Comp is Slow. Any Way Possible for Me to Use Sony Vegas?

Like the movie...rate it now

Yes, my laptop is very slow… I can run things like Photoshop and Media Player, but the last time I tried to use Vegas it didn’t work too well.

So, is there any way in the world that I could use it without it stalling or freezing up? Any backdoor tricks that’ll help it? A way to make my laptop run programs faster? I really wanna start video making again. 🙁




If your virus/spyware free, there are  a couple things you can do get your computer working faster. If you using your computer for normal stuff and not gaming. You don’t always need more RAM you just need to perform a few maintenance task.

First, if you haven’t cleaned your registry in a while. This is necessary. Your registry holds all the information regarding updates, installs, un-installs etc. Each one of those events produces a key. That key needs your PC’s resources and free space. So, if you clean your registry, you make more resources available for speed. Do a registry scan if you got more than 20 errors you should clean it.

What is the best registry cleaner?

2. Clear your Windows cache files, this is your temporary file. It can grow up to a large volume and stop your computer from using RAM properly. In a sense slow it down by preventing it from using free space.Here is how:

1. Quit Internet Explorer, Firefox, or any other web browser
2. Click Start, click “Control Panel”, and then double-click “Internet Options”.
3. On the General tab, click “Delete Files” under Temporary Internet Files.
4. In the Delete Files dialog box, click to select the “Delete all offline content” check box , and then click OK.
5. Click OK.

3. Manage your startups. Your excess CPU usage is due to too many programs running in the background. You can cut these to barebones by alter your msconfig. Here is how:

1. Open your Start menu.
2. Click Run
3. In the command screen type “msconfig.exe”
4. In the “system configuration utility”,click either “service” or “startup” tab
5. Uncheck all programs that your are no longer using.
6. Click “OK”

  1. There are a number of ways to speed up your computer, the easiest are disc defragmenting and inserting a flash drive as RAM. To defragment, right click on the disc drive then select properties > tools > defragment now. When you insert a flash drive, Vista will often ask whether you would like to use it to speed up your computer, select yes and it should work. Getting rid of useless programs and reducing the number of programs running in the background would be even more helpful, but if you don’t know what you are doing you could damage your computer.
