I know very little about computers. I have an Athlon 2800 CPU, 1gb memory, 120gb hd, 30gb hd (primary), I am also running windows xp pro. I recently installed the 120gb hd and 512mb of ram (total 1gb now).
My computer is EXTREMELY SLOW on start up, shut down, and using any kind of programs, whether it be opening internet explorer, word....I am really frustrated as I thought it would speed up due to the memory being increased from 512mb to 1bg and the additional hd. Can anyone give me some ideas on what the problem might be?
P.S. I have done a full virus and spyware scan and it has not changed.
Thanks in advance!
