    Hello friends,

    i have asus laptop k55a, it is new bought, it has 4 GB RAM and 2 core, i installed windows 7 ultimate 32bit. problem is that its reaction is very slow even when i click on the right side of mouse for ,,refresh" thinks for a while, when i turn it on windows welcome sound comes late.

    With 4GB Ram I would install 64bit OS anyway! That would give you the advantage to use either 32bit and 64bit Apps.

    For to run slow, check first the power settings. Personally I would recommend to create 2 different Power Plan:
    1. High performance
    2. Mobile perfomance

    For to use with High Performance, I would have the Power Supply connected at all times at Home/Office or at places I could use the electricity and set all to max limits!
    Mobile Performance with reduced power consumption and if an Power Supply isn't connected. That would also downgrade the CPU Speed etc.!

    Also check the Graphic Drivers that you've the latest installed. If your Laptop use Dual Graphic, let say Intel + Nvidia, Intel + ATI etc. you'll need to have both drivers installed. Check with Asus Website!

    I would also run some tests on your Hard drive.

    it's 50/50. Thinking that it's still new and your laptop is running slow. But they are right, you have to install the 64bit to know if that's the main reason. Good luck! :)

    Try this

    goto regedit and go to this and delete all other entries except "new"
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

    then try whether now the right click is still slow in response.

    Check your hdd...run cmd as admin chkdsk /f /r
    Then run sfc /scannow
    If no errors, and I assume you have Windows fully updated, you might look into if there is any chance you picked up a virus..???
    Device manager show no missing drivers?

    And yes you should be running 64-bit however, your fresh install 32-bit system should be just as quick to respond.
    In normal average task usage the response time difference (32 to 64-bit) Win 7 is only microseconds.... you cannot notice.
