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

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

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.

Preferred Solution: Moving at turtle speed - Internal Network issue or DSL 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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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 <- 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.

I have a very bizarre networking issue and I m completely Internal outside issue network the to latency getting world stumped I ll first describe the network then the symptoms and then what I have tried so far Network I have a DSL connection coming into a Westell Wirespeed modem The modem is plugged into the WAN port of a Belkin Wireless G MIMO router Port of the Internal network latency issue getting to the outside world router has a cable running down through two apartment floors to a Linksys Internal network latency issue getting to the outside world EZXS W -port workgroup switch into the uplink port There are two computers connected via cat to the switch There is one computer connected via cat to port of the belkin router There are five computers connected via wireless ALL computers can and do pick up an IP address from the router Most of the computers are fairly idle all are spyware and virus free The hardware is all brand new Oh I also have a linksys wireless repeater that is connected to the router wirelessly to boost my signal strength Symptoms The issue I have is that the router intermittently loses connection to the internet yes the router itself It is connected most of the time and when it is the network is ultra slow going to the outside world I get insane ping latency timeouts Everything loads VERY SLOWLY or times out Troubleshooting steps I spent a while on the phone with Verizon my isp and the line test looked good Also when I plugged my laptop directly into the DSL modem disconnecting the rest of the network my speed was what it should be and it did not lose the connection at all This eliminates my ISP as the problem As soon as I plugged the router back into the DSL modem the connection went to hell I made sure that the MTU setting on the router was as suggested by my ISP I have -bit WEP on the wireless though that should not matter and excellent signal strength My UPnP settings do not affect anything and it is disabled at the moment I disabled my router firewall even though I was pretty sure it wouldn t matter --- it didn t I ran wireshark to sniff the wireless traffic and everything looked good i e a few broadcasts from the router here and there a few master browser elections whatever small traffic I had going nothing out of the ordinary I called Belkin to troubleshoot and they just want to replace the router I know this isn t the answer because prior to the belkin router I had a D-Link DI- router that had the same exact issue I have tried connecting the cable going to the switch into a port other than uplink to no avail The port next to uplink is empty I have even eliminated the switch and all computers connected to it which did nothing This is certainly not an easy networking issue so any other experts out there please help Thanks Evan nbsp

Using all available win previews and now the official public release I have had mbps speeds on my LAN til yesterday when I Finally network fixed my issue. speed set jumbo frames to ON and k size I didn't try any other I just used the largest BAM My full normal gigabit speeds are back once again I find myself dumb founded as to what Microsoft has done to a working network architecture to break it so badly that shares speed and availability are Finally fixed my network speed issue. now nearly broke NEVER have I ever had to use jumbo frames on any PC or OS in fact doing so previously has made zero difference in throughput i love windows for what they did but it's actually worse than windows on many levels I won't go back to Win yet if at all I am just baffled why they did what they did for the home and pro versions Sure make enterprise have a newish type of network architecture because businesses are going to do a complete review due up all of their PCs way home user is going to do one they're going to use Windows be immediately turned off because the networking doesn't work very well if it all

I dled the latest drivers for the Santa Cruz on my Xp system.

When I record something (using Audacity) through my desktop mic (recently purchased LabTec 524) and play it back, the sound only comes out of the left speaker. I have the recording preferences in Audacity set to Stereo. What gives? This happens when I use the regular Windows Sound Recorder as well. It just won't record to both left and right channels for some reason.

I'm almost positive this is not an issue with my speakers or mic. I'm thinking this may be a universal problem with the Santa Cruz's mic input...

Any info is appreciated

A:Turtle Beach Santa Cruz recording issue

What type of speaker setup are you using? Try it with just the mike and a two speaker setup using the "front" speaker output. Have the versa jack set to "analog out" in the Santa Cruz control panel -- as this can affect the way speaker output is handled I believe.

