Also it's not a virus, spyware, etc... because i have ran 5 different virus scanners, 2 spyware scanners and 1 malware scanner, i have even used ccleaner to clean the computer registery.
I have basically ran everything i could. So i don't know what it could be, just before it took 30 minutes for my laptop to respond.
Have you used a registry scanner to ensure your registry is optomized? Also, how full is your hard drive? Lastly check with 4allmemory.com allowing it to scan your computer to see if you could upgrade your RAM. I tried doing a search for your computer myself but it only showed me what to buy, not the capacity you can use. You can have the site scan your computer for you and it'll probably give you more information.
when using ccleaner did you run the cleaner part of it to empty temp file,ect ect .
a lot of times a bad harddrive or ram can cause a computer to become slow ,you need to troubleshoot by running a harddrive scan ad a ram scan , harddrive manufactures supply drive scanniong software on there web site,you need to know the name of the hard drive to get the right tools , ,and you can use memtest86 to check you ram ,,you will need to create bootable cdroms to run these scans .memtest86, you would run memtest overnight for best results .
also i foung the specs on that model laptop and it will take upto 4gig of ram compaq
Hi , could be a rogue background process hogging resources so I suggest opening task manager > processes and note any process running at significant cpu power , while the computer should be at idle
Then note the process and manually end that process and evaluate computer performance
If the computer runs normally then investigate the noted process and associated programs or app
Start at the beginning. Test your hard drive with hdtune, google will easily find it. If hd tune shows any bad sectors then that's why your laptop is slow and it also means it's time for a new hard drive.
Hi , ok I suggest run a Ubuntu Linux distro in "try mode" - if the laptop processes normally then most likely a software issue regarding the native installation, if not then most likely hardware including heat issues
Try mode runs from ram memory without changing any hdd located files, so is relatively safe as a diagnostic tool if you want to keep the existing Windows, however backup valued personal files before running - if you can not and Linux runs ok , you can access Windows files and copy files to removable media
