How can I make my PC faster? Help
My aging PC has slowed to a crawl lately and i'm wondering if theres anything i can do or add to it to make it a bit quicker
Its a Tower case with an AMD Duron 1.79ghz processor, 512mb Ram, 40 gb HD + a 60gb usb drive. The dvd doesnt work, theres a fan on the processor and what looks like an uprated fan in the case.
Running XP home, service pack 3. Only use it for net, msn and photo's/video. Very little else.
Would adding some ram make it better? Does anyone have any bits laying around that would help me.
Fed up of it crawling along when on the net. Its ok if I have 1 task open, but if I start to browse multiple windows its painful. The speedtests on the internet connection come up ok so its not that, just the computing power I think.
If i'm on MSN and the net at the same time, it usually crashes.
Anyone got any suggestions (enter mr Szynal) or bits laying around that I could purchase/swap for parts?
