yep...that's what I wanted...
how much RAM do you have installed....
the ATI Radeon Xpress 1100graphics card only has 128 MB dedicated memory. The card can tap into an additional 384 MB from shared system memory, for a total of 512 MB...this may be the problem...
go to START
...type in MSCONFIG
...then click on OK
or press ENTER
click on START UP TAB
everything EXCEPT your AV and firewall
...if its a laptop you have to be careful about what you uncheck or your touch pad and wireless and things like that will not function for you..
google each start up item to decide if you need it to load with windows...unchecking them does not remove them ..they are still available to use...NOTE...TURNING OFF INDEXING IS FOR XP ONLY...DO NOT DO THIS IF YOUR USING VISTA...
the next thing we are going to do is turn off indexing ....its a resource hog and if you aren't searching for things on your computer 10 times a day it will only slow down your system....
click on start.
click on C: drive
...on the general tab..uncheck
...allow indexing on this drive....if you do not have the box on your system...
...type in SERVICES.MSC
...scroll down until you find INDEXING SERVICE...click on it and in the general tab set it to DISABLED
To clean your temp folder, recycle bin, index.dat etc..please download this free tool...CCleanerDon't install any Toolbars
, or other programs, should it ask you...Just
uncheck the option of installing the Yahoo toolbar....if you get
the slim version it does not have the toolbar
that's the one I recommend...
It will put a shortcut on your Desktop.
Click on CCleaner to start it....
Before first use...
"Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"
The rest of the standard settings are fine...
Then click "Run Cleaner"DO NOT USE ANY OF THE OTHER TOOLS...RUNNING THEM MAY CAUSE OTHER PROBLEMS
