Just noticed a lot of console errors.

Macbook 7,1 has been so slow since I upgraded to Lion, but for the most part I've just lived with it.
today I open console and found a few errors:

Mar 19 18:34:37 unknown-10-9a-dd-b3-61-df [0x0-0x16016].com.google.Chrome[209]: [3910:519:25828567382678:ERROR:schema_generated_bindings.cc(662)] Could not find specified request id: 9

Really have no idea what any of them mean. I did find some errors with "Wyse" but I think I've fixed them by re-installing it, and using the uninstaller in the DMG. These programs were never reinstalled after upgrading to Lion - is it recommended that they are reinstalled?

thanks for any help.

I also get those errors inside the kernel log.

How much RAM do you have, it seems Lion needs in excess of 4Gb to run well.
The stock 4Gb just doesn't cut it when running more than a few applications.

Did you install Lion over the top of Snow Leopard or was it a fresh install?
I'd recommend a fresh install for Lion when upgrading.

Thanks for the reply, I have 4GB of RAM.
Does anyone else know why I am getting these errors?

Having only 4Gb RAM is probably why your system is slow. Check if you have a lot applications starting on login, do you have much showing as running in your menu bar?

As to your errors, if you spend all your time looking through the console trying to fix every error, you'll drive yourself potty. If they relate to a specific application, try uninstalling and then reinstalling it.

Thanks but I don't think RAM is the issue here, my system never takes up all 4GB of RAM.
Some errors I don't understand and do not seem to relate to any app.

I don't think OS X will show as using all your RAM, even if it's just 4Gb because it swaps memory to HD (pages in and out). There's plenty of threads about it here on MR.

Start Activity Monitor and take a look at the System Memory tab and take note of the page in and page outs figures.

From an Apple support doc:

Page ins: / Page outs:

This refers to the amount of information moved between RAM and the Mac's drive. This number is a cumulative amount of data that Mac OS X has moved between RAM and the Mac's drive. Note: The number inside the brackets shows recent page activity.

Tip: Page outs occur when the Mac has to write information from RAM to the hard drive (because RAM is full). Adding more RAM may reduce page outs.
