Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Fan Running, computer heating, task bar disappearing, everything is slow

\015 On Monday my computer started to get warm and the fan started running noticably for the first time since I purchased in December 2006. Everything has been slow this week: moving from program to program, document to document, slow internet, typing sometimes is delayed, programs have become unresponsive more than normal with those error mesages being sent to Microsoft. I have done all the upgrades from Microsoft and everything seems to be up to date for my Onecare. Have done a defragment. None of this has really helped. Even now as I type the toolbar at the bottom of the page has disappeared as have the documents I had open and was working on, including outlook. I also get thios message NView desktop manager has detected that the application explorer is not responding.\015

Answers :

It might be some hardware or software problem,

don't run extra programs you are not really using and save you computer performance.

also you might want to give your computer a goooooood virus check. some viruses o tend to give such problems.

it might also depen from some hardware problem but that is least probable.

If you get REALLY desperate you might need to format you computer,

i hope you resolve you problem cos i have been living with a really some computer for years (it was really old) and have only lately upgraded my computer, and slow computers drive you crazy

good luck
It sounds like you've already started doing some things that can help you discover what is causing this problem, and that's good, but before I offer any more ideas, can you please tell me two things:

1. How much RAM (memory) does your computer have?

2. How much total hard disk space does your computer have, and of that, how much is available?

Initially, my fan would run fast and then slow. Then, it began to shut off frequently by itself; the monitor would state "monitor sleeping." Now, the CPU will not power on at all.
