that there were two instances of Interenet Explorer running.....one consuming 53 MB of RAM and a second one consuming 102 MB of RAM. Could this be causing some of my issues?

What info would be needed to look into the problem further?

Hello all,

I'm after some help/advice please?

I have a Compaq Mini Netbook with windows XP installed on it. I would like to sell the netbook however I obviously want to erase my hard drive of any personal data etc and restore the NetBook to factory settings (as in when I bought it new) and leave windows on for the potential buyer!

As with most netbooks it doesn't have a CD drive and already came with windows XP installed. Can anybody give me any insight into how I can accomplish this please?

I would be really grateful for any advice given!!

Thanks,
Scott

Hello, my hard drive won't stop running, at least i can hear the fan running all the time, and now outlook won't even send anything, I took norton off as was advised here, and installed avg free, but need some help!!!

Hello and Welcome to TSF

First lets scan your system with these programs

Scan your pc with one of these free online scanners:
Panda ActiveScan
RAV AntiVirus
Housecall. Be sure to put a check the box beside AutoClean.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Download / Install / Update / and Run:
Adaware SE check for any updates before running it.
Get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. You can download it at this SITE
To run this tool, install to the hard drive, then open Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection.

Download and install Spybot S&D . Run Spybot and click on the 'Search for Updates' button. Install any updates that are available. Next click on the 'Check for Problems' button. Let it run the scan. If it finds something, check all those in RED and hit the Fix Selected Problems button. Exit Spybot. If you keep getting the DSO Exploit entries, even after you updated Windows and fixed them, then download the Spybot DSO Exploit Fix and install it over the current Spybot installation.

Secondly, your hard drive dont have a fan but I understand you are hearing the fans spinning constantly. Can you see the hard drive light constantly green?

The reason you may not be able to send anything via email is the email scanner in AVG is not correctly set.
How are you connected to the internet? Dial-up/cable/dsl?
Click on the email scanner/properties in AVG, in the General tab click on I beleive it is advanced or properties. It should say if the email scanner is to LAN or Dial-up, change to suite your needs.

Also, if your Norton Anti-virus was working properly I dont suggest uninstalling ecspecially if you have a valid subscription. You were paying for the service so why not keep it untill it runs out then you could have chose to install a different anit-virus program.

Let me know if this has helped.

Right, I have a Seagate 250GB external hard drive that runs through a USB port on my Windows XP laptop.

The Hard drive Runs a auto 'Sleep' Mode after about 10 - 15 mins of not being accessed manually through the OS Folders. It then has to 'Wake-up' again which is affecting the way programs, music etc are run off of it.

Ive contacted Seagate and they say there isn't a way to disable this function, but there has to be something that can keep it 'awake' all the time.

So i thought I'd ask you guys, Hope you can help me.

Thanks

Dell Optiplex GX280, Windows XP Pro, MS Office 2000 Pro
All issues started within the past 24 hours
1. Try to open MS Outlook, error message, "OUTLOOK.EXE - Application Error", "The instruction at "0x02b80df3" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read". etc.
2. Open MS Word, Visual Basic.net tries to install but it's already installed and was working fine until now.
3. Sometimes the hard drive will start running as if searching for something and will do this for many minutes then stop. Usually happens with a browser window open (I only use Firefox, doesn't matter how many tabs open)

Just ran Hijackthis, have log file

Thanks for any assistance!

Hi all,

I have an HP Pavilian 64-bit laptop running Windows 7.

When I start my computer and the hard-drive light is no longer continually on, things are find for about 10 seconds. And I can start programs as expected. But about 10 seconds after this the hard-drive light goes on continually, and Windows starts running slow and even hangs up and won't accept commands. It hangs up for about 10 minutes and then the hard-drive light goes back to its normal occasional blinking. So in effect, my computer becomes useless for the first 10 minutes after I start it. But after that runs fine.

This problem does not occur if I start in Safe Mode where the computer become useful within a minute of starting, and there is no unwanted continual hard-drive activity.

I've tried using msconfig.exe to disable all start-up services, but the 10 minute hang-up still occurs. What can I do? Thanks.

Mike

A:Win7 64-bit hangs at start for 10 min while hard-drive runs continualy

When you used msconfig, did you disable ALL from startup tab and all NON Microsoft services from the services tab?

Also if this is possible for you to do, soon as your laptop logs on, right click the taskbar > click start task manager > go to performance tab > click Resource Monitor at the bottom > then click CPU tab.

Then sort the order of highest CPU usage by clicking the CPU filter so your screen should look like this.

Then watch and record what is running when your PC is in slow-mode. Take a print screen

I've looked all over for help but alas; nothing.

Put simply, I'm using a decent Lenovo B560 laptop, and when playing games or running programs linked to the hard drive disk, it freezes intermittently.

Not sure what's causing it, but the whirring of the disk drive can be heard for about 3 seconds, at which point it slows down, and then the game freezes until the hard drive starts whirring again. It doesn't seem to be able to keep itself running in order to keep playback fluid; it just keeps spinning long enough to power 3-4 seconds of playback.

