You said you have 512K of RAM; I assume you mean 512MB. Either way, you are in dire need of a RAM upgrade. The sweet spot for XP memory-wise was 2gigs. The working minimum is 512MB, but the recommended spec is at least 1. If you upgraded to at least 2 gigs of ram, you'll see a speed improvement.
If you need help finding out what type of memory to get, let me know.

have you checked the manufacturer website for Firmware or software updates? i know you said you re-installed it but there's a chance if it's with the CD that came with the product, it may be out dated or buggy

Welcome to Fixya

Install the printer first using wired method. Just to test if the printer is working since that is a brand new printer. Reinstall the software that came with the printer if possible. Here's the link on how to install the printer over wireless.

Thank you for using Fixya!

It depends on the Experience Rating Index that Win 7 gives you. To see the rating, right click on My Computer and select Properties. If it asks to refresh the rating index, do so. After that, check which one has the lowest rating. If it's the processor that gets the lowest rating (if it is below 2) then yes, you should install Windows XP. If it is the graphic card, or the RAM memory that has the lowest rating, you can upgrade them to make it run better and keep Windows 7.

You can see more about the rating scores on this Microsoft website: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Windows-Experience-Index-Understand-and-improve-your-computers-performance-in-Windows-Vista

Can i update the video card for hp a610n


Hi.

The HP Pavilion A610N was not designed for Win 7 Ultimate as it was only shipped with 512MB of RAM (memory) The Video card is integrated and only supports 64MB, you will have to purchase a AGP 8X video card to install.
Unless you have maxed your memory to 1GB then it could run Win 7 fairly well, If not i would go back to XP.


Regards.

Toshiba Satelite A150-S4184,Hasent been used much,It was verry fast, now have internet again and loads very slow and takes long time to load pages,I think auto downloads instales windows 7,What can I


How much memory do you have in your Toshiba Satelite laptop?
Windows XP with Service Pack 3 needs a minimum of 1GB but ideally would run better with 2GB.

Windows 7 would need the same but there is no auto-update process to go from XP to 7 as this is not allowed - you would have to do a Custom install of Windows 7 which requires a clean install (i.e. format the hard drive and start from scratch).

If you are running XP with less than 1GB memory, then you need to check what the maximum memory that the laptop can be upgraded to?

The easiest method is to use the Crucial Memory web site System Scanner utility which will detect how much memory is installed and advise how much you can upgrade to according to the options available for the specific make & model of laptop.

If the laptop hasn't been turned on or on-line for a long time then you may be using a lot of resources downloading Microsoft critical updates plus updates for other installed programs like iTunes, QuickTime, Java etc.

Try downloading and installing a copy of the free Advanced System Care 5 utility then running the Deep Care tools which include System Optimisation and clean-up utilities to improve system performance.

No there isn't that's the biggest problem with Win 7. DRIVERS.. if they aren't expressly written for Win 7. Then it is all just one big headache. In saying that sometimes installing as Admin, & in XP SP2 Compatibility Mode, helps.

Check the print processor settings in the advanced tab of the printer properties. This should be set to Winprint, and not anything else.
