Virtual memory??


well, i have a problem.

I had a 200 mhz Pentium mmx processor computer with 32 Mb of RAM.

And now i have a 466 Mhz intel celeron processor with 128 mb of RAM.

My problem it's that when compare my computer's speed with the old one i realiza that the old one was faster on applications than this one. And when i open 2 programs at the same time it slows up very much.

And my friend has a 500 mhz pentium 3 and the perfomance is better than mine.

I think it's virtual memory or something, do i have to defragmentate the hard drive?

And Flash animations and games run up pretty slow, very slow. And thse games don't need much speed i think. The video card has 16 MB and i think it's good, and i saw that in windows 2000 you can choose if you want o use virtual memory on applications or other functions , is there a way to do that in windows 98?

Please answer me, thank you.

Virtual memory has to do with the space on the hard drive you could defrag the hard drive to make it work faster for sure rember that this will take awhile but it will help.

after you defrag you should go to and get a crital updates for the 98 OS.

this will help you as well
