My computer is a Dell dimension 350, with 64 meg of ram. I have just upgraded from win98 to win2000
I did an fdisk and clean install.
My problem is that I now find win2000 is running very slow. My hd seems to be working very hard running for long periods of time especially on boot up. If I add more ram will that help me to gain the speed I would like. They say that win2000 is suppose to be quicker than win98??
Thanks for your help

i would install more ram myself, if i were you. these days, you need more. otherwise, you're depending on the swap file and the processor, which can suck up precious resources.

Win 2000 runs best with 256MB of Memory is your MB PC-100 or PC-133 what MB are you running is the PageFile Sys set for the correct memory? Check your Memory Settings in the BIOS Utility.Windows 2000 Professional is very Memory intensive try adding more memory.
