I believed my slow computer was a result of being consistently low on virtual memory but I did increase it w/no change in time to pull up my pages. It has gotten much worse. Support is only confusing me into a deeper hole of despair. Any more suggestions?
They say: Try to avoid having a pagefile on the same drive as the system files. Avoid putting a pagefile on a fault-tolerant drive, such as a mirrored volume or a RAID-5 volume. Pagefiles do not need fault-tolerance, and some fault-tolerant systems are slow because they write data to multiple locations. Do not place multiple pagefiles on different partitions on the same physical disk drive.
My brain cannot comprehend this *censored*.
Multiple drives? What's that mean? I thought C was it. Just one? Do I have more w/an additional memory card & where do I find it? I added another memory card last year but what I don't know is is that another separate file area to place documents/files, etc?
A page file is what? Like 'My pictures' or 'My Music' under 'My documents' or what Im saving in it? I have a lot in my pictures, if I split it up into another file also under 'My Documents' would that make a difference? Or do I HAVETO save it to 'removable' disk?
I don't recall creating a mirrored volume. I don't think I have a RAID either. I can't check into my fav sites
w/o using up an entire evening so if anyone has any suggestions, I'll do anything to fix this. I even considered way way expensive satelite DSL from a new co that thinks they can provide it here. But that doesn't fix my problem. The puter is slow for a reason. It really sucks when it takes minutes for each & every
page to load each
