Re: laptop inspiron 9300 runs very slow
See if the hard drive needs to be defraged. You can do that by going to computer, selecting your hard drive with the mouse. Press the right mouse button and select properties. Select tools. Select defragmentation.

Please Dont install VISTA, it is bloated, slow and buggy.
Either stick with XP or use Windows 7, 7 is far better than Vista.
If you are after a free download, try this 1 http://isohunt.com/torrent_details/204960365/windows+7?tab=summary
, you will need a torrent client like Utorrent, this is here http://www.utorrent.com/downloads
The download will take a while, it will come with an activation patch.
You usually install windows 7 without the serial, then run the patch after to make it genuine.
Well, you need more RAM. 1 GB is not enough for Vista Ultimate. Contact Dell to upgrade and add a 2 GB memory module for a total of 3 GB. Apparently, you have 30 GB disk full with the Vista OS and software programs. At some point, I'd like to see you extend your partition for your 160 GB drive so that "C" is much larger than 40 GB. You'll need one-one assistance via FixYa.
Windows Vista was a very resource hungry operating system. I recommend a PC to run at least 2 Gigabytes of RAM on top of at least a 256 Megabyte or 512 Megabyte Graphics Card to be able to use it effectively. I have tested Windows 7 Beta and they have done ALOT when it comes to better performance. I ran Windows Vista Home Premium on my laptop with 2 GB of RAM and a 256 MB Graphics card and it was kinda slow, I am now running Windows 7 Ultimate Beta and it is TONS faster. Vista was pretty much built to be slow, no questions about it.
hi , the slower of the pc has many causes , could be hardware or software issue, after you upgrade the meomory and you still face this problem, so the only issue it seems now is the harddrive, try first to format the harddrive this could fix the problem since most of freezinf issure caused by softwares installed in the hard drive, if you donot want to format it, there is alot of progams can help you check your harddrive and fix the problems. let me know if i can help you in anything else, thanks for joining fixya.com.
Check your processor, hard disk, and memory / graphics against this list.
Recommended minimum hardware requirements for Windows Vista
The following list describes the recommended minimum hardware
requirements for basic functionality of the different editions of Windows
Vista. Actual hardware requirements will vary, depending on system
configuration and on the programs and the features that you install. If you
install Windows Vista over a network, additional hard disk space may be
Windows Vista Home Basic
800-megahertz (MHz) 32-bit (x86) processor or
800-MHz 64-bit (x64) processor
512 megabytes (MB) of system memory Note
On system configurations that use system memory as graphics memory, at
least 448 MB of system memory must be available to the operating system
after some memory is allocated for graphics.
DirectX 9-class graphics card
32 MB of graphics memory
20-gigabyte (GB) hard disk that has 15 GB of free
hard disk space
Internal or external DVD drive
Internet access capability

1-gigahertz (GHz) 32-bit (x86) processor or 1-GHz
64-bit (x64) processor
1 GB of system memory
Windows Aero-capable graphics card
Note This includes a DirectX 9-class graphics card that supports the following:
A WDDM driver
Pixel Shader 2.0 in hardware
32 bits per pixel
128 MB of graphics memory (minimum)
40-GB hard disk that has 15 GB of free hard disk
space (the 15GB of free space provides room for temporary file storage during
the install or upgrade.)
well your board should be able to handle up to 8 gigs of ddr2 sdram. should have four memory ports. the more memory the better. don't know what processor you are using but if it's relatively new then shouldn't be any problems. vista is slow as it is so anything you can do to speed it up will help. oh it is always better not to mix and match brands, speeds etc when it comes to memory. if you expand be sure to purchase what you are already using or buy all new ones. will drastically reduce the potential for problems.
