A big decrease increase internet speed,

Q: A big decrease increase internet speed,

Sorry for the bad explication.

My issue is that when I am upstairs windows 7 says there is 5/5 bars as connection (same as downstairs)
But when I am upstairs I am lucky to reach 2mb/s
Downstairs I get 10mb/s(normal for me)

Could this be a driver issue?

Preferred Solution: A big decrease increase internet speed,

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: A big decrease increase internet speed,

Could be a driver issue, a signal noise issue (even if you are getting 5 bars) or could be your upstairs PC is using the G band when the downstairs is using N band.

Hello behrouz, and welcome!
Your request seems very unusual indeed , people usually complain about slow speeds!
I would suggest that you contact your ISP [Internet Service Provider] and ask them if you can change 'plans' to a lower speed.

This is a big question for me. I created a slipstreamed Windows XP SP3 by using nLite. My orginal cd is a Windows XP without any SP integrated on it. Since installing this new slipstreamed CD. I think total performance is decreased. Specially internet connection speed. I found many forum in the web that tells SP3 have slow downed their internet speed. The Dial-up and xDSL are more affected.

Is this true or not?

Any solution for it?

That was example set partition 80 for C; and created D: drive 40 GB from the original one drive. I installed programs in before that is now filled up almost all of drive C: 80GB partitioned. If I move (some) of the preinstalled program to D: drive will the moved programs stop working? Some program demand to be installed to only C: or it will not install at all.

Alright, so this is about a sound problem, but my tests make me think it's something to do with Windows 7. Here's the issue :

I have a SteelSeries Merc Stealth keyboard with buttons for increasing and decreasing volume. The decreasing volume works, but the increasing does not. So, if I want to increase the volume (in a game, for instance), I would have to alt-tab. I thought this was because my keyboard was somehow broken and that particular button didn't work anymore.

However, I just received a brand new pair of Corsair HS1 headphone. On the cable of the headphones are buttons to increase and decrease the volume of Windows. So, as you may guess, the decreasing button works, but not the increasing one.

Since the probably of having two defective items, one being new for the exact same problem being so slim, my guess is that something in Windows 7 is off. So, can anyone help?

Here's my specs :
Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
Intel i7 Quad Core @2.67GHz
Corsair TX750 750W PSU
Corsair Vengeance 3x4BG CL9-9-9
Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870
Corsair Vengeance 12GB 3x4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Triple Channel
Windows 7 64-bits w/ Service pack 1

A:Can decrease volume, but can't increase

Just to specify as a proof the buttons work, when I use a program that enable Global keys like Winamp, the volume of that program will increase or decrease. It's the Windows volume that doesn't increase.

As the title states. I'm planning on trading my dad laptops. I do audio production and gaming. I have an i3 and the cpu is clocked at 2.4 ghz and he has an i5 clocked at 1.8. How much of a difference will this impact performance? For better or worse?

Im curious because I had a desktop a while back and it had a Core 2 Duo @ 2.8 and I went to this i3 @2.4 laptop and the cpu sucks in comparison to the desktop...I was originally thinking the i3 would be a increase since it was newer architecture.

I would still think on the graphics side its definitely an upgrade because the i3 uses Intel HD Graphics and it sucks...it doesnt even use opengl. The other uses a Nvidia GeForce GT 740M.

A:(2.4 Ghz i3) to (1.8 Ghz i5) Increase or decrease in perf?

The difference between the desktop and laptop is multifaceted. Desktop probably had faster hard drive, dedicated video, and optimized for performance versus laptop optimized for battery life.

And the core i3/5/7 each do graphics onboard. The slower the cpu, the more impact the graphics will have on overall performance. Core i3 are budget machines, for basic tasks. They are not really suitable for gaming or video and music production. The core i5 will suit better in these areas.

Dear Friends;

I connect with internet through my wireless phoneset which speed is 230.4kbps. If I want to increase the speed of internet, should I change the internet service provider or the RAM of PC has also influence on internet speed.

Sorry if I could not explain well and sorry for my lack of basic knowledge.

