not sure if this is the right section or not but figured i would try posting this here first.
hi i have a toshiba satellite L355-S7915 laptop. for a while i have been experiencing my laptop to lag alot while im on the internet. but mostly when im playing games on facebook. i use google chrome and i tried to switch to mozilla firefox but it still lags. ive tried the following:
1. defragging the computer
2. scanning the computer(with avg)
3. using system mechanic to clean clutter out and stop running programs in background and unwanted programs from starting on startup.
4. tried hooking a ethernet cable to my modem to see if it would still lag(cause people have told me that wireless will still lag) and with the ethernet cable connected it still lagged.
i don't know much about computers all i know how to do is scann for viruses, remove them, defrag and what not. but im not really detailed with computers. but ive been searching online trying to familiarize myself with computers more in depth besides just knowing how to remove and virus and stuff. but i'm kind of back up against a wall and not sure what else to try or do. i don't have the money to bring to have someone check it out or fix it or what not.
the computer itself is about 6 or 7 years old i believe. and im also using windows vista(not sure if that helps or matters but figured i would throw it in anyway) but any suggestions or help or responses would be greatly appreciated. thanks. in advanced
