Performance

Client has a compaq persario pentium class. I increased memory from 64k to 256k. Her system resources shows 53%. What can contribute to low resources besides available memory?

Most likely have programs running in the backround, press contro\alt\delete at the same time see whats running to stop these from stating at startuo if you have a win98machine handy copy msconfig to a disk the file can be found in C:windows\system and you that to stop programs from automaticly stating works like a charm

Among other things:

L1 and L2 cache (not configurable in most cases). HD cache as managed in one of those darn Control Panels, System I think, under "Performance".

What do PERFMON and TASK MANAGER say about it?

a way to correct so many programs running in the background is to go to msconfig - go to start up and take out everything that is not needed- let it open up only what you select for it to open-
also check autoexec.bat and config.sys and see what applications and drivers they are trying to open.
It will prompt you to reboot- then go to my computer ( right click) properties- and see the new system free %
any questions feel free to email me-
