Question about Computers & Internet
A dell insperation 1200 runs very slow . 256 mem , 80 gig hd , over a gig free, so not a windows vertual mem , windows xp pro operating system , but running like windows 311 with a 14 400 kbs modem
256 mb of memory is not very much. It's the bare minimum you can get by with running Windows XP. Adding more would certainly be an improvement.
Only 1 gig of free space left on an 80 gig hard drive is not much room for Windows to work with. I would definitely try to get rid of or back up some files to make more room. You should also run a system clean up and do a defragmentation of the hard drive.
You should keep your anti virus software up to date if you have one installed. If not you can go HERE and run Trend Micro's Houscall on your PC. Viruses and Spyware will bog down a system and cause it to run extremely slow.
