"Resources" are the key here. If all resources are being used, then the system will slow to a crawl.
Resources include, but are not limited to:
- Video Card
- RAM (memory)
- Hard Drive (and virtual memory)
- Motherboard (different buses that transfer data)
- Network card/connection
MSCONFIG is intended as a troubleshooting tool, not as a Startup Manager. As such you may encounter problems when using MSCONFIG and may not be able to boot your system. I'd recommend using this free startup manager: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...s/Autoruns.mspx
But, in short, running Vista with only 1 gB of RAM is asking for problems (especially if you're not running Home Basic). 2 gB is the bare minimum, with 3 or 4 being the recommended amount.
Here's a link to the specs for the memory on your system (double check it - my eyes aren't that good): http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.asp...l=Aspire%205100
I'd suggest purchasing more RAM as DDR2 is pretty inexpensive at this time. The investment in RAM will pay off in the long run - as Windows programs will demand more RAM as time goes on.
