Hi guys and gals,
It's my first time here as I'm having lots of speed issues with my old PC. I will be (hopefully) getting a new one for Xmas from hubby but this PC is so painfully slow it's been an ordeal browsing for new PC's online today! It was bought either 2000 or 2001 but it's actually served my needs perfectly and I wouldn't even bother considering getting a new one if this wasn't getting so bad.
Basically I would like to know what my options are for a temporary measure to stop my PC going snail like. I wondered if updating the drivers for my AMD processor may help as in the Sys Prop they are dated as 2001???
I have the specs from Win XP's utitlity which I shall type below:
System model: MS-6316
Bios Version: American Megatrends Inc. A6316MS V1.0 B7 Time Computer Sys.
RAM: 256.25 MB (I know it's very slow).
Processor: AMD Athlon.
Version: x86 Family 6 Model 2 Stepping 1.
Speed: 698 Mhz (again I know it's a low speed!
Hard disk: 27GB free space 4.44 GB.
Running Win XP Pro.
Now I had a look in the syst properties to see what drivers were under AMD and all I could find were these....
AMD-751 Processor to AGP Controller (not sure what this is?).
Driver Date: 07/01/2001 from MS.
AMD-756 Power Management Controller - no drivers installed.
Is there anything I can do to help until I get a new PC? Or am I doomed to going slow till then?
Thank you in advance for any help offered /smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />
