Well abcopeland, you can add another ram (the easiest way). Do scan disk (to remove unnesassary file) & defragmentation. Check also weather your pc have been infected or not by installing a good anti virus.

First thing to do to speed up a computer even with this slow processor is to remove some unnecessary program installed on the computer, then run a good anti virus and anti malware software some Avast and Malwarebytes to make sure that not a virus or malware is causing this slow computer and the best thing to is to add up a Mermoy on your computer that will surely make it much faster....

Intel pentium g620 2.6ghz 3mb processor

upgrading your processor will not speed up your internet only the overall speed of your system. try antivirus scan or remove any spamware/ clean out temporary internet files. look at ways to speed up your browser. Consider increasing your internet speed via your internet/broadband provider.

First, your pc5300 memory runs default at 6300Mhz, not 333. Perhaps your motherboard Front Side Bus line is 333 in which case the memory will drop to that speed, but if the FSB and memory match speed, then it would run at 6300. Since you have an older unit, I would suppose you are running only 333, and that is average speed for that config. In addition, you are only running 1 gig RAM, which is woefully inadequate for Windows 7, so everything you do is going to be slow.

I have been given a acer aspire L320 BUT THERE IS NOT A PROCESSOR IN IT. what i want to know is what processor

The Acer Aspire L320 can take 3 different processors

1. Intel Core 2 Duo

Dual Core chip with speeds from 1.8Ghz to 3.3 Ghz

2. Intel Celeron D

Dual Core chip with speeds from 1.6Ghz to 2.7Ghz

3. Intel Pentium 4

Single core chip with speeds from 1.3Ghz to 3.8Ghz

The Core 2 Duo 3.3 Ghz is the most expensive and Pentium 4 1.3 Ghz the cheapest.

Some more information is available on the Intel website, links are below:

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya.

You are worrying about nothing.

Intel Pentium Dual Core and Intel Celeron Dual Core are both Intel Core Dual processors.

The performance rate is mesured compared to a single core processor so your 2.2GHz dual core will do the same amount of work as a 4.95GHz single core.

The pc run slow though I optumize the hardrive and checked for viruses.

No. The pentium 2 is too slow to run Windows XP and be very useful. It will run XP, but it won't be an enjoyable experience.

Processor Upgrade

did you reset the bios first. ? (id pull the coin cell)
you did all that backwards , the steps are.
1: read the HP service guide see all processors supported.
its a short list. its not like changing light bulbs.
2: the BIOS must support that precessor too.
3: the upgrade if possible , SEE?

d530 SFF, is a small form factor desktop.
it came with
Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz
my guess is you want the 3.3mHz version. ( a wasted effort and cash in my opinion the ,it is only fractionally faster, (go for 2 or 4 cores and win)
these old PC are mostly NOW scrapped, gone, nobody wants them.
for good reasons. (no support and no parts, and slow as slug)
worse is it runs XP the dead, now, virus magnet.
support at HP says.

HP COmpaq EVO Business D530

circa 2003, 14 years young?
some sold with Windows 2000. ! ouch and Mandrake 9.1 Linux - Light and OS/2...
specs. that matter
Intel 865G Chipset
800-MHz, 533-MHz or 400-MHz FSB (front side bus limits)
and the memory must match it. speed wise.

the parts surfer (HP ) shows it cam with 17 processor options.
sold newer, the full p/n in the service tag tells this.. not told by you.
some Celeron and other P4s.

the fastest one is, (HP P/N#)


Intel Pentium 4 processor - 3.20GHz (Northwood with Hyper-Threading, 800MHz front side bus, 512KB L2 cache, FCPGA2, Socket 478)

the problem with that is the BIOS, many times the newer faster
the hp support page is active.
the last BIOS update is for just this, processors

eg: BIOS 109
Updates Intel Pentium 4 Processor microcode for F41, F34, F29 and F49 steppings. (cupid app shows this)

getting the BIOS correct first is hard.. due to variances, in mobo
when PC boots, the BIOS scans many thing but CPU is #1
it scans it to see if it recognizes, it.
if it can not do that, (not in its old 2003 list) then it defaults to slowest CPU support, what else can it do?
the it sets up clock rates properly, this is super basics in PCs.
Then it scans the memory sticks to see if they can run at this clock rate, if not it goes to slow speeds. (what else can it do ?)
it will go to the slowest ram stick inserted. speeds.
or to slowest processors you have actual.

that is all.

U have to find the motherbord's manual !!!! U will find there all u need. But most probably u won;t be able to put those processors (the speed diferences are too big, even if they are of the same slot type)

Petium 3 processor with windows xp

Just a bit of information. Your slow speed reguards to DSL is bull. Unless your ISP requires your system to run a min Mhz cpu. Cant really suggest how high you can up your cpu unless we know the model of the board & it wouldn't hurt to know the bios version too. Here is a small list from Fixya of Dells & Pent III.
