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.)

I have a 20mb Cable connection (Virgin Media), and I recently bought a Netgear WGT624 v2 (Cable version, not DSL), so I can use wireless with my laptop, and hook up my Xbox 360.
When using the router, my connection speed never goes above 10mb speeds (half of what I am supposed to get). When I remove the router, my speed goes above 10mb.

Neither the Laptop nor the Xbox 360 are turned on, so they cannot be causing the problems.

Does anyone know if there is something I can do to get the speeds up? Maybe something I can set in the router config?

A:Netgear Router Limiting Speed

I couldn't find the link where there was a bunch of routers tested for their throughput performance. But just because a router has a 100 Mbit WAN port doesn't mean it's going to be able to route packets at that speed. The internal processor still has to process each packet going in and out of the router. Here's a link with a few routers tested:

In the chart you'll see WAN throughput both up and down. The FVS336, FVX538, and FVS124 are all in Netgear's SMB line of routers. The FVX538 is Netgear's top dog router which is the only one capable of reaching near 100 Mbit performance. Now look at the FVS124, it just barely breaks 10 Mbit/s.

So the performance you're getting might be indicative of really how fast that router can forward packets.

I have 20Mb broadband from Virgin and Motorola Surfboard modem connected to a Netgear WGT624V3 router.

Our household has 2 Vista laptops and an XP Desktop, all of which connect wirelessly to the internet.

However, none of the connected devices, even when only one is in use, can achieve a download speed of better than 3Mb.

But, if I connect any of these devices directly to the modem, I get consistent download speeds of 16-18Mb.

So the router would appear to be the weak link.

I've updated to the latest router firmware, and I've checked the Netgear website, this forum and the wider web for ideas, but have found nothing useful.

Perhaps I just need a better router, but I'd like to try to get this one working.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Ive got a new NETGEAR WG511 Wireless PCMCIA Card 54Mbps,
WinXP Home SP2
A Wireless Network using NETGEAR Router...

I have it up and running...BUT

when connected it shows speed of around 36/48Mbps (even if right next to router)
Iam using the laptop in same room 5ft away and when i open firefox it slows down to 11mb

Whilst this wud be ok for speed it seems that its not...My internet is 2Mb and 0.5Mb after 6pm
but with this wireless card its just a little faster than dial up (70-90kbps)

what can this be? ive enabled most internet related services..?


A:Solved: NETGEAR WG511 is slow (dial-up speed)


I maybe misunderstanding but if your ISP limits you to a 512K connection after 6pm 70-90Kbps is slightly faster than you should be getting.

The connection speed to your router won't matter (unless it drops below the ISP connection speed).

A:NetGear Wireless issue

Some things you can try here.
Change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.

Since you've updated the firmware, that leaves changing the channel and doing a complete factory reset and reconfiguration.

If neither of these get the wireless working for machines that have no issues with other wireless networks, the wireless capability of that router may simply be broken.

A:Network/Netgear issue

If i get this right then its
Line> Main Modem> Switch> Router
and you want to do this
Line>main modem> switch> <Router><Router>?
or do you want to set the second router as a wireless signal extender?
as far as i know this would be a possible option as you cant set a 2 routers to work on a dhcp or pppoe at the same time.
one would have to be bridged while setting it up with the router that is negotiating the ip adress.

I remember doing something like that long ago but i cant remember the steps for the dlink or netgear. the firmware i know
is probably way out of date.

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 <- 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 friend here from europe and they use their phone with my WIFI and they were connected fine for about a week no problem. All of a sudden the wifi on G has been throwing them off along with my cell phone now. In the previous year or so since ive had this router i have had no issue.

Any idea what could have triggered this?

I have reset the router, settings, changed settings, flushed DNS changed the MTU size no luck.

It is now starting to bother me that i my self cant connect my wireless internet. but my N is staying connected with 0 issues. PLEASE help. Do you think it could be their phone throwing off some settings? sounds crazy but ill believe anything at this point.

