2 GB would probably make a noticeable difference.
What do you have checked in the startup tab of msconfig? Try unchecking everything except antivirus.
Look at the services tab of msconfig. Put a check in "hide all Microsoft services". How many services are left after you do that?
Thankyou very much, Friend.
for your time and suggestion on my problem, thanks.
hmm... i am looking at the msconfig, now.... and there are many applications....
yes, i know the typical statement you get when you tell someone that you have a 1GB RAM !! well, i have got this a lot and i know the requirements these days, thing is i bought this laptop about 3-4 years ago.... and since then it has been going just fine, infact, this laptop had windows vista installed by default, this is a windows vista laptop!! i noted that the laptop was slowing down after like 2 years so i was thinking of changing the windows.well, about more than a year now, i have changed the the windows from vista to seven, and had seen ENORMOUS change in the system..... the laptop was again "new" and running "fast", it is great!
i ofcourse plan to increase the RAM some day, but till the day arrives, i have to go on with this 1GB, right?
so, in this msconfig, these are the ones that open on startup and the services going on, changing this is the only solution to controlling the physical memory usage?
like what can be done in the task manager, eg ending some processes which arent needed.
