great for removing spyware which may be slowing your computer down.

IBM S51 (8210-CTO) gives high revs on the fan

This model has a variable speed fan, if gets faster as the temp goes up in the case.

If it is staying on high RPM all the time you may have a temp issue.

I would clear out all dust from inside that case, make sure to clear out the processor heat sync and see if that lets the fans drop back down to normal RPM.

How do I change ram speed to from 533 to 667 to enable new faster memory?

Before changing to faster RAM, you must first make sure your computer can handle the faster. Motherboard manufacturers, particularly the ones supplying motherboards for consumer desktops/laptops restrict the speed and total amount of RAM those computers can have installed.
To verify what limits your desktop has, the easiest way is to visit the website below and have it check your system.
It will list what you currently have installed and what your maximum upgradability is.
1. Check the box to accept the terms of service and click on "Download The Scanner". 2. After the download, double-click the program to run the scan. 3. After the scan is complete, it will open a browser window to display what memory is currently installed, the size, speed and of course, what is the limit your system can hold.
In the event that your system is not capable of running RAM that has been certified to run at higher speeds, it is not advisable to install the higher speed RAM as your desktop/laptop will not run at the higher, but rather the system will "underclock" (run at the slower speed) itself in order to utilize the RAM and maintain stability.

Constant restarts after upgrading memory to 512 on 300 gateway

The first place i would look -- check the new memory, make sure its the correct type and voltage for your motherboard. Next, check to make sure your ram are both the same speed, voltage , etc. some motherboards are picky about memory types and some require that paired memory be installed.
Reseat (remove and replace) the memory in it's slot, poorly seated memory can cause restarts or no-starts. try these and post again here if you need further assistance.

Radio programmes keep breaking up

Try choosing a slower buffer speed for the radio program (you should be able to choose right there on the site).

Also try updating Windows, your browsing program and your sound card drivers. New technologies come out all the time, and old programs may not be able to keep up with the broadcasts' demands.

Lastly, look for troubleshooting tips on the website you're accessing for that radio program; it may require you to tweak some ActiveX or browser settings (if so, they should walk you through it).

As always, RAM is the best poor man's upgrade. Just to be AVERAGE, in my humble opinion, one needs a minumum of 256MB. Add some if you don't have that. You'll really notice the difference.

Can I upgrade my Toshiba A105-S4011 CPU processor (solo Core T1300 processor)? What is it compatible to?

if you are looking for performance, you may want to start with the RAM first. It is DDR2 and that laptop is able to go up to a max of 4GB RAM. If that doesn't speed things up, consider getting a 7200RPM hard drive. Laptop processors rather difficult to upgrade. It will require disassembling the laptop completely and theres a good chance that something will be damaged in the process

Install memory upgrade

you need to find out what type of ram,and amount your motherboard takes (sd,ddr,ddr2,sod) and how many ram slots it has, the user manual of the mobo will tell you this information.if you dont have the manual search the net for it.
it is very easy physically on a desktop,you just push them in the slot ,taking note of the notches on the ram sticks,ensuring they lock down correctly,
note if you are using ddr2 you need to install in pairs to obtain the full speed of the ram,things can be a little more tricky on laptops as some are easy to get at, and others you need to remove the cover of the entire laptop.

good luck
