This should help speed up your connection, although it will not help with your heat issue....

 

Open your device manager, hit the start button then copy and paste devmgmt.msc into the start search box hit enter.

Left click the + next to network adapters, right click and un-install your wireless driver and your ethernet driver, make sure and do not tick the box that says delete driver.

Then, click the View menu and select Show hidden devices
Then hit view again and select devices by connection.

Then scroll down right click and uninstall the drivers listed below,dont worry these will be reinstalled upon reboot by windows.

  • Ancillary Function Driver for Winsock
  • Net BT
  • Http
  • Net Io Legacy Support Driver
  • Tcp/ip Protical Driver
  • Tcp/ip Registry Compatibility
  • NSI proxy Service
  • ide channel
  • Nd Proxy
  • Security Driver
  • Security Processor Loader Driver
  • Windows Firewall Authorization Driver
Each of these files will request a reboot after uninstall wait until the last one to reboot.




Run This to find the best dns server for your machine, shut down your antivirus while it runs.

Then once the tool has completed, and displayed the best DNS for your machine, apply the settings.

Run a Command as Administrator from the Windows 7 ...

Copy and paste the content of the code box, one at a time hitting enter after each.


	ipconfig /flushdns
	ipconfig /registerdns

Then disable Ipv6 with this Ms Fixit.

I don't see anything referring to ethernet unless it's the Realtek PCIe  FE Family Controller

Yes that is the driver you need to uninstall. Windows will auto reload the driver upon reboot.

Ok all done . I kind of messed up on the DNS thing with the numbers but went back in and re did it then restarted the laptop. Seems a bit faster than before but when I clicked on a web page to load, it seemed to want to hang for a few seconds.(GTG was the web page) Still have issues with some videos freezing and jumping. I seriously believe it is slowly dieing on me. One of the techs here had me run some things to see if the HD was going because IMO it is showing a lot of the signs for a HD slowly going out. My other lappy did a lot of the same as this one is doing.Didn't get the chance to save anything on it but I do on this one.

Is that it ? Is there anything else that may help?

Have you had this machine checked for malware?

 

Also a clean install of adobe flash and a checkdisk may be in order...

Yes "godawgs" in malware went through it with me and went the extra mile and a half in trying to see if there was something else going on.http://www.geekstogo...as-gtg-c/page-1

 

 

Also a clean install of adobe flash and a checkdisk may be in order...

 

By clean install, do you mean uninstall and anything that has to do with adobe?  I think, but not positive, that checkdisk was done with godawgs.
