  1. sy baru format laptop cq50-104au pakai wind xp sata pack 2 tp laptop jadi slow. mengapa?

  2. salam syed,

    1. Pertama pastikan semua driver dah dinstall terutama sekali Graphic dan chipset. (kalau belum install kna install dulu sebab tanpa graphic performance mmg teramt perlahan)

    2. mungkin sewaktu install windows ada file yg tertinggal (jarang2 hal ini blh terjadi)jadi biasanya format kembali.

    3. Cuba cek suhu laptop - gunakan SPEED FAN program. pastikan suhu maximum paling tinggi pun 70, biasanya untuk laptop suhu yang ok 63C. Elakkan guna laptop tanpa fan atau pelapik agar ada ruang.

    4. Buka device manager dan check pada performance, jika tiada apa2 program dibuka cpu sepatutnya dibawah 4% dan PF usage(RAM) 200-600mb. Untuk perkara ini kalaulah penggunaan tinggi biasanya ia kerana software ataupun background running program.

  3. ok... terima kaseh...

    nak mintak tolong lagi boleh...
