I have hopelessly slow windows xp, Dell Dimension 2400, 2.52GHz, 384 MB of RAM [2002, owned since 2004] Have deleted all invisible startups, run a clean virus scan, run cleanup/cleandisk, disk...


Hi,

It makes no wonder that the machines slow with only having 384MB of RAM installed.

If you were to max out the memory capacity of the machine which i suspect is DDR SDRAM and probably has a maximum of 2GB as this would make the machine much faster that what it is now.

384MB of RAM is just not good enough to run XP properly these days.

If the machine is still in good working order (apart from it being slow) then you could upgrade the RAM.


Regards.

Windows XP booting slowly and audio skipping??? Help!!


Hello,

First to start with, you have to increase the RAM of the laptop, that is what mainly controls the speed of a laptop,or any other system.

If you can also change the hard disc to that with a higher gigabyte, that will also help.

You should also get an external hard disc for storing files.

make sure you dont have too many files on the system if not the system will be excessively slow.

try this and you will realise your system will be in good condition again.

take care

Slow start up....windows home edition of xp


I take it you mean that it started up faster before now?

Some things that can slow it down:
1) run scandisk
2) run defrag
3) run the command msconfig from the Start>run command
Remove unnecessary programs from the startup tab. This doesn't uninstall the programs, just tells them not to start. You may have spyware and adware running.
4) run a good malware detection program and scan for viruses.
5) Install more memory. In the beginning, many companies put 512 MB RAM in the XP machines. You need at least 1 GB of RAM to run smoothly and 2GB for best performance.

Here's the website where you can get your audio driver. Download the .exe file and run it, the installation should start automatically after extraction.

Which should I upgrade?


Upgrade the RAM much easier to do than the CPU.

CPU requires you to find a processor that will work for your laptop motherboard then you gotta open it up and remove the CPU.... TOO MUCH WORK! unless you're very comfortable in doing this.

I would recommend go to 512MB to 1G of instead 256MB.

Inspiron 1150 Slow startup, slow printing, unable to run 2 programs at once


What Operating System do you run? If it is Windows XP SP2 (Home Edition or professional), here are some things you can do to speed up your system. 1st you should remove all programs that are not required from the start menu. Start > Run > Msconfig > startup tab. Unselect all that are not necessary. Also Right click on my computer > properties > Advanced > Performance settings > Adjust for best performance. This should speed things up a little. I would recommend atleast 512 MB of memory to run Windows XP and its applications decently. You should consider an upgrade.
