    Yo may have picked up some spyware/malware on the computer. What security software do you use?

Yes it actually is a common issue with vista, i had a sony vaio with 3gb ram vista was amazing for first 3 months, but after that it went downhill, game load times started to double, you need to download a free spyware/temp file removal tool, i suggest adaware it works fairly well and will probably give u a marginal increase in performance, also check into getting virus protection if you dont already have it, AVG has a free one which i link you to here at the bottom

also be sure to do a disk cleanup you can get to that via start/programs/accessories/System Tools/disk cleanup

It's probably cheaper and better long term for you to just upgrade.

Want to increase the speed of my pc


Hello alanwemple,

Increasing the RAM is surely a good first step to speeding your computer up some. It was my impression that the a340n supports a total of 4GB, so you might want to recheck your manual. And 4GB would certainly be better than 2. As for the CPU, it's upgradeable on this machine, it uses a "Socket 478" chip. Simply remove the old one and insert a new one. But, the CPU is probably not contributing that much to your slowness problem.

Two things that I'd look at first, before I tackled the CPU is video performance and the hard drive. A faster video card with more video RAM can substantially speed things up. And, the hard drive may need some maintenance, starting with defrag. You may also want to do a disk cleanup and while you are at it, run a full virus check and malware detection program such as MacAfee or Norton to make absolutely sure that no bad stuff is slowing you down. And these are cheaper than replacing the CPU.

Hope this helps.

Hi!

Two things to do then, either buy a new bigger disk and replace the on on your HP...OR buy an external disk and connect it via the USB.

Just remeber that you need to reinstall everythin on that HP if you replace the disk on it with another one

Good luck