Also my hard wire connection to my pc is not loosing connection either.

After reading many reviews about this router at Amazon it seems that the wireless G dropout problem is caused from using the "Auto channel" setting in the routers set up page for wireless. Some reviews are great, many others complain of drop out connection problems. Customer Reviews: NETGEAR N600 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700

I would try using the manual channel setting and look for a clear channel using a WIFI scanner like Xirrus. Wi-Fi Inspector | Xirrus

It sounds like your ISP requires a registered MAC in order for it to function properly.

Since your laptop works connected directly to the modem have you input that laptops MAC into the router for it to get an IP and then see if the desktop and the laptop will connect out through it?

BTW on the graphics card question -

Unofficially supported graphics chipsets :
+ GeForce FX 5200, GeForce FX 5500, GeForce FX 5600, GeForce FX 5700, GeForce FX 5800, GeForce FX 5900 & GeForce FX 5950

Oh the have a WG111v2 USB Wireless adapter.

NO internet from the router.

P.s tried reset router already. I get page can not be display.

A:Router Netgear 54Mbps issue

The ADSL mdoem is probably looking for the MAC address of your computer (which had normally been the first device modem connected to till now). The MAC address is unique hardware address assigned every network adapter.
=> Meaning your netgear router has its own MAC adress
=> And the modem won't provide internet connect to any hardware it sees that's different from the your PC's MAC address (we'll leave aside why some ISP's do this)

Couple options:
a) Most routers (you'll need look at the netgear) have a setup option where you choose to either
- Use the router MAC address (default)
- Use a MAC address you tell it (in which case you tell it the computer's MAC address)
b) But probably simplest to try and force your ISP to reset the address it looks for. Either call your ISP and tell them OR for most ISPs power down your modem for about 15 minutes. Should now accept the MAC address from router. (power down/up works most of the time, if not call ISP dor mac setup in netgear

I was over someones house and thought I got it working ok but here is what was happening and it has stopped working again.

They have DSL to the VonageRouter to the Wireless Netgear router to a computer.
That works fine.
The Laptop they have will see the connection and when you try to connect tells you it can not connect to check the signal strength and the laptop is 10 feet away.
What I did to get it working was take it off the chanel 11 default and put it to I think 10. Which made it work. I tried 1 and 2 but they wouldnt connect.

After I left and it was working. Then it stopped working.
The owner went in and tried all the chanels and even removed and disconnected the 2 wireless phones they have to test that. Still will not connect.

What else can i be looking for to make this work?

So what I did was took my dlink usb wireless and installed on this VISTA machine. It works great at her house on this DLINK. The built in wireless will not work with her wireless router.

I have a Netgear Rangemax WPN824 v2 router that I''ve been trying to use with a cable modem on a desktop PC (wired) and 2 laptops (wireless). Everytime i try to set up the network the internet works for a few seconds or a few mins sometimes, then the desktop keeps going back and forth displaying "Network cable is unplugged" then connecting, then disconnecting over and over, while the router itself lights normally for a few seconds, then all the lights are on then they all turn off then back to the normal lights. The internet doesnt work on any of the computers except for the few moments in the beginning of setting it up, but works fine when I directly connect the desktop to the cable modem without a router. Anyone know what the problem could be?

Well, that appears to have a connection to the router. Are you sure a firewall isn't blocking the wireless connection?

Try some pings as well with this wireless connection.
Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.


PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>



Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I've got a Netgear WG102 connected to a Netgear FVS114 Firewall as a DHCP server, that's then connected to a crappy BT Voyager 102 ethernet ADSL modem.

I can connect to the network fine, and it works for a while, but will then stop transfering data, and I can't get a new IP - a /renew gives me an autoconfigured address of

Even when it doesn work, it won't do bizarre things like copy emails to my IMAP sent folder, even though it will send the emails and allow me to view new ones, even when there's no firewall turned on. This could be an internet issue, but the DHCP issue can't be.

Any ideas?

Hello, I am having the same problems as this person.

