Where did the ram come from? did you buy it or pull it from another computer? its possible the chip is either defective or not for your computer depending on where you got it, its also not that much of an increase so you may not notice it i would suggest getting another 1g stick because yours should take 2g 1 in each slot.

What is the best upgrade cpu for a compaq presario sr5110nx 32 bit vista O.S... ATHLON 64 (single core) without having to go to 64 bit, and/or new drivers ?


The 400W PSU is going to limit your CPU selection to dual-core at best, although you might be able to get away with a higher-end dual-core CPU if your RAM is not ECC and not dual-channel, and you're not running anything serious in terms of a graphics or sound card or a SCSI array.

Given your current setup I'd really look for a 1.6Ghz dual-core Athlon which has a decent amount of KB in its Level 1 and Level 2 cache, but 3MB for its Level 3 cache.

Anything beyond that ballpark of a CPU upgrade is certainly well within the bounds of diminishing returns, and you should look at getting a new PSU, motherboard, and probably RAM (I'm guessing you're using DDR2 RAM currently).

I own a compaq presario 6450nx and I would like to upgrade it. like adding more ram and replace the cpu if its posible, what could be the suggestion?


This is info on your motherboard:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=bph07843
Your system comes with Intel P4 2.53 GHz processor and 512MB ram. total ram could be 1GB, bt adding another 512MD stick. You have Socket 478 and processor would be up to you. The system comes with a 200w power supply so, in an upgrade, you should up the power supply. You have an AGP expansoin slot and, you could upgrade to a graphics card but again, power supply is only 200w. The system as it stands is not Windows 7 compatible. If you incraesed your ram and got a graphics card, you would get better performance.

I have bought a compaq presario 1200ap i want to upgrade the ram what should i use 100mhz or 133mhz some websites say either can u help plz


Does not matter, the laptop runs at the 100 mhz speed so the 133 mhz memory will simply run at the slower speed.

Each day my computer seems to run slower and slower.


Run the commands in your Accessories and also don't forget you need to Defrag and run an Anti-Virus software. The proper programs are under Start>All Programs>System Tools>Disk Cleanup and Defrag. When the housekeeping is done, if your computer is still running slow then the best thing you can do is upgrade the amount of RAM. That will make a noticeable difference.

Please rate this solution.

Ram on the HP 530


Yes a 512 or RAM can run a Vista system but it will be much slower so if you want to be able to use the Vista systme to the fulless better if you upgrade the RAM of your computer to atleast 1 GIG of RAM but 2GIG will be much better so Vista will work smoothly....