A:How can I increase the internet speed?

ram won't assist in internet speed. if you are going through a phoneset modem, you are most likely limited by that technology. You can go to http://www.dslreports.com/stest and see how you rank compared to similar technologies, but I would suspect you are about at the limit.

However, I've been wrong before, so if you show up on the bottom edge of a similar connection type, the next step would be contacting and/or switching isp's.

Hi, I just bought a new computer with Windows 7 and a 1 TB hard drive. Windows 7 recycle bin came configured with about 40 GB of space allotted to it. I want to decrease its capacity (down to about 10 GB) in order to increase the available space on my hard drive. However, when I decreased the recycle bin size, there was no apparent change when I left double-clicked on My Computer and it showed the amount of free space on my c: drive.

I just got a Lenovo Z460 running on windows7.
By default, the harddisk is split into c:\ and d:\

I want to decrease the disk space of c drive and then use this additional space to increase the disk space of d drive (the logical drive)

To decrease the disk space in c drive, I go to computer management/storage/disk management and then at the c drive, I right click the mouse and then choose "shrink volumn". I successfully shrinked c drive and now I got an unallocated space but how do I allocate this new space to d drive. The "extend volume" in d drive is greyed.


A:Solved: how to decrease and increase disk space

The windows partitioning tool is somewhat limited in that it will only extend a partition to the right, so you're going to need an additional tool.

I personally use a Live Linux CD with an included partitioning program, usually GPartEd. If you're not familiar or comfortable with Linux then someone else will have to recommend another tool.

Keep in mind, whatever tool you use will take quite awhile to extend that partition because it not only extends the partition but also moves all the data to the beginning of the newly extended partition. It looks like you've got about 10-11 Gigs of data on there so it can take possibly half an hour or more.

A somewhat convoluted solution possible with the windows partition tool would be:

1) Create a new partition with the unallocated space. Let's call it F drive.

2) Copy/paste all the data from the D drive into the new F drive.

3) Delete the D drive.

4) Extend the F drive to include the now unallocated space on the right of the new F drive.

5) Rename F drive to whatever you want.

Good day!  I am an IT Systems Support Engineer and give support mostly to business clients, but also to some residential clients.  Due to the recent growth of Windows 10 upgrades, I'm curious if anyone has noticed an increase or decrease with questions about Windows 10.  I throw in decreasing, since I've been asked quite a bit about Win 10.
I am new to posting on this site, but I've used this site before, when I came across something that I hadn't seen before.  I really enjoy this site and when it helped me with an issue, I always put this site as a resource.  
Thanks for reading and I am eager to know anybody's thoughts about the topic title.

I haven't installed Win 10 yet...but I have seen the introduction of every Windows system since Win 95 and it occurs to me that what is currently reflected is the same amount (or even more) of puzzlement, rhetoric, and uncertainty...that comes with every version of Windows...until the first SP is issued.  Once that occurs, users seem to settle down and have become more familiar with what are imagined problematical situaitons, as opposed to real problems where they need/want assistance with specific types of system situations.

I'm using Mobidata Edge Modem. My internet connection is very slow. I found some speed increasing software, using them but don't get useful result. Have any solution how can I increase my speed, have any technique?

A:Have any tips to increase internet speed

the best way to have faster internet that i have found is:

1: use a computer that is cheap to replace. (older is usually the case here)
2: use a wired connection
3: Firefox with add blocker (most adds are images, get ride of them get ride of about 1/2 of the page download)
4: set Firefox to delete all cookies and temp files when closed. (not with addons, just with the normal settings)
5: do not use any software that effects any programs dealing with the internet.
*no anti-virues, firewalls,un-needed addons, web sharing. ~ this is why you want to use a cheap fix computer*

if you do this:
you want to keep any thing you want to keep on removable memory (and backed up).
virus removal software on the computer but not constantly running. (manually scan)
and an operating system disk for the computer to reinstall if needed.
i have an old 98 computer that i use like this... when i use it i never seem to have any problems... but when others use it i always seem to have to scan/reinstall.

BTW i have tried a lot of different speed increasing software but i have not found any that works at all.
also some changes to your network card settings might help.

Can someone tell me how can I make it stay with 900 KB/s?

