PC running slow

  RussG 12:06 26 Apr 2003

Hi Guys,
Have 2 PC's using internet connection sharing with Win ME. One is 950mhz the other 500mhz both with 128meg ram.

When connected to the network the 500mhz PC seems to hesitate before reacting ( even when not connected to the internet. Running standard office applications, no games, so there is no great strain on anything. Going to upgrade the ram but would of thought 128meg was sufficiant for MS Office & Win ME.

Anyway any ideas will be welcome.

No. You need more ram. Me is quite a power hungry o/s. Use minimum of 256Ram. With recent prices around, get yourself a 512Sdram133 for less than £50.Buy 'value' with confidence as ssdram is less finniky than ddr sdram.

Try these as a start. never had problems with them and reasonable prices.

Also try maplin who have free delivery with over£30 orders.