Hi, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Welcome ! I am sorry about your issue with the computer. It seems like software issue. HP has an official article which you can read and follow about problems of this kind >> Please, read it and if nothing written there helps, I am afraid you will end up in system recovery or similar option.   With regards to your data (documents, pictures, etc...)  -  you can copy them *NOW* using a live m-e-d-i-a (e.g. live CD). Download ESET rescue CD based on Linux-Lubuntu:>>>> full detailed guide >> Option 1) prepare one USB pen drive and empty CD or DVD. Download the ESET ISO image file, burn it on a CD or DVD, boot from it and open the file manager to copy/paste your important files to the USB pen drive. Option 2) prepare two empty USB pen drives, download the ESET tool to create a USB pen drive, boot from the USB pen drive. Open the file manager to copy/paste your important files to the second USB pen drive.  After data has been copied you can try Windows Refresh or HP System Recovery. You can read more information about them here:>>  (choose the option to keep your files)>>  ( you can also back up files during the process but not keep them). System Recovery is performed using built-in system partitions. The end result will be fresh clean start (Windows reinstalled).Windows Refresh is less instrusive option that usually keeps files and Metro/Modern apps.  Please, let me know if something is not clear. I'd love to assist.

I have a bit of a problem with moving files around...instead of trying to explain it Ill just list the things that is wrong:

ctrl+C, ctrl-V, ctrl+X does not work

trying to cut/copy/paste from right clicking does not work

drag/drop does not work

I CAN open the file and Save As.. to put the file where I want it

This is exclusively with files, I can do whatever I want with text without a problem

everything is available to use in the right-click menu, and when I cut a file it shades the file, but if I try to paste it somewhere else it does nothing, the file stays shaded where it originally was.

Any advice? it started a few days ago and I havent installed anything that would cause it to do that.

A:Issue with moving files

Hi JPS, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You might see if runnina sfc /scannow command can find and fix any bad system files that may be causing this.

System Files - SFC Command

In the mean time, you might try this to see how it works for you.


Hope this helps,

Hello I've an odd situation I can't seem to figure out It's an annoyance more than a serious problem but still I'm not certain if the move to Win was the explicit cause but that is when it happened - so I post here I run three displays off of my AMD Moving 10 after Resolution Issue Win to Radeon HD - a SyncMaster BW - quot a Dell E H - quot and a LG TV - Resolution Issue after Moving to Win 10 quot I use the 'extend my display' option and have all three acting as a single horizontal display I would until recently drag my apps browser etc from either of the displays to the TV without issue - the resolutions were nearly identical that is I didn't really have to adjust the size of anything when I dragged between them Yesterday I finally updated my system to Win from Win Pro This required I update my drivers and such from AMD so I got the most recent version for Win Now the TV's display resolution appears huge When I drag anything from either of the other two displays to the TV it is some four times as large It's a pain to try and fit it in enough to even be able to grab a corner drag to resize move it again drag to resize - I have to do this - times just so it fits within the display Pain in the butt But here's the thing - the resolution in my AMD panel shows the TV res being identical to what one of the monitors is x It is the maximum and recommended setting available I have no clue what has happened or what to do to correct it at this point Any ideas what has happened Thanks Intel i GHz core P -GD MS- gigs G Skill x GB DDR - AMD Radeon HD

I have an external hard drive that has 300gb of free space. I'm trying to move a couple 4gb files from my laptop to the external drive by simple drag-n-drop or copy-n-paste however it says the file is too large for the destination drive.

Any ideas?

A:File Moving Issue

Is the external drive formatted as FAT32? Check by going to My Computer and right-clicking on the drive and then selecting Properties.

If it says the File System is FAT32 then you will need to format it as a NTFS drive before you can copy 4gig or larger files over.

Having sent the G20 back under warranty for a complete overhaul I got it back and put it away. It was not used for 2 years after checking everything was working ok. Now when I switch it on I get a dos like screen and I am told the internal battery has gone!

I did not even know it had one which apparently runs out after about 5 years. Is this true and if so why does no one tell you about this. It is also apparently only accessible if you strip most of the computer down - is this correct and why is this so inaccessible?

Do they assume these machines are not going to last 5 years?
What are my options, is this worth the time and money to get the battery replaced or should I just sell the computer as its set to factory settings as new.
Opinions would be appreciated.

A:Qosmio G20 -156 Internal Battery issue


I think you mean the BIOS battery (also called CMOS battery).
Its mounted (in many cases also soldered) on the motherboard and this battery provides power for BIOS.

Usually this battery would be charged always when the AC adaptor is connected and the notebook is powered ON.

As far as I know the battery should be charged for about 18 hours in order to get it fully charged. So connect the AC adaptor and leave the notebook running for a longer period of time (18h). then check if this battery would be charged.
If not, then the service technician should check this and if necessary this part should be replaced.

[The MSI forum either takes forever for someone to reply, or nobody ever does.]

