If the upgrade was added to the 2 GB of existing RAM, your computer will run at the slowest speed. That's why some manufacturers recommend replacing existing RAM with the upgraded memory

Soundclick music player does not buffer right...starts stops...plays briefly...often skips on to next song....


Sounds like either a corrupt sound file or you should try a different program. Use VLC player. Also your PC may have memory issues. Try upgrading the RAM to at least 4GB.

What would be some more powerful motherboard upgrade on a a6700f HP with 630watts and dual monitor graphics card from ATI?


Try to scan it for malware or viruses. Run combofix:

For virus scan, boot to avg rescue cd/usb flash:
http://www.avg.com/ww-en/avg-rescue-cd

Then fix it using Windows Repair All in One:

Also, try updating your drivers particularly the video.

Uninstall or disable any unnecessary program that loads at startup.

Use ccleaner, to clean up disk space and registry.

I bought my new Sony Vaio VPCEH last 2 weeks ago,. dual core, 2.3ghz, 4gb ram.. what i wondered is why my cpu almost overload all the time even i just use firefox, or explorer (opening folders ) or so


The CPU is runnimg with a useage of 45-60% as soon as the laptop has booted up because Kapersky is upgrading the virus definition file and is running a virus check on the files stored on the hard disk. When Kapersky has finished these tasks then you will see a drop in CPU useage.
NOTE as you install more programs and as your data files increase so will it take longer for Kapersky to carry out the virus scan.

Our emachines el1200-06w runs very slow after sitting idle for any length of time - when we start it up, it runs OK, but later it almost stops - takes very long time to process. we run defender pro 2011...


You need to upgrade your memory to the maximum allowed by your motherboard which in your model is expandle to 4gb of ram max. You should be fine with the cpu that you have, just don't be running high gaming, digital editing, programs. You shouldn't multi task that much either too, because your cpu isn't meant to handle that much of a thread. But adding memory will solve the slow unresponsive promblem you are dealing with. Your computer should accept ddr2 memories. Remember don't go over 4gb, otherwise your computer won't function correctly.

Procesor usage upto 55% wen having opend single window


could point to both hardware and software issues..
but first check software issues. can be due to virus/spyware running.. check taskmanger and lists the processes by cpu % ... this will give you the process which is gobbling up the cpu cycles. make note of the file and track it down in hard disk. you will then have to research what it is for.

if you have a antivirus installled it may be possible that it is virus scanning the disc.

hope this helps

Want to increase the speed of my pc


Hello alanwemple,

Increasing the RAM is surely a good first step to speeding your computer up some. It was my impression that the a340n supports a total of 4GB, so you might want to recheck your manual. And 4GB would certainly be better than 2. As for the CPU, it's upgradeable on this machine, it uses a "Socket 478" chip. Simply remove the old one and insert a new one. But, the CPU is probably not contributing that much to your slowness problem.

Two things that I'd look at first, before I tackled the CPU is video performance and the hard drive. A faster video card with more video RAM can substantially speed things up. And, the hard drive may need some maintenance, starting with defrag. You may also want to do a disk cleanup and while you are at it, run a full virus check and malware detection program such as MacAfee or Norton to make absolutely sure that no bad stuff is slowing you down. And these are cheaper than replacing the CPU.

Hope this helps.

1gb would be the minimum I would run. 2-4gb would be ideal. Vista is a memory and resource hog. Please, upgrade RAM asap! You will enjoy your computer so much more.

RAM Upgrade


See there are limitations to Motherboard to support the amount of RAM. You must check out the motherboard manul to see how much maximum RAM you can have. The second issue as you think the speed will be increased, you are right but only if your softawre uses more memory than you have in RAM, because in this case OS swap the data from RAM to disk and it makes performance slow.

After all you can slightly increase the speed.

Thanks
