    Dear Friend!!
    first of all, your computer should be compatible for runniing windows 8.
    Following are the requirements for windows 8-

    • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2

    • RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
    • Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
    • Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver.
      Even though the RAM is 1 GB, it will usually hang up often as there would be no space on the RAM to run programs.
      So optionally, you need to upgrade the RAM to min 2 GB or more to make windows 8 work better.
      And try to get processor having speed more than 1.66 GHz.
      avoid to use win 8 on intel atom processor.

    Hi,

    The speed of running of any program depends on many things.

    1. The Operating System installation and how perfect was the installation.
    2. The processor , faster the processor, with multi core, speeds up the system.
    3. The quantity of RAM , higher RAM with similar clock speed can execute fast.
    4. Faster HDDs can load fast and reduce seek time.
    5. The fast data bus of the motherboard delivers fast processing.
    6. The minimal installation of additional programs , apps can speed up the system,
    7. Too many updates can spoil the speed of the system.
    8. Virus is one of the reason for slow processing.

    Judge for yourself which are responsible for slow processing of Windows 8 in your system.

    Thanks.

    hiii...
    You need to check alot of things before installing windows 8 because the windows 8 is completely graphic user interface software and i needs a better and optimal processor.
    You need to check that whether the minimum requirements are provided to install the software or not.
    Also it is must that to have windows 8 on PC, you should have a graphic accelator as well as directX version 9.0.x..
    Try to clean up the RAM time after time is you don't want to upgrade RAM and keep less processes running on device for quality experience.

    hi,
    first take care that your system supports windows 8 or not many systems does not support windows 8 many problems are facing with windows 8 .....your system should have minimum 2Gb ram 1Ghz processor 1GB graphic card ......if all this satisfies then check the cd/dvd contains any scratches because it takes long time if file copy is not done clean disk or use another disk to boot
