TOPIC: system slow

Re: system slow 12 years 8 months ago #14891

You could always look at your virtual memory settings, and of course there is always good old Defrag. I saw an article recently that suggested you should defrag your PC once a week. It caused a great deal of discussion here. The result being some do, and some don't.

same with 3wsparky

is the HDD light almost always on ? do you ever get a system scan at bootup saying that the file system needs to be scanned ?

the problem might be physical with the harddisk, one way to check is defrag the HD. or with processing aspect run msconfig, there might be some strange programs being loaded everytime the pc starts up, use hijackthis also to view if there are spywares infection. in summary: 1) check the physical, the harddisk 2) lastly the programs utilization of the resources. :)

Yeah, it's probably hardware related, you might want to swap out parts with known good ones until you find the bad component. I've even seen the thermal paste on CPUs not properly applied, causing all sorts of crazy system problems! Something to think about looking at.
