I recently upgraded my RAM from 120MB to 632MB running of a 1.20ghz AMD Duron processor. This has significantly increased the performance but only after i ran chkdsk /f. Until this point my system would hang up a lot and it would take far to long to perform simple tasks in XP. (you could imagine what it was like working with apps).
Does anyone know how reliable the system performance utilities in Windows are? I seem to get very high readings in there for all the counters. If that is the case then i can't think what hardware i might need to upgrade, my system is:-
AMD Duron Processor 1.20 Ghz with 632 MB RAM
35GB Hard Disk.
Can anyone recommend how i can make it go better or am i over reacting?
