Would like some help with what I'm sure is a common problem. I own a 3-4 year old Compaq Presario 4704. It has become increasingly slow lately and I think I have done about all I can do from the standpoint of deleting files or programs that I do not use. I am a self-taught user and know just enough to be dangerous...bear with me, please.
The computer has a Pentium processor (Pentium 1?), 16.0 MB RAM, and I checked the disk and it says it has/had 1.49GB of space with only 136 MB free. I expect that to be the main source of my problems.
What avenues or courses of action might I pursue to increase its speed? Whatever I do, I want it to be cost effective.
Thanks in advance.
