This series explains how to speed up your system with a few tips and tricks. Please note that system speed is primarily dependent upon hardware and optimal system maintenance.
Please ensure that your processor and graphics card are compatible with Windows Vista. You can find system requirements for all versions of Windows Vista here:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/system-requirements.aspxPlease note that the requirements given are minimum requirements.
You can ensure a good system performance by fulfilling the following requirements:
- RAM: Windows Vista does work with only 512 MB random access memory (only Windows Vista Home Basic), but daily work with the PC requires 1 GB RAM minimum. 4 GB RAM ensure comfortable working conditions even when loading large video files.
- Hard disk capacity and hard drive maintenance: Make sure your hard drive has enough free capacities. You should also defragment your hard drives regularly.
- Clear out start programs: Speed up the system start-up by loading only those programs you are really using on a daily basis.
Parts 2 and 3 in the series explain how to start Windows Vista faster.
Part 4 shows how to speed up graphics by switching off graphic effects. This tip is directed mainly at users of older PC’s with relatively weak graphics cards and small RAM.
