|I think you should be looking at the Drive probably you have a dead spot on the drive or it is heavily fragmented make a good back up of your system. Using a third party backup software “I have very little confidence in Microsoft backup software” Go to |
1 Download Disk Wizard.
2 Remember to make a boot disk, with Disk Wizard.
3 Use Disk Wizard to make mirror image of your drive, if you have a spare hard drive use that. If not you can format your partition and use that. If no partition you have to find another mirror image software that will make image to DVD/CD drive I don’t think Disk Wizard will that. I haven’t tried.
4 Then wipe the hard dive and restore your back up with Disk Wizard.
5 When your system comes back up, go and run defragmenter and if you see if the defragmenter leaves a space and begins storing some files after a section of blank space and then doesn’t clear that blank space after several attempts to defragmenter get a new hard drive and restore your backup image to that either way this procedure will speed up your computer as much as A fresh new boot would however if you have a dead spot on the drive in about a month it will drastically start slowing again maybe sooner depending on how You use your computer. If you download a lot of stuff from the internet and or uninstall a lot you find your computer will slow much quicker than if you just run your normal stuff or just use it to surf the web. There is no better way to speed up any system then the forgoing procedure. Over clocking the processor will not speed up any but oldest and most obsolete of computers because any processor made in the last 10 to 15 years is already much faster then the bus although bus size and speed has improved in a many years it is the processors which have been erroneously been given credit for the increase in speed if the truth be know
You could hypothetically speaking take an old Pentium and put it a new system and you would not be able to tell the difference between 900 MHz and 9 GHz. Because it’s the bus that’s your bottleneck, but they gota sell processors, so they don’t tell you that. Moreover if you overclock your processor all you’re going to do is shorten its life span heat is the enemy of all processors and the reason it took so long to break the 1 gig limit. Hard drive maintenance is the key to speed as long as you have enough memory onboard, again do not overclock your processor if you have a system with any thing newer then an Intel 80586 or made after 1995. A little sarcastic maybe but this issue demands that. Because it is something that should have been, well understood by now.
