Help my laptop is slow

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

i have a laptop that is old and when i start it up, CPU usage is always 100%. i reset the entire computer and still is slow. it used to be smoother when i bought it.

there is nothing on it except for amd software and the visual C++ software. what should i do to make it faster? Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5130

If that's the case, I *strongly* concur.  Time to put that out to pasture.   And here I thought I was pretty ghetto for using a (heavily upgraded w/SSD, new processor/wireless/WWAN) 9-year-old laptop as my "main" desktop/laptop.

I just looked at that 1.5 GHz single core and estimated that would be about the reasonable limit xD 

 

For comparison, a 2 GHz dual core (AMD) would have been a good CPU 10 years ago... so...

I'm not surprised.  By my guess it would be usable for basic things with XP but that's about it... and that's when it was new
