Hi,

In basic terms your computer speed depends mainly on two factors:
1:System configuration
2:Software which are running in background.

Your configuration is fine so check for unwanted third party software running in background.

Steps to check it out:

Click on start
go to run
type "msconfig"
go to "startup" which is on the TOP right corner.
The list which you see here are the third party softwares which start themselves automatically when your computer boots up.
Uncheck those ones you don't need to use all the time.(Even if you uncheck all of them, It won't harm your computer)
Then click on apply then close.
restart your computer
It will give you a message >> Check on don't show this message again and then click on "OK."

You will feel your computer running better.

NOTE: some softwares like NORTON, trend micro, Mcafee. These
can also make your computer slow and we can not disable them completely from above mentioned steps. We need to disable there services as well or remove them completely.

I have laptop valiant 5340AS, WITH WINDOWS 98, 4 GB H.D. AND 32 MB RAM, IS POSSIBLE CHANGE TO WINDOWS XP?


The minimum RAM required for XP is 128MB. You could upgrade the memory to 512MB or something. Under 512MB it will not work smooth.
The minimum required HDD is 1.5 GB. You have 4 GB. It is not that much, but it'll work.

The minimum required CPU is 300MHz. If your CPU is less than that, it'll not work.

I personaly would not recommend to upgrade to XP, the laptop may become very slow. i would advise to try it, and if it is not working smooth, then rollback to 98.

If you would like something newer than 98, I would recommend 2000.

Windows 7 on dell xps m1710 - problem with cpu performance. according to device manager the drivers are in correctly. but i can see in windows performance information, it is very poor rating compared to...


CPU does not need a driver. the 'driver' is nothing more than a way to identify the CPU. (ie model, stepping, etc). I would suggest ignoring windows and run a Dell diagnostic. if the hardware checks out ok, then its a programming issue. It could also be a BIOS issue. Check the BIOS to make sure CPU cache is enabled, and everything is set for high performance. If your machine is under warranty, CALL DELL and have it serviced or replaced.

Processor upgrade


Your CPU is tied into your motherboard. Only CPUs that are compatible with your motherboard will work. You can get your motherboard model from start>programs>system tools>system information. Once you have the model # then you can start searching for the CPU options. Good Luck.

Please rate this solution.
