Having problems with your Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook ?

Slow - likes to use drive which slows things down.

\015 Hi!\015\012\015\012I just bought a refurbished aspire, - I like it alot, but it likes to access it's solid state hard drive alot, which seems to slow things down quite a bit - are there any suggestions on settings that I can change so everything is more ram dependant, or ways to make things faster? Thanks!\015

In general I've found this article to offer reliable guidance. Here's a similar version from MS for xp. And helpful sites from MS for xp here and for vista here.
\015\012Stay away from registry cleaners. They won't increase the speed, and do more harm than good. See here.
\015\012Find an AV or Internet Security suite (if you must) that is light on it's use of system resources. Some of these are hogs, and there's nothing windows can do to be quick under their burdern. See AV comparatives performance tests.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Is this windows XP. Try to go to winguides.com (or pctools) Modify the registry. Unfortunately, to compute directly into RAM, you'd need at least 100 GB.

You can turn off the graphics, change it to classic mode, modify the shutdown time through the registry, go into the BIOS and optimize it.

Increase the amount of RAM and change the swapfile, but don't let windows control it. 1.5 times the amount of RAM.
