I used that and spruced up my laptop (it has 512M). See http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm
If I do bump it to 1G I'll just go with Crucial.com
My statistics of my laptop are all listed below:
Machine Name: Lenovo T60 (bought a year ago)
RAM: 502 MB
OS: Windows XP Professional
My need for good performance and portability had been letting down since I bought my laptop just about a year ago. Ever since installing Internet Securities (Norton for 2006 and Trend Micro for 2007), my laptop has been running quite slow. At first, I don't really mind. But the irritation comes when my laptop slowed further, and infections led me to multiple times of reformatting.
I now use AusLogics freeware products since the last couple of days, and I find it useful. Disk Defrag had helped me defragment my laptop faster than the normal Windows one, while RegDefrag did the same thing on registries. I intended to buy BoostSpeed but am unable to find a good retail store in my region that has it.
I also run CCleaner for clearing up some space. But I knew it's not safe as it may delete crucial data.
I would like to know some things:
1) Are there ways to improve my laptop performance other than improving my RAM, defragmenting and removing some startup programs?
2) Is there a safe way in using CCleaner, regarding which I should delete and which I should not?
For information, RAMs under my laptop's company are a few hundred, while other compatible ones are cheaper. I do not know which I should choose.