I just didn't want to hijack a thread, basically I can connect to the router with no encryption but when I try to use any type of encryption (WPA2-PSK [AES], WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] etc) I cannot connect. I tried the commands in that post and got the following:

Own Ip- I get replies no problem
Gateway - I get reply from my own ip with Destination host unreachable - I get reply from my own ip with Destination host unreachable - Ping request could not find host Please check the name and try again.

Any help with this is much appreciated, thank you.

Check the channel you are using on the router and get it as far from cordless phone as possible. Try to use upper channels 6-11.

A:2Wire/Netgear Port Forwarding Issue

You will need to set the 2wire modem up in "bridged" mode and allow your router to do the port forwarding/firewall, and PPPoE (if needed).

This link may be outdated, but a quick Google search came up with this:

Either way, you will access it via the modem's control panel and in "bridged mode" it will pass all the public IP address, etc. to your router.

The installation process doesn't complete successfully, stalls at about 75%. I've seen chatter on the internet saying that there is a conflict between the NetGear and 2Wire but haven't seen many work-arounds suggested.

A:Issue with Netgear RangeMax wireless USB adapter drivers

Crossposting due to potential relevance:

I have gotten a new kind of BSOD error, which has appeared once when resuming from hibernate and then again when entering hibernate. Both have the code 0x000000d1 and the string DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Attached is the ZIP file. Interestingly, both of these happened when a USB flash drive was plugged into the front panel USB port while shutting down/starting up. One of the BSODs is traced back to "WN111v2w7x.sys" which I think is a wireless driver?

Hi there,

Recently bought an N300 wireless adapter for my PC. I have a normal router which I usually connect to the internet using an ethernet. But sometimes I go wireless.

Initially it all worked wonderfully, without the ethernet my PC was able to pick up the wifi and I could browse, however, after about 5 minutes the bar graph in the bottom right hand corner gains a yellow triangle. Then limited access announces itself and soon enough no page loads at all.

The Netgear 'genie' doesn't show any problems with the connection, the problem seems to be noticed by the windows connection icon in the bottom right hand screen. If I try to reconnect I don't get given the network options I once had.

Hope the above makes sense...any ideas?

It says that its connected, however I cant access the internet? I threw on my belkin wireless adapter, and connected no problems, The rj-45 cable works with a different network card. But for some reason it does not for this card?

Hi All,

I recently put in a Netgear firewall, configured it, its running no problem. Then I setup a new Netgear N600 wireless router, configured it, gave it a static IP, connected to it, works like a charm. Thing is, when I try to access the web gui I receive nothing.. Is the Netgear firewall taking priority or something? I went directly connected to the netgear wifi router and double checked to make sure that there was no settings restricting administration from wifi users, etc.. Anyone have a similar setup ?

Thanks All

You sure been busy! Have "seen" you all over this place.

Is the FVS318G router connected to the N600 router's WAN port or a LAN port?

If WAN have you changed one of the routers so that they don't both use the same LAN subnet (I didn't check each one, but they probably both default to the same).

If LAN have you disabled the N600's Dhcp server?

Should be easy!....
But I cannot get my NEW Netgear N600 router to communicate with a NEW Netgear WN 3000 RP extender.

The instructions say to press the WPS button on the extender then the WPS button on the router. No WPS button exists on the router!

The instructions also I can use any wireless network manager utility to set this up. Can't find where this is in Windows 7.

The I pad has found the NETGEAR_EXT address but won't connect. And the light on the extender does no indicate teh router is communicating with it.

Thought this process would be a simple plug and play, but...frustration!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I'm running a DSL connection from a router to my wireless laptop. Regularly my speeds aren't quite as advertised but I still get 2-4 Mb/s generally. Lately it seems my web browsing has been sluggish and doing a speed test, this is proven.

However, bittorrent downloads go much faster than normal browsing.

Can anyone explain to me why this might be? I thought my slow speed could be due to my latency, but that doesn't explain to me why bittorrent is so much faster!

