Computer too slow - maybe a better way to configure win98se, or access more memory ???
Posted on 2004-04-09
Hi. My computer has slowed to the point of complete frustration
Here's what I have already tried with no significant improvement:
- ctl+alt+delete and remove everything except explorer and systray
- disabling or closing everything except bare minimum in the systray
- Kicking it.
I haven't installed any memory-hogging software that I'm aware of.
Following is machine specs:
Microsoft Windows 98 4.10.2222 A
Upgrade using Full OEM CD /T:C:\WININST0.400 /SrcDir=D:\WIN98 /IZ /IS /IQ /IT /II /NR /II /C /U:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
IE 5 5.50.4807.2300
On "CLIVQ" as "Default"
Dell Computer Corporation
GenuineIntel x86 Family 6 Model 8 Stepping 1
75% system resources free
Windows-managed swap file on drive C (13267MB free)
Available space on drive C: 13267MB of 26092MB (FAT32)
DEVICE=C:\CDROM\ATAPI_CD.SYS /D:MSCD001 /PIO
Just as a side note: I realize a new machine would probably be a great solution,
but trying to avoid that just yet...
If you need any more info just ask.. Thanks.
