Slow browsing/flash video etc. on Mini/311

August 26, 2011 at 09:05:13
Specs: Windows 7, Intel Atom N270 1.60 GHz/2 GB
This is not going anywhere. My HP Mini/311c with NVIDIA ION and 2 GB of RAM doesn't seem to be able to work fast enough to run basic Win 7 tasks.

for example:

- switching tabs in firefox is slower than on my six year old desktop computer with half the RAM.
- watching Youtube/other video sites is very choppy.

i have the latest nvidia drivers and the latest directx and flash player. suggestions? from the start on this notebook i have used as light software as possible, and have only Avast antivirus and Pidgin messenger running.

remove avast and install MSSE, it might help, check your running process's see whats taking up the memory and cpu time, has it always been like this?
close any process' you dont need.
you can always try running with a usb linux boot, might be a lot faster.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
