Noticeable speed change + HD issue

Q: Noticeable speed change + HD issue

I recently reinstalled XP on my computer after erasing my entire HD, the problem is that it seems to be a lot slower for some things. For example, when I open a folder and drag the window across the screen, it's extremely laggy, when it used to be perfectly fine and smooth. Or when I scroll down on a webpage, it's also very slow and the frame rate, I guess, is horrible.

I suspect this might be because the Windows partition is 5GB instead of 30GB on my HD.

Also, I have a USB mass storage device and windows has made it the C:\ drive, and the internal HD is now J:\ How do I correct this?

Preferred Solution: Noticeable speed change + HD issue

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.)

You disconnect the external hard drive and then do a full re-install of Windows and during it you make it do the drive C:\ First backup any important data and format the drive that the Windows XP is installed on now.

Here are instructions on doing a full install of Windows XP

I was hoping to get some opinions on how much improvement you would see if you would increase your RAM from 128MB to 256MB. We have a branch office who is connected via a vpn connection to our remote servers. The connection is 512 Kbps and they are connecting to a published application via Citrix and they also run locally on their systems Excel and a Web based email service. One of the employees decided to add another stick of 128MB RAM to their machine and they say it is significantly faster. They are proposing that they need to have more RAM added for all their systems now. I would imagine that the systems would be a little bit faster but not very noticeably faster. What do you guys believe?

Thanks,

I have four computers that are connected at any given time to the home network. I believe have two issues here.

The first, all of the computers connect and surf the Internet at very slow speeds. Sometimes it seems like I'm back on Dial-up. My MacBook (which is my main computer I work from) connects to the Internet with an Ethernet cable directly into the DSL box. Even if I turn the other three computers off in the office I still run slow on the Internet. Any thoughts on how to improve this? My DSL provider says its an issue with our setup. Great thanks for the help!

Second, my Mac overall seems to be running very slow. I have over 14GB of available space so I would not think that the computer is in overload.

Any support would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Moving at turtle speed - Internal Network issue or DSL issue?

If you have more than one computer, and all exhibit the same symptoms, it's hard to believe they're all bad.
Pick one that doesn't exhibit any other issues and do this:

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

Considering a couple laptops and honestly I have no idea how windows would run on a low performance system I miss XP that would run on anything Anyway so my options I was looking at was a notebook that has quot laptop with GB of emmc space with gb of ram or a quot with gb of emmc in more noticeable What windows 10? be would space but only gb of ram How much ram does win need What would be more noticeable in windows 10? to function well Both laptops are powered by a Intel n So does the lack of storage space make a bigger difference or will the gb of ram hold it back Windows and feel like tablet OS s compared to everything else I ve used so I have no idea Going to have multiple tabs up and running word processing netflix and couple steam games like Shell Shock Live I read somewhere that you can t install programs on SD cards in windows is that true If say I add a SD card for additional storage Thanks nbsp

A:What would be more noticeable in windows 10?

i have absolutely not benchmarks or really anything good to base this on. but i would almost guess windows 10 after some adjustments. Windows 10 have memory compression which can help elevate low memory issues and reduce swapping. but i have no idea if there is some other counter effect from something else in win10.
Windows 7 however runs fine on 4gb ram. 1gb not so much. ( just tried that today)

im planning on getting a hp pavillion notebook series 1000 but it has a CPU of 1.5 GHz (Celeron M 370). Normally i wouldn't care so much, but my desktop computer right now has a CPU of 2.00 GHz, and it goes pretty damn slow. so im wondering whether i should have a hp pc custom built from scratch in order to get a CPU (Pentium M 725 or higher), or does increasing the GHz from 1.50 to 1.60 really matter all that much, i mean worth for an extra 50 bucks and a week of waiting?
i would also like to know the gigahertz of CPUs you guys use most often. please help me on this. thanks.

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit system that's been exhibiting periods of unusual slowness for the hardware I have.

It's a gaming system with an i7 quad-core processor and 6GB of tri-channel memory, which I also use for email, Internet, etc.

It was lightning fast when purchased two years ago but has slowed very gradually and now has noticeable slow episodes from time to time,

not just at boot but when using the Internet, retrieving email, processing documents, using Windows Explorer, etc.

