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.

Re: very slow, old, compaq presario 5000
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.

You dont need a extras Hard drive That someting else .. Hard Drive and Memory are two differente Thing... Go on the Net and Exemple... Type Compaq Presario SR1802HM.. Manual & Spec, You will get all the information your need for it ....
which operating system you are using and what is the ram capacity? and onemore thing to check what is your virtual memory capacity. for that
Right click "mycomputer" > properties > advanced >click settings on performance > in advanced tab > increase virtual memory file size. generally its size is ram capacity * 2 (ex: for 512mb its virtual memory size is 1GB) check that and we can increase the file size also.
yes just pur chase 1 128 MB or 512 MB or 256 MB ram but check first *********** bord ram module check your old 64 Mb ram if it has 1 notch it is ddr1 or ddr2 if it has 2 notch it iks sdram then pur chase from shop. then fix it on secodn slot
Remove the original module, install just the new one and then start your computer. If it doesn't start, the memory you bought is bad. The system boards used in the Compaqs will auto-detect memory, and there are no jumpers or BIOS settings needed.
Your machine takes PC2100 memory modules and yes you should have more memory to run WindowsXP.
For an eMachine the best way to upgrade your memory is to contact eMachine directly and have them advise you or provide you wit memory to suit your needs because their motherboards are pretty specific to them and the specs as sold to you are not available to us.
Use the below to get on your way. Hope this Fixed ya and thanks for using Fix ya.

be sure that the memory u got is compatible in your presario 5352. I tell you that adding 512mb to current 64 mb maybe a problem. you should remove the 64mb and replace it by 512mb and be sure that the new memory is compatible. want more information about your presario go to www.hp.com then search "compaq presario 5352"