So I noticed that, when I have external speakers plugged in via the green output, the internal microphone is disabled. When I have them unplugged, the internal microphone is enabled.

BUT, the audio quality is extremely bad and is very low. The microphone level is all the way up to 100, the boost is at +30.0 dB, and the format is at 2 channel (16 bit, 48000 Hz, DVD quality).

Even if I'm 3 inches away from the microphone, the audio is quite low and the quality is bad. Sounds like an old Internet stream or something.

My audio drivers are up-to-date. Sort of disappointing, especially when it comes to Skype (audio quality is very poor).

A:Computer Running at Turtle Speed

Greetings, and welcome to TSF!

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).


Download, then unzip to "C:\HJT", the newest version of HiJackThis; version 1.99.1. Then repost your log, either now, or after following the steps in the solution (if provided in this post). This version has features that might be more helpful in 'cleaning' up your system.


Run HiJackThis then:

1. Click "Config..."
2. Click "Misc Tools"
3. Click "Open Process manager"


Next, while holding down the CTRL key, locate (if present) and click on (highlight) each of the following:

C:\Program Files\BearShare\BearShare.exe
C:\Program Files\VVSN\VVSN.exe

Now double-check and make sure that only those item(s) above are highlighted, then click "Kill process". Now, click "Refresh", check again, and repeat this step if any remain.


Run HiJackThis and click "Scan", then check(tick) the following, if present:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar =
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page =
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL =
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar =
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page =
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) =

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [BearShare] "C:\Program Files\BearShare\BearShare.exe" /pause
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [VVSN] C:\Program Files\VVSN\VVSN.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [System32Check] C:\WINDOWS\win32win.exe

Now, with all windows closed except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".


Locate and delete the following item(s), if present. Make sure your able to view system and hidden files/ folders:


C:\Program Files\BearShare
C:\Program Files\VVSN




Note that some of these file(s) may or may not be present. If present, and cannot be deleted because they're 'in use', try deleting them from "Safe Mode".

Hi all,

new win 7 install. Tried to move special folder from ssd to hdd.
Create a new folder on the hdd with the name of the profile. I then assumed when moving folder into it they will be automatically created
-> moved "downloads" folder first and selected that above folder without creating a "downloads" folder in that one and select that one. I realized something went wrong and wanted to move it back. On moving it back i made the same mistake, so the whole user profile folder is now the download folder and it is called "downloads" and not after the user name. However right-click does not work on that one. Can't change the path or move it.

Any ideas? Also tried in registry but with no success.

Hello beginner99

Firstly you can use this to put your user folders back in their default location - User Folders - Restore Default Location
Then follow the instructions here to successfully relocate your user folders to your other drive - User Folders - Change Default Location or possibly consider this if its a clean install - User Profile - Change Default Location

I have a Western Digital 300GB SATA drive, formatted FAT32 under XP. This is NOT a boot disk. While it was in the XP box it was configured as a basic disc, single partition, no unallotted space. I put about 250GB of data onto it, then I took it out of the XP box and put into a Windows 7 box. System BIOS sees the drive no problem. However disk manager under 7 shows the disk as dynamic, invalid. It won't let me reactivate the disk ("The operation is not allowed on the invalid disk pack."). This drive has NEVER been configured dynamic. But it's never been in a 7 box till now either.

What's the deal? There must be something I'm not getting, some configuration that I need to do for this to work. All I want is for 7 to see the drive for what it is, a basic disk.



A:disk issue moving drive from XP to 7

I think if you change disc to NTFS it should work. I go back and forth between my 7 and XP discs all the time with windows explorer and never had a bit of trouble.

On looking at your specs after the fact, your 64bit may not like it. Mine is all 32bit.

I was wondering is there was a way to get round a metro tile issue that has been annoying me for a while. Basically you can move windows 8 tiles right and left but if you have multiple rows you cannot directly swap tiles up and down.

For example imagine I have two rows of tiles each with two tiles so a1, a2 and b1 and b2. I can swap a1 with a2 and b1 with b2 without any issues. However moving b1 with a1 forces a1 to move to the right meaning a2 is now where b1 would be.

I'd love to be able to just swap them so swapping a1 and b1 would swap the two around and leave the others alone. Is there a way around this?

The best way to manipulate tile locations is to add tiles, pin something else, or add something with oblytile.

