Hewlett pavilion laptop slow operating system fault


A slow computer could be caused by a number of things - 1. Insufficient RAM (memory) - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to at least 1Gb of RAM. 2. Registry problems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys. Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc. 3. Uninstall/remove unused programs, this will also free up hard disk space. 4. Not enough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn't been configured to manage it. 5. Install latest Windows updates. 6. Update virus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc. 7. Clear the Internet cache for faster browsing. 8. Hard disk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioning efficiently. Run the following programs - Disk Cleanup - removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard disk space. Disk Defragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and therefore the hard disk access is faster.

Nx7300 black screen processor update


The motherboard will not support the new processors, one they are dual channel and your motherboard is not, creating a conflict, plus the configuration settup is different and I suspect voltage issues. Sorry! but the motherboard is not siutable for this modification.

Why is my computer slow


Netbooks are in general "slow" compared to laptops.

First , your computers cpu is a 1.6GHz N270 Intel Atom Processor which ?s a single core processor.

Second, it has "only" 1GB DDR2 (RAM) at 533MHz speed, which is not much compared to dual core and quad core processors, that operates with more than the double speed.

Third, as you use your netbook and get more and more applications on it, Windows registration database gets slower because it has to go throug this database at every start up.

Even applications you have uninstalled and not use anymore is kept as obsolete files in the registration database.

As I understand the Acer Aspire One Netbook uses Windows XP.

If so, there is two things you can do to speed up your computers performance.

You can purchase a PC System Utilities Software such as "Advanced Sytem Optimizer" to clean up your computers registration database and do other tune ups. See this site :

http://pc-system-utilities-software-review.toptenreviews.com/

If you are using either Windows XP or Windows 2000 (and only these two OS) you can perform the socalled prefetch trick .

Push the START button and select RUN

In the field write PREFETCH and hit the return button

A folder opens with all PF files. Delete them all, close the folder, empty your recycle bin and restart your computer.

It will take a little longer to open your computer than usual, but only the first time after you have deleted all the prefteched files. This is normal so do not worry.

Next time you start your computer you will see that it has been faster in the start up.

This is the best explanation I can come up with.

I hope this will help you.

Is it possible to install windows 2003 server and windows xp on studio 15 laptops?


yes, how ever you must format them install windows 2003 server first on its own partion on the hard drive, and then install windows xp in its own hard drive.

how ever,, each OS has its own operating system, and depending on what your planning to actually do with them may determine how well thier gonan work. Example if your just gonna use them for class room exercises so your students can learn and manage a lan website on their computers then it might be ok. if you wanna host actually websites, then your gonna run into a lot of issues especially with space.

your avg dell studio specs
Processor
  • Processor Intel Pentium Dual Core T4300 / 2.1 GHz
  • Multi-Core processor technology Dual-Core
  • 64-bit processor Yes

Memory
  • Type L2 cache
  • Cache size 3.0 MB
RAM
  • Installed Size 3.0 GB / 4.0 GB (max)
  • Technology DDR2 SDRAM - 400.0 MHz
these are all well above what you would need to run the OS.
