  • I would highly recommend upgrading your RAM to a total of 2GB.  You are using the bare minimum amount of RAM and you'll find that Vista will really perform well with 2GB RAM installed.  You can visit

    http://www.crucial.com/ and run the Crucial System Scanner Tool to determine the type of RAM you need.