Hello everyone, I am using a linksys WRT54GS wireless router and usually works fine, but lately I noticed it's been getting slow speeds and then when I restart the router it goes back to normal and very fast for about 20-30 minutes (could vary and be longer sometimes). But then after that it goes back to it's slow speed until I restart it again.

When I bypass the router it works fine with direct connection, all my firmware is upgraded, getting 100% signal strength, it's not just my computer because when I ping from the router admin panel it gets all request timed out aswell.

Thanks for any help I can get.

A:Issue on download speed

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.

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.

Any ideas?

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.

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...

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?

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.

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

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?

My girlfriend just got one of these laptops as a gift from her step dad. It's used, it's his old one. The issue is, in the bios, it registers as 2GHz but Windows says it only has a 495MHz processor. It runs super slow.

What could be the problem?

Hey guys So - WIN Hang Speed: SSD 8.1 Activity, R/W 100% System Issue 0 I've just been experiencing a weird issue with WIN 8.1 - 100% SSD Activity, 0 R/W Speed: System Hang Issue my system where it hangs and it is very unresponsive at random intervals of time in fact the first clue that I had an issue was when boot to WIN 8.1 - 100% SSD Activity, 0 R/W Speed: System Hang Issue desktop time was much longer than normal and desktop startup apps took forever to load My system would hang very often right when desktop begins to load in and also when opening various web links or even at random intervals And by unresponsive I mean that I can usually freely still move around my cursor and task manager is still shows moving graphs but if I click within a program the program will not respond to the command or it will be come not responding I've pulled up task manager to investigate during these periods of unresponsiveness correspond to when my C drive my SSD is at activity but read write speed Checking resource monitor and details do not show any application using the disk to cause the activity In fact at times during activity in resource monitor the processes list slowly decreases until there is nothing there and then resets itself I've also attempted to play games and have task manager on the side to see what effect this would have At several points I would encounter the same active R W speed but the game DOES NOT hang and I can game fine However if I were to click on let's say a web browser or a file explorer window while gaming and having the active R W speed it would respond to - click actions and then hang When I was typing this up I experienced active R W speed several times but sometimes I can continue typing and then randomly the browser becomes unresponsive What I've tried to fix it - Disable prefetch or something similar in chrome - Enable writing permissions to Skype - chkdsk f Results here - sfc scannow - Full System Scan with Bit defender scanned to after hours I cancelled it after that threats found - As a side note HD Sentinel shows the drive at due to lifetime use - SMART att here According the same program the max speed the drive has achieved since I've experienced this issue has been around MB s in terms of transfer rates clearly much slower than what it's capable of - CCCleaner cleaned out registry and some temp files - Benchmark programs such as crystaldisk do not properly finish as when it is running active R W speed would occur and the system hangs Specs - Crucial MX GB SSD Suspected issue - GB External Drive - GB RAM - i T This shows a period of normal activity and then unresponsiveness right when activity hits During activity what resource manager shows the processes list decreases and eventually results in the picture below Showing active R W speed yet not processes with disk activity Any help or suggestions are appreciated EDIT - I've also tried updating to the latest SSD firmware but that hasn't helped - Crucial Storage Management shows a health drive I guess it's based on SMART atts - Tried to run a short self test through HD Sentinel I let it run for minutes where I noticed that the progress bar was not progressing after the minute mark task manager showed minimum disk activity so I cancelled that

Try to let it run entirely for the short test. U may choose to use SeaTools for Windows. Don't wanna rule out harddisk is faulty though.u can get the files at

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.

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.

The thumbnails on my Speed Dial are all scrambled, some appear more than once, and others don't appear at all.

I am using Opera 9.52 build 10108. I am using a skin of my own design because I found the default of Opera 9.x too hard to read. I am currently running the Java Runtime Environment v 1.6.

Does anyone know what is causing this problem?

You wouldn't be able to post a screenshot for me to talk a look at. I have to apologies, I have never used Opera so I am not very familiar with it. If you need help posting screenshots follow this link.
