    No. Modern operating systems and programs are too resource intensive to run well on a pentium 3, even web browsers and email clients are too slow.

The only feasable fix for this is to upgrade your memory, hopefully your system uses DDR memory in which case you can still find it at reasonable pricing, if you have SDRAM (pc100,333 etc) you may have a more difficult time locating it though many computer shops may have some used memory of this type in stock.

My celeron 2.8 ghz 448mb ram is too slow, why?


Not enough memory.

Slow Windows Machine! Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). High CPU levels causes hang ups like freezing. Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate. Consider increasing RAM. Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.

Humminbird 798 has erratic gps speed readouts at slow speeds between 1 and 3 miles per hour. Speeds bounce up and down between 0.1 and 3.0 mph even when sitting in the boat in my driveway!


I had the same problem. I talked to 3 different technicians on the Humminbird support line about it. All 3 of them confirmed that this is how their technology works. They ping the GPS satellites continuously, and at low speeds the GPS accuracy causes the speed measurement to fluctuate wildly. It smooths right out when you go faster than 3 MPH, since your boat moves far enough at that speed that the GPS accuracy is no longer a problem.

Seems like they could easily overcome this issue by averaging GPS readings over a longer time period at low speed (i.e. give the boat enough time to move far enough to eliminate the accuracy issues), but they don't do that.

It was a big issue for me since I do a lot of trolling at low speed and need an accurate speed indicator, so I returned the product and bought a Lowrance instead. Lowrance doesn't have this issue.

Theyare telling you that your computer takes PC-100 memory at a clock speed of 222Hz. This is memory for older, slower, Pentium III computers. It wiil run Windows Xp Pro on a pentium III at a fairly good speed if you install at least 512MB and have a hard drive with 30GB of disk space. This memory shipped with the pentium III that usually had a HD of 10GB or less in computers made around 2001-2002.
