slow internet loading, slow youtube response: Dell 5558

Q: slow internet loading, slow youtube response: Dell 5558

Hello, I have a Dell 5558 Inspiron. the internet is very slow to load. My wife has a macbook pro that runs circles around my PC for web browsing. I have tried various tricks to minimize startup functions and background apps. is this a hardware issue that can be upgraded? would upgrading the GPU, upgrading to SSD, or adding more RAM help?

Preferred Solution: slow internet loading, slow youtube response: Dell 5558

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello Techspot!!!!

I have had my laptop for nearly 3 years but I wouldn't deem it to be a poor performance laptop. Recently I have been getting slow internet, poor keyboard response and slow scrolling, and it is very frustrating!!! I share the BT 3 homehub with good connection speed which was checked and found fine! My housemates laptop has started having the same problem as mine and I really want to fix this issue. The internet, keyboard and scrolling speeds vary everyday but overall are slow performers. I have looked through some of the threads and have seen people posting long threads of code etc :/ Is there anyone out there who has the time and patience to help me fix this problem? It would be most appreciated!!!

Many Thanks

Dan

Is this a rather new ISP for you and/or are the PCs newish or older ones?

Hi- I had great results here before on my desktop and now I need help with my laptop.

I'm running Vista home 32 bit and Firefox. I was reviewing Leo Laporte's Tech Guy site from his weekend shows and noticed he suggested to install Microsoft Security Essentials and run the MRT. I have been experaincing slow starts and almost nothing when starting firefox. If I clicked on a bookmark- the tab would just spin and not load anything for about 2-3 minutes. So I removed Threat Fire and installed the Mircosodt product than ran a scan. It took a few hours and the MRT found 2 infected files (both trojens) and a bunch of other files that weren't infected. I think something is wrong now so I'm looking for some help. below is the hijack this log and the mrt log.

Actually, I have 2 questions.

1. I am looking for information on bios settings for the Soyo P4-X400Ultra motherboard. The information can come in the form of an email or the web address of a place that tells me about bios settings for my board. I am not that experienced with the bios settings and the manual does not elibrate on which settings are best. What I would like to know is what are the best settings for my system (shown below)?

2. My second question is actually a problem that I can't seem to figure out. My system has been running well since I built it in Sept. but I have started to notice that applications are taking longer to load. I am not sure if this has been a problem from the beginning since I upgraded from a 800 Mhz and the new system being so much faster just never noticed. I can hit the shortcut to begin an application and it will begin by coming up in chunks...meaning that it loads pieces of the application over several seconds. For instance, the background shows up, then the menu, then the scroll bar, etc.

I have tried defragging, scan disk, Norton SpeedDisk all in an effort to make the HD access faster. One thing that I did notice however is that the S.M.A.R.T. parameter will not stay enabled in the bios. I can set it and when I reboot, it will revert back to disabled. Not sure if this has anything to do with the problem or not.

I would appreciate any and all responses.

We just bought this new laptop less than a week ago and we've been having issues with internet connectivity ever since.  The internet will randomly slow down even when the connection is shown to be full or almost full. When we have these spells it can take 45-90 seconds for a very simple webpage to load. These spells generally last from 2 minutes to an hour or so, although we had a problem for most of the day yesterday. We have Webroot antivirus, so I don't think it's a virus. We assumed it was our internet and contacted the provider who came out and replaced the router. We're still having problems with occational very slow page loading. We have Windows 8 and the computer is a Dell Inspiron 15 3521. We generally prefer Firefox. I went to the Dell website to see if any drivers needed updating, but it's not showing anything relevent. Any ideas would be very much appreciated!

A:Brand New Dell Laptop with internet loading slow even with full bars

Hi soozabelle, The internet will randomly slow down even when the connection is shown to be full or almost full. "Randomly".... caught my attention.I am assuming you are connected by wireless. How do you have your network set up? Modem to router and connected to router wireless?Have you ever had any other computers set up via wireless before? If not, there is a strong possibility that your router is not secured and someone may be piggybacking on your connection which can, and will, slow your connection down drastically when someone "randomly" decides to take advantage of your unsecured connection. Kinda like turning on more than one faucet in your home and you lose water pressure throughout the house.That is the first thing I would look into. Check that and let us know.If that is not the problem, other members may have some advice as well, so please stay tuned! ;)Donna

Hi. How are you? I am coming here because I'm going to attempt one more time. And then I'm going to call it a lost cause.I have aDell Latitude computer running windows 7. I have Google Chrome as my default browser. It is the easiest to get around in for me, and has tools for all of these popups that are in exitance. I have a question that I doubt has any real good answers, or any answer that is going to help, but I will go ahead and waiste these next few minutes just to see what happens. I LOVE YouTube. But YouTube I think is at the end of its time with me. I now have moved to a place that has a slightly slower speed and It is using Windstream. I now have PROFOUND problems browsing youtube because it is PROFOUNDLY SLOW.
 
