Solved Do Changing original laptop charger affect Internet speed?

June 20, 2015 at 10:29:06
Specs: Windows 7
I have an old Gateway NV48, bought it for like 6 y ago.

A week ago my original charger was stolen in my dorm and ive been using Toshiba charger. (My laptop is like a wh*re u know, it can be charged with toshiba acer and asus).

I realized that after the changing, my internet became very slow. Even the download speed couldnt even reach 100 kbps when others could reach 5 mbps on the same network.

Ive been trying to change the dns, disabling anti virus, scanning with anti malware and anti virus, stopping programs, system restore. Im a newbie here sir so i wonder does it actually affects internet speed? using other charger..

Thanks in advance

Chargers are not the first thing that come to mind when you get a slow internet.

If any of the following three malware removal programs were not tried, give them a whirl. They are good, safe, and widely used on Security forums:

AdwCleaner:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Cleaning" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

MalwareBytes:
http://filehippo.com/download_malwa...
(green Download button top right - not anything else on the page)
Install and Run the program but before doing its Scan go to "Settings > Detection and Protection" and put a checkmark in "Scan for rootkits". Quarantine anything it finds.

If any of them find anything please copy/paste the logs on here so that we have an idea what is going on.

If none of them find anything we can pursue other ideas.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