I did thorough virus scans, disk cleanup and defrag, but it still hesitates a bit here and there. I suspect malware of some kind. I manually control

some startup services so I don't think I have that bogging the system. Can someone help me find out if something rotten has crept in?

Thanks, Gary

Spybot SD (1.6) tells me that it cannot get rid of Smitfraud. I tried the Smitfraudfix tool (probably shouldn't have without guidance), but Spybot still tells me that the Smitfraud malware is there. Here's my HJT log. Any suggestions will be most welcome.

P.S. When I signed into bleepingcomputer today I did NOT see the security lock icon in my browser window. Do you not use encryption on your sign-in page?

(Log removed - Problem resolved 8/8/08)

A:Smitfraud - Otherwise No Noticeable Problems

After researching this problem on Spybot's Web site, I have reached the conclusion that Spybot is giving me a false positive on Smitfraud. I have never had a false positive from Spybot on any computer before, so I it is with some reluctance that I submit this post. However, this computer has displayed none of the symptoms that go with Smitfraud. The sad news is that Smitfraudfix has erased the wallpaper I had on the desktop and now I can't find it again. Oh well.

-Edit- I am not sure what has changed. I ran adaware. Then I ran Smitfraud.exe one more time. Now Spybot is coming up clean 8/8/08.

I am still wondering why bleepingcomputer's login page does not show encryption. Does anyone have an answer on that question?

For a while already on my Win7 system there's a problem that various disk reads take a couple seconds to start. It is most noticeable in games, where a game expects e.g. an audio to be streamed from the drive instantly, yet on my system the actual audio often starts playing a second or two afterwards (either causing a freeze or various weird de-syncs). It does not happen every time but approximately once in a few minutes (randomly).

It happens both to games on my SSD and to games ony mt HDD.

What can I look into regarding that?

In the past week, I've noticed by computer performs certain functions a great deal more slow than previously. When emptying the recycle bin, it lurches along with the processor making that crunching noise for about 20 seconds or so. Also happens with opening up IE even though my start page is set as blank.

There weren't any noticeable changes in the last couple of weeks that I can remember. I did get on with GMail recently and I'm getting tons of pop-ups now.

Any advice?

Hi there-
I was hoping someone could help me. I pay for a service for 512K wireless, but Im running slow. I have 2 computers hooked to a netgear router- when i go to my local area connection it always says speed 100.0 mdps. How do I bump up the speed? Ive looked through the router settings and local area connection - havent found anything. I would appreciate any help.
Thank you
Karena
 

A:how to change speed

You are comparing apples and oranges. The 512k wireless speed you have and the 100 mbps speed are totally different. The 100mbit speed is your local network speed, it has nothing to do with the Internet speed.

I would guess you bump up your speed by buying faster service.

Tipster advised me to,"Just make sure you set the Network cards to 1000mbps instead of Auto."
I recently bought a new router--Netgear WNDR3700.
I'm running Vista Home 64 bit on a Gateway FX6800-01e and thought that I could change the setting by going to Control Panel, then Device Manager---but there seems to be no way to change the NIC speed there.
Am I on the wrong track?
I'm curious to know why it's better to change the NIC speed to 1000Mbps, rather than letting Windows choose?
Looking to learn--not doubting the advice.

Vista like 7 you should see icon for network near the clock in the system tray? Do you see such an icon. If yes!

Then right click then open network and sharing center
Once you do that you should see to your right Change Adapter Settings. Do you see this link? If you do click on it and then right click on your network adapter. Click on properties Click on Configure, click on Advance, scroll down to Speed & Duplex this name may vary with different nics. Now change the speed from Auto to 1000 it might be 1.0GBps same. Also if you see TCP Offload make sure those are set to Enable.

How are we doing so far? Okay or not?

If you get lost along the way all the settings are in the Device Manager. To get to this in Vista or 7 you just need to right click on the Computer icon on the desktop or in the flag orb menu then click properties and select Device Manager. Scroll down for Network Adapter, click on [+] to expand then right click on properties then on Advanced, then speed & duplex.

You should be all set?