REALLL slow. I have a question. Does anybody know of something in existance that would make it faster? I've checked my computer for bugs. NONE to be found. Cleaned it up. I've got ReadyBoost Activated, and I'm using chrome. Any suggestions or tools that would allow me to browse Youtube, and do all of the functions/features involved in YouTube like the PlayList Abilities such as AutoPlay and Auto-Repeat? ANYTHING? Oh, I Defragmented it too. And deleted other programs that I wanted to delete. Still profoundly slow. Internet Explorer isn't happening. BAAAAAD IDEA. Tried it. We're talking about Taking the definition of Profoundly slow to new and dangerous levels. Thank you very much. Sorry for waisting your time, and God Bless.

Hi.
I have installed Windows 8 professional. With internet browsers (I mainly use Chrome, but I tried IE too) and metro apps I experience this issue, which is that after watching a couple of youtube clips other youtube clips that I would like to watch takes forever to load. In order to fix this issue I need to reopen browser and I am fine for a couple (3-4) clips.
I am sure that this is not my routers or ISP's fault since everything is just fine with my brothers computer.
Maybe you have any ideas on how to fix this issue? It is very annoying and I have googled endlessly and nothing helped.

I recently cleaned up my "Start Up" items (this may or may not be associated with the problem I am having - may be coincidental). No viruses, Firewall at Medium security, SpySweeper in operation. 512MB RAM. XP Pro. Working on Cable Modem.

Pages are either VERY slow to load, or will not load at all. Often I must Refresh to get a desired page to show up at all. Many pages will not load at all. "We're sorry but the internet contant you selected is not currently available" message is common.

AOL loads, however slowly. IE is also slow loading the "home page". Going from either home p[age to through a link is a tedious process (including even bringing this form up).

Any ideas as to what the issue might be?

A:Slow Internet Response

First, have you tried powercycling your equipment (like your modem and your router)? Basically you would want to turn both off (if you have a router) and then turn back on your modem first (allowing it to remain on for about a minute) and then turning power back on to the router. Many times speed issues can be correctly by this simple process.

Also, if you have only been using IE then you might want to try clearing cookies/cache/etc if you haven't already. Go to your Tools menu at the top of your screen and go to Internet Options. Depending on the version of IE you have you could see different things like the option to "Delete All" or you might see separate buttons for "Delete Cookies" and "Delete Files". Either way it is a good idea to clear both of these up.

You could try downloading a different internet browser like Mozilla Firefox from getfirefox.com just to see if it's something with the program or not also.

Also, I would run some speed tests to see the speeds you are getting. Especially it might be a good idea to run a speed test while your firewall is on and to run one after you have disabled your firewall. Speed tests are available at:
speedtest.net
speakeasy.net/speedtest

My internet access (both Firefox & IE) suddenly got very slow on my Win7 computer. I held out for a couple of days hoping it was temporary. I thought it might be an msn problem because I 1st noticed it in hotmail & about the same time my Windows phone failed numerous times to download an app. I seem to remember once accessing an site that had a list of current/active msn problems; sometimes only in certain areas. Or was that Verizon?

Today I called Verizon & spent 1 1/2 hours with a tech who seemed to know even less than me (if that's possible). I became afraid that following her directions would make things even worse, so I discontinued the conversation.

Accessing hotmail.com just now gave . . .

You could test your phone line. Grab a phone and plug it into the phone jack you use for your DSL modem. Press any number to get rid of the beeeeeep so all you should hear is silence. If there are any sounds coming down the line other than almost perfect silence then you should have your line checked out.

Hi,
Thank you for writing to us!
We would suggest you to re-install the drivers rather than updating it which would be be more effective.Also check if the same happens in BIOS and also " Safe mode"
We would also suggest you to run diagnostics.
Kindly private message the service tag and email address.

I noticed that in IE 11 on Windows 8.1 that there was this slightly perceived typing lag when entering text in fields displayed in the browser. This lag would not be present in Chrome, Opera, and others... so that's what would make it noticeable. When you type fast, it is most noticeable, but not so bad as to obstruct typing or create errors.

However, now in Windows 10, the lag has increased. Painfully so. I find that with my typing rate, the keyboard input cannot "keep up" and I lose letters! I'd have to go back and correct works due to missing letters. I've resorted to keeping Textpad open and typing all my text there, then copy/paste into the browser fields. The different is very noticeable.

