Taking forever to get around with my new computer
Posted on 2004-09-14
I'm a newbie, so I hope I'm in the right place. Anyway, for refresheres, I have an hp a650y using Windows XP SP-2 and IE 6xpsp_sp-2. For the first time, I'm using a wireless router--and you guys helped considerably with my previous question--now I can't understand why my computer which is a powerful machine and new goes so slow between web pages and even local application. It's as if my RAM's all used or short, and I have 1GB of RAM. (How would I confirm What my RAM is?) So point here is why is my system working so slow? I was using an Accelerater, but a friend said it was unnecessary because of Windows XP has built in things to speed it up. Yet this system is slow, and as slow on the network. Can anyone advise?
P.S. If I'm in the wrong forum, please direct me.
