Windows 7: Slow Computer

28 Jan 2015   #11

Windows 7 - Home Edition - Build 7601x8086

Jeepers they added a lot to the list, thanks appreciate it.

Solution: Wasn't a memory usage issue, the extra memory was unneeded as the hard drive was being heavily taxed by chrome. The more tabs open the more read/writes to the session memory are performed. Either migrate to another browser, or as Jimbo mentioned you can upgrade to a better HDD or even an SSD something that can take the abuse. While knowing it will deplete lifespan.

Secondary work around as I am not touching the HDD not worth my time, installed "The great suspender and since I have been on here now for 3 hours unfortunately I can fortunately say it works incredibly well. Decreases memory usage, I/O activity. Tabs suspend automatically in 5 minutes, and if you click them reload pretty fast even with key entries if you made any so that's good. Has whitelist options to avoid closing important tabs.

yep agree with Jimbo an SSD would be the go and don't worry too much about what you hear about decreasing SSD life by over doing it I think you would need to thrash it with a bit stick to do that. My current laptop SSD has I think a very long warranty period - approx. ten years at an average 40GB rad write per day

Computer gets really slow out of nowhere.
I have an old, crappy Vaio that I installed a free copy of Windows 7 Pro, 32 bit on. It has a 1.6GHz (single core) processor so it can't really handle a lot but does manage pretty well.