I've searched around and found a few scattered tips about dealing with this, but nothing seems to help. I have to believe there's a setting SOMEWHERE that is responsible. Or... is this a byproduct of Microsoft key logging?

Hello,

I am experiencing a very frustrating scenario on my machine.
It started out of the blue. I have dial up still and I hardly ever
get on the internet. maybe only an occasional Google search.
It started during a period in which I had not been on the web for at least a week.
*When I click on a folder it stalls and then opens after a few seconds.
*Videos played off my hard drive stutter.
*Startup takes longer than usual.
*Basically, any task I try to perform is stalled.

I have performed the following actions:
ScanDisk
Checkdisk
Defrag
Ran Malwarebytes in Safe Mode and Standard
Ran Super Anti Spyware in Safe Mode and Standard
Ran Hijack This
I have checked programs running on Startup and cleaned that out.
I have 90GB of free space and 1GB of Ram.

I also have done in depth research into the DMA/PIO
possibility.
I am showing UDMA 5 for my HDD, and DMA for my CD/DVD.
It never displayed PIO at all anywhere. However, the symptoms
associated with a HDD reverting back to PIO match what I am seeing.
Is it possible to be in PIO mode, even though it displays DMA?

I am at a loss for what it could be...Please help...Any help would be appreciated greatly.

A:Slow response time. Videos stutter. Slow startup.

This may be irrelevant but when was the last time you changed the MB battery? I have had a lot of machine and still do, when the battery is dying funny things can happen. I sure looks like you have covered all the other bases!!

Great that I found this site!

Since two days ago I have had a strange trouble with IE 6.0: Entering data to form fields (including this message box) and scrolling pages up/down is extremely slow. Characters show approx. 2 - 5 seconds after when you have actually pressed the keys. Scrolling webpages especially ones having pictures (such as Ebay search results) is paintaking.

Typing web address on top of the screen and the connection work just fine. I have Windows ME and AntiVir 9 + Zonealarm running. I run IE's internal "repair process" but did not help here at all.

Please let me know what should I do to get rid of this trouble.

My computer just recently has been running painfully slow. Boot up takes about 10 minutes while log in time has increased a little also. When I attempt to open my programs now, some wont open until 15 minutes later, after I already gave up on them; some don't even open at all. Internet explorer works but takes about a minute to load the homepage and loading times vary. Sometimes it loads quick, sometimes it seems like it has stopped responding. Sometimes explorer completely freezes and I get the "checking for solutions" message. I am really getting frustrated because I have ran all of my anti virus anti spyware, malware etc. I have pccillin antivirus, malwarebytes, ad-aware, and spybot search and destroy, all of which say my comp has 0 problems. Itunes seems to be extremely bad in loading because i can try for 30 min and not get it to load even after uninstalling and reinstalling. I also have cleaned out the comp using ccleaner and have defragmented. I am running low on options and don't know whats wrong this time. Please help!

I kept my PC case clean, didn't try to install programs my PC couldn't handle, didn't go to any sites that knew were bad with viruses and such also had Malwareytes/spybot/avast/hijackthis to use, didnt install any toolbars, and tried not to have many programs open at the same time. I basically kept my PC simple with use.

Anyways around June I noticed some odd slowdowns

Extracting 700mb files from Winrar would take around 8mins

Playing Youtube, WMP, of VLC videos would be slow and choppy.

Transferring files from one PC to another over a crossover cable would take much longer. 4gigs of files would take about 20mins or so.

I have had norton installed and ran a scan, no problems detected. Now i uninstalled it. Please let me know what to do now.

Erm hi. Last night my PC was absolutely fine, and today it seems to be completely broken.

I turned the computer on today and received a "malware detected" message from Avast antivirus. I tried to move to chest/delete and the message kept popping up. I looked up NewDot malware on the internet (which is what Avast was detecting) and it said that NewDot prevents access to the internet, which seemed about right as i was having to use my laptop to access the internet as the time, because the other computer wasn't working properly. It said that i could get rid of it easily my going to Add/remove programs and uninstalling it, which i did.

After this i restarted the computer and the loading time was exceptionally slow, i thought it had frozen, but it was just taking 5-10minutes to load. When it finally did load i tried to access the internet through a number of different browsers, but none of them would load. I tried to open some other applications too, and they wouldn't load either. I went to msconfig and disabled the majority of my startup items, and then restarted the computer. Once again the loading time was slow, and no applications would start. I then tried to do a defrag, but the program didn't work. Then i tried system restore, and the application didn't load, i came back to the computer 5-10minutes later and it had loaded, but it came up with an error that said something along the lines of "system restore is unable to protect your computer, please restar...

