I've inherited a laptop from the Pre-Cambrian era last week. My grandfather deemed it to be too slow for him and he's since upgraded to a nice shiny new one. He's 88 and no longer lives the fast life. Carbon-dating indicates that this is an old-ass HP Compaq NC6220, it's running WinXP Professional, obviously an ancient Assyrian operating system. I'll stop. It's fucking old and slow. Damn thing takes like five minutes to boot up fully and there's probably 5-10 seconds of lag between when I click something and when the computer actually responds. Streaming video is the most infuriatingly stuttery thing ever (don't even think about using this as a faptop). Does anybody know how to get an old computer like this working at least semi-quickly again? I'm looking some things up on my own and I don't really care if this laptop ends up totally dead, my phone is a million times faster than this thing and I have an Acer tablet to satisfy my mobile needs.
