Default Windows 7 Slow :(

Right now I've had Windows 7 - 32bit for about 2 or 3 monthes. Before I downloaded this my computer was originally slow but still ran smoothly, it would just run into some lag spikes. However now that I've gotta Windows 7, I have been getting major lag spikes like when I play TO, I try to move in Megaopolis (A town) it would have a huge lag where the TO screen would freeze for atleast 10secs-20secs. Before it would just have little lags but not freezing lag. Also I barely have anything downloaded, I just have the normal setup like MSN, Trickster Online, Google Chrome, DirectX and other softwares needed to run. Not sure if its disk space, a virus, or if I have to go back to my old Windows. Can someone tell me what I need to do? Also I have less then 8.59GB with just common things installed

Open My Computer and right click on an empty space. It's under "Computer:"
I don't understand why dxdiag won't work tho. o_o;

Well it's not your current RAM that went bad. Windows 7 uses up more RAM then windows xp (About 1/3 more). From what I can deduce you need to upgrade your total RAM for your PC to be smooth again. You need to post your specs for us to confirm this.

btw, RAM is cheap if you want to upgrade.

To add to what Henreh said. RAM IS NOT BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE. Make sure you get the right format. DDR3 won't work with a DDR2 motherboard.

Since it's windows 7, you can just type dxdiag in that box after you click start.

GPU(Video Card), CPU and RAM should suffice.

Yea you got it right. 1GB RAM is the minimum RAM requirements for Windows 7 so that explains why your PC seems to be slower now. I suggest you get more RAM for smoother performance.

You can get it online.

Newegg.com - Memory, DDR Memory, SDRAM Memory, Computer Memory, Computer RAM, DDR RAM, Memory Stick, Memory Upgrades

We might need a bit more info to help you get the right RAM for your computer though. As far as I know your PC supports DDR2 RAM.

Though unlikely with your specs, if your computer is using Windows Aero, then switch it to Windows Basic or Windows Classic to ease strain on your hardware.

When you right click on the desktop, it's the personalize option.
