Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
I added memory already and the specs display 37.2GB hard drive, 1.10GHz, 512MB, 576MB virtual memory?? I know next to nothing about computers but can I still upgrade anything in this monster to speed things up? Thanks.
Beyond adding memory, there really isn't anything you can add or change in the hardware to gain any real speed. Older computers don't support the technology to go as fast as the newer ones.
Other than being slow to start up and load programs, these older machines are still useful. For Internet access, email, word processing and other applications like that, computer speed isn't much of an issue anyway. The people who really need processor speed are gamers or users of power applications like animation or music or big number-crunching financial packages. I've fixed up systems like yours for parents who love the fact that about all their kids can do with them is schoolwork.
Bottom line, though, is that it would be better to put money into a new computer instead of trying to upgrade this one if you truly need more speed.
