Stupidly slow computer

  Chris-190573 21:59 30 Sep 2004

I have 128 ram and an 80 gig hard drive of which im only using 20. The computer boots up slowly and sometimes stops halfway through and comes up with "dumping physical memory to disk" then counts to 100 and restarts. Once loaded the screen seems to load in layers and can take a minute to load a page. I have broadband and the text changes in the title bar and then the picture takes ages to catch up. Can anyone help please???

Then you need lots more memory 256 is the bare minimum
