Question PlotVectorField

Hello mathgroup !
I am having problems with PlotVectorField, when trying to plot
a simple field like the electric field of a point charge.

f[x_,y_]:={x,y}/(x^2+y^2)^(3/2)

When I set the option PlotPoints->8 , I get the plot, but for any value
of PlotPoints > 8, the computer crashes completely.
(The default value of PlotPoints is 15 !)
I am running Mma. 2.2 under Windows 95 on a Pentium 100, 16 Mb Ram.

Any suggestions, please?

Thanks in advance.
