Speed up my pc like new - Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Posted by on

  • Patrick Kam May 11, 2010

    There is no quick and no 100% certainty on speeding up Vista. If the graphics card has it's individual chipset + memory then it helps dramatically.


    Even in XP Pro I turn many "Effects" off to get more performance with minimal visual impact. If you can navigate your way to Performance Settings in Vista (I used Vista but no more - it's weird where most common settings in Vista requires more clicks than XP), UNTICK most of the settings such as smooth scrolling, Animate/Slide this/that, etc. Especially the stupid AERO effect (copycat idea with half the performance). Then you should see your PC speeds a bit faster during use.


    Good luck!

    Try the program speed up my pc by uniblue. Or try deleteing temp files, unnecessary programs, freeing up disc space, compacting the disc, and then defragging the disc, Then clean the registry and defrag it.

Windows Vista was a very resource hungry operating system. I recommend a PC to run at least 2 Gigabytes of RAM on top of at least a 256 Megabyte or 512 Megabyte Graphics Card to be able to use it effectively. I have tested Windows 7 Beta and they have done ALOT when it comes to better performance. I ran Windows Vista Home Premium on my laptop with 2 GB of RAM and a 256 MB Graphics card and it was kinda slow, I am now running Windows 7 Ultimate Beta and it is TONS faster. Vista was pretty much built to be slow, no questions about it.

I recently added 2 sticks of 1 Gb Ram to my desktop, to now have a total of 4 1 Gb sticks. This newly added memory is PC2 @ 5300Mhz speed. The older 2 sticks of 1 Gb memory are PC 2 @ 6400 speed,...


It depends on what you would like the end result to be. If you need to multi-task, and have 10 windows running at once, go with the 4GB @ 5300 because while it might take a little longer your computer will still be able to handle all the information. However if you are just using it for light browsing and would prefer speed over bulk (when it comes to data processing) go with the 2 @ 6400. I don't think it would be worth it to get 2 more @ 6400, technology is advancing so fast. If you have 60 bucks you can upgrade to two 4GB @ 10600 (8GB total for $60) 1333MHz PC3. Lookup Corsair XMS3 4GB RAM.

I just got a new dell. i've hooked my old hp


1. Try to connect this printer to your PC by ETHERNET cable as opposed to USB 2.0 and see if it speeds up.

2. If it speeds up we know it isn't necessarily the printer giving the problem

3. Now we start to look at the cable. Use a brand new cable to attach it to the PC. If it persists it may very well be the USB port on the Printer itself.

4. To test the port, attach it to another PC and if it speeds up as u expect, then it is not the USB port on the Printer

5. Now it's time to check the Printer Software on the new Dell and fiddle with it a bit accordingly.

Solution
If it is that u cannot get it to speed up by USB and it works well by Ethernet, just use Ethernet to connect it and call it a day

Memory card slots


1 of 2 things.

1, The memory is not compatible.

or 2, the new memory is not the same as the existing memory. Most mother boards can take a few different types or speed memory. So the speed of the memory in the pc is different then whats in it.

it all has to match.

WHAT IS MAX MEMORY I CAN PUT IN EMACHINE T2893 ?


Comes with 0.5GB or 512MB from factory, can be expanded to 2GB or 2048MB
IF you want more speed it might be a good idea to consider buying a new computer but adding more ram will definitely speed it up.

Vga problem


You can update it using a new VGA card

Before that you have to check your computer performance.( speed , ram , bus speed, etc)

if these are compatible with your new VGA card then you can upgrade your VGA using a new separate VGA card.
