You did not state the make and model of your computer so I can only recommend generic checks. When was the last time you ran disk defragmentation? A fragmented disk will slow down system operations. What operating system are you using and are you performing regular system updates? How much memory does the computer have? Windows XP SP1 ran well on 512Mb of memory, but after upgrading to SP3, you require at least 1Gb to run with any effeciency. How big is your hard drive and how much data free space is available? If your system is low on memory and your hard drive is almost full, paging (moving data from memory to hard drive and back to memory) is impacted, and will slow down the system. What speed Internet connection do you have? Dial up is much slower than broadband or DSL. Lastly, what browser are you using and do you regularily delete the temp internet files?
All of the above items will have a direct impact on your system operations. Also, make sure you are running a good antivirus program and perform regular scans. It is possible that you have a virus that is using your machine as a "zombie" and eating up your bandwidth sending spam.

Dell computer.5 yrs.old. Very,very,slow.What can be done? Have dial up internet service. Also, what does memory upgrade mean?


Hi,

There's nothing you can do about your internet speed, dial up is dial up and is known to be slow. If you want fast internet then you would need broadband.

A memory upgrade would speed up the overall performance of the PC. For example: the computer may take 5 minutes to fully boot up and programs taking time to launch. This would not fully resolve but help it to be more responsive.

A memory upgrade is always recommended by me. I expect that your computer can be probably maxed out to 2GB of memory.


Regards.

Windows XP Virtual Memory is low. How can I regain memory?


Virtual memory is "memory" on your hard drive, not actual memory. The best way to regain this is reboot and shut down some of the stuff that runs automatically when you DO boot up.

(This Virtual memory is space set aside on your hard drive that the processor moves data into and out of like it would put data on a memory module ... but in comparing the two, the virtual memory is SLOW.)


You can increase the size of your virtual memory to anything you want. Some say too large a allocation will slow you down and too little will cause crashing or slow opertion. You are 99.44% probably set to let Windows manage your virtual memory (default) at this time.

thanks for posting your question to FixYa.com

Hello there:
first off you will need to ensure that the memory that you have purchased is fully inserted in the slots next ensure that the memory is compatable with the motherboard that you have and your system
go to the manufactures web site of the computer and there will be a technical support option there with phone numbers to help you.
Also you may also want to swap slots with the memory sticks and see if this helps ok so please try these ideas. ok

Thank you for your help last time


256 mb of memory is not very much. It's the bare minimum you can get by with running Windows XP. Adding more would certainly be an improvement.
Only 1 gig of free space left on an 80 gig hard drive is not much room for Windows to work with. I would definitely try to get rid of or back up some files to make more room. You should also run a system clean up and do a defragmentation of the hard drive.

You should keep your anti virus software up to date if you have one installed. If not you can go HERE and run Trend Micro's Houscall on your PC. Viruses and Spyware will bog down a system and cause it to run extremely slow.

Slow RT on loading new site or new page


Hi Jean,
sounds like you might need to add more memory to your PC. A fast Internet connection won't make a slow machine run any faster. If you right click on My Computer and choose properties, the box that comes up should tell you how much memory you currently have. If it's 512mb or less, that's a good indication that that is the problem.
