    What CPU is in your PC?

    How much memory is installed?

    How much Free disk space do you have?



    To validate XP, select for more options, then download the key update tool and follow the prompts to validate over the phone.



    You can borrow the Windows CD if you need to reinstall, and make sure you get the key for the CD you are using.

    I hope this helps.

    Good Luck.

Several ways of doing this. As far a software goes install Glary utilities. your can have it installed for you for FREE by going to www.ninite.com

then checking Glary and then clicking on Get Installer. Once it downloads the installer just click on it and it will install Glary Utilities on your computer. Not only does it clean, it defrags your hard and defrags your REGISTRY.

Hardware side:
More RAM is better... 1GB and above...

Perform defrag. on your hdd drive

Slow


First of all try clearing cookies,browser history and cache,avoid running electronic devices at once,upgrade your modem or router to a newer model and have a periodic check in your modem ventilation, or do you use P2P (Peer to Peer) file sharing programs? If so then try turning the file sharing program off, as file sharing programs use up alot of bandwidth some broadband providers limit the speed you can use the internet if you are using file sharing programs.

If you turn off the file sharing program your broadband speed goes back to normal .

I faced the same problem ,after doing this i checked my speed from http://www.scanmyspeed.com apparently my internet speed is faster than before.
If these doesn't apply ,there is a chance you may have a virus on your computer. A computer virus is likely to not just slow your broadband and Internet down but your computer too. ScanmySpeed Check my Internet Speed

Extremely slow running


Slow computer If you have a virus program installed, it is most likely is running a scan on your hard disk. It can slow down your computer especially if you have a large hard drive. After scanning is completed then the computer will be faster.
To make your computer (hard disk) lean and mean, uninstall any programs you do not use.
Also you need to maintain your hard disk by running Disk Cleanup this will remove old temp files and old compressed files etc.
This will reduce the number of files the virus scanner has to scan. Plus running Defrag. this makes your files contiguous so the system can access files off the hard drive quicker because it does not work as hard.. Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out at least once a month.
If you have 512Mb of RAM installed then installing more RAM will speed up your computer. After installing your graphics card, you may need to disable the built-in graphics card in the BIOS for the new graphics card to work properly.

You can speed up a slow running PC by:

do these things with some secure tool such as Intel Software Partner Reginout.

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.

Our PC is running slower and slower, do I need to erase the hard drive, and start over?


If you computer is running very slow , the first thing you can do firts if to rmeove unnecessary program that is installed to your computer to free up some memory on the computer, then if its still running slow cleaning the computer hard drive will definitely make it fast but if you're still not satisfied with the speed after cleaning the entire hard drive upgrading the RAM/memory of the computer will really make it fast...

Hope that helps...........

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.
