Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

Computer suddenly slow!

\015 Hey. Ok, so earlier today I carry my laptop downstairs to use it while I cook dinner, it was running fast, smooth, and absolutely perfect. I finished dinner, ate, and then I moved my laptop back upstairs. Once I moved it upstairs and sat down to use it, it was super slow. This has happened before, and I just don't understand how it can go from running perfectly fine for ages to just running slow upon moving it upstairs? Seriously, what is the deal?\015

Answers :

There could be a number of things that is slowing your computer down and it depends upon what is running on the computer and in the background.
\015\012For example. Someone could have hack into your computer, assuming you are on an unsecured wireless conection. A virus program is using or accessing data on your computer. Your virus program is running a scan on the computer. If you are on the Internet and the service is slow because of the amount of traffic through your ISP's connection.

\015\012The way to monitor what is going on is to run Windows Task Manager.
\015\012Press Ctrl-Alt-Del keys together to open Windows Task Manager.
\015\012There are 5 Tabs that view various functions. The Processes and the Performance tab give you details of what is going on.
\015\012In the Performance tab if the CPU is running nearly 100% that is why your computer appears slow.
\015\012In the Application tab, this shows which programs are opened and running, the more applications that are opened can make the computer slower.
\015\012In the Processes tab this shows exactly which process is running and who or what is using that process and the CPU usage. Click on the CPU label twice and it will sort the CPU usage from the highest to the lowest. You maybe able to determine the process which is causing the problem and work out if you can shut down this process/program or it is a problem that needs to be resolved.

\015\012I suggest that if you are using a wireless connection that it should be secured to prevent unauthorized access. Install a firewall and anti-virus program. Scan the computer for viruses and trojan horse programs etc.
