It also sounds like you have a cooling issue with your processor. Try removing that is over the area of the exhaust vents and clean all the dust and **** off the vents, heat sink, and fan. You may have to remove the fan to do so.

SOURCE: Slow performance after fresh XP install

There are many options you can choose to increase the performance of your machine.

You can increase your virtual memory settings. To do this follow these steps:

Press and hold the Windows Logo Key + press "pause break" key to access System Properties, note the amount of RAM it states before continuing, you will need it for a calculation. (xxxmb)

Select Advanced Tab > Under Performance click Settings > Click Advanced Tab > Under virtual memory click Change button >

Set the Minimum and Maximum to a number 1.5 times the physical amount of RAM that you have. (Providing you have less than 512mb. 2.5x for 1gb or greater.) Hit set, Hit apply.

Before restarting, you may want to consider reducing some of the Visual Effects of XP to gain some resources back.

Manually un-check the boxes listed on the Visual Effects tab that you encountered right before setting the virtual memory. You can also click "adjust for best performance" for an automatic trim.

Also, it is still considered a good idea to defragment the drive after the installation do to how the installer tends to throw out information in a rush. On a clean install I got almost a mb of resources back.

Also, you can tweak the services. Visit this site:
http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm
Using the SAFE settings you will get around 5mb of resources, and picking and choosing after that can amount to another 7.5mb

This will solve your issue.
Let us know if you have anything else.

Laptop dell inspiron n5010 hanging suddenly


There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly or restart at time and then. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the process is for.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. Here is a few good virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

Labtop frezzies alot


A computer freezing could mean many things:

-Viruses are slowing down the system to the point where it stalls and freezes.
-The computer doesn't have enough RAM and too many things are trying to be done without sufficient RAM.
-The computer could be overheating.
-The hard drive could be failing and when it tries to access certain files, it stalls.

Hope this was helpful.

Computer gets very slow by downloading anti virus....plz help me


The anti virus is needed for computer to protect from the viruses .
The anti virus consumes certain amount of cpu and memory usage.There are anti viruses that consume large amount of memory and CPU .
If your system have higher memory and CPU performance you can use any anti virus so that the performance is not downgraded to very much.

If you not having more memory and higher CPU in that case you can use anti virus that can consume less memory and also you can stop services in antivirals which are not necessary

Hard drive


When you say it's slow what I often found is that
1.not enough memory on your laptop
** so your CPU have to use your harddisk as memory,instead of working directly your CPU have another work to manage thus cos your system to slow down.
** you can check memory usage by right-click on your taskbar and click on Task Manager.Go up to Performance and check
Physical memory and see your available memory.

2.use more than one anti-virus program.Its just like before your work has been check by one program and now somebody is calling your same work to be recheck.Thus cos your system to become really slow.

3.Something is running all the time.A virus or something is running all the time.Shut it down by right-click on your taskbar and click on Task Manager.Go up to Performance and see CPU
usage that its 100%!!!! If so go up to process tab and right click
on the process you think is creating problem and End Process Tree.

3.The combination of not enough muemory and also not enough
harddrive space.When I say not enough harddriver I mean really low about 100-300 Megs.

so in your case not the problem with Harddrive..cos you have 1.5G

takecare.
