Hi folks,is there any tips anyone can give on how to speed up performance other than installing more ram?It's a brand new computer with 766mb of ram but it's so slow compared to my own computer running xp with 256mb of ram.I've disabled UAC,any help is much appreciated.Thanks.
By right clicking on your hard disk drive in Computer and clicking properties then tools then defragment now you can select the Defragmenter to run on a schedule. If you process lots of files each day i suggest you set the schedule to run every day.
Go to the start menu, type msconfig into the start search bar then press enter. If the user account control box appears then click continue, click startup at the top of the system configuration utility. Untick the items that you don't need or want to start up when the computer boots up, this will most probably make it boot up faster. Leave the windows defender and microsoft ones as these are needed.
Thanks for the help folks.I've already altered the startup in msconfig.The computer is only being used for surfing the net but just seems so slow.I'll need to see about adding more ram to see if this helps.I just find it strange that it's quite a bit slower than mine with xp and 256mb of ram,anyway,thanks folks.
Yes it will be. The graphics requirements for Vista are high. The general view is 1GB RAM is the working minimum for good fast performance. 256 MB is simply not enough for Vista and only "adequate" for XP.