Over the past year or so, I've noticed that every time I change the angle of my LCD, I'll hear the USB sound (like you've added or removed something) and then I will get a notice "USB Device Not recognized". In device manager there is an "Unknown device" listed.The only things I can think of are my webcam and microphone. I have noticed that my microphone wont work at all. My webcam works only when installing the right combination of drivers. I wouldn't think the microphone is a USB device though.

I've been facing this issue recently, and I'm not sure what's wrong...
I've an internal 500gb blue wd drive, SMART info seems ok, and even the speed tests I've made for this drive seems to be ok for the drive... I know these drives are not the fastest ones...

For some reason, for the last past few days, whenever i transfer big files from this HD to an external USB3 drive, speeds are 15 mb/s, 30mb at the most... A few days ago, speed was a lot more, not under 70-80 mb/s...

It's also worth mentioning that whenever I start copying the file, the led for the internal HD goes crazy... Usually when copying files, it used to be 'half-lit'...
So it seems the head is just moving a lot now...
Disk is also defragmented weekly...

I cannot debug this one, but it does not seems to be a problem with the HD somehow...


Thank you.


A:(issue) - slow read speeds on internal hdd

Hello SaNdMaN82!

Sorry your transfer speed has dropped so rapidly, but this has been reported before, as well. Do you have only data on it, is the OS on another drive?

In such cases it's good to clean check your HDD, for viruses and malware, with an updated antivirus software; make full scans.

Also, check the drive's health using WD Data Lifeguard software, do both Quick and Extended tests to see if the error is in the drive itself.

Support Answers

Back up all of your files. After that is completed, go to Device Manager and uninstall the hard drive. Replug the drive into a different SATA port, reboot the system, load Last good known configuration and the drive should be detected again, let it re-load the drivers, check for Driver updates if you have to. But don't do this without backing up. It may take some time, but still!

Hope any of this helps you!

Good luck!

Hello. Newb here. I recently took out the hard drive on my old computer and made it into an external hard drive after purchasing an enclosure for it. Plugging it in, I quicky found that I am unable to find files such as pictures, music, and videos.


1. Does anyone know why this would be?
2. If I reconnect HD to old computer, is it safe to assume that files will reappear?

Thank you in advance for any feedback.

You've got Asus motherboard, hence the first thing I'll look at considering the issues you are having, is at RAM settings/voltage in the board's BIOS, these should be exactly the same as on RAM packaging, but even that doesn't guarantee that it may not be the issue, so basically you'll need to fiddle around a bit with settings/voltage in case default specs doesn't work.

You may also consider stress testing your graphic card using OCCT (including vRam). Regards

So the other night I heard some crackling noises coming from my laptop and then the sound just stopped working altogether. I pretty frequently plug and unplug a set of external speakers in the headphone jack so I figured this might be the issue. Sure enough, when I apply pressure with my finger over the headphone jack opening the internal speakers work fine. When I release the pressure the internal speakers stop working. I kind of smacked the laptop on the side a bit and it seems to be ok for now but I'm guessing the only way to fix this permanently if the issue returns is to open the laptop and secure anything that might be loose near the headphone jack. I have never opened up my laptop before, if I do have to do this are there some precautions I should be taking to ensure I don't completely mess it up?

Hey folks So I recently moved over alot of parts into a barebones after a MB after with POSTing Thinking a to new Issue moving barebones. dead? is - presumed - dead motherboard Issue with POSTing after moving to a barebones. Thinking new MB is dead? was preventing POST Since various other parts needed replacing like the tower processor and of course the motherboard I just picked up a barebones involving those bits and a few extras Anyways got it assembled with the help of a tech acquaintance but wouldn t ya know it no POST Mouse and Keyboard light up the DVD Drive can eject and light up tower and heat sink fans spin but no display or POST Common problem amongst builders but this seemed eerie right off the bat because it was the exact same situation that lead me to throwing down for a full new barebones in the first place due to a dud motherboard So I tried a few things namely unplugging my hard drives and DVD Drives completely which didnt solve it So I then tried triggering a RAM error beep by removing my memory Still no beep So now I m worried that my new MB is DoA or dead in some form or another However I d like to get an answer for two questions before I concede that this is the case The new tower came with this weird cable that links into what seems to be the power and reset buttons It has a USB symbol on the head and quot SS quot on it as well and the front of the plug has twenty small squares I google searched it and it appears to be something called a SuperSpeed USB Is this important Because I couldnt find anything on the MB that fits it Worried because it seems important for the power to link to the tower properly Despite the power turning on regardless Keep in mind that I didn t do much of the wiring myself One thing I noticed after attempting to boot without hard drives or a DVD Drive was that the fan within my power supply was not spinning It was supplying power the MB could find power and light up any lights connected to it and my fans as well but the fan inside the power supply it s self was not spinning It seemed like a ghostly power supply and im hoping that it s the culprit and not my MB Does anyone have any possible explainations for this that might save me from calling in a dead motherboard replacement If specs are needed let me know Ill get to them asap if asked Cheers in advanced guys nbsp

