#1 answer; add RAM. What's your system specs?

Posted on Feb 26, 2009

  • Seabee Tim Feb 26, 2009

    When you start getting into "upgrade processor", that's starting to borderline on "upgrade PC". Not saying that Josh is wrong, but if you upgrade everything in his list, you could probably get a faster PC at a comparable price, especially if you have these upgrades done professionally. I still say #1 answer is upgrade RAM, I agree with minimum 2gb. Adding RAM is going to give you immediate results, and it's an easy install you can do yourself. Lack of RAM is the most common problem with slow computers.

    What are your system specs, ie, how much RAM do you have, what is your processor and processor speed, how big is your hard drive, and what is your hard drive RPM? What do you use your PC for, ie, what runs slow that you want to be faster?

    The "hardisk" isn't going to make as much of a difference as RAM. For example, if you're only using 25% of an 80 gig hard drive, upgrading to a 200 gig hard drive isn't going to make any noticable difference. The hard drive is the computer's long term memory, it's what stores information for use. RAM (random access memory) is the PC's short term memory, the memory the PC uses to function and operate the applications stored in the HD. If you have an abundance of RAM you can function more processes faster. If your computer has an open RAM slot (which it probably does if you've never upgraded your RAM) you can add RAM to it really easy. The thing is, it's best to match your current RAM card, rather than excede it. For example, if your computer has 1 gig of RAM, you're better off adding another 1 gig RAM card, rather than adding a 2 gig RAM card. That's difficult to explain, but the gist of it is, 2 RAM cards of equal size will function together smoothly.

    There's a door on the bottom of your PC, it probably says "RAM" on it, it probably has a screw in it. Shut down your PC, remove the screw and open the door. If there's an empty slot there, which I'm betting there is, it's available for more RAM. Before you shut down your PC, go to your Control Panel and open "System" ("Classic View"). There you can see how much Memory (RAM) you currently have installed. Match that in your vacant RAM slot to double your RAM, and you will have a faster PC.

Satellite S50-B-15P Hi I want to find out what type of SSD drive is installed in my laptop. I want to up-grade to higher capacity. Thanks

Download SiSoft Sandra. It will tell you exactly what you have and also test every component. The best program by far and has been since Windows 98.

Toshiba Satellite A665 S6067 laptop wont recognize my SeaGate FreeAgent Go 500 Gb. device

I had a similar problem and I had to "Delete Volume" when in DIsk Management. I then had a choice to "Create Simple Volume" which I did, and then a wizard created the correct partitions and assigned a drive letter to my external drive. Everything was them OK.

Take it back to the place of purchase and get a replacement as it is under warranty.
Do not try to fix it yourself as you may void your warranty.

How do I start bluetooth on the qosmio g25-av13?

Try the ff:

1. Are you also using a wireless internet? If you are and you cannot also connect on wireless, make sure that the wireless is enabled on your laptop. On the left side of the laptop there is a on/off switch push the switch to on. (beside the usb port).

2. if it is already on, make sure that the bluetooth is enabled also, you can check it on control panel, system, hardware, device manager, bluetooth, right click on bluetooth driver, if you see enable bluetooth click on it, if you see"disable bluetooth" that means it is already enabled.

3. If the above is already configured, lastly, look for the bluetooth icon (bluetooth manager) on the lower part of the screen on the taskbar/tray if you see the bluetooth icon, right-click on it then click "Enable Bluetooth Radio". Now, if there is no bluetooth icon on the tray at the lower right of the screen, go to Start, Toshiba, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Settings, inside the Bluetooth SEttings, click on Bluetooth, Options, CLick on Enable Bluetooth Power, also, inside the Tray Icon (still inside Bluetooth Settings) select an icon so you can always see the status of your bluetooth on the Tray and you don;t need to do and check everything everytime you cannot connect via Bluetooth.

Hope this helps.

I have doctor antivirus pop ups

Unfortunately, the only way I've found to be completely rid a machine of this is to wipe the hard drive and reload the operating system. This is an advertisement virus and this particular bug leaves several sleepers that lie inactive making it near impossible for any antivirus to find them. Once you get rid of the active virus, one or two, but not all of the sleepers will activate leaving several more hidden and inactive, and what makes it even harder to "get rid of" is that it hides the sleepers in file that your antivirus normally doesn't check on a regular basis, ie... picture files, music, screen savers, etc.. It will also hide them in registry files, so doing a system repair won't work either.
