Hardware

Question

My computer slows down horribly after only a minute or two of inactivity. I have to reboot frequently in order to download programs or bring up the internet or email.

I have also had many "system resources low" warning messages, like down to 68%. Although the "pie charts" say that 80-90% of my memory or something is free.

I have deleted programs, have only the bare minimum in my startup tray.

I did do a restore a while back. Dont know if that means anything.

Seriously, only one - two minutes of not touching my computer and I am unable to do anything.

Thank you for your help. Cindy

Your ocmputer seems to be locking and freezing.

If you are not taking thatmuch space than try to defragment your harddrive.

Right click on the blue area of the screen and click on defragment.

OK the process and it will probably take about an hour, considering you alot of space availlable.

This will reorganize your data in the harddrive and the performance will improve.

Double check all the software in the system.

Observe any error messages, that also can put a stall on the system.

Look for any cliches and fix them.
