Question about AMD Athlon 64 4000+, 2.4 GHz (ADA4000DEP5AS) OEM / Unboxed Processor

Everythimg is slow

My computer is really really slow, it takes sometimes 5 to 10 minutes just for me to be able to get to my home page and then after that another 5 minutes after i sign in and whenever I go to different sights its really slow.
What can I do?? I've built this PC based on the AMD Athlon 64 4000+ processor on an MSI RS480M2-IL mobo. I've got 3GB of RAM and this things runs too slow to do anything. After failing at trying to install a Linux build (my own ineptitude I'm sure) I installed Vista Home Premium SP1. I tried running the MS Rating app, but it times out and doesn't run. I do have an old IDE HDD in it, but I can't believe that's hte issue. The task manager performance chart shows the processor running at 100% all the time, even though memory is only barely being used.

Anyone have any thoughts?

    There is nothing installed or running on the PC yet, so i don't think spybot or avg would find anything - it's a clean OS install. The HDD is old, small (40GB) and probably slow, but I'm not convinced that is what is making the CPU run at 100% even when nothing is going on.

Try running Spybot ( and avg on it. run Spybot several times (rebooting after every attempt) untill it finds nothing. If you built the machine are you sure that the processor heat sink is correctly installed and not over heating? What is the speed of the drive?

NEC VERSA M540 - Performing slow

Try downloading ad-aware. Run it and see if that speeds it up. It is a spyware killer (pop-ups), also clean your hard drive up with a disk clean up option and a degragmentation. If it is still running slow, try a ram up grade.

My computer is really slow going into differnt sites....the compressor fan is slow to start up...had my computer stripped down and tuned up, but it's still slow...they said the cpu is showing its age,...

Your computer going slow could be for the following reasons: 1 Not enough RAM - remove unwanted files by cleaning the disc. Also defragment the computer. Increase the RAM 2 Virus - remove the virus 3 If you do the above you will see the improvement and no need to have a new cpu

My Pentium 4 2.53GHz computer is running slow

overclocking will kill it off in no time at all, never over-clock, unless your testing a product,
on SOHO systems, they are not built to over-clock really, over-clocking, it will burn out in a 3rd of the lifecycle.
there are a few things you could do,instead.

Backup old data you have on it to an external Hdd, then remove the copy's off the Pc,
use less Applications at once.if not using, close it
Checkout software like Rambooster,
Add bigger Hdd, Add more RAM.
Increase the size of the page file.
In advanced system performance, adjust for better performance,
type MSCONFIG in the run box, in the startup tab, un-tick unwanted/needed items
(( must know what your un-ticking )) or possible DISASTERS.
Defrag twice on the trot,
get rid of anything un-used, go to your programmes, un-install old "un-used" programmes,
( Don't delete everything in sight )
be very specific, but check all over the system,
delete duplicates, update the O/S, update virus sign, run scan check all good.
system should be all good now,

Hope this helps

Sounds to me like it is only configured for one bill type, in diagnostics is a menu choice called "learn bills" to teach it the bill types ie. type 1, type 2 and type 3 etc. but you'd need the advanced diagnostic access disk or usb to go there.

Everythimg is slow

Beatriceccc: This can frequently happen when Vista runs on a computer that's hardware just can't keep up with it. I'd like to have you try this for me. Click on your start menu, then "Right click" on "computer" in the left column.This will take you to a page, that will give you something called the Microsoft Rating. If you can comment back to this post with the details of the overall rating, as well as the specific categories, we'll be able to provide better assistance.
Was this computer pre-installed with vista? or did you upgrade from XP? What is the model number of your machine? All of this will help us to help you.

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.
