Generally there are many reasons causing your Sony Vaio laptop or
desktop PC running slow or freezing. For example, lack of free
disk space, registry corruption or redundancy, overload startup
programs, virus attack, fragmented hard drive etc. There are
manual ways to get all those issues fixed but it costs time and energy,
and most importantly it needs technical skills. So I'll recommend a
quick yet easy fix solution, as you can see here:
the best thing you could do is to increase your amount of ram in your pc this will handle the slow down problem. recording software takes quite a bit of ram space dvd software takes more ram than your cdrw. if you video card doesnt have its own on card ram this will also slow you down. depending on the motherboard you have its possible to upgrade the proccessor to a faster one 2.8ghz intel new can be bought for like 17bucks but ram is the easiest and sounds like just what your needing.
There are signs of possible the OS which Win XP is corrupted or there. What i could advise you to do is to save every important documents you have and then reformat the system back to factory defaults.. Everything will be back to normal Cheers!!!