A:How can I increase my Internet Downloading Speed

If your connection is 100Mbps then you should get downloads of 12MB/s. However, I think you are mistaking LAN connection speed with the speed you are getting from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). You can only increase Internet download by switching to a better Internet plan from your ISP.

LAN speed is the speed you can get while communicating with other local PCs that are wired to the router.

Source: petri.co.il - Increase Broadband Connection Speed in Windows XP/2003 (January 2009 article)


This tip is designed for increased BROADBAND speed in Windows XP while using standard Network Interface cards (NIC) that are connected to ADSL modems, or when using any directly-connected USB ADSL modem.

To speed up the Internet connection speed we need to configure a special buffer in the computer's memory in order to enable it to better deal with interrupts made from the NIC or the USB modem.

This tip is only recommended if you have 256MB RAM or higher.

Step #1 - Identify the IRQ used by the NIC/USB modem

1. Open the System Information tool by running MSINFO32.EXE from the Run command.

2. Expand System Summary > Hardware Resources > IRQs.

3. Look for the listing made for your NIC (in my case - a Intel? PRO/100+ Management Adapter). Note the IRQ next to the specified line (in my case - IRQ21).

In case of USB modems you will first need to find the right USB device used by your modem. Follow these steps:

1. Open the Device Manager tool by running DEVMGMT.MSC from the Run command (or by right-clicking My Computer > Hardware tab > Device Manager button).

2. Scroll down to Universal Serial Bus controllers and expand it.

3. Right-click the USB Root Hub and select Properties. Note that you might need to do so for all listed USB Root hubs (if there are more than one) in order to find the right one.

Hello, all.

I have here an Acer Aspire T180, and would like to decrease the RAM speed. I think I have some bad RAM, since I keep getting errors in Windows, such as CRC checks, BSODs, etc. This is definitely caused by the RAM.

Memtest86+ and Windows Memory Diagnostic Test both show no errors in the RAM. They used to, but I had a technician clean the faulty RAM stick, and now it brings up no errors.

I believe this is because MemTest86+ is testing it at a slower speed than Windows uses. I would like to decrease the maximum speed at which the RAM is used, to avoid corruption etc.

I can provide any necessary details if asked for them.

I need this done by tonight, realistically, so any help is greatly appreciated.

Check your BIOS and see if you can change your RAM speed there.

A:how to decrease download speed

Hi. It depends on how he is downloading and what.

If he is downloading using torrents, then in the client will be settings to adjust upload and download speeds. If he is sending data as fast as your connections allows (uploading), that is most likely to inhibit speeds on other pcs. To download, upload packets are also used. If you can't send upload packets, you can't download.

If he is downloading from a web browser from normal websites, then you'd need something like Getright installed to take care of the downloads. It "grabs" the downloads instead of letting the browser download. In Getright, you can adjust total download speed.

If you need any more info, please let us know.

My computer was taken away and rebuilt because of a broken HDD and during this time my internet speed was normal. I knew this because I set up my laptop to the internet cable and the speed was fine. The problem occured when my computer was set back up and since my internet speed has slowed right down to 200kbps and I pay for 2mb broadband. I have no idea why this has happened and could anyone suggest a reason why, any feedback would be greatly recieved.

This problems been annoying me now for a while and I've been unable to fix it. I hope someone hear can help.

We've recently had a new telephone line and signed up to Demon 8mb business package. We were told at the time that we could only receive 5.5mb on the line, fair enough.

Now for the problem.

Since the installation we've been receiving a gradual daily decrease in the broadband speed. Every day we come to work and the speed is upward of 6mb. By lunch time this has dropped to 3mb and by late afternoon can be as low as 800kb. The following morning, back up to 6mb.

Resetting/rebooting/disconnecting the modem/router (combined unit) has no effect on the speed.
I've contacted Demon during the late afternoon, they've tested the line and said it is running at over 8mb and there is nothing wrong with it.
The employees have very strict guidlines in place and I know for a fact that they are very light internet users. No streaming of any sort, no d/l files etc.

This is not an intermittent fault but a reoccurring problem which leads me to believe that there is not a problem with the telephone line but a problem with the server configuration.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

The server is
Windows 2000 Server (fully updated)
