With only 4.78 gb free space on your 80 gb hd you are prob having swap file problems. You need to go to Add\Remove programs and uninstall the unwanted and nonused programs you have laying around your system. Then do some basic maintenance on your hd by running Disk Cleanup and Defrag. After all that is done then reboot and see if that helps. If no improvement then we need to take a look at whats auto starting in your system
Lets see what you have in your startup
Please click on
Start>>Run>>Type in msconfig>>>press enter
Now click on Startups
Then uncheck everything and restart.
If system boots correctly and is running smoothly and faster then we have a startup problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.
Post back with the results
Then lets do some testing on memory first
Let's check your memory and make sure there is no issue with it.Donwload memtest86 from the link in my signature below.
There are two different ways you can setup the tests depending on your system.
Floppy drive version you can get the 6th file down
Set the bios to boot from the floppy drive A: first
Cd drive Second
Then the Hard drive C:
For cd iso version get the 2nd file down and burn the ISO file to a cd and then boot it from the cd drive...
if you don't have a burning program that will burn .ISO files get burncdcc in my signature below.
NOTE...do not put a blank cd in until burncdcc opens the tray for you
1. Start BurnCDCC
2. Browse to the ISO file you want to burn on cd/dvd ....in this case its memtest86.iso
3. Select the ISO file
4. click on Start
Make sure the bios is set for the cd drive as the first boot device
Put the cd in the cd drive and then boot your computer.
Run memtest for at least 2 hours
If it starts showing any errors during that time then you will have to replace the memory
If there are no errors after 2 hours press Esc and that will end the tests
We will then try other options
After all options are completed then post results and we will continue if need be
