Laptop runs slow.
Hey I just got this old laptop, it's a Hitachi Visionbook Pro 7775. It has 64mb of ram (upgraded from the original 32mb). The original OS was Windows 95 but when I got it, it came with nothing. I've tried booting every different OS on there from 95, 98, 2000, and even XP and the computer still runs slow as hell. Everything is very choppy and even notepad or the start menu takes about 30 seconds to come up. The mouse doesn't even run smoothly either. I realize yes, the thing is very old. But it should still run smoothly if nothing is on there, it's not like im installing new programs or trying to do anything top of the line with it. I'm just trying to run notepad, view a few pictures, and use Internet Explorer. Any way I can speed this thing up a little bit? If needed to know it does have a 300mghz Pentium II processor and a 3.5gb hard drive with CDROM. Help would be greatly appreciated. I gotta hand it to you guys, this forum kicks *** and all of my questions have been answered so far.
