My computer slow down when i upload any music program like imesh n ima using windows xp


If you have less than 512 MB of Ram that is your problem. Add more ram to increase the speed of the computer. You can get ram here. http://www.crucial.com/ Just click "Scan My System" and they will tell you what you have and what you can install with the price. Best money you will spend on a slow computer. Also runs disk cleanup and remove all it finds.

My operating system is windows 98, i recently upgraded my memory card from i gigabyte to 2 gigs, but every time i boot my computer there is an error message low in memory, the question is; how can i boot...


CAUSE:
The Windows 32-bit protected-mode cache driver (Vcache) determines the maximum cache size based on the amount of RAM that is present when Windows starts. Vcache then reserves enough memory addresses to permit it to access a cache of the maximum size so that it can increase the cache to that size if needed. These addresses are allocated in a range of virtual addresses from 0xC0000000 through 0xFFFFFFFF (3 to 4 gigabytes) known as the system arena.

On computers with large amounts of RAM, the maximum cache size can be large enough that Vcache consumes all of the addresses in the system arena, leaving no virtual memory addresses available for other functions such as opening an MS-DOS prompt (creating a new virtual machine).

WHAT CAN U DO?
To work around this problem, use one of the following methods:
  • Use the MaxFileCache setting in the System.ini file to reduce the maximum amount of memory that Vcache uses to 512 megabytes (524,288 KB) or less. For additional information about how to use the MaxFileCache setting, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 108079 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/108079/EN-US/ ) 32-Bit File Access Maximum Cache Size
  • Use the System Configuration utility to limit the amount of memory that Windows uses to 512 megabytes (MB) or less.For additional information about how to use the System Configuration utility, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 181966 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/181966/EN-US/ ) System Configuration Utility Advanced Troubleshooting Settings
  • Reduce the amount of memory that is installed in your computer to 512 MB or less.

Computer very slow and sluggish. Microsoft office documents open very slowly. General performance slow.


Delete all temp & internet temp files and just check if any AV is scanning in the background. AVG / Kapersky / Mcafee do these background scans silently sometimes. Maybe that is slowing down the pc. Disconnect from lan and internet and try wkg on the pc

Memory not written error application occurs (OK to TERMINATE)


Try this: I got it from another website

Hit Windows + R and type cmd and press enter afterwards. Navigate to c:\ by typing cd.. until you are there. Boot.ini is hidden and write protected which means that we have to change that before we are able to edit it. Type the following commands:
  1. attrib -r -h -s boot.ini
  2. edit boot.ini
  3. Look for /NoExecute Optin or /NoExecute Optout and change that to /NoExecute AlwaysOff
  4. Save the edited file
  5. type attrib +h +r +s boot.ini
  6. restart the computer

How to increase my pc speed


You have to upgrade your RAM. 512MB is the minimum. Also you can increase the virtual memory. To do this right click on mycomputer, click properties, click on settings button that is next to performance, Click on virtual memory and then click on change. Set the value to 512. This will speed up your computer a little but stil upgrading your RAM is the best bet.

To slow


Computer slowdowns have several factors.

How much memory do you have?

If its 256 or below, try adding or upgrading it to 512 mb or more. Having insufficient memory causes your computer to take some space of your hard disk as a substitute, which is a lot slower than the memory ram.

Also check how much space is available on your hard disk. About 15% of the hard disk space must be freed to prevent slowdown.

Use the Disk Cleanup tool to clean some unneeded files. Go to My Computer, then right-click the drive you want to clean up, then click Properties, and click Disk Cleanup.

Try also to defrag your files to lessen the time for the access arm of your hard disk to search/read a file. To defrag your hard disk (or other storage device), go to My Computer, then right-click the drive you want to defrag, click on Properties, then tools, and click Deframent now. Analyze first so you will know if you should defrag the volume, then defrag if necessary. Do this every month to prevent too much fragmentation of files.

Scan for virus and spyware, becuase most of them take hard disk space, memory and have high CPU usage, thus making your system slow even there is no program running. For free anti virus, try AVG. For anti-spyware, try SpyBot S&D.

Also make sure that your computer is properly ventilated. Heat could also limit the performance of your computer.
