Laggy PC

Specs: Windows XP, 512 to 756
hello guys, need your help again...
my pc was working fine until i thought of upgrading my ram cause i wasn't satisfied with the performance....(512 MB DDR2)
so, i temporarily got one 256MB and placed it in...
after that, i noticed some change in the speed and everything was working well
now my friend asked me for that 256 MB ram and i removed it.....
That's where the problem comes in..
PC was so damn slow.....
like it was working on a 100mb ram.... :(
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..

May be u disturb the heatsink when u removed the memory. Check CPU temp in BIOS. Ddr2 memory are cheap get atleast 2gb.

U can save the little money u get from your parents. At 13 i bought my first console for 20 bucks(6 or 7 months of savings).

Try resetting defaults in BIOS and see if that helps.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I used to have 512 MB of RAM (up to 1.5 GB now) and my computer was actually fast. For now defragment your hard drive and see if that helps. Also close any other applications that you are using. If you want to increase the boot-up time open msconfig (Start>Run...> type: msconfig> click the startup tab) and disable any unnecessary startup items. Be careful not to disable your anti-virus though.
