Hey ppl, Im sure theres alot of pc pros out there so im gonna tell you my situation. im using a compaq presario 1688 running windows ME and my junk is being slow lately. i had it fast once but now its starting to act up on me. please flood me with ways to speed it up, little tips, other than the system tools lol that everyone should know about. keep in mind that my cdrom drive is burned out for some reason so discs will not read, so i need alternatives if available. Thanks a million!!