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, 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?

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?

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.

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.

A:Speed issue

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.

Ok, I'm stumped by my internet issue. Maybe you can shed some light on it.

Ping is averaging 11000ms, upload 0.01-0.07, download 0.2-0.4
Here's the setup: AT&T modem --> Linksys Router --> 2 simple switches --> computers

What I tried:
1. I plugged in a laptop directly to the modem and speed is back to normal.
2. I swapped out a cat 5 cable between the modem and router and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.
3. I swapped out the router with a new one and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.

So the router is fine. I don't think it's the switches if everything is working fine for a couple minutes. Also, my wireless is fast and then bad again when I tried swapping stuff out.

Hi guys after installing some new RAM i checked CPU-Z to see if all was ok, and it doesn't seem to be.

I bought some Crucial Ballistix 8Gb 1866MHz, however is doesn't seem to be running at 1866 more like 667MHZ.

I have a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 and a AMD FX-4100

Is there way i can force the speed on the RAM to 1866?

Any input is greatly appreciated.


A:Memory Speed Issue

CPU-Z reports the clock frequency of the RAM. DDR (DDR2, DDR3) transfer data twice per clock tick, so CPU-Z reports 667MHz for DDR3-1333.

Most motherboards seem to run DDR3-1333 and up at DDR3-1333 by default. To get the higher frequency, you'd either need to set the BIOS to use XMP, or manually set the RAM frequency and timings.

First what kind of internet service do you have, and what speed.
Test your internet using dsl reports, or speedtest. I prefer speedtest: - The Global Broadband Speed Test

How are you connecting to the internet, wired or wireless. Also as a side note the slow download speeds could also be on the downstream server end. The number of simultaneous downloads, they might throttle back the server to save bandwith, etc.

Okay here s a real head-scratch-er About days ago I started noticing some serious speed issues with web browsing while using my wireless router Every once in a while I will notice little differences during what may be peak hours and whatnot Internet issue Serious speed but this is far worse I decided to do a speed and ping test and I got an F on my network that Serious Internet speed issue normally receives a low A or high B I ran a gamut of spyware tests and I am clear there Anyway the real thing that is confusing me is I attempted to connect via a hardline the cable I use to connect to my wireless router so I at least Serious Internet speed issue know it s functional but the network was unidentifiable and I could not get an internet connection but when I reconnected my wireless router and let everything restart I was able to connect wirelessly using the same modem that would not connect me through an ethernet cable I have a Belkin n wireless router and I would appreciate any help available Thanks nbsp

A:Serious Internet speed issue

Are you remembering to power cycle (unplug for 30 seconds) the modem when switching the device connected to it?

What download/upload do you get with a connection directly to the modem with With an ethernet connection to the router? With a wireless connection to the router?

Hi all.

My friend sent me a message about his laptop. He formatted it last night because it was running very slow, but the problem continues.

What sort of things should he look at to fix his issue?

Thank you in advance.

I am using a D-Link DIR-655 router on a Windows Home Server network.

When I connect the WHS to a cable upstairs (short cable) I get Gigabit connection speed, however when I put the server downstairs (10 metre cable), I only get 100 Mb LAN speed.

The only difference is the CAT-5e cable and length.

Do I need a shielded CAT-5e or a CAT-6 cable.

The WHS box needs to be downstairs.

That is not a bad speed at all. The advertized speed is the maximum, rarely achieved in real situations. The location of your internet connection is where WildBlue's servers connect you to the internet.

Not sure what to say about your video problem except that when I had a 2 mbps connection, I watched YouTube without many delays. A lower quality feed may help.

A:Internet Download Speed Issue

Hi NomadAU, welcome to Seven Forums.

