So my parents bought this new hp computer and as described by the salesperson it is the "latest" (or so it was in january) but for an unknown reason it seems to be very slow and it's very frustrating sometimes coz the whole point of buying this computer was to help my mum in doing her work faster.

So my parents bought this new hp computer and as described by the salesperson it is the "latest" (or so it was in january) but for an unknown reason it seems to be very slow and it's very frustrating sometimes coz the whole point of buying this computer was to help my mum in doing her work faster. So is there anyway that we can "boost it" (am I using that correctly?) anything that we can download to help? Or is there something that we were suppose to do? Your help would be deeply appreciated 🙂

As it is still under warranty, I assume, don't mess with it. Take it back. Take an assertive friend if you aren't. Tell the idiot your problem and insist it be fixed or exchanged. If he has no real answer then talk to his boss. Being slightly loud usually makes this process move along pretty well. If it is a start up problem due to manufacture BS tell THEM to turn them off. When their eyes glaze over with that question ask for an exchange to another manufacturer model of about the same price. Insist, it's your money. If they do nothing then ask for your money back. This also moves things along. It's YOUR money! YOU are the boss. FYI, HPs are famous for this. Never buy an HP (sue me HP!!). So pay a little more and you get more. If you get stuck with it then do a "manufacturer specific" Google search ( for example:"turn off/remove/disable HP installed start up programs"). Do your homework!! If you don't understand how to do it, find someone who does. Now days this is a real problem but I'm sure someone has a good, direct answer. Have fun!

It helps to check your background processes. Computers might do things like run antivirus scans, do search indexing (cataloging files so it can find them faster in the future), download and install updates, and many other tasks that can temporarily slow your system down.

A freshly-purchased computer will typically need many updates, so give it time.

1. First select startup (in windows 8) by task manager, and uncheck all unwanted prog. they delay the booting time.
2. Clear all temp file, downloaded file.
3. run disk checkup and disk clean up
4. defragment
5. cheak for virus
6. Increase RAM if possible.

If you are using windows then this is gonna happen always after sometime. your system is gonna slow day by day So you have to remove all those temp files ,all cache files and remove all unnecessary applications.if you take my advise just move to use linux or install a fresh copy of windows.
Samantha:
If it's Windows 8 search for 'services.msc' which will open a list of services on the device. Scroll down to 'superfetch' and switch it off. Had the same issue with my new (Acer) laptop and after turning it off it's been fine.
Chetan:
You can clear unwanted programs, do a Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmentation. If you got a OS CD with the laptop, use it to reinstall the OS and it may become fast again. You can also do a system restore to the day you bought the laptop.

your start up menu in system configuration is probably filled wiht unnedded stuf turn of everything except security having to much stuff in start up is like leaving every light in he house on for nothing
