Slow running Vintron PC after formatting!!

by Sanguine_about_denouement / March 3, 2010 12:20 PM PST

I have Vintron Pc.
933Mhz processor
Via Mother Board.

It's running slow after I have formatted the C drive and installed Windows XP service Pack 2 on it.
I have not installed any drivers for it.
Is it because of deficiency of drivers.

How would I know which drivers to install as there is not website I reckon for Vintron PC.

Please help me.

That system

That system would be slow with just about any modern OS.

Installing drivers would be a good start, but it's only going to do so much. You still have a system circa 2000.

Also, support for XP SP2 is very near to an end, so for that reason, along with security, you'd be well advised to put SP3 on there, or just go back to whatever OS came with the system.

And XP Just Barely Runs On 128 MB Of RAM

Kick it up as much as it will take on your system.. I'm not sure of the specs but 1 GB would be best IF it will take that much. If not, then give it 512 MB..

And yes, you'll need drivers to make it function correctly.

Hope this helps.
