Having problems with your Acer Aspire 1640Z Notebook ?

High cpu usage, my laptop is so slow - Acer Aspire 1640Z Notebook


Answers :

An overloaded CPU can make a PC unbearably slow. If the CPU spikes happen rarely and correct themselves quickly, don't worry about it. But if they keep coming back or don't go away, you have to find out what's wrong and fix it.

The most obvious culprit is a virus, spyware, or some other malicious software. Scan your system regularly with a good spy-catching program such as Spybot Search & Destroy. free, Next, update your antivirus definitions and run a full virus scan. Set your antivirus program to check for updates and do a full scan automatically at least once a week.

If virus and spyware scans don't find the problem, it may be due to a malware program that's too new to be caught. More likely, however, is an unintended problem with an honest program.

If your system's CPU spike is constant, the software at fault probably loads when Windows boots. Select Start, Run
, type msconfig, and press Enter. Click the Startup
tab, uncheck suspicious options one at a time, and reboot until the problem stops
Hi:
\015\012Most likely your laptop has too many things running, and other issues.
\015\012
\015\012If you can, the best bet is to save all your important files and pictures, and do a system restore to factory specs.
\015\012
\015\012If you can't do that, try some other things first:
\015\012
\015\012Make sure you have a good antivirus program running on this laptop, and scan the entire hard drive. If you don't have a Antivirus program,
\015\012You can download a free one , that works well, at :
\015\012www.free.avg.com
\015\012
\015\012Next, go to control panel, ad and remove programs:
\015\012work your way down the installed program list, and uninstall anything that is a trial program, any toolbars that you might have installed, or any programs that you don't want or need.
\015\012
\015\012Next, run disk clean up , then disk degragmenter, and hopefully ;you gain back a little speed!
