Okey...scrolling in windows explorer really slow when I search for files created the last month.
Browsing is slow.games, movies, everything slow.
resizing windows GUI windows is also slow...

I don't know why... I thought this laptop should be fine.

As I said, we should seperate system performance from internet performance. From what you explain, the slowness of the system probably stems from a slow 5400 RPM disk. A defrag may help a little, but the best cure for that is to replace it with an SSD.

As first step to get a handle on the internet I suggest you measure the line speed. Pick the closest from here: Speed Test : upload and download | DSLReports.com, ISP Information

I don't think the problem is internet connection...

What do you mean by "slowness of the system probably stems from a slow 5400 RPM disk"
and "SSD"


I thought intensive content on internet might be slow because I have that integrated graphic card and or maybe my cpu chip or any other hardware component

What are the specs of your HDD? I suspect it is a 5400 RPM drive because they are frequently used in laptops.

To get a better idea about SSDs, read a bit in this thread: Show us your SSD performance

The internet performance is ruled by your line speed. There is little difference between a modest system and a high end system. And the integrated graphics should suffice to perform fluently.

yes this is my hdd
but I don't know why browsing videos and games are slow...........
"jumpy" graphics and video also slow. I can't understand!!!!

I have a good CPU
enough RAM
HDD(affects disk operations)
and Intel HD Graphics(which you say is sufficient)

My memory:
Memory Type DDR3 (PC3-8500F)
Speed 533 MHz (DDR3 1066)

What is "1066"?
What is "(PC3-8500F)"
533MHz is speed I guess, isn't is slow?
1066 mhz refers to your double data rate speed of your RAM kit, so the actual speed is 533.

As I said, the integrated graphics should suffice for normal operation - e.g. playing a video that is stored on your system or an external device (disk, USB stick). But that being said, you should realize that the integrated graphice is very basic and will not suffice for most games - unless they are really benign like Hearts.

But as soon as you are operating from the web, you are also subject to the hasards of the web. Those can be slow line speed, too many hops, a slow server at the other end and problems with the flash player. Those problems you have to analyze case by case to see where the problem might be.
