Vist slow


Try increasing your RAM to 2GB ... 1GB is barely enough to run the OS, let alone an app or two.

Pc is slow and crashes all the time


Hi, if i understand your PC is running slow and craching. ok there could be coursed by a few things but lets do the most probable ones first.

1 - RAM, if you go to the start menu and right click "my computer" in XP or "computer" in vista then properties under memory there will be somethink that says ****GB of Ram ( * being numbers). if you r running vista this should be 2GB or 1GB min. if XP 1GB will run well. if your RAM is not this high then you have to upgrade it. if you still have your manual some times they have the spesifecations at the back and you can find out the max RAM your PC will take and what type it will take. if you dont have the manual you can find this information out by just typing into google eg "dell 2400 spesifications or RAM, etc". when you know what RAM you need then just us google to find the cheapes place to buy. again your manual should tell you how to put it if not you should be able to find it on google.

2 - removing any unwanted software from your PC does speed it up, you can also try defraging your PC - right click C drive properties defrag is under one of the tabs.

3 - Spyware some times spyware can slow your PC down make sure you have an up to date spyware scanner and run a scan.

good luck

Need more memory


Hello,

Your machine takes PC2100 memory modules and yes you should have more memory to run WindowsXP.

For an eMachine the best way to upgrade your memory is to contact eMachine directly and have them advise you or provide you wit memory to suit your needs because their motherboards are pretty specific to them and the specs as sold to you are not available to us.

Use the below to get on your way. Hope this Fixed ya and thanks for using Fix ya.

Regards,

Acer Aspire 5315


I have a friend who has an Acer Aspire 5315 running Vista and it was pretty slow right out of the box with 1gb of ram. I upgraded his Ram to 2gb and it ran moderatly faster and smoother. Vista is a demanding OS because it's so graphical in nature. Windows Vista requires more ram then XP plus a better CPU to run smoothly. His had a 1.6ghz Celeron which is not that great of a CPU to begin with but uping your ram will usually up your performance a few degrees. Be careful with cheap ram it can run hot and unstable. Make sure go with a name brand PNY, Corsair, Kingston, etc. Don't just buy House ram (generic) because it's cheap. It's not worth wasting your money on junk ram.

Hope this helps. M~

Vista


with 2gb of ram. yes you can run Vista but the question is, do you really want VISTA? it might run sure, but it might be too slow, if i were you, i will upgrade the ram and still use XP and you would definitely see a performance boost with that upgrade

Microsoft Vista Too slow


Hiya what processor do you have in... its what & how your processor uses the ram available that would normally determine a happy environment. the minimum ram that Vista is happy and stable running on is 1gb.. so 1gb left over should in theory be enough to run all your office applications... what Version of Office are u running?

Have you recently installed an application that may be in conflict with vista?
Have you tried doing a virus and spyware scan? I would by process of elimination uninstall and reinstall programs to determine what... if any are causing any potential problems.
Do you defrag when necessary?

Try these first .. and we.ll go from there if necessary!

Code 10 Error


Issues: Code 10 error, Physical Memory is 2GB +

1. Go to http://www.station-drivers.com/page/marvell.htm
and download the Marvell Libertas driver Version 1.0.0.53 date: 10/16/2007

2. Run the self-extracting Zip file to uncompress the driver files

3. Under driver\inf\Vista...\32BITS there is a file called "netmw13b". Copy this file to c:\windows\system32\drivers, overwriting the file that is currently there

4. Reboot Vista

There. Four easy steps. Someone please give this a try and let us know whether it's really that simple.


Notes...

32 bit Vista SP1 will install a May '07 driver which will not allow more than 2Gb RAM .Run InvokeSetup after extracting and v. 1.0.0.53 of the driver will be installed. After doing this I added 2GB more RAM (4GB total) and everything works.
