  1. I cant even run fucking minecraft, a 20 dollar block game….FUCKING 20 DOLLAR BLOCK GAME. Outrageous, its suppost to be a gaming laptop and someone fucked with my settings and dropped it a bunch…GOD DAMMIT!

  2. @David hey there friend , thanks for the video and all the advice you gave . there is one thing i noticed . on the task manager it has a "SERVICE HOST and HOST PROCESS " that takes up a LOT of CPU usage . can any of these be stopped or at best , maybe limited , to there usage on the CPU ?

  3. get a better perfomance its very cheap 350 dollars machine you can get really fast performance and make sure you have an ssd the ssd is making your computer faster 100%

  4. Thank you so much there is a great increase in speed performance.I really acknowledge the fact that your findings helped.BUT ever since using your settings my internet connection flactuates one time its okay, one time its not, another time its completely down…Please help me with this IT WOULD BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.Thanks

  5. also somthing that can speed up laptops is if you always have the power adapter plugged in remove the battery altho if you are doing somthing important such as working on a report for school or somthing and try this DO NOT remove the power cord when the batterys not in it will and not might will shut down the computer instantly

  6. im not much of a techy but it kinda helps disabling all the stuff in the system properties especially if you have a computer like mine with HUGE video games such as world of tanks roblox minecraft world of warcraft diablo 3 etc it helps it seems to me but this might have a negative effect on you

  7. You speed through your tutorial as if we all know what you're talking about. If you listen to yourself from a laymans position you will find that well over half of what you say and the speed at which you are going through it, makes it difficult if not impossible to follow. For example at :41sec you click onto a toolbar icon then go through your instructions as if we know what we're doing. If I knew what I was doing, I wouldn't be watching this tutorial. I don't know what I'm doing and need time to figure it all out. Even stopping and pausing your tutorial after each instruction, I can't find what you say should be so obvious. I cannot even find this particular icon you show on my computer and if I did or could, I don't know where to find it or "the task manager", your tutorial goes downhill from there. I don't mean to say that this is your fault, it's not. It's totally my fault, but here, you're the teacher and you have a really really dumb student. . . . Oh yea, and old too!

  8. B-4 watching this video it use to take 2minutes for my pc turned on, now 30seconds, 45seconds w/backup hard drive connected. 5minutes to retrieve videos from my backup hard Dr. now only 20 seconds. Dave is good but…GiG'r

  9. If Task Manager "Disk" is at 100% IE will lagged. That's is the problem I'm experiencing. I did follow your advise in disabling some programs. Thanks for the tip about "Power Options". I changed it to high performance and I like the view much better. Before the view was to dim. Thanks
