Things which make computers go slowly/crash that really shouldn't


#1

Opening the volume control on Windows start bar. Takes fucking (relatively) ages!


#2

how old is your computer m9


#3

On my work laptop:

  • Booting up
  • Joining a Skype call
  • Shutting down
  • Opening more than one IDE at a time.

#4

Internet Explorer crashing for no reason, then Windows trying to figure out why.

On my work computer, obviously, I’m not a pensioner.


#5

*work laptop.

I have no idea. I would estimate I am the fifth employee to be given it.


#6

might be time to request a new one


#7

That’s shiiiiit.

Recently put an SSD and 32 GB of RAM in my work machine and it’s like a new beast.

Last year they upgraded my machine to 8GB of RAM. It’s still running 32-bit Windows 7.

sigh


#10

your spreadsheets must run like a dream!


#11

is itunes still complete shit?


#12

That’s so fucked. I have 64 bit, yeah


#13

But the SSD made most difference.


#14

haha i remember on this old laptop i used to have I would often forget that i had even opened itunes by the time it actually popped up in front of whatever else I was doing.


#15

I’m pretty sure it’s still really terrible, unfortunately I have to use it to get my own tunes onto my ipod for important listening wankery, really wish there was another way.


#16

Windows


#17

At the moment, something I’m developing but I can’t work out why. :scream:


#18

This is guerrilla marketing for Apple isn’t it.


#19

On PC Winamp could do this. Not sure if it still could, though.
