N500/Vista running Slow

2011-03-21, 21:38 PM

I have an N500 runing MS Vista, about a year old. It is running very slowly and sometimes the HDD light is on almost continuously. I have deleted all the utilities that might be running in the background and defragged, without success. I am thinking  that the answer might be an upgrade to windows 7?

Is this a possible cure?

If I go down this route can I use an uphgrade version of W7 and would this leave me with all my existing programs, data etc., or would I need to backup and reload?

have you tried to perform clean windows installation? due to vista is using the disk very much, cleaning temporary files & shodow copies is not enough.

try to perform clean windows installation first. if it doesn't work, come back and we'll try to find another solution.

( ps: backup your data on volume c before the process )
