Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1521 Notebook ?

COMP SLOW ALL THE SUDDEN!

\015 I have a Dell Inspiron 1521. I got a new HDD for it i installed vista on it...like 3minutes ago it was running fast now all of the sudden it's slow. I open up task manager and in the performance tab it shows only 621MB on my physical memory usage history. I have no idea why it's like that or what it means I have 2 gigs of RAM. Do I need new RAM then? Or reformat my HDD again, cause I was told to reformat once more so my comp can recognize it better or w/e.\015

Answers :

I am no expert at vista yet but I can tell you that 2 gigs of RAM is not enough. You can disale some features in Vista, but it is a memory hog and you should probably be running about 4 gigs Ram.

System board Hello and thank you for your input. I own a Toshiba Satellite P25-S256 series lap top. My OS stars really slow, it takes about 20 for the comp to boot and load all appications.

Gaming Woes Hi, I play games like Halo, Doom 3, and PSOBB but there are times when, while I'm playing the game suddenly slows down- BADLY, even at times to an extent of <2fps. But the thing is, after awhile of painfully slow gameplay everything returns to normal- only to happen again awhile later. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone can tell me why this is happening and/or how to fix it. My specs: Windows XP SP3; Intel Pentium M 1.8GHz; 1GB RAM; ATI Mobility Radeon 9000.