Any ideas?

System is 7 64 bit, with Intel Core i5 CPU M480 @
2.67GHz
3GB RAM

A:Laptop hard drive runs for 3 seconds, stops, and causes freezing

Normally when a disk is making noise it's going to quiet soon. I would make a backup of what ever you want to save.
You can run a disk check up.
Computer and pick what drive you want to check and right click on it. Pick tools and check/disk. On my computers I do it the simple way. If a hard disk is making unusual noises I replace it. First save what you can before it quiets completely.

I am just recovering from what I think was a virus attack that wiped out many of my data files and screwed up the Master Boot Record. I now have it up and running, but Word is running VERY slowly (approx 20-30 seconds from activation to having the document accessible - this was previously 5-10 secs)

Any ideas on how to make it run faster? Most applications seem to be running slower, but Word appears to be hit worst.

I am running Win98 with Office Pro 97

Thanks

A:Computer Runs Slowly At Times

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems. I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster. NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of hartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer. NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.Security CheckDownload Security Check by screen317 from here.Save it to your Desktop.Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.Run Combofix:You may be asked to install or update the Recovery Console (Win XP Only) if this happens please allow it to do so (you will need to be connected to the internet for this)Before you run Combofix I will need you to turn off any security software you have running, If you do not know how to do this you can find out >here< or >here<Combofix may need to reboot your computer more than once to do its job this is normal.You can download Combofix from one of these links.Link 1Link 2Link 3 1. Close any open browsers or any other programs that are open.2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts. When finished, it will produce a report for you. Note 1: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stallNote 2: If you recieve an error "Illegal operation attempted on a registery key that has been marked for deletion." Please restart the computer"information and logs"In your next post I need the following

I'm not sure if this is more related to my Windows 7 Home Premium edition, or my HP Pavilion Elite HPE computer model, but recently I shut down my computer normally, and the next day when I turned it on, it could not reboot on its own. After being unable to get it to launch windows for a bit, I went to work. Upon returning from work, the issue still existed. I was finally able to execute a "system restore" using the "fix" the computer said I needed to get it to boot up.

Now my computer boots up very slowly, and performs every task very slowly. The internet is a bit slower, I can't even access certain games that I used to be able to run on it. They just don't start. If anyone has any tips about how I can fix this issue, please let me know!

Thanks

Hello EightForums,

I'm having strange issues where my computer just takes a long time to load things.

For example, I used to be able to run half a dozen programs (and four or five tray icons processes) just fine and everything would run smoothly. But now for some reason, running just two or three is causing huge performance issues. Microsoft Word 2013, Zune, Steam, CyberLink PowerDirector, Skype, Google Chrome, and all Adobe products.

You can check my system specs, but I recently wiped my hard drive and installed Windows 8 Pro fresh and I don't understand why this is happening now.

A contributing factor might be that I only have 235 GB left out of my 1 TB? But I don't feel like that should be doing it...

Anyway, let me know if you have any clues. I'll answer your questions.

Regards,

David

A:Windows 8 Machine runs slowly

Test memory and hard drive?

Specs indicate system should run very well, certainly not slow as you mention. Since you did a reinstall, that pretty much excludes the OS. That leaves hardware.

Download Memtest86+ (you want the 2nd one Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)). Unzip it then create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called ImgBurn which will do this easily.

DO NOT burn the .iso file directly to CD. It must be used as input to a program that knows what to do with it, like the one I mentioned above.

You can do this on any computer that has a working CD Burner.

You can also use a Flash drive instead of a CD.

Download - Auto-installer for USB Key (Win 9x/2k/xp/7) *NEW!*.
Unzip and run Memtest86+ USB Installer.exe.
It will format the flash drive if you tell it to. I used a small, 16MB flash drive and it had 8.5GB left when done.

Boot the CD or Flash drive and run Memtest86+ for at least 3 complete passes unless it shows errors sooner than that. An overnight run is even better.

Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.

Hello, My PC has 500 GB hard drive that is about 55 percent full at present.  I would like to install a second working drive -- either SSD or regular.  I would connect it via USB 3.0.  Is this possible?

A:Can I add a second hard drive to my Notebook PC?

Yes, you can easily attached an external hard drive via USB 3.0A better option may be to replace your existing Optical Drive Bay/DVD drive with a Hard Drive Caddy.  If you found my answer helpful please say thanks by clicking on the Thumb's Up icon.        If my answer solved your problem please mark it as the Accepted Solution.

Hi,

I have installed a new hard drive in my HP Compaq nx6125 notebook. I am also trying to do a clean install of Windows 7.

The new hard drive is 149 GB, larger than previous hard drive.

I am receiving the following error message while trying to install...

"Windows cannot be installed to this disk. Ensure disk's controller is enabled in computer's BIOS menu"

Windows 7 detects new hard drive.

Can someone please help me? Thank you!

TJ
