|Hi Conor, |
Install the maximum memory *AND* type, that the maker's manual advises.
I would be surprised if this does not give a considerable improvement in speed.
You advise you have 448mb of ram. This seems little, suggesting it is an old (pentium?) pc. Would think it is more likely you have 640mb. Use control panel to check this.
Memory (particularly old) can be found on ebay at inexpensive prices.
Please advise back on what you decide. As a matter of interest, where are you located? I am in Hammersmith, West London.
Good Luck - Keep us posted.
