The system has slowed down considerably since I loaded XP

We got a new hard drive and installed XP. The hard drive is quite fast. One of the most expensive from CPC. Since then the system has slowed down considerably. Question

1) Can I disable part of xp as I only use this computer as home user and internet?

2) I do not know how much RAM I have in the computer. (Serial no WO 00695416. Can you tell by looking up the serial no. in your records

3) If I increase the RAM size will it work faster?

4) If so can you please tell me by how much I should increase the RAM by?

5 How much will it cost me?

My emachine t2482 doesnt run as fast as it did before i think its because its not reading my other hard drive it shows that its there but when i go to my computer it says error help please


Windows computers have a tendency to slow down over time due to accumulation of what we in the industry call "cruft". Each time you install a new program, even if you remove it, it will tend to leave a mess behind. Each icon you see in your system tray is another program running int he background, slowing your system down.
The best way to combat this is by regularly formatting and reinstalling Windows (at LEAST every two years). Back up all of your important files to CD, USB flash drive, or external hard disk, write down a list of what programs you have installed that you still need, then follow your manufacturer's recommended process for doing a system recovery or factory restore, which will erase the contents of the hard disk and bring the system back to the way it came from the factory. Once that's done, reinstall your software and restore your backed up files.

Complaint to your DSL provider for slow speed. As possible, integrate your RAM and processor. Download with DAP (Download accelerator plus) and install Google Chrome for fast surfing. Install a licensed antivirus or registry booster.

Hello Mike, Hi, may I suggest you try first to defrag your hard drive, Im sure when you power on your PC, the hard disk led keeps on blinking, your hard drive may have developed bad tracks and sectors, this slow moving process tends to go forever.

Defragmenting and checkdisk can find faults and bad sectors and tracks that slows down the performance of your PC.

Reformatting should be done if your defragmentation procedure fails to speed up your PC.

Try to run an antivirus program, which may help speed up your PC by detecting viruses, that tends to load forever, or slow down the booting process.

You may want to check the hard drive - sounds like it may be starting to fail. When it reaches the point of not continuing does it start to click? If you hear clicking then the drive is having issues and its time for a new one.

AcerPower 1000 -- VERY slow loading


Your potential problem might be a virus. If you are having an updated anti-virus software and are running regular scans and found nothing, Then this might be the problem, while making the system get restored, the frequent problem is that, xp doesn't load the drivers which you installed for your system and it loads its own drives (which sometimes won't go with your devices). Try installing the drivers (especially display and motherboard drivers). If this doesn't work, I better suggest that you do a complete format of the system and install windows xp afresh.. Then there should be no problem. These're the possible solutions which i can infer from the details you've given..

Regards..

Hard Drive


Yes this hard drive should work with your system. all you should take into consideration is whether the inputs and such are the same and if all the other components in your system will support the newly added part.
