Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My Laptop suddenly takes 15 minutes to turn on from the loading screening (where it says acer after its turned on and the blue loading bar is going) and simple tasks are now slower, such as the media player cannot play songs without it skipping, the mouse lags and other software seems to take longer to load.


Answers :

The best thing you can do is add more RAM. As more programs and documents are loaded the more RAM it needs. However, there are also a couple of other things you can try first. This will clean up all the old /tmp files that are not needed and also fix your hard drive so all the data is together and not spread out.
click on start>programs>accessories>system tools>disk cleanup. Run this first to get rid of the junk files that are left on your computer by websites
After the disk cleanup go back to the same location and run Defrag.
Each time you delete a file it leaves a blank space on the hard drive. after a while it takes longer to find files. The defrag will push all the data together in a row so it is faster to find.
Hope this helps.

MediaPlayer problem I am running Vista and using Media Player for music on my 1 1/2 year old HP laptop. I am noticing that some of the songs on my laptop that use to play fine are now "scratching". The ones that do this start fine for a few seconds and then it sounds like it scratches or skips as if a record or CD were playing. Another explaination of what it is doing is, that it sounds like the volume is up too loud and the speakers cannot handle it, but I've played other songs at the same volu

Sound Skipping: Over the last week I've noticed that any time I play media on my computer it seems to skip. I thought it was a problem with my media player but I have tried playing media on Winamp, iTunes, Windows Media Player and Media Jukebox and the skipping continues. I'm certain it's not a problem with corrupt files because the skipping also occurs on websites like YouTube. A friend suggested it was a problem with my soundcard or drivers.
