Hi, I am at my Mums and her computer is really really dreadful. I was wondering if any of you have any advice on how to speed it up a little. It is technically better than my own computer but it runs awfully slow compared to mine. Make: Acer. OS: vista home premium Intel core 2 duo procesor 1.66GHz 667 Mhz 2mb l2 cache intel graphics media acelerator 950 it says 160gb but I think it is 2 70gb partitions with the last 20gb maybe being hidden back up? 1GB ddr2 I feel it should run quite a bit quicker than what it does. any pointers to improve the performance would be greatly appreciated. I have already tidied the desktop and got rid of about 20 icons. I have changed it to 16 bit and reduced the resolution. would moving the files from C: to D: help? as D: has nothing on it?
