hi whats safe to disable in startup folder or should i say what should'nt i disable? running win xp home ver 2002 service pack 3 laptop running slow.ithink there might be to much running in the background,iknow theres not enough memory but until i upgrade i'd like to try and disable some startups
what will happen if i just disable the lot? will i be able to startup again? i can't creamcracker it cus it's the wife's laptop.:-)if i do, the next post will be asking for a cardboard box,at best to sleep outside tonight,at worst be buried under the patio.:-))
do you want me to write down the left hand column "service" and "startup item" or do you want all of it? cus there's a lot to write! compaq presario win xp home edition version 2002 service pack 3 amd sempron 3000+ 787mhz 384 mb ram i've done the usual, run anti virus,pc scan, but i'm sure it's all the prosseses running thats slowing it down.as you can see not much ram
Just list the startup items, cooked cow, not the services yet. You certainly could do with some more RAM, 384MB isn't much above minimum for XP. Try running the scanner tool at Crucial click here see what your Presario (model number??) can take.
i thought that was a bit low myself.the true figure is 512mb 256 on each jumper i am going to double it, but just for the time being i'm trying to ease the load, i did a system scan a while back thats how i know. it's a presario v5000 i'll be back with the startup in a moment