Hello ! Well,the title says it all ! How to change my CPU fan speed ? I've tried with SpeedFan,nothing. I don't know how to do it in BIOS ,and im afraid of using it :[.
Can you recommend me any software ?
Thanks :]

A:How to change my CPU fan speed ?

See the motherboard manual, Chapter 2: BIOS Information, Section 2.5.5 HW Monitor Configuration and the sub-section CPU Q-Fan Function on page 2-18. The default values are fine, but if you want to change the fan speed you will need to do it manually by setting the CPU Q-Fan Mode to Manual. If you're not sure about this, then leave it set at its defaults, as this automatically adjusts the fan speed according to CPU temperature.

Hello!

I want to clean my fan, by making it go into full speed in a few minutes, go over with compressed air and repeat. That's what I was reccomended by my tech-svavy brother when he looked at it.
The problem is, I can't change the fan speed. Programs like speedfan and MSI afterburner doesn't find the fan (and my pc is not in its compatibility list, might be why). I tried to change the fan settings in BIOS, but there isn't an option for it.

I googled some more, but struggle to find a third option. Any ideas? If you need any more info, like what BIOS or specs, feel free to ask. Thanks in advance!

Before doing anything, I suggest you check your mobo manual to see what's supported etc.

I definitely don't recommend a bios update, unless you know for a fact it is needed.

In CPU-Z, appear the Bus Speed in 133MHz and and a multiplier of 9 (the range is 5-9). So, i upgrade the ram and i put a DDR3-12800, and I want to put the Bus Speed to 200MHz.

Hello all, I recently updated my laptop from Windows 8 to 8.1. Before updating, I was able to play all of my games just fine, particularly Skyrim, on high or even max settings. After updating though, the first time I loaded a save game it took nearly between 5-10 minutes to load (compared to normal 1 at most). After that they are better, but still much slower than they used to be, and I can also barely even run Skyrim at the lowest possible graphics settings. I know that my computer has the capability to handle higher settings. Did the update change some setting in performance that I am not aware of? Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks!

A:Noticeable drop in performance after updating

OK, so after posting this, it occurred to me that Nvidia may have released new drivers after Windows 8.1 released. After updating my graphics drivers, I am back to my old high quality settings! Thanks anyway!

It has nothing to do with the specs of the laptop. It's the HDD or SSD that came with the laptop.Lenovo seem to use very slow HDD's, upgrade to SSD and use your HDD for personal files.

Hello, I'm trying to fix my brother's laptop. One of his friend's got a hold of it I guess I'd highly appretiate all the help I can get. For starters, I'm on Windows Vista w/ a Gateway Laptop. I've noticed some files associated with the words trojandownloader...and Myway.MyWebSearch . Additionally there have been occasional pop-ups (mostly) when opening a brower, and often the computer's settings go offline and "fight" me not letting me turn them back on. I've tried using AVG (free 7.5 edition) and Spybot (turning off things in the startup etc), so I think I took out the bulk of it, but the problems earlier mentioned still exit. I downloaded hackjackthis. When I get some feedback I'll post a log ^^ I just need some direction though to do everything. THANKS!

A:CPU Throttles Noticeable When Charging i5 4210U

Check the Acer Care Center application on your computer for BIOS update. Or you can check here: http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers If you want to know what your current BIOS version is: 1. Right click on the Windows Start button2. Left click on Run3. Type msinfo324. Click ok According to the BIOS description on some R13, they did an update of EC which should probably fix what you're experiencing.

hi all,
basically ive added another 1gb DDR2 800mhz stick to my system.
i have in total now 3gb DDR2 800mhz RAM
before i added the 2nd stick i had a 2gb stick. i have checked that each stick has exactly the same specs.
now, before i added the 2nd stick the speed report on boot up was 800mhz, since ive added the 2nd stick that speed has dropped to 667mhz :S im really confused. why would this be??
anyway, if this cannot be resolved would i be better with the 2gig at 800mhz or 3gig at 667mhz?
thanks guys.

