sheesh! you got 1 gig of ram, you shouldn't have to worry over performance man! :tazz: anyways, you could try loading 'optimized defaults' in bios.

IF your performace seems slow the first thing to check for is malware. Then check to make sure you are up to date on patches, etc. then check that drivers are all current. Also check your directx. double check the device manager and look for any yellow flags... check to see if you have alot of unneeded programs starting up in the background and finally do a chkdsk/defrag to check the drive out.

If you describe the problem in more detail we will be able to get you more help, and i would set the optimised defsults in bios, if its still sluggish with that then the problem is more serious than a few settings i would imagaine.
