Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
My computer seems to download too slowly. My Dell Dimension 1100 comes with 2 X 256 megs of memory. I pretty much surf and do email, nothing fancy. Is there an experiment that I can do to determine if I need more memory? (My machine if bug free and defragged.)
Downloading files and processing files are two different things. How fast your computer downloads files is due to your Internet Service Provider. How fast it processes that information relies on a variety of components such as the processor its self, the RAM, as you mentioned, and sometimes your hard drive speed and space.
Figure out which process you are describing--either downloading files or actually opening and processing the files and you'll know where to go.
Just an FYI though, today's computers are shipped with at least 1 GB (1,024 MB) of memory.
