Internet slow after reformat


Recommended Posts

Hello, i have a Compaq s3000nx with an emachines au31 replacement motherboard 448 MB ram 2.17ghz athlon 3200 cpu windows xp sp3.

last night i reformatted, for no real big reason - one partition, and i defragged earlier drive C still no improvement.... anyways...

my internet, since the reformat is noticabley slower. Pages load slower, youtube vidoes slower, downloads slower.

any suggestions, please?

Please provide following details, so that someone may be able to assist you:

  • 1. OS version including 32/64-bit
    2. Installed Security Product(s) including Firewall
    3. MBAM version (current 1.46)
    4. Definition version (current 44966)
    5. Do you use a router to connect to Internet

One of the biggest problems I see so far is you only have 448 MB ram, that is really low for windows XP.

32 bit

Avast free - any firewalls are set to default, i didnt mess with any of that

i no longer have MBAM

I use a router, in a network with one other computer, my cousin's in the other room.

my ram was working just fine for me before the reformat, Fox - i was happy, at least tolerant of the speed i was getting

for example download speeds on an average file from megaupload got up to 1-2mb/s(that was fine with me), now im getting no faster than 200kb/s

please dont suggest i buy anything either.

thanks, Fox

"please dont suggest i buy anything either." - I stated that already, stay on task or GTFO. Besides, that doesn't help me understand why my internet's slower after I reformatted YESTERDAY or has "have more than 448mb of ram for windows xp" been the general consensus for just two days now?

Hi -

First try the usual (even on a reinstall) - Defrag , Disc Cleanup and ckeck on installed items in Control Panel ADD/REMOVE -

(448mb of ram for windows xp) Is this correct or just the reading , when you think it should be more , not forgetting how much is required to run the unit -

(or GTFO , Please NO)

Have you called your ISP to see if there are faults in your area ??

Also have you finished installing ALL windows updates for XP SP -

Thank You -
