Hey I just bought a desktop and decided to get a Toshiba laptop with it because we have a wireless router and I thought the laptop would be nifty. But it's so damn slow. It's slower than even my old Windows 98 Gateway pc. I'll let the Dxdiag speak for me. As you can see it has less rhan 512mb of RAM and it's running Vista of all things. The processor is pretty crap too. The dude who sold it to me said I could "take stuff off of it" to speed it up. What sort of stuff could I turn off to make it run anywhere near an acceptable speed; like services, applications, processes. If you guys have a way could you explain it in a bit of detail as I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to this stuff. Many thanks in advance.
