    Default ReadyBoost, Why don't I have it?


    I purchased a new computer last year's christmas. It came with Vista
    Home Premium, recently I heard of ReadyBoost and that it was included in
    Vista Home Premium. The problem is that I don't have ReadyBoost or I'm
    just too stupid to find it. Can anyone help me?

    You need a usb thumb drive to use Readyboost. When you go and buy 1 or
    you may have 1 already you need to right click on the drive in my
    computer and there will be a tab that says readyboost just enable it and
    it will be activated. Also you can only have 1 device for readyboost.

    Do you have a "readyboost-capable" flash drive?

    You need one.

    Ready boost is there you just need a 'ready boost' compatible USB stick to
    use it. Just place the USB stick into a USB port, wait for it to be
    recognised by 'auto play' then from the auto play box click the 'speed up my
    system' option. When the ready boost properties box opens choose how much of
    the available space on the USB drive you want to use for ready boost and
    then click OK. You will, of course, need to leave the USB drive in situ to
    benefit from ready boost. Ready boost is also most effective if your PC has
    less than 2GB of RAM. (512MB to 1GB) If you already have 2GB RAM on your
    machine then, personally, I haven' found any increase in performance.

    The hardware required for ready boost is not included in Vista. The
    ReadyBoost software is included in Vista so when you add the required
    hardware it will be available to you.

    You can also use an SD card for ReadyBoost instead of a a flash drive.

    Ready boost is only really necessary when you have a small amount of RAM
    (512MB to 1.5GB) over that I haven't seen any increase in performance by
    using ready boost. There are people who have said (in the past) that they
    have seen quite a performance hike with ready boost and 2GB and above of
    RAM, but I've certainly not experienced it.
