First and foremost, you should perform a COMPLETE back up of your computer's drive(s) to either CDs, DVDs, Thumb drive(s) or other external drive(s).
Only after you have done this, should you proceed. Microsoft offers an "Easy Transfer Wizard" but there are limitations of what it can do. The most significant of which is the INABILITY to move applications that were previously installed on the Windows XP machine. There is no program I know of that will move installed applications to a new computer and new OS. What it WILL do is move the DATA that was created by these programs; leaving you to reinstall the applications manually again in your new Windows 8 machine. It also moves your photos, music etc - but no applications.
You can purchase, then install extra RAM or memory either online or at Staples or any store that sells computers and parts. Also you can add another hard drive which you can also install yourself if your pc has room for an extra drive. See your pc manual, and it will tell you if you can add an extra drive. Read up on how to install, its really not hard at all to do yourself. If you have an older OS like microsoft vista or xp, you can upgrade to windows 7 or 8 by purchasing one at any computer store, even Walmart. Hope this helps! If you don't feel you can do yourself, then purchase a good computer with at least 3 or 4 gigs of RAM and at least 1 TB hard drive space, as well as a high-performance video card, and a good anti-virus program like Norton or Kaspersky.
Hi, try the following sequence.Insert your XP disk and reboot, during bootup press your ESC button or Del on some PCs, you will be in BIOS, from here you can change you primary boot drive, select CD rom, save changes and reboot. Press return when request to boot from CD appears, wait for the sequence to finish installing, select the section of the drive you wish to change, select delete, confirm and then reformat your hard drive. PC will reboot afterwards and start installing XP. Be aware this will remove everything from your hard drive, so back up first. Hope this helps
1. Kill unnecessary programs, you can do it from task manager.
2. some program starts at startup of PC, they make PC slow, go to start>run, type msconfig and say ok, go to startup tab and the disable the programs which you do not want to start up during PC start up.
3. downloan CCCleaner and run it.
4. Keep C drive clean as possible, move as much items to other drive, less space on c drive can slow down you PC.
5. Many files placed on desktop can make it slow.
6. If you have low memory on your PC then you have to increase it.
7. Virus or Spyware can make pc slow do thorough scanning of your PC.
8. I suggest you to uninstall any programs which are not necessary.
all the best.
It may cause of some reasons.But pay attention to these notes:
1.Maybe Your Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is full,So Remove some useless staffs from your hard drive.Or if you want them I suggest you to buy an External HDD and Transfer them on External HDD and keep them safe.
2.Many Computers runs slow because of viruses, so I suggest you STRONGLY to Install a powerful Anti virus, Update it and scan your computer.(The activation of viruses, trojans and worms is cause of this problem)
3.Use some Optimize software to fix and repair your Registery, HDD and etc... These software are different and you can provide them easily.like Symbian Products
4.If your Hardwares are old, you should upgrade them.Consult about this subject with Experts.
5.Totally, I suggest you to get a back up from your Files and folders, and Format your HDD and re-install your OS, Don't forget ANTI-VIRUSE
its not a virus as when you format your hard drive it would wipe it out ... how many hard drive do you have ? if you have 2 install a new instalation to the good hard drive and you should get to the part of xp that says do you want to format the partition on this hard drive by pressing ( f ) do this and when your pc has finished re-installing you can click on my computer in your start menu then right click on the bad hard drive and run a full format from there ...
Pro won't make it run faster. Make sure the processor is fast enough to handle XP. If it's an older computer you've upgraded to XP, it may not have the horsepower.
Read this page from Microsoft:
If the CPU conforms, the best thing to do is add RAM. I recommend a minimum of 1 GB for XP machines.
Make sure the hard drive is not nearly full, as that will limit the paging file that Windows uses. If your drive is near capacity (+90% full) it will slow down any computer, regardless of how much memory you have, or what speed the CPU is.
It depends how old your computer is. If your computer is more than 5 years old, there will be a problem since the driver software will not be advanced enough. I reccomend installing new driver software. Look it up. Good Luck.
