Question about Gateway Essential 466 PC Desktop
I have gateway Essential 466c with intel celeron processor and I have 256mb and 32mb ram. It came with windows 98 when I purchased it. I have installed windows xp pro last year. My pc is not working fast and I am thinking of changing the mother board to intel core 2 duo. Is it possible to replace the motherboard or is there any solution for making it work faster with the existing system?
You need to perform some maintenance activity by:
-- cleaning system junk
-- optimizing computer services
-- optimizing internet
-- repairing registry
-- defraging registry
-- clearing browsers junk
do these things with some secure tool such as Intel Software Partner Reginout. In addition to it upgrading RAM would be helpful .thanks

You wont be able to upgrade your Motherboard without buying a new CPU and most likely new RAM also. Can you specify that it is either 256 or 32 MB or System RAM? Maybe 256 System and 32 on the Video card, or maybe you meant 256MB or 33Mhz, in which case you need to get a new system... You should probably take away all the fancy visual appearances away which in Control Panel in System on the Advanced Tab, which is also where you can check on the status of your Page File which should be set at 128-312 MB, anything lower or higher will slow your PC down. Also you can download something called ResetDMA.VBS that can reset your transfer mode back to DMA if you are in PIO (slow). Last but not least, scan for viruses with Trojan Hunter, Bit Defender, ClamWin, F-prot, Avast, Ad-aware, etc...

You speed up your existing system by upgrading the memory to 1GB.
If you want a much faster machine then you will need to replace the motherboard, memory, PSU (power suppy) hard drive and processor.
If you change the motherboard etc you will notice the difference in speed