I have an old IBM aptiva 2176 c23, i like to tinker with it, it has the pentium 120 mhz cpu in it, it came from the factory with the jumpers set to 60 mhz bus speed, i have a diagram to change it to 66 mhz but am wondering if it is alright to do this? The diagram to change it to the 66 mhz bus speed is listed for changing the CPU to a bigger one and if you dont change the jumpers then you wont get the max processor speed, i plan on changing the processor sometime soon so i will change the bus speed then for sure, but i would like to go ahead and do it now and get the little performance out of it i can for the time being, will it hurt anything?
thanks
 

A:can i change the bus speed without hurting anything?

Usually the only thing that will happen if you change the bus speed is, the computer won't boot. Then you need to change it back.

Ive been looking around for ways to change fan speed. I keep seeing people saying check your fan speed in bios, make faster in bios, open bios.. HOW DO I DO THAT? It makes no sense, can someone tell me in laments terms?

A:How do i change fan speed in bios

It's highly possible that your specific BIOS does not contain the tools to do so.

An alternative is to install a Windows program like SpeedFan:

How can I change the CPU clock speed? I want to reduce it from 4000 Mhz to 3400 Mhz because it's too overheating for my CPU.

The previous AMD drivers allowed it but the new one's don't. Is there any software or anything you can recommend?

And don't tell me the Windows Power Option thing, it's doesn't work.

Not sure if this is the right forum to post this, but here I go.

The Story: I have a Dell Dimension E510 with 1gb of RAM Intel (R) Pentium (R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz with a processor speed of 533 MHz. I recently bought a 4 GB (Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB &#40;2 x 2GB&#41; 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 &#40;PC2 6400&#41; Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ), with a processor speed of ddr2 800 and installed it. After going into bios, it says


Installed Memory = 4.0GB
Memory Speed = 533MHz
Memory Channel Mode = Dual Interleaved
Memory Technology = DDR2 SDRAM


Why is my memory speed still 533 MHz and not 800 MHz? Can I change this?

A:Change Processor Speed

A pentium 4 3.0Ghz CPU has a front side bus speed 133Mhz. And quad pumped 133x4 is 533Mhz.

Now, your RAM is DDR2 ram, so you take the FSB speed of 133Mhz and double it to 266Mhz (DDR part). Then you take the x2 part and take 266 x 2 = 533Mhz.

Thus, your RAM is going to run at 533Mhz. The way to increase the RAM speed is to overclock the CPU and increase it's FSB speed. You could then take the FSB to 200 and then that would run your ram at 800Mhz. However, the Dell is not likely going to let you make these changes.

I noticed this problem just yesterday when I downloaded the Torchlight demo from Steam and started playing it on max settings Lo and behold I only got fps while playing the game noticeable --- by in Sudden in drop around games. 60% most performance Which is weird because I'm able to hit fps playing Crysis on max a game with much higher sysytem requirements After more observation since then I've noticed that my laptop in general has slowed down a bit --- the mouse movement isn't as smooth apps don't load as fast and the system in general doesn't respond as quick as before So finally I decided to benchmark my system again running Crysis on max Luckily I benchmarked it two weeks ago using Fraps and got this result on max settings Ultra Detail DX High-Res Textures Min Max Avg But just now when I benchmarked the game again - at Sudden drop in performance by around 60% --- most noticeable in games. the exact same part of the game I played before - I got this Ultra Detail DX High-Res Textures Min Max Avg That's a drop in FPS which makes me positive that there's something wrong with my laptop but I have no idea where to start diagnosing this problem My system specs are in my profile Help please

A:Sudden drop in performance by around 60% --- most noticeable in games.

I would start with checking and removing any malware, spyware and adware that might be on your system which does cause systems to slow down. Then go through your programs list and remove/un-install any software that you don't use anymore. Then use Ccleaner to clean up system and run the registry cleaner if you so desire. Then defrag your hard drive if not an SSD, then reboot.

Next, I would make sure I have all the latest drivers for all your hardware.

