Old slow computers: breathing life into them

Hi Relatives,

A while ago, I talked about computers being slow and we went through instructing you in using a defragmentation program as well as anti-virus and anti-malware software.

If you have an older computer, then your operating system could be slowing you down. One young person, Golden Kobi, has an older computer that his father handed down to him. It has Windows 7 on it. The problem is that Windows 7 requirements are pretty severe for an older computer. Windows 7 requires at least 1GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM memory, and at least 16GB of hard drive space.
Golden Kobi's computer sometimes runs and if it runs, it is very slow.

Solution: Linux distribution (or version) of Lubunt 11.10. This is similar to Ubuntu 11.10 but is intended for computers with limited resources, which means old and slow computers.

I have successfully installed this operating system on a 10 year old Compaq Presario laptop and it works great! You might not be able to run demanding games or have 30 tabs open on your web browser, but you can do web surfing, write documents, and create graphic images quickly and easily.
The software is free and it works great. Most programs that you have been using, are now available for the Linux format. Microsoft Office suite has been very successfully replaced with Oracle's OpenOffice and an independent spin-off from OpenOffice, LibreOffice.
These office suites are very popular world-wide and are almost exactly like Microsoft Office. Microsoft Office is the premier office suite, but I've been using OpenOffice and LibreOffice for several years and I love them. There is only one thing I can think of that these two suites don't have is a multiple-level clipboard (meaning that you can have multiple cut-n-paste items available), but I have found a way around that with Clip-O-Matic for Windows (I'm working to find one for Linux). It does the same thing only better.
The best thing is that these office suites are very good, professional and free.


A Great Idea: ship your laptop to me and I will get it working, free. Just the cost of shipping both ways (remove the battery) and of course, donations are always appreciated.

There are other operating systems besides the ones I stated above.  If you have special requirements, let me know and we see if there is Linux program (distribution) that is better suited for you.



Welcome to the home of love, where your computer gets to know of hugs. Take the time to give it love, to ensure the spine stands, on the test of time (until you update protection files again). For only you can operate the golden rule, do unto your computer, who knows who to fool. But we do outwit the slyest fox, when we give love instead of gloves (put them up, combative forces). The greatest part of protection is clear, the smooth operation of moving in space is dear (world wide web). Protect my computer God above to bring the Angels down below. Bless and bless the common place, to be rest assured that all is grace.

Help for Older and Newer Computers

Dear Relatives,

Today, Monday, I briefly talked to Golden Koby about a computer that given to them. They took it to their nearby computer shop to see if they could gain access to the password but to no avail.
I reviewed some information from the Microsoft support website about system passwords and the results was that if you don't know and/or cannot get the password, you need to reinstall the operating system software.

Regarding older computers, this is what I would like to suggest to anyone who reads this blog posting:
Do not spend time or money taking older computers to the local shop to see if they can help.
Let me help you. If you don't want to, that's OK; I just wanted to offer because I love doing this kind of stuff.

I have two programs that I have become used used to that I can recommend for older (and newer) computers for free! The operating systems I am referring to are: Ubuntu 11.10 and Lubuntu 11.10. Some companies are shipping brand-new computers with Ubuntu 11.10.
Depending on the computer hardware, I can suggest which one to install on your computer. I can send you a CD-ROM or you can download these programs off the internet.

Please let me know what kind of computer you have that you cannot get the password for (or any computer for that matter).
1. the manufacturer name: might be on the laptop lid or if you have desktop computer, somewhere on the case, and might also be on the bottom or back of the computer.
2. open the laptop lid and look for any names or numbers.
3. look at the laptop bottom for any names or numbers including S/N numbers (serial numbers)
4. turn on the computer and watch for any names or numbers that whisk before your eyes. You might have to do this several times to get the information.
5. One more place that might have information is in BIOS. To get into this, turn on the computer and note at the bottom left of the screen, it will show F2 or F10 or Esc to get into BIOS. This will also go by pretty quick, so you might have to do it a couple of times to get it. Write down anything like manufacturer and model numbers, hard drive information, etc.
6. email me for more help. Do not be shy.

Given the information you get off of the computer or computers, I can get you started on using that computer that thought was ready for the recycle bin. Based on the information you send me, I might also recommend buying more memory or a better hard drive.
Some old slow computers have limited RAM memory that can be installed and that could be a limiting factor and you might have to face the fact that it is time to recycle. Again, let me help you decide.
Note: do not put old computers, printers, televisions or monitors into the trash. Always use recycle.
Love and blessings,
Holiness David
