If I might direct you to a tutorial on RAM speeds done by PCHF's own Sagebrushfire....
Hi I don't understand why this thread doesn't get more reply's. Here's a tip for all you people that think you have to mess around in the registry;which I firmly discourage, but if you have to.
Backing up the Windows 7 Registry usually takes less than 10 minutes
Execute regedit to start Registry Editor.
See How To Open Registry Editor if you need help doing that.
Navigate to the very top of the registry key branches until you reach Computer.
Highlight Computer by clicking on it once.
From the Registry Editor menu, choose File and then Export....
In the Export Registry File window that appears, choose a location to save the registry backup file to.
Note: I usually recommend choosing the Desktop or the Documents folder. Both are easy to access if you run into problems later and need to use the file to restore registry data.
Locate the File name: text field and enter a name for the backup file.
Note: This name is for you to remember what the exported registry file is for. Since you're backing up the entire Windows 7 Registry, I would recommend calling this file Complete Registry Backup or something like that. Adding a date at the end isn't a bad idea either.
Click the Save button.
A Registration File with an REG file extension will be created in the location you selected in Step 5 and with the file name you chose in Step 6. Continuing the example from the last step, the file would be named Complete Registry Backup.reg.
You can now make the changes you need to make to the Windows Registry.
If after making the registry changes, you realize that they did not give you the results you were looking for, you can simply restore the Windows 7 registry back to the point at which you backed it up.
Have you bought into the new Windows 8 and found it difficult to work with? Once again Microsoft has changed it's interface and created problems for its Users. They have hidden functions and options that the long time User has become accustom to. Things like the Start Button and the ShutDown Button. A Tech Republic author named Greg Shultz has written some great tutorials that explain how to work around some of these issues. The links below are to those articles.
Make Windows 8 boot straight to the desktop
Add a self-made Start button to the Windows 8 desktop
Add a Shutdown menu to the Windows 8 desktop
Separate names with a comma.
