old Dell that I just replaced opened applications faster than this!
Asus A8N-SLI Premium motherboard
AMD 64 3800+ dual core processor
2 gigs of RAM
WD Raptor HD
It acts kind of like it might be a memory problem because when the program
opens, the first screen you see is partially transparent. I remember back
in the old days when I didn't have a lot of memory, this would happen, but
now I have two gigs. I've run diagnostics on the memory and it seems to be
working fine, I've also reseated it a couple of times and that didn't make
any difference. I have no viruses and I just optimised my drive.
Any suggestions, or ideas as to what my problem might be?
Re: Programs open slowly
You have a dual core, and you could be using Cool N' Quiet.
