Definitly add more ram, realize you cannot use both DDR and DDR2, only one of them.
When you’ve installed a second HDD, move the PF to that drive, and disable it on the boot drive, that will help quite a bit.
DON’T BOTHER WITH RAID, raid is only good for people running servers, its been proven to be a total waste of resorces for 99 percent of users. Only in benchmarks are there improvments not in the real world. Same thing for NCQ, its only good for servers and actually slows down regular computers.
If your not using nero index services you can shut that off, go to run, type services.msc look down the list for neroindexservices or somthing like that double click it, stop the service, and disable it. There are a whole bunch of other services that can be disabled, but don’t go crazy, like remoteregistry can be disabled. I shutdown quite a bit of them but I don’t have a list for you.[/QUOTE]
Yea I know I can only add one type, which is why I’m limited to 1.5GB (with the ram I currently have). I only have 1 1GB stick and the rest are all 512MB sticks, and its only got 2 ddr slots. I already have 3 drives in that computer so moving the page file shouldn’t be a problem.
I have had really bad luck when stopping services and or editing the registry so they never start, but seeing that I need to reinstall most of the programs that are on it, I might try again. I just wish there was an easy way to have the programs run only when you need them and not all the time. There are some things that I only need occasionally but I do need. My scanner software is one example (I know its a resource hog). I’ll probably google to find ways to reduce running processes this time. As its a clean install, if I mess it up I can just do it again. I’ll probably even do an image to make it faster.
Fyi I do defrag but not near as often as I should (I’m currently using system mechanic 6 with the firewall and antivirus disabled to defrag and do other optimizations).
