Windows Vista Running Very Slow And Freezing

not exactly something you could get for a decent price 5 years ago but it's more or less the standard for new PCs these days) right now with the OEM installation Be sure you've installed all Vista updates and check on the manufacturer's website. Good Luck. That's a piece of cake!

There is no 'war', you just all need to cool off and stop trying to better people. Shows in Notepad++ and MS-Word, so it is not simply a Browser 'thing'. For Vista to run smoothly by itself, typically 2 GB is necessary. 3 GB is ideal to run more efficiently. Windows 10 If yours does, you can improve its performance by enabling Advanced Performance on the drive.Do this by launching Device Manager (click 'Start', right-click 'Computer', select 'Properties' and then choose 'Device manager'

I'm using a One-week old Studio 15 (3 GB of RAM, 256 MB video memory... denys_6_bv says: 6 years ago help..!!!!!!!! Completely unplug, and plug back in, each end just to be sure.Note: Newer interfaces, like HDMI, often simply "push" in and "pull" out, meaning gravity can sometimes eventually work them loose

Reply Peter September 15, 2008 at 8:08 pm I agree that disabling UAC is a bad idea. Chrome Have not found any solution yet and very frustrated. And how do I do this without the disk?? that has nothing to do with Windows updates I dont think Back to top #14 linkot linkot Members 13 posts OFFLINE Local time:07:18 PM Posted 11 February 2015 - 04:12

Reply Hamel July 30, 2009 at 5:50 pm While this is rather true for desktop computers, many, many people on even new laptops, even with fast specs would benefit from disabling Microsoft Beast or not though, Vista is here to stay. I've 25yrs in computer networking, full time; hundreds of customers.

The problem only occurs on systems that are running Windows Vista SP2 or Windows Server 2003 SP2.

All they say is to download their drivers, which I've already done. What's MicroSoft's problem anyway? Right-click then select Uninstall Then follow instructions (as I haven't uninstalled it myself yet!)

See more Vista freezes up all the time Vista freezes all the time need F8 Windows Vista freezes and requires system restore every time Vista freezes up occasionally only once then The computer works fine for a bit then all of a sudden it stops responding, especially when using internet explorer, that seems to clash with everything. I go most days without ever getting a single prompt. Select one of these logs to see each recorded event.
