GF has a Sony Vaio laptop, not particularly old or anything (maybe 18 months) but lately it has been slowing up. Taking longer to start, browser slower etc.
Can anyone provide a list of things i could do to tune up it?
I have gone through the following
- Gotten rid of any unwanted installed programs.
- Gotten rid of a lot of photos/files etc on her C drive.
- De fragmented the hard drive.
- Installed google chrome at she is now using that.
Are there any other steps i can carry out to tune this up?
Any help appreciated.. i dont think it needs to be fixed/looked at, just would like a step in the right direction to make sure she is getting the most out of it.
Follow this guide for msconfig
Cheers Caff.. will have a look at that later on.
Does it have VAIO Assist / VAIO Care software? Try running that.
Would CC Cleaner be any good in this situation?
sure fire way of speeding her up: see what sort of ram is needed and installable and buy one or 2gbs for it. shouldn cost more than 40 to speed it up to 'like new'.
