Boost your PC using Notepad only? mystring=(80000000) explained
So, Folks says there is a little trick you can use to Boost your computer’s speed instantly without using any program. Let’s see if this is just another hoax or it really works..
Steps to boost:
- Open Notepad.
- Type “mystring=(80000000)” without double quotes.
- Save it as “ram.vbe”. The extension must be .vbe .
- Double click the saved file. And you are done.
So,What does it actually do?
This is a visual basic script which is technically putting value of “80000000” in a variable “mystring”. This script is executed in windows by double clicking it. But it is unclear how this helps in boosting memory.
Some applications have memory leak problems which decrease amount of memory for other applications. It is said that this trick help regain that memory back. If your computer do not have memory leak applications then this trick is useless for you.
Does it actually work?
I decided to do a quick test to prove it. Mozilla firefox is said to have the worst memory leak issues. So, I prepared the script, launched firefox and waited 5 minutes and browse the internet. The Task manager screenshot is:
and after clicking on mystring script i got:
The memory usage is almost same and the CPU Usage (bottom line) decreases, but such a little change is normal in Windows. It can go to 55% and the other second it reaches 30%.
On the other hand, The Window Resource monitor do not show any significant change. So, I can say that this trick does not help at all or don’t cause any noticeable changes. So, instead of using these stupid tricks, I suggest increasing RAM/ use Windows ReadyBoost(It helps a little bit if your PC do not have much RAM).
