Check your swap file, is there enough room on the partition/drive?

    you need to go to the properties of your computer, navigate to the advanced tab and find out if the page file is locked at a fixed ammount and look at the properties. The standard for the page/swap file is 1.5 times the ammount of physicall ram installed.

    This means that at 4GB, you should have a range up to 6GB for your swap/page file. You also need to find out which partition that the swap file is assigned to and look to see if it has been put on a partition that does not have enough room and change the location of it.

    first af all, make sure that you have a good antivirus and malware program installed and updated and run them/it just to be safe.

    Malware_Bytes is free and very good, this is always the first place to start.

Can i convert my Dell Inspiron 532 from 32 bit to 64 bit processing?


Windows will not install if you have more then 4GB of memory. Reconfigure the ram so it only has 4 GB and it should install.

First, your pc5300 memory runs default at 6300Mhz, not 333. Perhaps your motherboard Front Side Bus line is 333 in which case the memory will drop to that speed, but if the FSB and memory match speed, then it would run at 6300. Since you have an older unit, I would suppose you are running only 333, and that is average speed for that config. In addition, you are only running 1 gig RAM, which is woefully inadequate for Windows 7, so everything you do is going to be slow.

This is my daughter's computer. It freezes, it shuts down, it skips characters when typing. She is a senior in high school and is getting so frustrated trying to do her homework!


Download a copy of CCleaner and run a cleaning on it. After that use the registry cleaning function on it (making sure to save a back up of the registry of course). Do this once a month.

There is a RAM testing program that you can download and install onto a thumbdrive that will test your RAM to make sure if isn't faulty. Memtest86+ is a good one. You can download it here. I have used the "Auto-installer for USB key" to create a thumbdrive that will load the program when you start the computer. Once you have installed it on the thumbdrive, restart the computer with the thumbdrive in, and set the BIOS to load the USB before the HDD in the boot device order. (generic directions here) If you can, test only one stick of RAM at a time. This was if there is a problem detected then you will know which stick of RAM is the troublemaker.

Finally, download a good disk defragmenting program and defrag the hard drive.

Sir i have intel pentium 3 processor support antivirus


Hi

Anti-Virus Programs will work with this processor, running Windows XP.

For newer Operating systems, there might be a problem with speed, due to the limitations of the processing power of the processor.

The motherboard for this Computer is likely to take old SD-RAM or even older EDO RAM, which are difficult to find at a reasonable price nowadays, because they are rare.

You should aim for a motherboard with 4 RAM slots to accept as much RAM Memory as possible.

Suggested good quality, low resource usage antivirus programs:

AVAST! (www.avast.com)

AVIRA (avira.com)

BULLGUARD (www.bulguard.com)

I hope this helps.

I installed a AMD Phenom(tm) 9950 Quad-Core Processor which runs at a speed of 2.6 ghz but windows xp pro is only reading it at 1.3 ghz. I also have 4 gigs of ram but windows xp is only reading 2.75. The...


There seems to be some sort of incompatibility issue between your motherboard and the Phenom, or maybe some option is not enabled in the motherboard bios that windows is only sensing half of the GHz, like if the processor is only running 2 cores instead of 4.

About the memory diference, that same problem is because the 64bit difference. Unless you have a 64bit XP you won't see the full 4GB. Windows XP is limited to 3 or 3.5GB of ram it can use, you are showing 2.75 maybe because some video board is integrated in your motherboard and it may be borrowing an extra 0.25GB from the 3GB that are usable under windows XP 32bit OS.

Please comment what motherboard you have, since the cpu alone can't be blamed nor configured.
