I have a hp pavilion 524w computer with windstream broadband internet service.It takes the computer forever to boot up and shut down plus using it is very slow. It seems to sit and grind away when I try to connect. My son moved back in with us for a while and I know that he used a lot of programs that I don't need or want. How can I clear some of this mess off without getting rid of something really important?

Which type of wire's are they? If you are talking about mobo onboard speaker and front led cables. It should be written on motherboard itself. You need to take it to bright light and try to find out. If it is speaker cables it should be in spkr word. If iti s front LED then it should be colour coding on motherboard. Good luck with that.
The compatibility isn't with the memory, it's with the motherboard and its chipset. In your case the motherboard is a FIC AM-37 which has an VIA KM266A chipset - an extremely old chipset . The only processors accepted are AMD Athlon XP of the first generation of which you already have the fastest version

The beeps are coming form your computer tower chassis. Your computer either wants you to remove and clean the contacts on the graphics card or it wants you to remove the RAM modules and clean the contacts. Install one at a time in alternating slots. To test if maybe one of the RAM modules is faulty.
Hello Mike, Hi, may I suggest you try first to defrag your hard drive, Im sure when you power on your PC, the hard disk led keeps on blinking, your hard drive may have developed bad tracks and sectors, this slow moving process tends to go forever.
Defragmenting and checkdisk can find faults and bad sectors and tracks that slows down the performance of your PC.
Reformatting should be done if your defragmentation procedure fails to speed up your PC.
Try to run an antivirus program, which may help speed up your PC by detecting viruses, that tends to load forever, or slow down the booting process.
