Having problems with your Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook ?

Frustratingly slow 256 mb ram


Answers :

Possible problem: Not enough memory. That laptop comes with 512RAM, so I don't know why yours has 256, that is not enough memory if you are running windows.
\015\012Solution: Add more memory. The max ram for that laptop is 1MB. Visit http://www.memoryx.com/ and order two 512MB memory sticks.

\015\012Possible problem: You have some uninvited spyware running in the background. If your machine was fast one day and slow the next this is probably the problem.
\015\012Solution: Install and run an anti-spyware program. I like Adaware. They have a free version and finds (and fixes) stuff 90% of the time. www.lavasoft.com

You should bumb your memory from 256 to at least 512, and better yet if at 1024.
