❑ The system response time varies, depending on the number of applications that are open and running.
Close any application that you are not currently using.
❑ Increasing the system memory may also help. The computer has two memory slots. For memory

see the section Adding memory (page 73).
❑ Another option is to defragment the hard drive. See the Windows
Help files for details or contact your
system administrator if you have one.
