HI

I have a sony vaio notebook with 512 ram, 20gb hdd with oracle and some reporting tools, i upgraded from 256mb to 512 mb ram eventhen the process of booting is very slow. Sometimes when i give a regular SQL statement in oracle it takes atleast 1 minute.

What should i do to make my system faster, when i bought it was fast enough, but now no.

Somebody please help me.

Thanks in advance

Hi, syamsundar

Well I guess the first question to ask is when was the last time you ran chkdsk and defrag.
Also is this connected to a network and if is it possible the network is causing the problem.

Syam... I'm behind CrazyOne on this one, but would also like to suggest a cleanup of your HD before the chkdsk & defrag.

Go through your system & delete your TEMP files, TEMP INTERNET FILES, and any other unnecessary junk that's hogging your storage (ie: cookies suck up a LOT of space).

Follow this up with CrazyOne's suggestion & then be sure to run a good, updated virus checker on the system just for safe measure.  I had a hell of a time cleaning up bogus INF files on my HD (over 25,000 of them) to find out that a virus kept replacing them.  It killed my performance until I killed the bug.

Let us know...
