57 Vista Run Commands
I have been trying and trying different
things to Speed up Windows XP boot times and nothing seems to work. Have any
new tips on the subject?
A. To speed up
Windows XP boot times you can use the system.ini file.
You can add the following lines under the [386Enh] within system.ini.
START, Run and then enter
msconfig. This opens the System Configuration Utility.
2. Click on the SYSTEM.INI tab.
3. Click on the + next to [386Enh].
4. Highlight [386Enh] by clicking on it once.
5. Click on the NEW button on the right side.
6. In the new empty box enter LocalLoadHigh=1
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 and enter DMABufferSize=64
Simply save your system.ini file and then close and reboot and enjoy the
* LocalLoadHigh=1 - This setting lets the
operating system know to load all info needed for your programs into upper
memory by default, and it will free up the maximum amount of conventional memory
possible (the first 640K).
* DMABufferSize=64 - This setting tells your PC to leave as much memory
available for DMA data transfers as possible, this will not only speed up your
computer boot process but will have a good effect on overall system speed too!
Let me know if you need anything else.
