Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-FE550G Notebook ?

Computer is very slow websurfing, would changing the hard-drive from 100 gb to 320gb help alot with this, and if so, will I loose all my stored info?


Answers :

You can check to see how much free space you have on your 100 gb drive ... just right click on the C: drive icon .. and then select "properties" .. if you have lots of space left then thats not your problem and a new 320 gb wont help .. if you see that you are running out of space (like less than 10 or 20 gb) then it will help .. you can transfer or ghost your entire drive over to the new drive if you have the proper equipment .. or if you take it somewhere to have it done .. you may have to reregister your operating system but that only takes a phone call or an internet click .. much more likely your computer is full of spy and ad-ware unless you have a good security suit that takes care of that sort of stuff ... if you dont have any anti spy-ware program then "spybot search and destroy" is a good start and its free ... some anti virus programs can really slow a computer down .. if you have a good one stick with it .. if you dont then AVAST or AVG are really good and free ... if you havent done so you can "clean up your hard drive" .. that includes getting rid of temporary file clutter and defragging the hard drive ..you should do that every couple of months or schedule it to happen at set intervals .. check how much memory you have .. most computers today should have 1gig or more memory .. if you have only 256 or 500 meg then things will run slow .. depending on what your operating system is .. XP will work ok on 500meg Vista wont .. ...both can benifit form increased memory ..

My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all. The power cord is working and the lights go on for a second while I am pushing the button to turn it on, but the computer won't turn on. HP told me the problem was the motherboard. Do you think that's really the problem or could it be something else?
