The good news is this is not abnormal for Vista and this machine. You can help it with that added RAM and help it even more if you don't reboot but resume from hibernation.
There is no sign any fix for this is planned.
Hi guys, My wife's Acer laptop is causing her a lot of grief as it takes ages to get going once it has started up. It is operating on Windows Vista Business edtition, 160gb hard drive and 1gb RAM.(this is about to change as I have just ordered another 2gb to made it up to 3gb)
Once the laptop has started up and you click to log on to the internet, it sometimes "freezes" or just take about two/three minutes to open it up. Then everything is slow, not just the internet, but when you want to open a folder on the laptop. If you check the task manager, nothing is over working as the items are working at around 8%-10% max. If you leave the laptop for about ten minutes or more, and then come back to it, it seems to get faster and then you can open folders and the internet without too much of a delay. This was new in March of this year.
Any help or advice would be appreciated
