Re: Processor speed

 

That is a fairly generic 1Tb 2.5 inch laptop hard drive with 32Mb of Cache and 5,400 RPM (revolutions per minute).

I can see that after a little over 3 years this is not going to be the fastest, as I said before and now that it is confirmed you have a regular hard drive, you would get the most speed boost out of replacing this with a solid state drive. You would have to see how much space of this you use, but you would most likely want a 512Gb SSD, it is half the size of your current drive, but as far as what you get for your buck this is pretty much where the sweet spot is now. If you go to 240Gb you may run into space issues and you only save maybe $30 or $40, but if you want a 1Tb SSD (same size as what you have now) you’ll pay double of what a 512Gb costs, prices are constantly coming down and in a couple of years you’ll probably be able to buy a 1Tb for the same price as a 512Gb now, but that won’t do you any good. Of course you can just put up with longer boot times and loading times of applications and keep it the way it is. You would have to check anyways if this laptop you have can even be easily opened up, some of these convertible tablets/laptop thingies are sealed and changing components is not easily possible. Then of course there is the consideration whether it is worth putting $100 or $150 into it, I assume you can’t switch the drives out yourself and I have no idea what a place like Best Buy would charge for that. Keep in mind that you want to make sure you have a good backup of all your data and that whatever applications you have are available for a fresh install either by download or that you have the installers on a USB stick. If you change drives you start out with a fresh install of Windows which if you are comfortable with it you can do yourself with Narrator, then you have to install Jaws or NVDA (whatever you use) and after that install things like Chrome and/or Firefox, Office, iTunes or whatever applications you use. Depending on how much user data you have on your current hard drive you could copy it to an external hard drive first. You can get a 1Tb external drive in the States probably for $50 or $60 so not such a big expense and it is something you then have and can continue to use.

 

As for David’s comments on RAM, whether you buy a laptop or other computer, they do come with whatever RAM is supported by your CPU. You could not put DDR 4 RAM into your laptop which I am quite sure has and can only take DDR 3 RAM. If you have a custom system built you want to of course make sure you get the best RAM possible for your processor and motherboard at the time, beyond that RAM speed is not really a big issue and how much cache a hard drive has is also a lot less important than whether you have a hard drive or SSD.

Hi Michael, 

the start up speed is due to the type of hard drive that you have. There are hard drives with lower revolutions per minute and higher  revolutions per minute and then there are solid state drives which are quicker. There are settings that can be adjusted to change how your windows machine loads.

all depends on what you are doing. If you're into gaming on line real-time over the internet, then you need one heck of a lot more speed and memory. So it really depends. You're better off than if you still had an Apple II+ with 64k RAM and a 6052 processor.

 

What I'm saying is that this is a very open-ended question, and your answers will vary. For now, you have plenty, and actually more memory than I have, but then I'm a senior citizen.

Re: Processor speed

 

Go to the Device Manager, tab once into the treeview and arrow down 5 or 6 times to “Disk Drives”. Right arrow to expand it and see what you have. It may give a model number, you can Google that or post it here and I can tell you what you have.

Easiest way to get to the device manager in Windows 10 is to press Windows Key + X followed by “M” as in “Manager” or down arrow to Device Manager and press enter.

there are many functions that I can still use successfully with Jaws 2019, Word 2016 and track changes. The only thing that seems broken to me is that when I am reading through a revised document, Jaws reads both the deleted and inserted text. In the past, Jaws read only the new text. Now that it is reading both, it can be quite impossible to figure out if revisions have been entered correctly. the text is very difficult to understand. For example, if the original text was I went to the store yesterday, and the word yesterday was deleted and replaced with today, Jaws would read, I went to the store yesterdaytoday. In the past, Jaws would just read the new version of the sentence, I went to the store today.   Hope this makes sense. I've tried every setting of how changes are displayed:  simple markup, no markup, etc, and get the same result every time. I'm using the retail version of Office, not the subscription version (365), which might be part of the problem. I read that there are now separate scripts for 365 and retail Office 2016...my guess is that the scripts for retail Word 2016 (called Classic) are broken.

Well, don't give up.  If the slow machine doesn't have one (most likely) you should consider having a solid state drive (ssd) installed.  Your boot speed will go up a lot.  You can often get away with a much smaller drive if you aren't using all of what you have.  I went from a 1tb drive on my old laptop to a 512gb ssd.  At that time, 1tb was more than i wanted to spend.  It helped a lot.  I eventually took that drive and put it in my wife's machine and gave up on my 8-year-old laptop, it was way slower than what you have.


