Acer aspire 1800 running very slow. Can I improve it's performance?


FIXING A SLOW COMPUTER
A slow computer could be caused by a number of things - 1. Insufficient RAM (memory) - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to at least 1Gb of RAM. 2. Registry problems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys. Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc. 3. Uninstall/remove unused programs, this will also free up hard disk space. 4. Not enough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn't been configured to manage it. 5. Install latest Windows updates. 6. Update virus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc. 7. Clear the Internet cache for faster browsing. 8. Hard disk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioning efficiently. Run the following programs - Disk Cleanup - removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard disk space. Disk Defragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and therefore the hard disk access is faster.

  1. 1. Shut Down Remote Differential Compression
  2. Remote Differential Compression checks the changes of your files over a network to move them with as little bandwidth as possible instead of transferring an entire file that has previously been moved. With in constantly checking for file changes, this service will greatly slow system performance.
    To shut down this service:
  3. Control Panel
  • Change to Classic View
  • Choose Program Features
  • Select Turn Windows Features On And Off
  • Uncheck Remote Differential Compression


    1. 2. Shut Down Windows Search Indexing
    2. Windows Vista search indexing is constantly checking the files on your system to make their information available for quick searching. This is helpful, but can severely slow system performance.
      To shut down constant indexing:
    3. Select Start then Computer
    • Right Click your C: Drive
    • General Tab, Uncheck Index this drive for faster searching
    • On the next dialog box, Choose Include subfolders and files


    1. 3. Add at least a 2GB USB Flash drive to take advantage of Windows Ready Boost
    2. Ready Boost uses a USB flash drive to provide quick access memory for the operating system. The Ready Boost system can greatly improve system speed.
      To set it up:
    3. Plug in a Ready Boost Compatible USB Flash Drive
    • Select Start then Computer
    • Right Click Your USB Drive in My Computer
    • Choose the Ready Boost Tab
    • Click Use this device
    • Choose as much space as you can free up for RAM usage vs. Storage

    What type of external hard drive can be added


    The motherboard can only take 2 GB of memory. If you tried a larger memory stick in any slot, the motherboard will fail to recognize it. A larger hard drive or an external drive will only increase storage and page file capacity. This will not improve the performance of the computer. Memory caching to the hard drive is limited to the bus speed of the hard drive interface (much slower than the RAM).

    The better option if you can offered it is a new computer, if you do any gaming. You are dealing with a 2.8 GHz CPU with a 400 MHz bus. The computer is probably fine for e-mail but video and gaming response will not improve.

    I wish that I had better news for you.

    My Hitachi Touro 4TB external hard drive get stuck every time I try to transfer large files. How do I fix that? The format is NTFS and the files are 4g and up.



    External hard drives are popular portable storage devices because they allow you to back up files such as documents, music and videos, and transfer files from one computer to another. While external hard drives vary in storage capacity, they are ideal for storing large files such as videos and animations. Files of this nature consume volumes of hard drive and memory space and are best stored in external hard drives. Whether you are using Windows or Mac OSX, transfer large memory consuming files to your external hard drive quickly and safely. Connect your external hard drive to your computer using the Firewire or USB cable that came with your portable storage device. If its transferring to slow the usb lead might be at fault or you might need a usb 3 card which makes data transfers much faster USB 3 card will provide more power when needed to the device to gain maximum throughput and conserve power when the device is connected but is idling http://blog.premiumusb.com/2010/09/usb-2-0-vs-usb-3-0/ these can be purchased on Ebay cheap and easy to install http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/PCI-e-PCI-Express-USB3-0-Card-new-NEC-720200AF1-chipset-/330608109325?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4cf9c7670d for roughly $9 or $10free postage Power on your drive. Some external hard drives do not have a power button, because your computer powers them on automatically using the Firewire or USB cable. Click the Windows "Start" orb and click "Computer" or "My Computer" to launch Windows Explorer if you are using a Windows PC. You should see your external hard drive in the "Drives" section next to the "Local drive (C:)" drive. If you are using a Mac, you should see your external hard drive on the desktop. Double-click your external hard drive to open its hard disk window. If you have any content on your external hard drive, you should see it in this window. Drag files from your computer to your external hard disk's window. Because you are uploading large files, make sure their memory s do not exceed your drive's total memory. Your computer shows a status bar displaying the upload progress for each file you are transferring to your drive. The upload time varies depending on the of the file. Close the hard disk window when you finish uploading the files you want to store, and then click the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon on the System Tray next to the clock, if you are using Windows. The hardware removal window launches. Click your external hard drive's icon in the hardware removal window, and then click "Stop." When prompted, disconnect your external hard drive from your computer. Drag your external hard drive's icon from the desktop to the trash bin on the dock if you are using a Mac. Disconnect your drive from your computer. If you right click in the bottom toolbar select applications to see whats running at the time when transferring the files might be a virus or malware if you see something running that should not be select end now also processes to see what ticking over in the background

    Hope this helps b>

    Stick shows ready boost cache file over 1.4 MB file which will not delete as not required.


    Windows Vista supports "ReadyBoost" -- namely taking some of the space on the USB memory-stick to add RAM to your computer, to make your computer perform better.

    Connect the SanDisk to a Windows XP system, and you'll be able to delete that file.

    HOW TO INCREASE COMPUTER SPEED


    Yes you can increase your PC's performance by following these steps:

    If you have Windows CD, boot your system with it and reinstall Windows and install only required software. Reason: You have too much clutter of junk files. This will help you start over. if you cannot do this, read on.

    Remove all temporary files: Right click on C: drive in My Computer. Select properties then Disk cleanup.

    0fc6f35.png

    Use it to remove unwanted junk files. Tick all the options in the list. Do the same with every drive.

    Next, Press Windows logo Key (between Ctrl and Alt) + R. Input %TEMP% and press enter. Delete all files.

    Restart your PC and defragment drives especially C. Press start --> Accessories --> System Tools --> Disk Defragmentor.

    Change Visual settings:
    • On the Start menu, right-click My Computer and click Properties.
    • In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab. In the Performance area, click Settings.
    • In the Performance Options dialog box, on the Visual Effects tab, you can either click the Custom radio button, and then select which user interface (UI) features to disable to improve performance. Or, if you click the Adjust for best performance radio button, all of the UI features will be disabled. Choose the option that works best for you.
    • Click Apply.
    After performing this, you should notice a small increase in performance.

    If you want big changes, do as follows:

    Increase system memory (RAM) if your motherboard allows. Make sure that you buy a compatible module.

    Install an add-on PCI-E or AGP graphics card. This will give it a real boost.

    As a side noet, there are many software claiming to improve performance but I always end up with an unstable Windows after using them, so I advise you not use them unless you know what you are doing.

    CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME HOW MUCH VIRTUAL MEMORY DOES A PATRIOT 2006 LAPTOP HAVE


    Virtual memory?

    Virtual memory is created and used by windows operating system.
    This value can be changed and solely depends on the hard drive space available.

    Simply put There isnt any limit, nor a minimum. The amount of virtual memory depends on how much was set up and can be increased or decreased at any time.

    The purpose of virtual memory is to allow windows to use part of your hard drive as rams.

    virtual memory and rams (conventional memory are different things)
    you can have as much or as little as u need. increasing it improves performance.

    So No one can actually answer that question. Simply put any amount you want is the correct answer!.
