I was wondering if anybody could help? My Hp DV5046ea laptop has been running very slowly since Christmas. Very suddenly, almost overnight, it's speed greatly reduced. Not that it was super quick in the first place, I have only 1.2Gb of Ram; but non-the-less it has become painfully slow. It runs Windows XP.
If anybody could help me to speed up my laptop, that would be fantastic. I am looking to procure a new(ish) one ASAP, but as funds are tight, any way in which I could improve the speed of this HP laptop would be of great help.
The hardware that I know of is such: 1.2gb Ram, 93Gb Harddrive (partitioned [c]19.5 [d] 73.5 - I did compress the 'c' drive last week - not sure whether that was a good move or not?! - in an attempt to free up space.
Right, for fear of confusing people further, I'll leave it there for now. Many thanks in advance to any readers & to those who may be able to help.
