Re: nvda unresponsiveness

Yes indeed that processor is struggling nowadays.
Also not much Ram there so its probably using virtual memory, ie the hard drive, and if that is not an SSD one then its going to be real slow in lots of situations.
I had one of those machines some time ago and it was very slow doing some stuff, like in Word, finding and displaying files in explorer and even displaying some web pages.

I think its a cut down processor and so causes a bottleneck when several things are trying to get the processor time together.
Download the resource monitor add on from the web site of nvda contributors and see what the processor usage is at various times.

Subject: [nvda] nvda unresponsiveness

Morning nvda users

I am Marisane from SA.

I have, for sometime now, been looking for your assistance regarding
nvda unresponsiveness but to no avail.

I have recently upgraded to nvda 2017.4, but the unresponsiveness
still persists.

May I know whether this may be due to my laptop's using intel seleron
processor at a speed of less than 2ghz?

Does the processor type and its speed have any impact on nvda's
functionality / dysfunctionality?

What processor and speed should one take into account when buying a
laptop so that nvda may respond positively?

I am frustrated, because this happens only with nvda and not with jaws.

I use jaws demo as I have no licence for it to do some work on my PC,
but it responds very well that I do not have the same problems as
those with nvda.

If the processor type and its speed are the cause of nvda'
unresponsiveness, why only it and not other screen reader like jaws?

Your urgent assistance in this regard is appreciated in advance.

Please, please, please help, I am getting frustrated everyday.

I solely rely on nvda as my jaws is only 40 minutes.

Hope you understand.
