slow ass computer? try this and get back to me

so its easy to get your pc to start dragging-ass, (it’s the internet I swear –shh) so windows 7 has this feature to help add easy add-on performance at like the cost of a flash drive-?

nothing hella new, but always forget to try and test if there’s any performance improvement. here’s the info from the help doc on a win 7 machine:

 

Speed up your computer with ReadyBoost

ReadyBoost can speed up your computer by using storage space on most USB flash drives and flash memory cards. When you plug a ReadyBoost-compatible storage device into your computer, the AutoPlay dialog box gives you the option to use ReadyBoost. If you select this option, you can choose how much memory on the device to use for this purpose.

Turn ReadyBoost on or off for a storage device

ReadyBoost can speed up your computer by using storage space on most USB flash drives and flash memory cards.

  1. Plug a flash drive or flash memory card into your computer.

  2. In the Autoplay dialog box, under General options, click Speed up my system.

  3. In the Properties dialog box, click the ReadyBoost tab, and then do one of the following:

    • To turn ReadyBoost off, click Do not use this device.

    • To use the maximum available space on the flash drive or memory card for ReadyBoost, click Dedicate this device to ReadyBoost. Windows will leave any files already stored on the device, but it’ll use the rest to boost your system speed.

    • To use less than the maximum available space on the device for ReadyBoost, click Use this device, and then move the slider to choose the amount of available space on the device you want to use.

  4. Click OK.

Move the slider to choose how much space you want to designate for boosting your system speed.

For ReadyBoost to effectively speed up your computer, the flash drive or memory card should have at least 1 gigabyte (GB) of available space. If your drive or card doesn’t have enough available space for ReadyBoost, you’ll see a message telling you to free some space on it. For best results, use a flash drive or flash memory card with at least double the amount of available space as the amount of memory (RAM) in your computer.
