Please don't edit your question to include the answer, answer your own question. Please read Can I answer my own question? – DavidPostill Conclusion: I accepted the answer of Jonas, because most probably high CPU load triggered the warning. I did not find any process which could cause this, but when I move the mouse I have about 10-30% CPU load on ...

Windows is a bit slow after resume because Superfetch reads data again from HDD to later speed up the execution of applications. Your Hitachi Travelstar 5K500 HDD is very slow and your system is 6 years old (Acer Aspire 7540), so don't expect too much fun with a new Operating system on such an old system with only a AMD Athlon II Dual-Core CPU and such a ...

ANSWER: So even though I was in High Performance power setting through Windows, one setting was still throttling my CPU. To fix this, I went to Windows power options. Clicked "Change Advanced power settings" Scrolled down and opened Processor Power Management > Maximum Processor State This value was set to 5% for some odd reason. I cranked it back up to ...

The report complains that you already had programs running which used CPU capacity. This means that the benchmark tool cannot fully outload your CPU because some space is already in-use and thus the test results might differ from what your real CPU might be able to do The warning message shows because they want to warn you that CPU-related results might be ...

When you copy data, the ideal case is having one sequential file. Instead, having a myriad of small files kills performance. A mechanical disk has to keep seeking for the right sector, and this is very time-consuming; an SSD is much faster, but still it suffers. If you check an SSD benchmark (I recommend Anandtech) you'll see that sequential read is often ...

As shown here in the Microsoft documentation. By default, Personal Folders (.pst) and offline Outlook Data File (.ost) files are in Unicode format in Microsoft Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013. The overall size of .pst and .ost files has a preconfigured limit of 50 GB. That is in 2010 and 2013. The default .pst and .ost file size limit in Outlook ...

I had the exact same problem!! I solved it by: Control Panel - Power Options - Change plan settings (on the right of the your power plan) - Change advanced power settings - scroll down and click on 'processor power management' - Maximum processor state - the 'plugged in' option was 0% while the 'on battery' was 100%, I simply put 100% in 'plugged in' (and ...

Memory Hard Faults have nothing to do with the 'brand' or 'quality' of the memory. It means that the software has requested an address and the page where it resides isn't still in main memory. Usually it has been swapped to virtual memory, (hard drive or SSD) and the OS will swap it back from virtual memory to physical memory. If you are getting massive ...

Good conventional speed tests are multi-threaded and create multiple connections to the speed test server. Thus maxing out your connection to its full potential. http://www.thinkbroadband.com/faq/sections/flash-speed-test.html#324 iPerf3 appears to only create two connections (using the default options), which may not be enough to max out your 152Mb ...

Something like this should work: Public Function speedtest() t = Now() For i = 1 To 200000 'c = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(ActiveSheet.Range("A1"), ActiveSheet.Range("B1")) c = (ActiveSheet.Range("A1") = ActiveSheet.Range("B1")) Next i t1 = Now() dt = Format(t1 - t, "ss") ms = MsgBox(dt & " seconds", vbOKOnly) End Function The ...

I'm guessing the .db files are much larger than the .mp4 and .mov files? There's a lot of overhead when creating a new file, so if you try to copy a folder with a lot of files with small size (e.g. the Windows folder), you will notice that the average speed is very slow compared to when you copy a single huge file. Also, when you copy the .mp4 and .mov ...

Those unstable ping times aren't your problem. MacBooks use 802.11 Power Save mode. With a typical ping interval of 1 second, the receiver keeps going to sleep between pings. If you had real traffic going on, the receiver wouldn't go to sleep in the middle of it, so you wouldn't have this latency. Keep looking for the source of the slowness. You haven't ...

Take a look at using SQUID or VARNISH, bot open source packages, in proxy mode for your site. Set policies to cache images for an extended period, such as 48 hours. You can also apply this caching policy to Style Sheets, JavaScript Files, fonts, etc... You will also likely want to set policy to cache only servers within your internet domain or specific ...

Your laptop has 4Gb integrated memory (called 'on board' on notebookcheck and 'internal memory' on the other site), that means it's soldered on to the motherboard and can't be replaced. On top of that you have one free slot which supports 1333MHz or 1600MHz SoDIMM up to 8GB. Something like a Kingston KVR16LS11/8 should work fine and will bring you up to ...

this guy might have a Killer Networking (previously Bigfoot networking) brand network card. Was going crazy trying to figure out why I had a massive memory leak and even did a completely clean install and immediately after installing I had a memory leak. Of course I installed my network drivers and video card drivers but that was it. I searched Google... ...

