I'm very fond of my little netbook, it does exactly what I bought it for. If I'm on the job and need blueprints , building specs or codes all I need do is highjack someone's interwebs and I'm good. My kid has a phone that has interwebs but it's so freaking small i can't find the keyboard let alone type!astroturf said:WoodButcher and everyone else that has contributed to this topic...
You are making my netbook quake in its rubber nubs
1.8 ghz can still run very good , maybe time to reload the OS , or try out one of the Tiny versions of XP or 7 , that run faster than the full versions , try putting the OS on a hard drive of its own , there are also overclocking methods as well, making sure you have 80 conductor IDE cables also helps, and SATA drives are fasterredfury said:back in the day, I built my PC, and have the exact same case as what started this thread, but modded and painted. The original motherboard died and got replaced, I upgraded the processor, video card ram and HDD's, but its slow as beans with its Barton 2500+ processor. I'm still running an AGP video card, though it's a 6800GT. I need to upgrade soon, but other things are priority, including my new van, and my boat. The old girl still gets me online and does what it's supposed to do.
