Question about HP Compaq nx6110 Notebook

1 Answer

Slowness of the Laptop

I have a HP nx6110 series laptop. The configuration of the same is 40GB HDD and 256MB RAM with 1.6 GHz processor.
Now a days, its so slow that i have stoped using it. It is running on licensed version of XP though.
Just wanted to know, is it that the XP updates are too big for my 256MB RAM to handle? Should i increase the RAM size? or is it redundant and should be scrapped off?

Thanks,
Darshan

    I have an hp compaq nx6110 (1.6GHz, Intel Pentium M 1766 MHz, only 14 GB used and 37 GB free on hard drive). It's taking at least 4 minutes to boot up on AC power and running slow even after installing the maximum ram (2 GB) and running Advanced System Optimizer software. I cleaned up and defragged and cleaned the hard drive and registry, I have 77% of my ram free when operating a normal load. Is the Front Bus speed the issue? Registry problem? Also the audio hickups slightly when Windows start up theme plays and when CD plays. Is there anything I can do to speed this thing up?

The laptop is not redundant. Go to Crucial and go through their memory scan. XP can run on 256mb ram but not well. You will get more years out of the computer with more ram installed.

I think you're confusing RAM (memory) with hard disk space (storage). Installing more RAM makes your computer run faster. More hard disk space gives you more room to store stuff. Which would you like to do?

You cand put extra memory until 2 GB RAM but i see no use of it.
1GB RAM work excellent under Winxp
Also, you can get a better hard drive (160 GB).

Processor upgrade


Your CPU is tied into your motherboard. Only CPUs that are compatible with your motherboard will work. You can get your motherboard model from start>programs>system tools>system information. Once you have the model # then you can start searching for the CPU options. Good Luck.

Compare which is better hpDV900 amd -HPDV2000 intel


IF THE CONFIGURATION STATED BY YOU IS CORRECT THEN I WOULD SURELY GO FOR DV2000 BEACUSE OF HIGHER MEMORY(3 GB) AND AN INTEL PROCESSOR BECAUSE THE AMD PROCESSOR OF DV 9000 WILL GET SO HEATED AFTER ABOUT AN HOURS USE THAT YOU WONT BE ABLE TO KEEP IT ON YOUR LAP ... HOWEVER I STILL DOUBT THE CONFIGURATION .. CAUSE ACCORDING TO ME THE CONFIG OF DV2000 IS INTEL CORE 2 DUO T5500 1.66GHZ 1GB RAM AND 100GB HDD WHICH IS NOT AT ALL PREFERABLE BY ME