For me, the culprit was IPv6 resolution, it was timing out. (Bad DNS setting at my host provider, I guess.) I discovered this by doing ssh -v, which showed which step was hanging. The solution is to ssh with the -4 option: ssh -4 me@myserver.com

Beware that IPerf defaults to an "upload" test: The IPerf client (-c) sends TCP data to the IPerf server (-s). It looks like you were running the client on your LAN and connecting to an IPerf server hosted on the public Internet, so you were testing your new broadband connection's upload, not download, speed. To test its download speed, either reverse ...

The SSD is providing most of the performance benefit, hands down. As Ramhound mentioned, database performance is generally bound to memory and I/O performance. An SSD provides a quantum leap in performance benefit compared to a HDD in regards to random accesses (which is most likely your usage pattern). i5 vs. i7 wouldn't provide a performance benefit of ...

Since the S.M.A.R.T. data on the drive doesn't indicate any problem, you're likely dealing with either an application that's using the drive excessively, or an I/O subsystem bottleneck. Narrow it down to any offending process(es) Open Windows Task Manager Select the Processes tab Select View->Select Columns Enable the I/O Read Bytes and I/O Write Bytes ...

Note: This is too long for a 'Comment' so I posted it as an 'Answer' even though it's really just some suggestions. After giving this some more thought, doing a little research, and with the additional information you provided, here are a few things you might try. P.S.-I agree that this is probably not a hardware/AC adapter problem especially given the ...

After many trial & error attempts, I found out what the issue was: My Laptop (cannot confirm if all Lenovo Laptops have this behavior) will throttle the CPU to the lowest setting if no battery is plugged-in. I don't know what the fine Lenovo engineers have been thinking...

I'd like to emphasize the fact that VNC is simply a horrible comparison point. Between Linux systems, a properly configured xpra provides much, much better performance - mostly thanks to supporting H.264 based lossy compression. The only lossy compression supported by TeamViewer seems to be reducing the colour depth and some kind of interlaced updates ...

Your CPU is an Intel Atom running at 1.6 Ghz. Your computer is VASTLY underpowered compared to a modern development machine. For comparison, the passmark score for an Intel Atom 330 running at 1.60 GHz is 605. Compare this with an arbitrarily-chosen CPU, the Intel i7-4770. That scores 9872. That's more than sixteen times faster, and that CPU is far from ...

This might be caused by the selected Power Plan. The "Balanced" power plan recommended by Windows is not very clever and can affect the performance badly (50% in my case). So: check the Maximum Frequency in the Resource Monitor, like SteveW explained. If the Maximum Frequency is not 100% check the Power Plan (battery icon in your tray bar). Set the Power ...

For most office tasks, your boss is correct. For using a high resource program like Blender 3D, you need as much extra boost of performance as possible, and using 4 Gigs in four DIMM slots for 16 Gigs total, has dual channel operation twice (assuming the motherboard supports this), which adds a significant amount of available resource when needed. If you ...

this is a great question because my experience has been that memory gets down clocked to lower than the CPU for some reason even though its rated for the same speed as the processor - this has happened with Gskill and Kingston memory. If you need to purchase a higher rated ram - say 2100 to get it to run at 1600 then it is worth doing.

I have a similar problem when docked with my Windows 8.1 Lenovo T530. It is fine when not docked, and when docked, the screen flashes and suddenly it is sluggish and dwm.exe takes a ton of resources, etc. The only thing I have noticed is that the Graphics card goes into a "power saving mode" when not docked. Try updating your graphics card drivers (as ...

Yes, you can play high end game on a server. But you have to install a graphic card in to the PCI slot. And as for audio, you have to enable the Windows Audio services from "services.msc" console. And you might be aware that server doesn't have audio jack in it, so you'll have to use the audio jack from the monitor (given that you're using hdmi connectivity ...

You have a memory leak caused by a driver. Look at the high value of nonpaged kernel memory. In your case this is over 3.7 GB. You can use poolmon to see which driver is causing the high usage. Install the Windows WDK, run poolmon, sort it via P after pool type so that non paged is on top and via B after bytes to see the tag which uses most memory. Now ...
