Ate you attempting to update the BIOS because of a needed function? Or to fix a problem?
Because this computer is old, and slow. And I was told and had read that this would help speed it up a bit.Ate you attempting to update the BIOS because of a needed function? Or to fix a problem?
Well it's my friend that actually rebuilt the laptop for me. but the model # is just what i gave in the description. U52F Asus laptop. If you could give some other ways i would truly appreciate it!!May I ask who told you updating the BIOS would speed things up? That's not really true....BIOS is simply to enhance compatibility with new hardware.
I would be glad to assist you in trying to speed up your computer via other means if you want.
Last resort is a bios update.
What's the full model number of the pc?
yeah it shouldnt be slow but the problem is that it is! my friend thinks it could possibly be a hardware problem and not a software problem. he thinks it could possibly be the motherboard.It may take a bit of work to repair any possible damage that might have been done by advanced system care. I'm willing to help you if you're willing to put in the time.
Also your system has i5 and 6gb of RAM so it should not be slow.
I have uninstalled all of those programs yes! Sorry I have been out of town the past week. I have downloaded and installed Mbam as well.All the programs I recommended you uninstall have been uninstalled , correct?
Have you downloaded and installed Mbam? Let me know when you have.
Your friend MIGHT be correct, however using the advanced system care most likely wreakes havoc on your operating system.
Open a command prompt with Administrator privileges.
(Click start type in CMD in the search bar...at the top of the results right click command prompt and select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR)
Type into the command prompt window
SFC /SCANNOW press enter
Let me know the results of the SFC
I've had it on and idle for a good 2 hours now so it's running alright. However it becomes extremely slow when opening any apps especially Lightroom which as mentioned earlier is my main reason for having this thing ha.How is the computer performing as of now?
Thats what I did to begin with...Try running the SFC in command prompt with administrator privileges
