Acer :: Aspire 5100 Running Extremely Slow

Nov 2, 2008

I'm guessing I did this to myself somehow but I can't figure out how to fix it. It originally came with Visa but I downgraded to XP and had been using it without problems for awhile. It started getting a little slow so I recently installed (and soon after uninstalled) a bunch of optimizing / driver updating programs. After playing around with those, my laptop is running super slow... I can't watch videos, the buffer causes it to just show the image while the audio plays... After running Dr. Hardware it looks like my CPU is only running at 800mhz which is a lot slower than it used to.

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t Running Extremely Slow After Disassembly

Mar 2, 2010

i just disassembled my dv5t to fix an issue i was having with the screen. the screen seems to work fine now however it is running ungodly slow.

in order to get to my screen cables i had to take out the Following:

-hard drive
-WLAN module
-Switch cover & keyboard
-the display bezel

i'm not exactly sure what might be causing this because it was working just fine (except for my screen issue) before the disassembly

also it seems to run a little bit better in safe mode but its still slow

after playing with it for a while its main problem is booting and programs are crashing. it takes about 10 minutes to fully boot and then it runs at a normal speed however programs keep crashing like crazy.

HP/Compaq :: Hp L2000 Going Extremely Slow

Apr 8, 2010

I have an hp l2005co (lance armstrong edition) that has started to go extremely slow. I tried formatting and even downgrading to xp. The xp installation took 6 yes 6 hours. I ram memtest86 and it found zero errors. I also replaced the hd with a new one and I got the same thing. I got an application that tells me the temperatures and idle they would hover at around 60 degrees celsius. I took the computer apart and took the terrible little cushion off the heatsink and applied some thermal grease and now it idles at around 48 degrees celsius. Even after I did that, it's still running excruciatingly slow. Startup times increased drastically though.

Dell :: ! XPS M1330 Extremely Slow On Startup

Mar 17, 2010

So lately (the last few days, just out of nowhere) I've been starting to have a problem with an XPS m1330. Every now and again the notebook starts Windows

A lot of the times it doesn't go past the welcome screen (after entering the user password etc.)

If it does get past the welcome screen it just is extremely slow for the first 5-7min then, it's normal again .....

Dell :: Latitude D620 Extremely Slow When Charging

Dec 9, 2009

When I unplug the charger, the laptop returns to normal speed. Does anyone know the reason why this is occurring and if it can be fixed?

Also, I don't think the laptop is actually charging

In the task manager I see the CPU usage at around 20% when its not plugged in, and the moment I plug it in, it goes to 100%, then I unplug it and it instantly goes back to 20%.

HP 2000-208CA Networking :: Notebook Is Extremely Slow

Oct 24, 2014

Have an HP 2000-208CA Notebook that came with 64 bit, WIN7.  This notebook is extremely slow.  The processor and memory I believe is the biggest issue with this notebook.  Have installed WIN7, 32 bit.  Now can't find the correct wifi drivers for this notebook.  Have downloaded all wifi drivers that were listed for WIN7, 32bit for an HP 2000-208CA notebook, but none of them work.  Any alternative wifi drivers?

Dell XPS 17 L702x :: Battery Charging Extremely Slow

Feb 15, 2013

Today my battery charging stopped working properly.

It does charge (or seems so) but it takes about 5 hours for each 1% percent.

The battery is the 9 cells one and the charger is 150 w.

The battery wage is at about 50% but it was charging as fast as always until today.

Things I have already tried:

- Charger is recognized by the BIOS as a 150 w charger.

- The laptop works without the battery (with the charger plugged in, obviously).

- Reflashed BIOS (version is A19).

- Recalibration of the battery.

All the warranty periods are over (both laptop and battery). Is it possible that I need a new charger even though the laptop is working without battery? Could I need a new battery?

HP Envy TS 15-J102sa Networking :: Notebook Extremely Slow At Times

May 23, 2014

I've had my HP envy Touchsmart 15-J102sa for about 3 months now and ever since I've had it, it runs really slow at time. It's occurs more often when I'm on the internet browsing or watching a video on youtube. When It starts running slow, it say the page is not responding for about 3 mins then it displays the page and start working at normal speed again. I really need any sort of solutions that might fix it, I know for a fact that it's not a virus because I scan pc everytime I turn it on.

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 Running Extremely Hot

Sep 20, 2009

lately my Inspiron 1720 has been running crazy hot, and overheating (actually shutting down) while playing games (specifically Sacred 2).

For example right now I am only running Firefox and HWMonitor, and here is an excerpt from the HWMonitor report:

Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T5750 hardware monitor

Temperature sensor 070C (157F) [0xF] (core #0)
Temperature sensor 175C (166F) [0xA] (core #1)

In fact shortly after saving that report, my computer actually shut down from heat. I have since restarted it and it is currently running at a roughly constant 52C.

The CPU gets into the 70s and overheats a lot when playing Sacred 2. However, strangely even after closing that game the temperature doesn't come down, such as what happened above .....

Acer :: Laptop Running Vista Slow

Jun 6, 2009

I've been trying to get Vista Ultimate to run on my laptop for a while now, and every time I install using a clean installation, it runs painfully slow. If i have more than one window open its not even worth using. So I always run back to XP and I'll be honest in saying that I'm quite bored with it.

how to make it run better with Aero?

