Question about Graphics Cards
Logging-on takes a long time, when I play any game on my pc, it often hangs or crashes.! Even browsing on different websites takes too long. This pc used to be very nice to work on but now, it has become so boring I could throw it thru our window!
First, check that your RAM is in good order (physically) and has adequate capacity to run your system.
MemTest86+ can be downloaded from here:
Note: Using the minimum RAM is definitely not good enough! Programs which launch at startup can consume the total memory and this will cause the problems that you are having - you have probably installed several programs (and/or games) which run at startup which are now taking up more of your RAM than you were previously using.
Note: a Windows XP PC runs best with 512 Mb of RAM (not the 128 Mb that is recommended) but if you are playing games then I would suggest about 1 Gb of RAM to be safe.
Next I suggest that you run a full system scan for viruses and malware - as Trojans can cause this sort of problem too.
