    Recently i have bought a new laptop with the following config
    Intel pentium Duo processor T2250, 1.73 Ghz, processor with 1024 MB Ram. It
    is having windwos vista home premium operating sytem.

    I have bought it just a month back. From the day of buying i am really
    facing a problem of slowness in usage. Whenever i just copy some files and
    paste also it is taking more time when compared to windows XP systems. Like
    that all the processes are really slow. Is there any solution for this

  3. You could bump your RAM up to 2GB and see if that helps.

    It is well known that Vista is much slower thant XP. Get use to it.

    according to many vistafan chimps & baboons in here vista is "faster!"
    Now go spank them because they are monkeys.

    like the 3 monkeys "see no flaw in vista" , "hear nothing bad about vista:"
    "never say anything bad about vista" see image:

    you will have your hands full spanking so many monkeys in here.... start at

    That should be a pretty fast laptop. Besides copying files, where do you
    feel it is slow? What antivirus software are you using? If you turn off your
    antivirus, does the performance change?

    Bring up the Task Manager and sort by CPU and see if anything is spinning
    the CPU. Often something like certain versions of Adobe Reader eat 40+% of
    the CPU for no reason other than poor coding and things are fine if you kill
    it or exit the browser it is in. WIsh they would fix the darn thing.

    Hi Jim

    I am using pre installed Norton antivirus only. Just disabling that doesnt
    help. not only copying and pasting..
    even the simple basic tasks takes a lot of time

    like first it will tell.. calculating time remaining..
    then it will put up some mintues and seconds and then will finish up more
    than indiated time...