My Laptop's Specs Are
Brand: Acer Extensa 4220
CPU: Intel Celeron CPU 560 - 2.13GHz
RAM: 1GB DDR2
Graphics: Moblie Intel GMA X3100

HP Pavilion 17 F035ND OS/Software :: Bluetooth Won't Connect Properly And WLAN Is Extremely Slow

Nov 28, 2014

I recently bought this laptop (HP Pavillion 17 F035ND) with win8 pre installed.Because of the limits of my school's software I can not use win8.So naturally, I downgraded to win7, and installed everything I needed.But I have problems with 2 drivers, Bluetooth driver and the WLAN driver.Bluetooth won't connect properly, and the WLAN is extremely slow.My driver software says that I need Broadcom drivers for both of them, but the HP downloads only provide Intel or Realtek.
 
Is the hardware really Broadcom? I know my way around computers and I searched the entire web.The bluetooth doesn't bother me that much, but I really need the WLAN drivers..link me to the correct drivers for my laptop with win7?

Dell Latitude E6400 :: Running Extremely Warm Especially When Video Is Playing

Nov 28, 2014

The grill on the left side of my Latitude E6400 gets extremely warm--especially when video is playing. The bottom side of the case, on the left side, gets very warm, as well. I've been able to confirm that the fan behind the grill on the bottom side *does* run periodically; however, the grill and underside remain very warm.

How warm? Right now, after playing a video for about 15 minutes, SpeedFan reports the following temperatures: GPU (162F), HD0 (109F), Temp1 (145F), Core 0 (140F), Core 1 (142F). All of the items except HD0 have a flame icon--indicating an abnormally-high temperature. Worse, I've seen the temperatures considerably higher than the above.

I've had this laptop for about five years. The latest BIOS and drivers are installed. It's working OK, otherwise. This problem started, suddenly, perhaps a year ago.

Acer :: My Aspire 5520 Laptop Fan Is Extremely Loud

Nov 24, 2008

I've had my Acer Aspire 5520 for about 6 months now, and I did not get a warranty with it. Within the last month or so the fan has begun to get really loud. I have ways of quieting it down temporarily, hanging it off the table or propping it up, but even then the fan will burst into loud, annoying noises suddenly and for no apparent reason. It's kinda like a click-click-click noise, like when you put a strip of paper into a house fan (I know we all did this as a kid...) and the blades hit the paper as they go by, making really obnoxious noises...

So anyway, I'm just wondering if this is fixable, or if it isn't where I can find a replacement fan that works for my computer. I'm a software junky, and I don't really know enough about hardware, so when I went on Newegg and Frys websites I was unable to figure out what kind of fans would work for my laptop. If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate it, as I spend a lot of time in the library at my school and I don't want to disturb everyone else in the whole building. In fact, when ever I shop for laptops, keyboards are one of the first things I look at- if the keyboard is too loud or awkward I will NOT buy that laptop.

Acer Aspire V3-551G :: Fan Extremely Loud - Overheating When Run Games Or Ubuntu

Jan 19, 2015

I have the Acer Aspire V3-551G (specifically the V3-551G-8454 model) and since I got it the laptop has had some overheating issues when I run games or Ubuntu. My solution to that was just to stop running games and Ubuntu, and besides that it's worked pretty well besides Explorer deciding to crash randomly (it doesn't happen too often though).
 
However, I've had the laptop for a while now and and not too long ago I noticed the fan would rarely become extremely loud. As the weeks went by, the sound became more frequent, especially if I moved the laptop even just a little while it was on, so I stopped moving the laptop. But now, even with the laptop sitting still on a table, there is about a 40%-50% chance that it will have an extremely loud fan when I start it.
 
What's weird is that sometimes I noticed the fan is too quiet too. When it does this I assume that the fan is actually off which shouldn't be happening because the laptop gets super hot. Sometimes after a while of silence the loud noise come up too, which is nice because now the fan is on, but is also not good because of the volume of the noise.
 
I'm pretty sure problem is coming from the GPU (or whatever the big fan on the left underside of the laptop is). I also suspect the fan had actually been the culprit of the overheating (which consequently caused Explorer to crash sometimes).

Acer :: Aspire 5100 And The AMD RM-70 CPU

May 26, 2009

I wanted to upgrade my processor on my Aspire 5100 from the so so tl-50 to the RM-70. I am wondering if anyone else has tried this and if so, did you have any problems installing. from what I have researched, AMD is using the same bios for the the Turion processors and the RM-70 seems to be the one that uses the same wattage range, socket and power consumption.

Dell :: Slow Wireless Connection: Studio 1555, Intel 5100 Card

Aug 31, 2009

as of 2 hours ago my high speed has been stuck at 1 Mbps, much slower then its usual 65+ that I've had over the last 6 days since I got my laptop.

I'm thinking I may have received a faulty wireless card, since when I checked my wired desktop downstairs it's still at it's usual 100Mbps, and my sisters Inspiron 1420 has its normal high speed.

Now when I restart my wireless adapter (Intel 5100) the speed fluctuates between 4-38 Mbps for about a minute before dropping- and staying at 1 Mbps once again.

I checked if there are any computers stealing my wireless connection just in case, and as I thought no one is .....

Acer :: Aspire 5100 CPU Spikes

Jun 10, 2008

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 AMD 62x dualcore tk-53 i think its at like 1.7ghz, it came with Vista, I put XP back on it, came with 1gb of ram I upgraded to 4gb hoping it would run fine. To get to the point. When I first got the computer it ran great, however now sometime with it has brought it to this annoying spike in my CPU. I've tried everything I could to keep it down, but it spikes over 100% randomly and at the worst times. I've ran Process Explorer and watched when it spiked, nothing unusual. I've watched my task manager, nothing unusual. I've defraged, ran virus scans, disabled my virus protection, uninstalled it, reinstalled it, reformated, restarted, any and everything I could. I bought a stand for the laptop and a fan so it doesnt overheat. I've check my power settings, my page file remains the same around 555 on average even during the spikes.