Good luck.

all depends on what you are doing. If you're into gaming on line real-time over the internet, then you need one heck of a lot more speed and memory. So it really depends. You're better off than if you still had an Apple II+ with 64k RAM and a 6052 processor.

 

What I'm saying is that this is a very open-ended question, and your answers will vary. For now, you have plenty, and actually more memory than I have, but then I'm a senior citizen.

Hi all, this is Michael. 

Today I checked the processor of my HP laptop and here is the information I get for the processor:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-5200U CPU @ 2.20GHz   2.20 GHz

Installed memory (RAM): 8.00 GB

System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor 

Is 2.2 GHZ enough? and how fast can it run? 

All comment and answers are greatly appreciate it.

Re: Processor speed

 

You should also let us know if this laptop has Windows 7 or Windows 10 on it and if it has a hard drive or SSD (solid state drive). I have a laptop from 2012 which I upgraded to an SSD right away when I got it. It is also an I5, but I think a second or third generation and it boots in 10 seconds, just as fast as my much newer Asus with a 6th generation I7 processor and twice as much RAM.

The processor you have came out early in 2015, if you bought the computer in December 2015 it would have been just before the 6th generation processors were released.

I could almost guaranty that if this computer has a regular hard drive and you upgraded it to an SSD and then installed Windows 10 from scratch it would boot up in no time.

Hello.



Yes, there is a pause button.

You can find it by pressing “b” until you get to the series of player
controls.

Or, just use the find command and search for the word “pause”.

Or, turn the virtual cursor off with insert-z and press the letter k.



If you can’t hear something, you can always press ctrl-m to mute the sound

Hello.



Yes, there is a pause button.

You can find it by pressing “b” until you get to the series of player controls.

Or, just use the find command and search for the word “pause”.

Or, turn the virtual cursor off with insert-z and press the letter k.



If you can’t hear something, you can always press ctrl-m to mute the sound
until you find what you are looking for, and then unmute with ctrl-m again.

Re: looking for others using Jaws 2019 and track changes in Word 2016

Amy Bower
 

there are many functions that I can still use successfully with Jaws 2019, Word 2016 and track changes. The only thing that seems broken to me is that when I am reading through a revised document, Jaws reads both the deleted and inserted text. In the past, Jaws read only the new text. Now that it is reading both, it can be quite impossible to figure out if revisions have been entered correctly. the text is very difficult to understand. For example, if the original text was I went to the store yesterday, and the word yesterday was deleted and replaced with today, Jaws would read, I went to the store yesterdaytoday. In the past, Jaws would just read the new version of the sentence, I went to the store today.   Hope this makes sense. I've tried every setting of how changes are displayed:  simple markup, no markup, etc, and get the same result every time. I'm using the retail version of Office, not the subscription version (365), which might be part of the problem. I read that there are now separate scripts for 365 and retail Office 2016...my guess is that the scripts for retail Word 2016 (called Classic) are broken.

Hi Michael, 
the start up speed is due to the type of hard drive that you have. There are hard drives with lower revolutions per minute and higher  revolutions per minute and then there are solid state drives which are quicker. There are settings that can be adjusted to change how your windows machine loads.

If I recall correctly, Performance Monitor will show you how much your CPU, memory and storage are being used over time. Some of the same information is in Task Manager as well.

I can take my 7-year old laptop on my 275 Mbps fiber connection and download things a lot faster than somebody with the latest 9th generation I7 system on a much slower connection.

all depends on what you are doing. If you're into gaming on line real-time over the internet, then you need one heck of a lot more speed and memory. So it really depends. You're better off than if you still had an Apple II+ with 64k RAM and a 6052 processor.

 

What I'm saying is that this is a very open-ended question, and your answers will vary. For now, you have plenty, and actually more memory than I have, but then I'm a senior citizen.

Hi all, this is Michael. 

Today I checked the processor of my HP laptop and here is the information I get for the processor:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-5200U CPU @ 2.20GHz   2.20 GHz

Installed memory (RAM): 8.00 GB

System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor 

Is 2.2 GHZ enough? and how fast can it run? 

All comment and answers are greatly appreciate it.

if you turn off the virtual pc cursor you will have access to all of the control shortcut keys.
j, k , l for rewind, pause and fast forward.
if you have a desktop keyboard the extended left and right arrow will also rewind and fast forward. the up and down arrows will increase or decrease the volume.
i don't know the shortcuts for a laptop keyboard.
