Hp 530 laptop is very slow and freezes


Well, The problem can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated hardware, overload startup programs, corrupt registry issues, too many junks, virus attack, poor security software taking too much system resources, remnants of uninstalled applications etc. The fact is, you should keep some system maintenance job regularly. If you don't want to do these manually, try the hp speed up tool http://www.speeduphp.com/ to give a free & full scan of your slow HP PC to find & fix all possible issues.

Meanwhile, upgrading hardware configuration (add RAM, change a new video card, larger-volume HDD etc) can be a fast yet effective way to improve your pc performance. But that won't be the most economical way, as you know you can't always afford to do that.

Will windows 7 work on my m70 laptop


Hi

Thank you for your query

Your laptop does have the minimum spec for Windows 7, however I would recommend that you upgrade the memory from 1GB to 2 GB as it will be quite slow.

If you havent already upgraded the memory you currently have is 1 GB 533 MHz DDR2 SDRAM (2 X512MB modules), you will need to upgrade this to 2 X1GB 522MHZ DDR2 SDRAM

I hope this has been helpful.

Sounds like a lack of memory on the systems part. You should upgrade your system memory.
from what I've found your system will only accept 512 MB of memory, so if no upgrade has been done yet, you should have a spare bay to upgrade memory with an extra 256MB chip, which you can order from Dell.

Here is a video on how to install the new memory upon receiving it.
