Question about HP Pavilion ZV5000, ZV6000, ZX5000 Series 12 Cell Li-Ion Battery - DP390A (DP390A1) CD-ROM Drive
IM GOING TO ADD 1GB OF MEMORY ALSO IWANT TO REFORMATE THE HARD DRIVE HOW DIFFICULT IS THAT TO DO?
Unfortunately "real slow" is a subjective analysis and I would need to know what you are comparing it to before going much further. Lots of things could be impacting the performance of your PC or you could just own a slow system (compared to your friend's) and you may need to adjust your expectations (or buy a new PC). However, adding memory can speed up a machine. Clearing out unused files and defragmenting the hard disk will also help. There are lots of tweaks you can do to XP and Vista but they usually only result in marginal performance improvements. You may have a bunch of malware (virus or spyware) running, you may have multiple anti-virus programs, multiple firewall programs, etc. Some people go overboard, not realizing they don't have the extra CPU power needed to run all those programs. Performing a recovery will completely clean out your system and restore it to the factory settings. If the system's original performance from the factory was good this will get you back to that point. (Be sure to back up your data files and system settings before starting the backup though!!)
