Speeding up my laptop
by ComputerWizard16 - 5/29/11 9:44 AM
I currently have a Dell Studio XPS 16 (Intel Core 2 Duo Processo, 2.8GHz, 1080p HD screen, 4GB memory, 500GB hard drive and Blu Ray Drive with a 512MB graphics card.
However, it takes ages to load up and freezes a lot. I do a lot of multi tasking. It struggles to play 1080p video - not an issue with the internet as other computers run fine on the same network. I have pretty much cleared my whole hard drive of files and there is barely anything there. I have MS Office Home & Student 2007 installed and PowerDVD. I was thinking of getting Adobe Photoshop & Premiere Elements but I don't think it would run smoothly! I have paid quite a lot of money for this laptop (1500 pounds roughly) and want to use it to its full potential. Any advice on getting it faster?
