Hp pavilions come with lots of bloated softwares that run at startup.This makes d system start slowly but u can tweak it 2 be as fast as u want by disabling some things 4rm d startup menu and by using some powerful speed and performance enhancing softwares.

@Seun,na lie u talk o.4 vista, minimum reqmnt is 1Gb ram and 4 xp 256 ram.

@Ex inferins,these so called INFERIOR

dv6000 laptops and SUPERIOR dv5000 laptops were manufactured

in american owned & run factories in china under d same strict american supervision and standardization.My lappy is a dv6000 made in china and its faster than USAIN BOLT.

So,guy talk something else.

Why are HP Pavillions or any other laptops slow?

Windows Vista and not enough RAM, of course.

If you're running Vista, you need 4gb. Windows XP: 1gb.

Almost all modern laptops are made in Asia, including the ones that are sold in the USA.

If technicians' offices are full of HP laptops, it's because lots of people use them.

The same reason why most technician's offices are full of Windows PCs and not macs.

60% of the Hps that come these shores are inferior chinese made boxes. the tablet pcs heat up inexplicably, the casings are cheap misaligned plastics and the buttons and keys feel rubbery and cheap too. but then, most people cant tell.

look around in any technician's repair shop and you will see mounds of comatose Hps and Acers.

i should know; my friends import a lot of them.

Very interesting about HP bloat!

I bought my barebone NO-OS installed HP clone (no HDD, No Floppy disk, No CDRW drive). That's why my HP clone tower never SLOW DOWN at all!!! I have my own OS cd installing by myself plus disassembled all HDD, Floppy disk, CDRW drive from old tower case to new one assembled them!

My HP clone sys runs fine!

there is something known as HP bloat - google it

HP laptops are supposedly notorious for having all sort of superfluous software running all the time especially at start up and it makes booting up very slow

i had an HP pavilion dv9000 series which I replaced within a year of buying. Got a Toshiba instead. the HP would take 6-7 minutes just to boot up - it was extremely too slow

HP laptop has a lot of effizy but that's all i can say for it

Pennystuck, you also have to take consideration that caused your system performance SLOW as follow below:

[list]

[li]You might have maxed out internet cache causing internet slow loading. . .[/li]

[li]You might have too much music/picture files from download maxed out your hard disk drive[/li]

[li]You might have virus infected from clicking strange link(s) via email or download file or flash USB or CD. . .[/li]

[li]You might have not update newer patch of anti-virus/anti-malware/anti-spyware as well as Windows updates to be scanned automatically to protect from hackers and viruses.[/li]

[li]You might not use "Disk Cleanup" from Windows system tools that is found at "/Start button/All Program/Accessories/System Tools" or obtain free download either "REGCURE" or "CCLEANER", the Registry Cleaner software to clean up unused/unnecessary files and missing/corrupted registry files.[/li]

[li][/li]

[/list]

By the way I usually use my McAfee® Internet Security Suite with SiteAdvisor™  software that has its own powerful McAfee QuickClean to maintain my computer instead of Windows Disk Cleanup or REGCURE or CCLEANER I mentioned above. I am more than 10 years loyal paid-subscription member of McAfee. LOVE IT!

McAfee® Internet Security Suite with SiteAdvisor™  is all-in-one package along with a proactive 10-in-1 always-updating security bundle that protects what I value, my identity and my computer from viruses, spyware, email and IM scams, hackers and online predators, and provides automated backup for important files. Surf the web, shop, bank, email, instant message, and download files with confidence. McAfee SiteAdvisor and parental controls help me and my family members avoid unsafe websites. With McAfee’s security service continuously and automatically delivers the most up-to-date features, enhancements and threat data. Also, automated PC tune-ups remove unnecessary files for peak PC performance.

I don't give a damn hearing about other people on NL as well as other forum, who hate/complain McAfee or Norton software. That means they don't bother to read the manual/instruction how to use it as their own responsibility or don't feel this does not benefit for them.

So far I never gotten virus attacks on my system for a long time as long as i keep my computer performance running smoothly via McAfee® Internet Security Suite with SiteAdvisor™  software as my monthly or weekly maintenance depend on how much I use my computer daily basis.

Pennystuck, well you have to take into consideration a lot of things.

What type of processor do you have? the Intel processors are a lot better as a matter of fact, i don't buy AMDs because Intels have a fan in it which cools down the processors and AMD just gets hot which affects the functionality as the computer ages.

Also, what tye of Hard drive do you have? and have you almost maxed it out with information. you can go to the help section of your computer to see how much space has been used up and what is left.

So, it is no so much of the brand, but the speed, and processor.

hope this help!
