My current HP laptop I've found recently after reinstalling XP on my son's HP laptop to be slow when online.

Mine is a Win7 64bit with a AMD E2-1800 APU with Radeon HD Graphics, 1700Mhz, 2 cores, 2 Logical processors.
4 GB ram with 1.96 spare available.

Son is a Win XP X86 based with a Intel X86 Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 2,1662 Mhz, with 2.5 GB ram with 1.22 spare available.

Both have the same version Antivirus and Malwarebytes and same Chrome browsers with no extensions etc.

Most of my 'Selective Start-up' start-up's are turned off and various non Microsoft services disabled. His Start-up and services are as normal.

Have used a JunkRemovalTool, a Deep scan of both the Antivirus and Malware with any found removed, with no changed.

Chrome in both cases, the settings are the same and with the cookies 'allow local data to be set' and 'block third-party cookies and site data'.

So why would the older laptop be faster online, than mine.

What would be things to look for reasons to be slower.

thanks

I assume that both PCs are connecting to the same router? How is each connected?

What download speeds (e.g., with Speedtest.net) do you get on each?

Yes, both Laptops were using WiFi to the same Router.

Mine Win7 - Ping 32ms - D/L Sp 9.43 Mbps - U/L Sp 0.93 Mbps.
His WinXP- Ping 31ms - D/L Sp 10.93 Mbps - U/L Sp 0.93 Mbps

This taken within a minute of each other, but varies over a few tests where the Download speed is between 7 and 11 Mbps on each Laptop.s

If I do them simultaneously, each time the XP is the faster.



Thanks

You can make sure you have the latest wireless driver (from the PC manufacturer's web site if an integrated adapter) but there's really not much else I can think of that is worth trying to do for such small differences.

Thanks,

Strangely if I do a download of a PDF or such as MS updates or others. It seems quite fast.

But if such as on Chrome or IE, its slow opening the requested website to view more so if several pages are there to be viewed such as on a forum such as this. I see loads of items waiting to load one after the other in the bottom L/H corner for the web page to open then any other pages after the first waiting for items to be loaded etc.

Where as the XP is then alot quicker in opening such pages.

but I will update the drivers from HP.

thanks

Just as a test, try them with AV turned off with a previously tested site/file.
Be aware that your router may have buffered the files so they either have to be tested very close together after a prior download of the file or a long time apart.
