Speeding up wvista


Q

Quick Parts

Hi.

I have 2 questions.
1. Is it safe to enable write caching on disk using a notebook? Or it could
somohow demage the HD?
2. Is it possible to measure how much memory improvements i get by using a
2gb flash drive as readyboost?
3. I've heard about a free downgrade to windows xp, is that true?

I've heard many people insatisfied with windows vista. Many of them really
dont have a good machine. With my machine i have a 4,5 WEI which I consider
is a good grade and eventhough i think xp is a lot faster thans vista....is
this performance normal? I mean, XP turns on and off in a sec or 2 while
vista takes like 2-3 mins....Will SP1 fix this or we will have to just accept
it?

I have a dell notebook/ inspiron 1520/ intel core 2 duo/ 2gb RAM/ 1.5 ghz /
nvidia geforce 8600m gt

tks
