If you open up Windows Explorer, right-click on 'My Computer' if you are running XP or 'Computer' if you are running Vista and select Properties from the context menu, you will be presented with a window that displays information about the installed processor and clock speed as well as the amount of memory installed in the computer.

Again in Windows Explorer, if you right-click on Local Disk (C:) and select Properties, you will be presented with a window that give you information about the amount of used space, free space and total space on the hard disk.

The 2200 has a MediaGX 180 MHz processor 16 megs of ram you can upgrade to 80mb maximum. If you can even find any that will work with this system. And 1.6 GB hard drive. And good old Windows 95. The computer is pretty much stone age equipment by today's standards. But A fresh install with the restore cd that came with it. And keeping installed applications to a minimum would give some of the proformace it once had back. In all honesty Upgrading the ram if possible and a larger hard drive and coupleing that with a linux distro aimed at older hardware could potentially breathe life back into that machine you have. Im not saying it will be powerful machine and it may or may not increase proformance. But That is the method I use when I run across old hardware people just toss out and is still in working order.

Presario sr1710nx what type memory


Crucial.com has an excellent wizard for locating memory.
Computer memory upgrades for HP Compaq Presario SR1710NX Desktop PC...

Lists memory compatible with your machine.
Memory Type: DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 4GB
Slots: 4icon_note.gif Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

I have also found that the memory occasionally is not recognized. To fix remove the ram and clean electrical contacts with a clean pencil eraser. (Rub the contacts to clean.) Then replace memory. (My machine failed to boot, cleaning the contacts fixed the problem.

Very slow, old, compaq presario 5000


Beyond adding memory, there really isn't anything you can add or change in the hardware to gain any real speed. Older computers don't support the technology to go as fast as the newer ones.

Other than being slow to start up and load programs, these older machines are still useful. For Internet access, email, word processing and other applications like that, computer speed isn't much of an issue anyway. The people who really need processor speed are gamers or users of power applications like animation or music or big number-crunching financial packages. I've fixed up systems like yours for parents who love the fact that about all their kids can do with them is schoolwork.

Bottom line, though, is that it would be better to put money into a new computer instead of trying to upgrade this one if you truly need more speed.

Slow pc


Hello juliet_34x,

Whats also important to perform when you up your memory to 2 gig is to adjust your Paging File as well. At 2 gig of primary memory, you will need to adjust the Paging File to 3000 (2 GB X 1.5) and Maximum size to 4092. In addition, if your computer was performing slow before the memory upgrade, you should perform disk cleanup and defrag (this will help alot).

Hope this helps and good luck.

Hi

You can get the RAM chips from any comptuer stores. Make sure that you know the RAM specifications on your computer otherwise the the RAM chips that you buy may not be compatible with your computer.
Also check if your computer's hardware is compatible with 1 GB RAM.
