How to speed up Windows 7 or Vista responsiveness with a USB memory stick in a few clicks.FREE!

A great feature that isn't commonly known is ReadyBoost. It was introduced in Vista and is available in Windows 7 as well. Basically it increases the amount of memory you have by using your memory stick. You can use more then one usb/thumb drive and the bigger they are the better.

Step 1: Just insert your USB drive into a usb port.

Step 2: Click Start > Computer

Step 3: Right click the USB memory stick you plugged in and choose Properties. Click the ReadyBoost tab then choose Use this device. Choose how much space you would like to allocate and that's it!


Enjoy the boost!

my windows does not hav aero pick


If you are using Windows XP this option is not available in this operating system.

This feature was introduced in operating systems which were released after Windows Vista. So it is available in Windows Vista, Windows 7.

If you are using these operating systems then it is definitely has. Else either you have to upgrade your O/S to Vista / 7.

This feature is not activated by default. It depends on the hardware profile of your computer. If your desktop/laptop has less resolution graphics card then, this feature is disabled and there is no option to enable it as your h/w is not supporting this.

Hope this clarifies..

window7 drivers for asus k8vmx


hi

unofrtunately this mainboard is not supported by Winodws 7

Win2003 is about all you'll get (or earlier OS as well)


general information (includes drivers) http://ca.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=dJ2XP7zr8tzeYbLp


FYI:

2008 is combination of vista and windows 2003r2. Some new services are introduced in it
1. RODC one new domain controller introduced in it

[Read-only Domain controllers.]
2. WDS (windows deployment services) instead of RIS in 2003 server
3. shadow copy for each and every folders
4.boot sequence is changed
5.installation is 32 bit where as 2003 it is 16 as well as 32 bit, that's why installation of 2008 is faster
6.services are known as role in it
7. Group policy editor is a separate option in ads


The main difference between 2003 and 2008 is Virtualization, management.
2008 has more inbuilt components and updated third party drivers Microsoft introduces new feature with 2k8 that is Hyper-V Windows Server 2008 introduces Hyper-V (V for Virtualization) but only on 64bit versions. More and more companies are seeing this as a way of reducing hardware costs by running several 'virtual' servers on one physical machine. If you like this exciting technology, make sure that you buy an edition of Windows Server 2008 that includes Hyper-V, then launch the Server Manger, add Roles.


3) In Windows Server 2008, Microsoft is introducing new features and technologies, some of which were not available in Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 (SP1), that will help to reduce the power consumption of server and client operating systems, minimize environmental byproducts, and increase server efficiency.
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 has been designed with energy efficiency in mind, to provide customers with ready and convenient access to a number of new power-saving features. It includes updated support for Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) processor power management (PPM) features, including support for processor performance states (P-states) and processor idle sleep states on multiprocessor systems. These features simplify power management in Windows Server 2008 (WS08) and can be managed easily across servers and clients using Group Policies


i hope this helps you !
