My Computer is running slow

July 23, 2012 at 13:11:06
Specs: Windows 7
I am running a 32 bit Windows 7 operating system. When I first got my computer it was a 64 bit Windows 7 operating system. I then upgraded to Windows 8, and ended up deleting the hard drive when trying to re-install Windows 7. I went to a computer re-builder and he rebuilt it for me. I now am running the 32 bit operating system. I can use my computer for about 30 minutes and then it will start to lag and will not stop until I shut it down and wait an hour or, sometimes even longer. I checked my computer's performance and I saw that all of the programs running were 100% EXCEPT for Perfmon.exe

Have you checked if it happens in safe mode (keep pressing F8 after the logo for the manufacturer goes and there is a little blinking cursor on the top left corner).

I am a hardware guy not a software guy but i try to help.

what did the person that installed the OS for you have to say about your problem?

If they rebuilt the system as you said or just reinstalled Windows 7 for you and you paid them for this service, then according to Microsoft they are responsible for supporting your system. Take it back and have them do it right. While you are at it, if you did not ask them to make it into a 32bit, they should reinstall it as a 64bit. Just make sure that you make a back up yourself all of your files before you go to be sure of not loosing anything.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

What did the computer re-builder re-build for you ? As I understand your problem is with software, not hardware. Now do you have 32-bit Win 7 or another OS ?

Make sure that all of your hardware remains the same. Nothing changed inside for a degradation. Can you look into the case and list all the hardware here ?

By the way, not all of the programs can run 100% at the same time.

He also wrote:"I now am running the 32 bit operating system. 4th and 5th lines." So I might have been confused and asked about what OS. I did not think this might pose a problem. I am sorry.

here are some reasons why computer is slow 1) maybe it is old or that the hardware/specs could not run the present softwares and applications, 2) that your computer runs many programs and applications at the same time; for the solutions, if you can do an upgrade of your memory then try to upgrade it to increase its capacity, number 2, try to close applications and programs that you don't need to save some memory for your computer and dedicate it to some other programs. you can do this by selecting the start-up programs that should run or in the task manager, close the applications or services.
