I know that you can never get enough ram. I have a laptop with Vista home premium, and only 1 gig or ram. When I make a procedure change in a program, it hesitates 1 second, before proceeding. My other laptop with XP, and same amount of ram, and program, does not hesitate. Is this an OS compatible problem with the program, or do I need more ram for the Vista to react faster. Please help, Bob
Does hesitation mean "need more ram"(5 posts)
For Vista to run properly you should have at least 2GB of RAM (3GB is even better). XP is a completely different animal. What you experience is probably a lot of page traffic of the paging file. If you have a fast 2GB USB stick, plug this in and use it as Ready Boost device (Speed up your System in Autoplay). That may improve the response time a little.
Vista is a good system. But it requires proper system resources. At $44 for 2GB of RAM, that should not be a bottleneck. But if you try to haul 2 tons with a halfton truck, you are liable to get some problems.