So, sometime during the summer my IP address changed from the previous one that I had for several years (5+). For some reason it is now much slower. It is broadband and peaks at about 5 down 1 up and I used to be able to watch 720p youtube videos with no buffering problems, now it takes several minutes just to buffer 10 seconds. At another place, I have 10 down and 1 up fiber optics, no problem buffering 720p or 1080p videos. The former of the two used to be up to par with the latter, but for some reason the former just got slower around the time of the IP change. I have not changed any of the settings of my router, and have had times when it has said it couldn't communicate with the primary DNS server. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

What IP are you talking about? Public (provided by ISP), or Private (supplied by YOUR home router)?

couple of things, your isp could be throttling your line due to unusual activity. if they are working on the line trying out various fixes you may see an improvement in time.
Main thing is get onto them and ask what is going on, (dont tell them you were downloading)

My old CPU was 2.40GHz and I replaced it with a 2.53GHz. System information and BIOS still show it as 2.40GHz. One thread said go into BIOS and change the CPU setting but I can't do that in my BIOS, it just states what the CPU is and the speed, it doesn't give the option to change anything. Is there anything I can do, or is this enough information? I have XP SP2 and an ASUS P4G800-V motherboard. Will clearing the RTC RAM do anything for me?

Hi

I have 3 fans in my case and need to speed them up as my computer is overheating.
How do I check/change the speed of my fans?

-Iroro

A:How do I check/change the speed of my fans?

The simplest method would be to restart your PC and go into your BIOS. Most BIOS''s have a "PC Health" option, which will tell you temps and fan speeds.

Depending on the age of your motherboard, it might have options to control fan speeds.

Your specs don't say what CPU you have. You have a pretty good video card, so the obvious things to check are that the fans are big enough (at least 120mm), and you have good airflow

But, there are literally hundreds of threads here about cooling, overheating, and related topics. Rather than restate all of those, it would be worthwhile doing some searches here. You'll find plenty of good advice throughout the many threads.

You might want to check Gigabyte or Viaarena to see if yur board also requires a seperate AGP mini port driver. I know my Gigabyte 7VRX required the mini port driver before the AGP could be set higher than 1X. the AGP mini port driver was a sperate download from the Via 4 in 1 drivers but most newer via based chipsets dont require it.

A:Double click speed - how to change?

I'm currently on my Windows 8.1 Pro system, and my mouse applet does have the ability to change double-click speed.  It's under the "Activities" tab.  I don't have a touchpad because my only Windows 8.1 systems are desktops.  I tried to copy and paste the actual mouse applet window, but it doesn't work.  It says

"Because of your browser security settings, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again in this window.


Please paste inside the following box using the keyboard (Ctrl/Cmd+V) and hit OK"
However when I do that, it still doesn't paste anything.  I'm using Chrome with default security settings and don't know what I need to do.  I've seen numerous posts with graphics here, but I'm stumped.  I'll try in a minute with Firefox & see if that's any different.
 I wonder though.  Would the guy you're trying to help be aided by a real mouse?  They're certainly cheap enough.

Immediately upon booting up my new HP Envy laptop I noticed a continual noise coming from the top right, above the numberic pad. It is a rotating noise of clicking, static and what sounds like spinning. The noise sounds like the hardrive processing, however it is continual with diferent noises coming in waves. I've read a few other complaints with the same issue, but no solution. Noise is not overbearing but extremely annoying and can be heard across a quite room. I've made sure to update/download the most recent drivers and updates incluse BIOS, which has done nothing. Below is a 15 second recording of the sound while the laptop is turned on with no applications open...the noise gets louder and more noticeable as more processes are used. https://www.dropbox.com/s/flp32q2fhxkhzd2/IMG_0252.MOV?dl=0 Product #: L8R68AV Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I upgraded from a single GTX 275 to crossfire XFX HD6870s. Motherboard ASUS P6T Deluxe V2.

Now I am strictly speaking of in game (Black Ops) not benchmarks...

I may have had my expectations too high.. but I expected some higher frame rates...

With the GTX 275 I managed to get around 90 - 100 fps.

Now I installed the two 6870s and I am still getting between 90 - 100 fps, and in fact drops down below 60 fps at certain points in the game (online multiplayer) I have played with the settings in game, but not many settings in the CCC except for enabling crossfire mode.

Am I expecting too much, or am I doing something wrong here?

Edit:
Also, If I should send back my two 6870s and replace it with something that will give me better performance... if you have a suggestion let's keep the price range for the two cards under $600.

