Unfortunately "real slow" is a subjective analysis and I would need to know what you are comparing it to before going much further. Lots of things could be impacting the performance of your PC or you could just own a slow system (compared to your friend's) and you may need to adjust your expectations (or buy a new PC). However, adding memory can speed up a machine. Clearing out unused files and defragmenting the hard disk will also help. There are lots of tweaks you can do to XP and Vista but they usually only result in marginal performance improvements. You may have a bunch of malware (virus or spyware) running, you may have multiple anti-virus programs, multiple firewall programs, etc. Some people go overboard, not realizing they don't have the extra CPU power needed to run all those programs. Performing a recovery will completely clean out your system and restore it to the factory settings. If the system's original performance from the factory was good this will get you back to that point. (Be sure to back up your data files and system settings before starting the backup though!!)

How to instal a cd rom/cd rw


Hello,

The easiest thing to do is transfer the setup files for you CD-R/RW onto flash media and install from that media inserted into your EEE notebook or copy it off and onto a folder on your EEE's hard drive.

If you do not have any flash media you will need to get some as this is the way to move files on and off your subNotebook until you're on your home network and can access shared folders or drives.

If you have a SSD, then I'd install from the flash media and save the space on your SSD.

After you have installed the external drive, attach the USB cable, or when prompted to do so. Then allow Windows to add new hardware and point it to your installation files on the hard drive or flash media.

This is a basic technique with subNotebooks that don't have a DVD/CD bay or floppy for that mattter.

The trend now is to establish flash media as the defacto storage media. When I was at Office Depot the other day, they had a fish bowl at the checkout filled with 1GB SD cards for pretty cheap, under 10 bucks. I have three 2GB cards I use just for this purpose.

Once you have your subNotebook on the Internet, you can add external devices and let Windows search the Internet for installation files. MS has a huge repository of installation files it can access too, those can be slightly out of date depending on just how new your external device is.

If you get stuck let me know with the details of what failed you and how. I'll help you get through this so you can get onto your wireless router. Then it will be a cake walk to access the external drive. Or you can enable Sharing on your PC's DVD drive and add that in your Network Places. Once you've done this you can access and install the media or any program from your Shared PC DVD drive.

Any questions? just use the comment box below to ask away.

Regards,
Worldvet

Cant start windows after RAM upgrade


Download or get a memory test utility that boots from some device (a floppy, flash drive or CD-ROM) that your PC can read. Run that test to confirm the installed memory is good/compatible. Loose memory modules and PC boards can be zapped just by touching the connector pins while you handle them. During removal or installation you have to frequently touch the machine's frame or wear an ESD strap before handling the module, to prevent this.

Ram memory


Okay, I have a stupid question, the more powerful the chip the hotter it runs. It could be the second slot will not work with a 1 gig because of heat issues and ventilation?

I have the same problem, with 2 one gig chips. I am going to try to replace the easy access slot with a 1/2 gig chip. I'll let you know.

Cheers,
Paul
