    Solve a Slow Internet connection

    September 25th, 2011 Posted in Internet Error, Network Errors, PC Performance Comments Off on Solve a Slow Internet connection

     

    The internet has become an important part of our daily lives and when we have a slow internet connection it can not only be excruciatingly frustrating but it can also affect business. There are a number of things that can cause slow internet and here is a brief overview of troubleshooting solutions.

     

    What Causes the Internet to be slow?

    A slow internet connection can be the result of a number of issues including trouble with a home network, interference with a wireless signal or configuration problems with a broadband router.

     

    How to Fix having a Slow Internet connection?

    In order to find a solution to a slow internet connection you will have to troubleshoot a few potential problems to determine and correct the issue.

     

    Solution one: Router

    When configured improperly the broadband router, which is the core of a home network, can be a likely culprit for slowing your internet connection

    Steps:

    1. With your router connected and turned on, connect to the internet via a web browser.
    2. Use the router’s administration tool by entering the router’s address in the URL bar. The address of your router can be found in the documentation provided by the router’s manufacturer, however many are either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1.  The internet does not have to be functioning properly for you to go to this address.
    3. At the prompt for the username and password you will enter the information provided by the documentation from the manufacturer. Often the default for these are “admin”.
    4. At the prompting input the internet connection information that was given to you by your internet provider. You may also need to input the PPPoE password and username if you are using a DSL connection, although this varies and will be given to you by the internet provider as well.
    5. You will now need to verify that the network connection is working properly from your router to your computer. This can be seen on some routers by an indicator light, or you can check to see if the computer has received an IP address from the router.
    6. To check your IP address click on the Windows Start icon and then click Run
    7. Type winipcfg in the box that appears and press enter. This will give you your IP address should you have received one.

     

    Solution two: Troubleshooting other options

    There are several other possible reasons why you may have a Slow Internet connection and here are some troubleshooting steps that you can take to find the problem.

    Steps:

    1. It is possible, if you are using a wireless connection, that you are experiencing a slow internet connection because of signal interference. This can be from other wireless networks in a close proximity, or other devices sending interfering signals. Try and reposition your router so that it may reduce this problem, or move it entirely so that it may be out of range from other interference.
    2. A Slow Internet connection may also be the result of programs that are running in the background and utilizing most of your network resources without you knowing it. Try closing unnecessary programs that may be using up valuable resources.
    3. A Slow Internet Connection is often due to an internet worm. This is a program that infected your computer and is now working through your network using your resources without your knowledge. This can be a simple solution fixed by running your current antivirus program.

     

    I sincerely hope that one of these solutions will fix your slow internet connection and I thank you for visiting our site. Good luck and please let me know if I can help in any other way.

    Computer users occasionally come across a message of not enough memory as they are attempting to save something or use a specific kind of application. Knowing how to deal with it will help eliminate frustration.

     

    What is Not Enough Memory?

    Not Enough Memory is an error message that users typically receive when attempting to use particular software or external hardware that demands more memory than the system is currently able to furnish.

     

    What Causes Not Enough Memory?

    There are a variety of things that can cause a computer to have not enough memory. There can actually be a problem with the memory card of your computer. However, typically the problem is that temporary files may be taking up too much space on your hard drive because the RAM or Random Access Memory is depleted as you open more and more applications.

     

    How to Fix Not Enough Memory

    Despite the fact that there are multiple possible causes for the “not enough memory” error, there are a limited number of ways to resolve the issue. Follow the steps below to figure it out and get the solution you need.

    Solution

    Steps:

    1. If you received a second message in addition to your not enough memory message, follow instructions for correcting the second message. This usually takes care of the not enough memory error also.
    2. Go to the Start button and shut down your computer. Let it sit for a few minutes before restarting it.
    3. When your computer restarts, attempt the same action you received the error message with again. This is often enough to free up the necessary memory.
    4. Ensure that the computer you are using has sufficient RAM to handle the application you are attempting.
    5. Click on Task Manager and select the tab marked Performance to find out how much memory is being utilized and how it is used over time in a graph form.

    7. Opt for Programs; then Accessories; then SystemTools and finally DiskCleanup.
    8. Specify the appropriate hard disks you want cleaned and click OK.
    9. You may also need to remove old software that is outdated or unused. Do this by once again going to the Start button.
    10. Click on Settings; then Control Panel and then Add/Remove.
    11. A final way to free up memory is to empty your Recycle Bin on your desktop. Simply double-click on the icon; choose File and then Empty Recycle Bin. You will need to confirm your intention by answering Yes to the question.
    12. Finally shut down your computer again and start it back up before attempting the original application that caused your error.

    Solve a Slow Startup with these Simple Steps

    September 17th, 2011 Posted in Computer Boot Error, Computer Errors, PC Performance Comments Off on Solve a Slow Startup with these Simple Steps

     

    It can be very aggravating to turn on your computer and have it take an extraordinary amount of time to startup. Slow Startup is a problem that may want to make you pull out your hair, you can fix it.

     

    What Causes Slow Startup?

    There are three important things that your computer needs as resources to start and to work properly: hard disk space, memory space, and processing power. The problem is the Startup items that begin when you turn on your computer also need these valuable resources. The reality is you only have a finite amount of resources that you can use for these applications, and the more you run the slower your startup will be.

     

    How to Fix the Computer from Having a Slow Startup

    Although there may be other reasons why your computer is experiencing a Slow Startup, the main and most likely reason is too many applications opening at your startup.

     

    Solution: Selecting what is on startup

    Steps:

    1. Log onto your computer as the administrator.
    2. Click the Start tab
    3. Select Run and type msconfig in the dialog box
    4. press enter and follow the promptings in the system configuration window that pops up
    5. Depending on which version of Windows you are currently using you will likely need to select the Normal startup button, and then click on the Startup tab
    6. From the list that is populated you can select startup programs that you would like to disable.

    WARNING, do not disable these items without first having a good idea about what they are. Turning off the item listed as Realtex may seem like you are disabling Realplayer from starting or something of that nature, but in fact you would make your computer unable to play any sound. Turning off unused programs that do not need to start at startup and are using resources can be a great way to speed up your startup. But on the other hand turning off random items can have a disastrous effect on your computer and your ability to use it.

     

    Thank you and I appreciate you visiting this site. Let me know if this information was of help, or if you need further assistance. I hope that this has corrected your Slow Startup problem and good luck.
