twocs Posted November 24, 2007 Share Posted November 24, 2007 I want to get my computer to run really smoothly. So I'm thinking there's a bottleneck on my hard drives, both internal and external. How can I get it to go faster? What's better, USB 2.0, Firewire, or SATA, or should I try to get enough flash memory and save the OS on there for a really fast boot? I went to the computer shop, and he told me not to try to use IDE with my notebook computer, but I look inside and I see that the internal drive is SATA. But if I connect an external drive it has to be USB 2.0. That can't be the fast efficient way to get my system to run quickly. It's already 2007, and it still takes around a minute to boot up my computer! (I can boot up faster with hibernate, but after a couple days Vista gets very unstable) By the way, the interface for my notebook is: 1 x VGA port/Mini D-sub 15-pin for external monitor 1 x Headphone-out jack (SPDIF) 1 x Microphone-in jack 1 x RJ11 Modem jack for phone line 1 x RJ45 LAN Jack for LAN insert 5 x USB 2.0 ports, 1x IEEE 1394 port 1 x TV Out (S-Video composite) 1 x Express Card 1 x Infrared Port(SIR-115.2Kbps supported) 1 x DVI Port Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
