Increase Hard Disk speed in Windows

If you like to increase/optimize your Hard Disk I/O - read/write
speed without buying expensive software utilities to do that
job or changing the HD, just follow next steps. With doing these
steps you will increase Hard disk speed.....

In any case, it won't harm your system, so try it yourself ...

Steps:

1. Run SYSEDIT.EXE from the start & then Run command.

2. Expand the system.ini file window.

3. Scroll down almost to the end of the file untill you find a line called [386enh].
4. Press Enter to make one blank line, and in that line type
5. Irq14=4096 (note: This line IS CASE SENSITIVE)
6. Click on the File menu, then choose Save.
7. Close SYSEDIT and reboot your computer.
8. Restart windows!

         The speed improvement will be noticed just after the system reboots...

  1. Thank you for sharing this! It's great that we can find so many good maintenance software which are very useful if we want to have clean computers. Personally, I know some tips from a friend who works at IT tech support... he taught me how to take care of my device easy and simple... and have one without any kind of problems.

  3. Khm... bullsh*t, this does nothing on modern systems. Windows 7 uses system.ini only for compatibility reasons. The particular setting you are suggesting would therefore be read only by Win 95 and it's predecessors and/or 16-bit applications. Anyway IRQ 14 (Interrupt ReQuest)is a HDD IRQ (PRIMARY IDE IRQ). Setting this to 4096 would create (on win 3.11 or win 95, win Me) a 4MB IRQ cache (which was the default setting in win 95 an later anyway). Windows 7 IRQ cache equals HDD cache by default.

  5. how do you even run sysedit.exe? Isn't that only included in the 32-bit versions of windows 7? I'm running a 64-bit version so I don't think it's possible for me to do what you're suggesting.
