PCs need maintenance from time to time. You would need to remove the temporary files on regular bases. On My Computer left click on drive C (or you OS drive) go to Properties --> click Disk Clean-up (it may take time to bring up the next main window depends on how often you clean). Then check all the checkboxes on Disk Clean-up for C: window --> Click OK --> Delete Files (you don't need any of these files it is all OS related).
On the same property window go to Tools --> Click on Defragment (based on your Windows version you will see different interface here) you have to defragment few times this will help making the disk space more organised the programs will run faster.
Go to Add/Remove program under Control Panel and remove any program you think you no longer need them ( be careful don't remove any microsoft related program unless you know what they are).
Still if you want to do more download CCleaner ( and install (be careful when installing it will ask you to install loads of other rubbish just ignore them and don't accept) it will clean the registry and has more options to optimise PC.

There are many reasons why this notebook may have lost its speed.
First let's start with the Windows flaw of too large a profile - if someone keeps all their music, downloads, videos, etc. in the my documents folder, the system slows down over time due to the profile getting too large, one way to speed things up is to create a folder off the root of c: and moving my documents to that. If you have a huge music folder on the desktop, that is not good practice.
Another thing which may affect the speed is a virus - do a virus check, use online scanners also as 1 scanner is never enough to totally detect everything.
Another thing is that the pagefile.sys file on the root of c: (the file which is virtual memory) gets corrupted and does not delete itself, boot to a live CD and delete it (it comes back automatically).
Another is upgrading to the latest and greatest operating system (which needs higher specs), if you upgraded, that may have affected your speed.
You may need to also run the chkdsk /f command from an administrator command prompt (this fixes disk and file errors which may affect performance).
I now run Linux Mint on my systems and don't have any of these problems, I get all the speed all the time which my system was designed for in a rock solid operating system. Google that if you wish to find out more.

My laptop become very slow ...its 1 gb ram and 160 gb harddisk .... which os i should install please advise

You need to upgrad the amount of RAM.
The 4720 notebook is capable of running up to 4GB or ram on 32bit windows 7 OS

The OS requires 1GB of RAM to run.....

Therefore, you only have enough RAM to run window, and no spare ram that should be dedicated to the graphics and other system operations.

Action needed:
Buy 2x 2GB sticks of Kingston ValueRam and run the laptop on 4GB. It will be much faster than what is needed and should provide fast computer responce.

I have a Gateway computer, model M460E which has 1Gb of RAM and an Intel (R) Celeron (R) M Processor 1.50 GHz and though it has enough RAM with XP, it is slow to warm up. It is encrypted with True Crypt...

First contact gateway or visit their website and findout what the model and part No. of the fastest Intel processor that your motherboard will support is. (Your mothrboard support manual should have this information also). Then try to find one - you might have to try E-Bay if they are no longer manufactured. A faster processor will definitely help.

However incrasing the amount of RAM will help even more. Windows will use all the physical RAM that you can install. Windows will always run faster with more RAM as it will not have to access virtual memory (your comparitively slow hard drive paging file) nearly as much.

Also, If you have the time and a good way to back-up your data files you might want to consider formatting your hard drive and installing a fresh load of your operating system. This is a good idea if you have noticed that the PC has been performing slower and slower over a long period of time. The system registry becomes loaded with no longer needed entries (often from the failure of software removal tools to do a thorough job). Same for the hard drive - even after you defragment it.

Besides, a fresh load would provide you with the opportunity to see if True Crypt is slowing you down to any significant degree. Time a boot of your operating system before installing true crypt and then check the boot time after installing the program.

Can the IBM T30 2366-21U run windows 7?

Am I better off buying a new desktop or upgrading the 512 mem to 2 gig?

IMHO you are far better with the RAM option.

It is a decent spc otherwise for most purpose.

A good cleanup is also always a good starting point.
remove any unused items etc as this will have almost as much benefit as ram itself.

Yes, you can upgrade it to 1 GB RAM.But I recomend you to change it to 2 GB RAM (two 1 GB RAM).It will boost your performance tremendously.

Consider1 GB RAM with 600/666 Mhz.

Slow processing and start up on thinkpad r61

sounds like you have too much data on your hard drive and possibly too much stuff starting up with your computer so use jkdefrag, msconfig, startup control panel and ccleaner to clear and clean up the data on your laptops hard drive.

Use ccleaner first which you can get here
and then defrag your hard drive afterwards using
jkdefrag which is here

msconfig you can access by going to start --> run and type msconfig and press enter or click on ok and then go to the startup tab and stop things running that you dont need to run although using startup control panel which is here would be a lot easier and better as you can check the run keys in the registry as well as the startup and run once keys and make sure only the things you need to run at startup are actually booting up.

Once you have done that see if it is any better and post back

I upgraded the memory from 1Gb to 2 Gb but my laptop's still slow

it can't be, check if the windows is reading 2gb from system under control panel.

to find out if your pc is fast, see if it plays a game faster than before or use a program faster than before
there is no diffrence in using windows itself. example i think in your mind you'd expect to click on my documents and it loads it super fast now with 2gb of ram? no, you're wrong weather you have 1gig or 2gig windows still works the same
the diffrence is Faster file transfer, faster applictions but not a faster windows.

it could also be the norton if you installed, it lowers your speed.

check Task manager, in the performance section
cpu usage should be under 10%
and pf under 500mb
