My h/w vendor suggests me to format all the partitions and then reinstall windows which I don't think is correct.
Please help me running my machine fast. I have ACER quad core 8300 with 4 GB RAM and C partition is of 349 GB.
You have not specified if you have Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit or 64-Bit, and do you have all your hardware drivers
installed with the latest versions?
Also, have you set your page file to System Managed, or Custom? I've seen on many occasions that setting the page file to a custom setting can cause performance degradation.
If your drivers are up-to-date, then run a complete disk check:
- right-click C:, select Properties
- Click Tools tab
- Uner Error Checking click Check Now
- Make sure Both options are selected
A bad hard disk can also cause slow performance.