I've had this Dell Latitude C400 for quite a while now, but recently I've noticed that the bus speed (which is usually 133 MHz) changes by itself to 33 MHz and doesn't change back unless you do a couple of reboots. I know that it's not the SpeedStep thing because that should make it run at 800 MHZ processing speed. It's labeled as a 1.2 GHZ CPU and currently it's running at around 193 MHZ according to CPU-Z. Dell says that it's my hard drive... don't know how that could affect the bus speed, but I guess it's because it's Dell. :haha: What could be the issue and how can I fix it other than replacing parts?

Here's the specs that it has:

It's nothing new, but because of the new Task Manager I started to care about it after installing Windows 8. Normally my internet speed is only about 1 mbps (~8 mbit). Because of that, the task managers' "Network" bar shows wrong percents. I assume that that is because Windows reports wrong wired internet speed (100 mbps).
Is there anyway to change it so hopefuly I can see meaningful data?
Thanks!

Windows does not report your internet speed. It reports your NETWORK speed, and your network connection between your computer and your modem is much greater than the speed of your internet.

Windows has no facility to measure, or specify the speed of your internet.

Right-click on the Realtek HD Audio Manager icon in the system tray. Select "Sound Manager."
Select the "Default Format" tab. Select a sample rate and bit rate from the drop-down menu.
I choose 16Bits, 192,000 Hz.

Click "OK" to close the audio manager(there is no 'OK', I 'X' out the program).

Right-click on the Realtek HD Audio Manager icon again. Select "Sound Recorder."
Press the "Start Recording" button to start recording.
It records at 92kbps, not what I have chosen.
How do I get this to record at the kbps that I choose?
Thanks!

A:How does one change the kbps speed in RealTek Audio Manager?

What do you need 16 bit 192KHz for? CD standard audio is 16 bits 44.1Khz. I have a recording studio and record at 24 bit 44.1Khz but when I do final mixdown its to the "standard" 16 bits 44.1Khz.

The only thing higher bit rates are going to do for you is create bigger music files.

Ok, I bought this nifty arse digital camera, a Fuji FinePix S3000. It's 3.2megapixel with a 6x optical zoom. It's also got a manual mode, although it's a half-*** manual mode. I plan on taking pictures of fast moving things but I can't figure out how to do it. Does anybody know how to change the ISO or shutter speed of this camera, or is there even a way?

It's got an Apperature Priority setting, what's that mean? The setting has three different settings, f2.8 f4.9 and f8.2. What do these mean and what do they do? I've noticed that when I change the apperature it gives me wierd numbers for the speed, like 1/2.8 or something like that. The fastest the camera can go is 1/1500 sec, how do i get that?

My laptop for some reason suddenly started taking about 10 seconds to load a page where it would normally take 1 second. The download speed remains fast, at about 8Mbps. Also while loading a webpage, say for example bbc.com will take 10 seconds, navigating to bbc.com/news through links will be very quick.

Also to point out that this is a problem only with my laptop, as it spontaneously started occurring in 2 places I use internet, while the other computers using the same network were unaffected.

Also although I am not sure if this is relevant, this may have something to do with an infection, as also all my icons on the desktop were made invisible(but still there when highlighted)

Flushed my DNS

I am taking a class at my school, and they lent us these older Dell laptops that run at 1.3ghz, have 800mhz fsb, and contain 256mb ddr ram (loaded up bios on the computer to see). What I can't figure out is the fact that whenever I log on using the schools user name, the computer takes a good 30 seconds logging on, and starts out with 100% usage of the cpu, although only has 22 processes. I end around six or seven of them, although the computer speeds up, it is still slow. It could probably use a good defragmenting, though it wouldn't slow down that much, right? Also, the computers are very restricted. I know some bugs with Xp that can remove the administators password, but I won't touch these computers further than I have.
 

A:Speed issue

Hi cfitzarl,

I don't know if there are 1.3 GHZ CPU's with a 800MHZ FSB. I think those 800MHZ FSB CPU's are Northwood's C (A or B, donīt know ), and Prescotts.
There are 1.3GHZ P4's, with 400MHZ FSB, some P3's with 133FSB, etc.

Regarding the machine, I'd defragment it, but it would take a while. I don't think that you have time to do it.
Also, it could have viruses, and crap like that.

