New Laptop Very Slow

Hi

I have a click here which I've had for a couple of months.

The laptop is extremely slow at start up, and on opening web pages.

The laptop has Vista home installed, is this a general issue with Vista, on my desktop with XP, the pages open in half the time.

I've used several on line spyware / malware scanners, but nothing seems to resolve it.

It's very frustrating waiting for the dam thing and pages to load.

Any help will be appreciated.

TIA.

One gloomy suggestion, the spec. seems acutely short of RAM (512)?

Vista seems to be hungry for rescources and yours seem very marginal.

As I'm not that computer literate, therefore I have no confidence in using the information within that link, but that for your advice.

I used that link, but it was unable to give an accurate report.

Is that right £12.99, have you seen the RRP!!!

  GaT7 21:15 23 Feb 08

Yep, £12.99.

"Is that right £12.99, have you seen the RRP!!!" - that's Play.com for you!

Have purchased from them many times - no problems, except it can take upto 5-7 days to receive the item. G

If that the right spec for my laptop, I'm going to order it now.
