cpu question - August 4, 2011, 08:02 AM

I have an old cpu. when I installed windows 7 my wmp was choppy. That was a easy fix, i just installed VLC player prob solved. Recently My Norton told me that there was an update available. I updated and now my chrome is alerting me that it is using a high amount of memory. I turned off the alerts and still same prob. B4 the update i could watch my netflix in one tab, play fb poker on another and read dcsbn. now my netflix lags and sometimes it crashes. any ideas?

Get a new computer. They are super cheap! Or try uninstalling all the crap you don't need on the computer, do disk check/defrag, uninstall Norton and use Avast (been using it for years and it's free. I'll vouch for it 100 times over), perhaps add more memory/a new graphics card, then you should be good. It may even help to take out the graphics card and clean it and get all the dust out of the computer. I had an old one that was loud. I cleaned it, put a drop of oil on the graphics fan screw, and it ran quiter and somewhat better.

I eventually got a new powerhouse computer though.

AV programs are memory intensive. Also, you could have spy/malware running sucking up computer resources.

1. look at Windows task manager. Sort on the processes tab and look at cpu and memory.
2. whatever is highest is the offending culprit (verify it is a legit program)
3. end the process
4. test again
5. increase memory

If you don't want to buy new hardware, try to disable anything in windows 7 that you don't really need if you are determined to use Windows 7.
What I do on old hardware to make use of it, install some type of linux on it stripped down to only what I want and it will run well.
Best answer though and least amount of effort. Buy a new computer or a new motherboard with cpu and more RAM(for that board) and put your other hardware on it.

Submerge your entire computer in mineral oil. Dust problem solved.

Every new os takes more resources.
Go back to the old OS and it will work the way it use to.
Or try to remove some services that you don't really use to limit the resources it needs. This is nothing new...
