I have been really unhappy with the performance of my computer. I have ran all the spyware tests and registry diagnostics while working with members in the virus and nasties forumn. my computer is clean.
It would take 16 to 20 1000's to open a simple application such as IE or outlook. I had 256ram and upgrade to 768mb ram. It will now open up in 5- 8 seconds.
My much older laptop(5 yrs) is considerably faster than my Dell and it only has 1 ghz processor, but it is a AMD athalon. I was talking with tech support at dell and they said the celeron in my computer is just a cheap piece of tinfoil can't hold a candle to the athalon.
can i upgrade/downgrade my dell to 1-2ghz amd? or what would you recommend.
I do not work with video, graphics,or gaming. I just run a lot of simple applications like excel, word, ACT, winfax, etc. and I like to multi task have a lot open cut and pasting etc, but my computer is so slow it just pisses me off. if you google "dell dimension 2400 slow" you will see many user reviews on how crappy the computer is.
