Solution:


i) see it depends how application(fire fox) is using CPU or processor, even though nothing is running in the background, firefox will utilize CPU(like background work with going between firefox and CPU or processor which we may not intercept......)

ii) if u are so curious about why it is i will ask you to see a process in Task Manager called "System Idle Process" which will consume about 99 or 90 %(which is a process is not required or doesnot have anything to applications but still it will 99 or 90% percent of CPU) see it has background work with CPU or processor which is not understandabl e by a common person...

iii) i u still think that this is not the right answer try to uninstall fireforx and renistall and check it,  or try some other browser like opera and check whether it is upto your expectations and continue using it and maintain some peace of mind .........


Thankin you

I would like to upgrade my cpu. Can I put a larger cpu? I have a compaq EVO D510 with a 1.8 processor.


You can upgrade the speed of the CPU. Of course in order to do that you must know the motherboard capabilities. If the motherboard is upgradable to 2.0ghz processor with the same specs with your 1.8ghz processor then you can upgrade. If the motherboard is un-upgradable, my suggestion is to replace the motherboard, get a new processor, memory module, etc. Meaning you just bought a new computer. For the mean time, upgrade your memory module. Un-install the software that you don't need. Especially the one the eats up the processor speed.

Upgrading my compaq evo d51s


A ram upgrade could help, however you may need to think about upgrading your CPU also. First check if you can upgrade your CPU. Your best option may be to upgrade to a new computer altogether.

Motherboard ID Motherboard Name Compaq Evo


as long as it is a socket 478 processor which narrows it down to P4 or celeron ( P4 being better and faster ) it should be fine.
Obviously it will state what processors it can handle in the computer manual so if you find the manual it should state in there.
I dont think it will handle more then a 3ghz P4

Dual core cpu on the compaq evo n610c


none im sorry to say but the intel pentium m 1.6 is similar to a dual core it is like a 3.2 pentium 4 in a laptop with 2mb cache i have the evo n610c and it is the best processor i found compatible and it does not heat up like the pentium 4 processor does allowing it to be tweaked a little if you max out your ram and know a little about modifying your pc for any more questions or concerns feel free to call main street pc in plymouth nc (my company) google it and i can get the processor and install it for you pretty cheaply