Anyways, 1.3 GHZ is a little slow for windows XP, so don't expect miracles, especially if they have a normal coppermine Celeron CPU.

I am having a strange issue. My wired download speed is .80/mbps while my upload is 8.5/mbps. The connection is FIOS 35/35 and I am having zero issues with any other cpu on the network wired or wireless.

This is a new machine with a fresh install on it. The only 'third party' app is Chrome.

Network setup is follows:
Verizon FIOS ont box > Cisco E1000 Router > Linksys 24port 10/100 switch

This box is plugged into the switch at the end of the chain. I have swapped cables and have tested different machines. Everything else is working fine but not this machine.

Any tips?

A:Speed Issue

Is that the speed that you are seeing when you download a file or is it through a speed test?

Also, if that is the speed while downloading a file but your speed test is fine; Does the download start high then drop down?

Hi

I have recently just got Virgin Media 10mb connection (wireless). Me and my friend share this connection, he has a mac i have a pc(laptop). It seems that my friend can get near enough full speed with downloads etc (tested on speedtest.net), my friend got nearly 10mb download speed, however I averaged at 6mb. Another example, my friend downloaded a file from a website, the speed went at about 1.5mb/s, I then downloaded the exact same file directly after his download had finished, my average download speed was 250kb/s.
My wireless card is "intel(r) pro/wireless 3945abg", it is a 54mb/s card so it should be more than capable to get the full 10mb/s that is offered to me. Any help in how to 'de-restrict' my card to obtain the full speed?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks in advance

I have ran virus scan and several disk defrag waht could be wrong.

Does that computer come with onboard graphics? And if so did you disable it in the BIOS and or uninstall it in device manager? Was the Pro installed fresh? Have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling the GPU drivers? In the BIOS you'll find a setting that says Init Display First. If you switched from onboard to a graphics card that need to be changed from PCI to AGP or PCI express depending on the systems configuration. The other thing is when the graphics become jerky like that it is often either a GPU unable to handle the applications graphics (like an old card trying to play a new game), or it's a GPU heat issue, but with the heat thing you would probably be getting artifacts (patchy areas that aren't rendering properly) as well.

Hi, i am using a zoom modem. i am connected but the speed is slow. on checking the router status it is showing the downstream speed as 1728 and upstream as 448, but when i run a online speed test it gives a speed of 130kb/s and upload as 377Kb/s.On the router by gateway is showing as 217.47.151.193 and the ip is showing as
62.72.32.181.

On CMD the gateway is 10.0.0.2 and the same ip.

Hello, I have bought this laptop, in the product specification it tells me the ram speed should be ddr3 1600 MhzI have downloaded bios updates, and now the HP Support assistent tells me my ram speed is only 800 Mhz??I went inside bios but it doesn't give me options to change ram speed. 800 Mhz is slow. is there a way to change itback to 1600 or at least 1333 Mhz? Regards

A:Ram Speed Issue

@ginoversace?, welcome to the forum. Your RAM is Double Data Rate (DDR).  Therefore, if you take 800 MHz x 2 you have 1600 MHz. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

as subject say my internet connection on this computer is only getting half of the speed I should be getting. this has been tested with three different connections, two wifi and the LAN.

Download speeds are slow as well. I have a 20mbps down and 1mbps up. I can achieve about 10mpbs down and 500kbps up.

All other computers on the network are running win 7 pro x86 and have full speed.

Any idea's?

Could be a bad network driver, configuration issue, bad cable, conflict with another device on wifi, dns, etc

Can you go to start>search>type cmd>right click and run as admin>ipconfig /all

Take a screenshot and upload it to us.

I recently added memory to my Gateway FX 7026 quad core. After I was done with the process, during the post process an error flashed across (too quick to capture unfortunately), but it had to do with a Microsoft Handler of some sort. The net result is that my cpu cooling fan is running constantly at top speed now. I have had the system for 6 months and it has never run like this before.

Any ideas?

Hello Erekosa, welcome to Vista forums!

Seeing that you're having issues with new RAM installed and 'handler' issues; it may be that the 'new' RAM is bad! (it happens)

The best option would be to burn Memtesr86 to a CD and test each stick individually for at least one full pass.

Keep us informed!
