Does anyone know of good software or a way to help diagnose system performance problems.
Here’s the scoop/details…
512mb pc133 memory
Nvidia TNT 64mg video card
As soon as I boot up the system and do a system check I have only 30-40% of free resources available (that is with NO programs opened). I have minimized the number of start programs which had some effect (~8%) but still awful performance. Windows manages my virtual memory.
The problem begins to show itself once I open up 3-4 windows at once.
Anyone have any ideas? [/B]
Well try this, goto start then run then type msconfig then goto startup and see what is running in there??? is there alot of programs there? if not i would recommend u format ya pc and CLEAN install windows 98/me or what ever os u are using and that should FOR SURE fix it
P.S. i usually have between 88-92 percent of system resources when i used to use windows 98/ME
all u need to do to CLEAN INSTALL windows 98/me is make a windows startup disk, then reboot ya pc with it in floppy drive then when menu pops up, all u do is select start pc with cd-rom support after it loads some stuff all u have to do is have your windows 98/me cd-rom in ya primary cd-rom/dvd-rom drive and type FORMAT /Q C: once the A:\ prompt comes up on screen, then answer Y to the following questions it asks you.
NOTE: once you do FORMAT /Q C: ALL YOUR DATA WILL BE PERMANENTLY ERASED!!! so backup you data to a cd-rw drive before you try this then after it finishes format type SETUP from the a:\ then all u have to do is follow on screen windows setup instructions to get windows back up and running
if u need more help contact me on aol instant messenger @ FullFledgedCrip
