    Software can't upgrade your processor.



    Your information is vague, but some things you can do to speed it up are: (1) More RAM (2) Run Defrag from System Tools (3) More RAM (4) Reduce the number of programs running on Startup (5) More RAM (6) Upgrade your motherboard and processor. (If you have a regular Pentium now...a Pentium4 won't fit.) (7) Make sure you are not infected with malware/spyware (8) Did I mention more RAM?

The only way to get your computer to run faster without buying new hardware (such as RM or a new motherboard is to 1) eliminate unnecessary programs from starting up or loading at startup and/or by removing ad-ware/spy-ware from your computer.

1) Check to make sure that no programs that you are unaware of are starting up by running explorer.exe and going to Program Files/Startup and removing any progarms that you do feel you need from Startup.
2) Download, run, install either or both Ad-Aware (not AdWARE OR adaware) from www.lavasoft.com and/or Spybot Search & Destroy. Ad-aware and Spybot are both free and excellent programs.

Short of buying new hardware there is not much else you can do to make your computer run faster.

The best thing you should do, is to replace your processor to much higher version. Upgrade your RAM and clean up your system for system clutter. Every day we used our computer the more system clutter on it, defragment your hard drive, clean of your registry and clean up your system for virus/spyware/malware and other malicous program.

Hello henry rules4 what type of system do you have? I.E a dell, hp, sony, acer, emachine? That would help out allot. The other thing is have you ever defraged your computer before? Also what are you doing with you computer for example computer gameing, computer graphics and or autoCadd with you system that would use up a lot of memory? A little bit more info would help out?

the best thing you could do is to increase your amount of ram in your pc this will handle the slow down problem. recording software takes quite a bit of ram space dvd software takes more ram than your cdrw. if you video card doesnt have its own on card ram this will also slow you down. depending on the motherboard you have its possible to upgrade the proccessor to a faster one 2.8ghz intel new can be bought for like 17bucks but ram is the easiest and sounds like just what your needing.

no, you cannot upgrade to a core 2, and, even if you could, your board would slow the chip down.

Upgrade from Pentium 3 to Pentium 4


what socket is the Pentium 3? Socket A. The sockets have to be compatible for example you can't upgrade a Dual Core for a Core 2 Duo because although the chipsets look the same the motherboard may not support the new instruction set. I had this problem recently as i wanted to upgrade my Intel Celeron D 3.02ghz to the Pentium Dual Core 1.8ghz and although the chips were identical and fitted perfectly in my mobo, the actual mobo i was using (foxconn) wouldnt work with it forcing me to buy an ASRock mobo and replace the entire system.

Upgrade from Pentium 3 to Pentium 4


The board may not be able to support that processor. Check out the board specs to make sure it can use the P4 and make sure the sockets are the same.
