I have bought Lenovo K200 which comes with a SIS motherboard, 1GB RAM, 160GB harddisk and the speed is 2.0GhZ(DOS). I installed WINDOWS VISTA ULTIMATE. I'm using AVIRA premium edition as the antivirus. When I have used the operating system for long.. say.. I have installed VISTA about 2 weeks ago, and have used ADOBE PHOTSHOP cs4 for a long time, then it takes a lot of time to reboot.
When such issues fire up, I format my PC and everything seems fine, but I've done that more than 3 times and I'm tired of reformatting it everytime such issues comes up. I have tried to install windows xp and windows 7 but the motherboard driver which comes along with it doesn't have sound when tried with XP and windows 7. I have installed realtek sound by downloading their software. That doesn't help either. Can you please help with me how to speed up my vista as I've to stick with this for sometime.
And FYI: I'm running out of the warranty for the computer now as it is kind of more than 1 year now..and as the system was a DOS when the item was purchased, LENOVO phone support can't help much. I'll be buying a new MOBO and replace it as soon as this system warranty(free support) is running out.