I recently had similar problems with my Netgear DGN2000. It would download on my wired desktop pc at a snails pace. On my laptop, speed was excellent. When I wired my laptop to my router it would load my home page only and gave No Internet connection. If I moved the ethernet cable to any other ports on the router to my desktop pc it would give No Internet connection.
Removing all connection related settings from both pc's and resetting router to factory default did nothing to improve anything. So I bought a Netgear DGN2200v3, now normal service resumed.

Hi I'm currently having a problem with my win7 64 bit desktops wireless speed. It has recently decided to slow to a crawl I'm talking to the point where the speed is measured in bytes not kilobytes when accessing the net and downloading files. I know it's the computer not my network as other wifi gear still works at full speed.

The only change I have made is to switch antivirus from kaspersky to mcafee, I use a Asus wl-138g v2 wifi card( I know it's old but it's been very reliable until now). Any help would be apreciated, thanx in advance.

A:Speed issue or lack there of with wireless

Sorry you are having issues dis0wned1!

Hi all

My LAN interface connects only with 100Mb/s speed with no reason though it is 1Gbit capable card (Intel 82577LC). I tried it with 3 devices (router, switch, PC directly) and a lot of cables, which are works with 1 GE speed between each other except for Toshiba laptop.

Did anybody meet this problem too? Is there any fix for it?

A:LAN 1G speed issue in Satellite R630-143

The integrated Intel 82577LC Lan card supports the 10 BASE-T / 100 BASE-TX and 1000 BASE-T network standards.

Usually you can change some LAN card options in the LAN card properties.
Go to device manager -> LAN card (Ethernet) -> click right and choose Properties.
Switch to ?Advanced? tab.

Now you should see all options which could be optimized

So originally I was using a Rosewill USB HDD Dock with my WD HD103SI 1 TB Hard Drive. Everything went great, but eventually filled that up. I bought a new WD HD103SJ 1 TB Hard Drive, formatted it as NTFS, but the speeds are horrible. Transfer rates say around 2.0 mb/s give or take .5 mb/s, so it takes around an hour to transfer a 4 GB file to the hard drive, whereas it took 4 minutes on my other one. I didn't change any settings, I just plopped a new hard drive into the same HDD dock, but the speeds I am getting on that hard drive are poor. I also noticed that the file text on the hard drive is in blue? not sure why that is...


A:Speed Issue W/ New Hard Drive

Hello welcome to TSG forum.

I have just googled the part number you have included in your post "WD HD103SJ" and it comes up with a samsung spinpoint not a Western Digital (WD) like you stated. Is this correct?

I have recently chosen a new ISP and am paying for a 1Mbps connection.The problem is that i get a very low download speed of say 16Kbps only when i download using IE. Howver when i use a download manager speeds move up to 100 Kbps and the download gets completed in 1/7th of the time.

Another thing that seems related is that even if i download 6 -7 files at one time (simultaneously) each one will download at around 16 - 18 Kbps totalling to the same overall seed that i expect to get on my 1Mbps connection

Is there something i can try from my end before i blame my ISP?

The following may give us enough information to make a recommendation ...

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with a screen shot see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows Vista or latter I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

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?

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?

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

After having problems with IE 11 on my old eMachine with Win-10 (Home)/ Comcast server I installed Chrome. It works good but the speed test resulted in 1/3rd the speed of IE 11 or FireFox. Several typical dead end suggestions (Internet ?sperts) I assume that Chrome has some setup problems, but cannot find the cure. Any suggestions? BTW, both IE and FF run ~125 Mps, Chrome~45.

Hello everyone,

This is an issue mainly with my hard-drive and not Windows 8. I attached an image to help resolve this problem. Whenever the 'Data transfer rate' reaches 100% I get huge performance issues. This happens whenever I deal with a few running programs that are accessing and writing data.

The speed transfer of this HD is about 3Gbits I think and is interfaced with SATA. Does this mean I have to buy a new HD with larger transfer rate or am I missing something?

I used to run Windows 7 but switched to 8 and with the new task manager I 'managed' to notice the performance with my HD.

I hate to bring this up as I am not shure if it is a site problem, or my slow internet speed.
Often when viewing a forum page here the page [freezes] if I take too long reading or composing a reply or post.
The navigation links quit working and I have to refresh the page to get going again. More of a nuisance really than a real problem.
Sometimes even the post/reply button does not work and when I refresh the page before posting I loose the post and have to rewrite it.
