You've to many programs running in the background. If you did a CTRL-ALT-DEL then hit applications you would see...also the Norton Antivirus eats up a lot of memory. If you uninstalled it and replaced it with AVG Free Edition which you can download from the Internet that would help. You have 4 DIMM slots. Which means you can put 1GB of RAM in each slot. If you did that your system would boot up in less than 30 seconds. You don't have enough RAM that's why it is slow. Upgrade the RAM and change the Anti-Virus and you'll be smokin again..good luck.

What is the ram capacity for a gateway mfatxpnt das 300s


Have I the wrong machine, or is this it?

http://www.recycledgoods.com/product/38323_gateway_mfatxnin-nmz-300s_pentium-4-1.80-ghz,-256-mb-40gb

Not to be crass, but this baby would sell for about $50 around here.
($249? Bahahahahaha!)

http://pcworld.about.net/news/Apr082003id110182.htm

Two Ram Memory slots.
Uses DDR Sdram ram memory. 184 gold plated contact pins. 92 on each side.
One Locating Notch.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

One place states DDR Sdram at 266MegaHertz.
(PC2100)
The other states DDR Sdram at 333MHz.
(PC2700)

Makes me think it will support PC2100, and PC2700.
(But don't mix them)

TOTAL maximum amount for motherboard seems to be 512MegaByte.
That would be two 256MB sticks.

Seems there is also a model that uses SDR Sdram. (Just known as Sdram, usually. And that is erroneous)

Uses PC133 (SDR Sdram at 133MHz)

Either way though, the total maximum amount is 512MB.

Talk about a hard computer to look up specs on! Lol!

You get this thing running, post back in a Comment.

I would like you to download a tiny program called CPU-Z.

With it we'll find out what the motherboard chipset is; specifically the Northbridge chip, and see what the total max ram memory support, really is.

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

(Free, NO junk attached)

I can guide you in downloading, installing, and using.

I'm just going to guess, but I'll bet it's an Intel motherboard, and uses an Intel 845GE chipset. (Motherboard chipset)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

The Northbridge chip being an Intel part number -
Intel 82845GE, (Hidden under an aluminum Heatsink),
and an Intel 82801DB Southbridge chip. (ICH4)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Southbridge_8xx_chipsets

The Southbridge chip is probably exposed, with no Heatsink sitting on it.

No, you cannot upgrade to a core 2 duo with that motherboard because it is a socket 478.

I have intel pentium celeron 1.70ghz 256mb ddr ram, i wana upgrade it to P4, i got 8284g motherboard


8284G tells me nothing unless I want to hazard a guess, and I don't.
I like to post factual information.

8284G could be a pre-built computer manufacturer number on a label, that is stuck upon the motherboard manufacturer's printed model number, on the motherboard.

All pre-built computers have their motherboards made by a motherboard manufacturer, they do not make their own.

Or it could be a printed model number on the motherboard, but refers to the pre-built computer manufacturer model number, that they wanted printed on. Printed on for them by the motherboard manufacturer.

It could be a reference to a part number on a chip of the motherboard. An Intel 8284g which is a graphics controller chip. (Chip and chipset are slang terms for Integrated Circuit, or IC)

http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/intel845g/sb/cs-009072.htm

However though, the Intel 8284G graphics controller chipset is usually used in conjunction with the Intel i845 chipset family.
(845, 845E, 845GL, 845G, 845GE, 845PE, and 845GV)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_Chipsets

The Intel i845 chipset family supports Intel processors that have up to a 400MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (400MHz FSB), and some of the Intel i845 chipsets will support processors with up to a 533MHz FSB.

So now let's look at the Intel Celeron 1.7GHz processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Celeron_microprocessors#.22Willamette-128.22_.28180_nm.29

1) Based on the Willamette-128 Core
2) Based upon the 180Nanometer architecture. (180nm)
3) Uses a 400MHz FSB
4) Uses 1.7 Volts (DC)
5) Uses the Socket 478 processor socket. (Processor has 478 pins, processor socket has 478 socket holes)

Based upon the processor information, and processor information only, you could use an Intel Pentium 4 that has a maximum frequency rate of 2.0GHz, and uses a Socket 478 processor socket.
I also believe it should be based upon the Willamette Core. Reasoning is that the Willamette Core Intel Pentium 4 processors, use 1.75 volts.

The next generation of Intel Pentium 4's are based upon the Northwood Core, and the 130nm architecture.
They use 1.475 to 1.525 Volts.

I don't know if you would install one of these Intel Pentium 4 processors, and your BIOS would automatically recognize it, and set the voltage to match. If not, the processor would burn up due to too much voltage.

What would you gain if you installed a Pentium 4 2.0GHz processor?

Intel Pentium 4's have twice the cache that a comparable Celeron does.

Cache. Crude explanation:

You are writing a thesis, and you need more information. The information is located in books, which are in the basement in a box, and there is no light in the basement.

Down you go with a flashlight in hand, locate the box, and look through the books until you find the book you need.
Back upstairs you open the book, and find the page/s you need for your information.

You find that not all the information you need is located in that book, and back downstairs in the basement you go, flashlight in hand.

OR, you press a few keys on your keyboard, of the computer in front of you, and have your information is seconds.

Low cache is the basement scenario.
Large cache is the computer scenario.

The processor cache is a small memory area for the processor. It operates at the same frequency rate as the processor, therefore it is the fastest memory area available for the processor. It is also the first memory area the processor 'sees'.


Ram memory is next, followed by the harddrive. The harddrive is slower due to it being a mechanical device. (SSD or Solid State harddrives are faster than the mechanical IDE and SATA harddrives. Still not as fast as Ram Memory though)

The .3GHz increase, and the cache increase will be a slightly noticeable difference.
Enough to "Write home to mom about?"
Nope. Not IMHO.

You probably won't notice any increase when on the internet, or doing school/business work.
You differently won't notice any real increase when gaming.

To summarize:
The amount spent, and the time looking, for an Intel Pentium 4 processor that is 2.0GHz, and based upon the Willamette Core, just won't be worth your trouble.
Unless someone just gives you one.

Upgrade of RAM


184 pin DDR DIMM is the correct information :) The bus speed of the ram would range from PC 2100 - PC 3200. I assume the Max amount of ram will probably be 2gb though unless your motherboard specifies a higher amount.
