ok, don't tell me it's my RAM or processor speed. or what could i be missing? so check this out...
- I have 3GB RAM (upgraded from 2GB)
- processor speed is 2.00mMHz
now, i've opened task manager to observe the CPU usage and RAM usage at the times when my computer is slowest...
my ram never went above 50% of usage (meaning i had clean 1.5GB RAM to utilize)
my CPU usage (for both processors) never went above 50% to 80% for more than a few seconds (CPU was never 100% busy for more than 1 or 2 seconds)
PLUS i have like 500MB virtual memory each allocated from 3 partitions of my hard driver (extra 1.5GB memory).
so the question again... why is my computer still slow, even with so much free RAM and less busy CPU??? what could be the reason??? it just suddenly reduces performance after some time. it could be 5mins after i put it on, sometimes 30mins, sometimes an hour, sometimes i doesn't get slow.
i defragment often. i repair my registry often, my antivirus us up to date, my drivers are up to date, my updates are installed, i delete temporary files often, i do everything right and still, my computer gets slow!!!
when the computer overheats, it just does off but never reduces in performance.
so does anyone know the REAL reason why the computer is slow???
