Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook
I have a compaq Presario V5214ea
80GB Hard Drive
My Broadband Provided is AOL. I installed firefox onto my laptop, this stopped the AOL form working. So I unistalled firefox. I have not been able to connect to the Internet via AOL or IE7. The Laptop is very slow, not been able to run any scan programs. Used System Recoverey, but nothing has changed . What can I do to ??
First, I would look at puting in more Memory, 128MB is just barely enough to run windows. You need more to really surf the web and use an anti-virus program (ESET Smart Security is a great program that isn't a memory hog like nortonss and Mcafee's)
On your computer you can have a Max of 2GB (2 - 1GB cards. If you ar interested there are about $18.00 a piece and pretty simple to put in. Here is the site for you to puchase them.

First thing I would do is increase the ram in your laptop to at 1 GB. You are only running 128 MB and that is barely enough to run your operating system. Then you added AOL and then you put Firefox on which an absolute resource hog....basically you have an overdraft of the alloted memory. What I would like you to do is this, we need to keep some programs from running at startup so that you can run scans and find out what is happening. You can either reboot the laptop in safe mode, or we can go to a run command and do it that way. My suggestion first and foremost before anything else is get the RAM memory situation taken care of. Your system uses
You have two slots and each slot can hold a 1 GB stick. These sell for about 20 bucks each.
This will take care of 90% of the problem. You can get these at office supply stores, best buy, CompUSA, etc. Or go to crucial.com and they sell them for 17.99 a stick.
Get back to me when the RAM is dealt with.
