A slow computer could becaused by a number of things -1. InsufficientRAM memory - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to atleast 1Gb of RAM.2. Registryproblems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys.Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc.3. Uninstall/removeunused programs, this will also free up hard disk space.4. Notenough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn'tbeen configured to manage it.5. Installlatest Windows updates.6. Updatevirus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc.7. Clearthe Internet cache for faster browsing.8. Harddisk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioningefficiently.Runthe following programs - Disk Cleanup -removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard diskspace.DiskDefragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and thereforethe hard disk access is faster.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 6000 not picking up wireless signal

There are lots of problems of using wireless LANs in metal buildings, especially if you are trying to go outside the building and into another building. What I have had to do where I work is put an external antenna on the wireless router and use that to transmit the signal beyond the metal shell of the building.

If that still does not yeild satisfactory results, you can set up another wireless router in the "home" location with an external antenna to act as a recieving point for the other router in the office ... essentially this is setting up a site to site network. With both routers working together you should resolve the wireless drop out issue.

Bestbuy also sells a Wireless Booster, this works the same way as I explained with using two routers however if you go that route be sure you have the option to either add an antenna or you can place it near a window (glass cuts down on your signal than steel).

If this fails look at replacing the wireless card; this setup will still provide benefical even if you need to replace the card as it will provide stronger signals in stormy weather as well.

Try this: remove your battery, unplug power, press and hold power button for at least 20 seconds, plug power cord back in but not the battery, press power and see if you get normal boot. If this is the case, your battery probably needs replaced.

Roller Coaster Kingdom Slow Performance Tip


When you are playing the Facebook game Roller Coaster Kingdom, does it run slowly? There are a few good tips to use to make Roller Coaster Kingdom faster if it is running too slow.
Fix Roller Coaster Kingdom from Running Slow
1. Use a lower impact web browser, like Google Chrome. Firefox is a little better than Internet Explorer, but Chrome is the best. You will see a noticeable difference.
2. Close all other programs and browser windows.
3. Don't try to play the game when you have guests in your park. It isn't going to hurt you to send them all in at once, but if you try to play when they are running around then watch out. Make sure to get all your business done before hand, and then send them in before you quit.
Finally, we have to remember that the game is programmed to require a pretty fast computer. If you don't have the newest machine around, you can expect the game to run slowly. Hopefully in the future Zynga will try to reduce the system resources that this Facebook game takes up, but until then we are all going to have to utilize these performance tips!

Facebook is being real slow in loading pages and it skips around what is going with the site?it is very irritating many people have had the same problem lately so it' not my computer it's a brandnew...


Facebook has been having problems for days like you describe. It is on their server end, not yours. Typically it means that either too many people are accessing the site at the same time, they don't have enough servers to users, or a problem between the user and their servers, somewhere along the net.

Amazon's 'cloud' network went down the other day taking amazon and many other sites offline for hours. As this problem seemed to show up around the same period of time it could be that facebook is using some of their storage or that the outage caused a clog on the net.

Bottomline is that there really isn't anything much you can do but wait until they get it fixed on their end.

Firefox slow, why


"Fast" or "slow" is a subjective and unscientific description. If Firefox is not running at the speed it usually does, you should try disabling any add-ons you have recently installed and see if the problem corrects itself. If Firefox does not perform in the way you expect it to on a given computer, the computer may be equipped with a slower processor or less RAM than you are used to.

When I type on my HP all-in-one while on the internet, the keyboard gets sluggist, misses letters and slows down to almost stopping. It makes no difference if I use the wireless keyboard or a USB keyboard.

Slow start-up


check if you have a CD left in the cdrom drive.
Lots of things can cause the start-up delay too:
- virus and spywares. Clean.
- bad sectors on hard disk (backup and plan for replacement)
- low physical memory. check in the Performace tab of the Taskbar (window$$$ only) PF should not be more than that of physical

Monitor or Desktop itself problem?


that status line was designed together with your OS, it seems that your PC was getting slow in boot..

A number of factors, having little to do with the age or capabilities or your system, can create excruciating system slowness. They include the following:

Operating System
File System (how you've organized files on your PC)
Applications
Hardware

The Windows OS (operating system) is notoriously inefficient, which can affect performance. The file system also impacts Windows and hardware performance. How you work with applications can improve system speed, as can some basic hardware updates.
