I know of a few ways to speed up Vista short of buying more stuff to jam in your computer.

1) Download PC Decrapifier. it scans your startup folder for unneeded programs vista loads you with and removes them. http://www.pcdecrapifier.com/download
2) Tweak your power settings. If you are running on a laptop or desktop you can access the power settings in the task bar and there is an option to change the power settings. Change it to "High Performance" Just click the power icon in the task bar and a small window will pop up asking you what to do.
3) Get rid of programs. Uninstall any programs that YOU installed and don't use. ** I would not suggest uninstalling any other programs for risk of messing up your computer.
4) Defragment your hard drive. Go into "My Computer", right-click your "C" drive and click properties. Now go into the tools tab and click the "Defragment" option. Then just run the defragmentor. It will take some time so I would suggest running it overnight.
4) Empty your recycle bin. There should be an icon on the desktop of the recycle bin. Just right click it and click "Empty Recycle Bin."
5) Disable convenience features. Disable things like the sidebar and windows messenger at startup. These are convenient but they take up more memory.

Hope this helps!

Install more RAM. it probably only comes from the factory with 1 gb of installed RAM. if you go to this link http://configurator.pny.com/staples/ you can figure out what kind of RAM you need and how much it costs and how much you can expand it to. If you need help installing it let me know :D

You could, drivers are based on manufacture. Like Realtek is a common maker of audio chips, and sometimes distributors use a popular motherboard.
You may have plateaued at Vista, by try the Troubleshooting Compatibility with Vista 64 drivers before you roll it back.

BTW - This happened to me with Win 8.

I CAN'T COPPY FROM MY OLD CAMCORDER SONY TO MY NEW HP LAPTOP


Hi there
Vista does not support that camera, you will have to use an XP machine to copy to, this is because there are many hardware and driver issues with Vista.

Thanks for using Fixya!!!!

MISSING FILES OF WINDOWS VISTA HOME PREMIUM


You can boot up your Vista cd and it will give you the option to Install or Perform a Repair.
Since you say that you have already re-installed it, I would save the data and continue with a complete installation IE:format and Install.