It says that deleting the .dll will result in a broken internet connection. IT also mentions that sometimes uninstalling it will still leave errors in winsock.
This seems to be what has happened to me, so i'm going to try the LSP fix utility available for download on that site. The problem is that this laptop has no floppy disk drive, and i don't have a UBS storage device available.

I was just wondering, if and when i do repair the LSP problems, could that be what is causing my system to run slowly? I hope so.

My ISP is Videotron (I live in Quebec), and I have a D-LINK DIR-615 Wireless N. My internet connection is just over 10 megabits per second, averaging a download speed of 1150 kilobytes per second, which remains unchanged, (multiple speed tests, downloads and torrents).

About a month ago, when watching videos on YouTube, they started streaming at extremely low speeds, making videos that used to finished streaming in seconds completely unwatchable.

I have restarted my router, modem, Anti-Virus (with firewall - Kaspersky Internet Security 2010) and computer several times and it didn't help. The only thing that did help was plugging my computer directly into the modem, which returned the speeds to normal.

However, I have 3 friends, all of which have Videotron, but not D-LINK routers, experiencing the same problem. Videotron does not throttle, and I have not changed computers, routers, modems, operating systems, virus protection software or internet browser since long before the problem began.

Please help, I feel like I have a dial-up connection.

1. Slower speed surfing the net
2. Slow to open up an Internet Window (about 8 seconds)
3. Can not browse internet at the same time that an anti virus program is turned on (to monitor). Has occured with Norton and Trend Micro.
4. Can no longer access I-Tunes store or Rhapsody store when I open the applications.
5. You Tube videos are stop and go instead of running fluidly.

All of this is new behavior for my laptop...

Any ideas on what may be happening or what I should try to do next? I downloaded hijackthis, so I have that software program on my computer.

If anyone is willing to help, I would greatly appreciate it! Please let me know if you need additional information.

Many thanks in advance!

Can not browse internet at the same time that an anti virus program is turned on (to monitor).It is best to do a virus scan when the computer is not in use otherwise.If you suspect that you are infected, I would recommend posting in our Am I Infected? forumhttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/

I've had my computer for about 3 years, a Dell Dimension 4700,Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 3. Lately it's been running a lot slower than it used to. I can't seem to figure out what's causing my computer to be slow. My fan inside my tower has been louder and my tower has been making louder noises. When opening "My Computer" it takes about 2 minute to load, and Microsoft Word freezes more often now.

Hi,

I recently bought a the 5558, roughly six or eight weeks ago; I have been very disappointed with the performance since day one. I do not use it often at the moment, and only for browsing and Office. 

I've tried all the 'tips' that I found through Google searches, plus Advanced Systemcare 8 to defrag and optimise, plus the Dell System Detect (No issues).
Programs often take a long time to load, if at all, especially Chrome. Downloads are painfully slow (e.g. 15 minutes for a 70kb .doc file) despite speedcheck showing a 4.9MBps rate. Chrome and Firefox both frequently stall and a popup offers me to 'kill' or 'wait' for the page. Also when opening file explorer, it can take fully 5 minutes to 'find' anything - even in near-empty folders. 
Any other ideas? Has anyone else had any similar issues?
The laptop did come preloaded with Windows 10 and I double checked the minimum requirements, there really shouldn't be any issues.

Thanks for any replies

Hi,
Thank you for writing to us!
This could be a hardware issue we would suggest to run complete diagnostics to check if there are any issues .
Kindly also private message the service tag of the system.
Thanks

Hello I have an internet problem

I am using an adapter for my desktop to connect to my 2wire router wirelessly. Internet was great for a few months but recently it just became slow. Torrent downloads were really fast but browsing and everything else were very slow. Other computers at home seemed to be working fine so I just re-installed windows 7 again. It was fast again for a couple of days but it became slow again. I tested the wireless adapter to my other laptop and worked perfectly fine however it didn't on my desktop. So I thought it was just a virus and reinstalled windows 7 today again. Now internet is still slow even accessing the wireless router control page is slow. Right now i am clueless on what to do know and It would be awesome if someone helped me.

Internet is very slow to load. Also, the toolbar items that load up open the bottom of the page are not there anymore--only the McAffee is showing up. Did not change any settings.
I have run Spy bot and Adaware. Fixed whatever has popped up, but it is still a bit slow. Is there something missed showing up in my log? Any other recommendations?
