Question about Acer Aspire Computers & Internet
I have the cpu/ram meter on my desktop and my laptop slows up a lot and often and I can see that it is the cpu, not the ram, that is getting maxed out. How can I prevent it and /or how can I find out what is causing it? Thanks,
The RAM is the processing memory of the CPU. The system is probably hitting 100% RAM use because you have malware that is running in the background. A less likely case is that you have so many jobs automatically loaded at startup that memory is being accessed to handle all the different processes. I would suggest loading a good malware cleaner like MalwareBytes and running a system scan. If you have a number of malware items (I have had users with as many as 1500 malware items or as few as 2 malware items), the system will be bogged down because the items are running activities in the background. The malware scan should help identify the malware items and offer the option to delete the items (as always make sure you have backed up critical files before running a scan and removing malware items). After removing the malware items (if any exist) and rebooting your system, you should notice an increase in system speed and a reduction in static-period RAM use. As a side note, cleaning the system will not guarantee prolonged periods of trouble-free RAM processing. Malware tends to come from obscure Internet sites that are frequented and will often return if those sites are revisited.

SOURCE: CPU Upgrade Help Compaq M700
All M700 CPUs are SMT (Surface Mounted Technology) = soldered onboard. You have to replace the whole mobo if you wanna upgrade. Suggest you get the whole bottom piece from eBay - easiest way for upgrade! The mobo also has a VR sub-board which I was told is different between PII->PIII 500mhz, PIII 600mhz -> PIII 750mhz, and PIII 800mhz-> PIII 1Ghz. So better replace the entire lower piece - lowerfixer.
