Windows 7: Just annoying slownesses

Just annoying slownesses

Is there any reason why moving my mouse while pressing the left button over icons makes my computer slow and also the animation? *especially on the desktop

Why the hell "Super Energy Saver" power scheme on my laptop is so slow that only 5 seconds after I click something it responds?!?!?!?
swtiching between tabs, clicking Start button and many many many many more!


I think I need to buy an alienware or something...:ma d:

Senteaf Hi and Welcome

You are at the absolute minimum requirements for RAM and Windows 7- 64 bit.
That's the reason your laptop is probably running so slowly.


You can increase its performance by changing the power plan to something like "balanced" but it will use more battery (if you are on battery) and therefore reduce overall battery time before the next charge.


Recommendations include:

1-Buy more Ram (at least 4 gigs)

2-limit the applications loading at startup by going into msconfig and unchecking un-needed applications in the startup tab.


3-Run less applications simultaneously.

Thanks!
Yes I am afraid this is the reason for most of my problems(regarding performance with win 7)
I can buy more ram.

Now I have questions:

1.
  • How do I know if I have free slot for another module?

2+3.
  • I thought my CPU is "good" enough for multi-tasking -- as written on Intel's website...
  • Do you think it is, and the ram is the bottleneck?
  • I have verified my ram type, but I would like to see a list of all types. I want to make sure it is of a high standard.

64 bit runs just fine in 2GB....it should NOT be slow.

The system itself needs at least 2GB. Other programs need more memory hence the user will encounter some 'slowness'.

right, 2gb is not just fine for 64bit...

Hmm, have you ran all the performance tools that Windows has installed, like Disk Defragmenter, System Configuration Utility, perhaps Disk Cleanup? Those can help dramatically, especially the System Config tool. Also, on a laptop, certain manufacturers install battery "utilities", generally just bloatware that Windows has been built to manage, try changing the power scheme to Balanced or High Performance. An Intel i3 is definitely capable of being able to run a lot of things at once, and two gigs of RAM is generally ok with 64 bit systems. Unless of course, your graphics card is using some of that and you're left with less. But whatever....

My graphic card is a chip(on the motherboard)

so it's basic, I mean integrated or something.
I know it does not have dedicated memory so it uses my RAM for processing, maybe even CPU sometimes.

And my laptop is new, bought it 5 months ago.

it just feels really slow, Windows UI/GUI is slow(perhaps my hard disk is the reason), browsing is slow(32bit firefox).

but now I know that I don't have enough RAM, my hard disk is slow, and my graphic chip is crap...oh well...

Exactly, RAM requirements should not be the cause of your slowdown. 2GB Windows 7 64bit provides generally perfect performance. Try using MalwareBytes AntiMalware just to check for viruses - it may not be a virus at all, but there's no harm in looking into it.

hahaha yeah right!

Are you serious? it is not just fine!

I have running:
1. Firefox - 13 tabs (no intensive calculations for chip/cpu
2. explorer.exe open on drive C
