Increasing computer speed is a relative item. Depending on the state of your machine several items could help. None of the following changes are likely to dramatically speed up a machine, but they may change a mildly annoyingly slow machine into one with performance that is acceptable. Or most likely help return your machine to the speed it had when you purchased it.

Removing viruses , spyware and various malware can increase perceived speed by eliminating applications you probably do not want executing on your computer. There are free products as well as purchased products that perform these functions with varying degrees of success. Companies such as Trend Micro, F-Secure and Symantec, Panda offer free online scanners for a quick cleanup or second opinion and purchased products for continuous testing. ClamAV is an open source product (free) as are Spybot, Spywareblaster. Lavasoft's Adware offers a free and paid version of a adware removal tool. There are many more viable and suitable applications in this area. Some (limited) free games and applications may be broken by products like spybot so care should be taken in using that product if you desire the use of the related applications.
Eliminating startup applications you do not use or do not use often could reduce both physical and virtual memory pressure. Many of the exist in the systool bar area on Windows XP and often within a preferences menu windows can be instructed not to start them when the computer boots.

Cleaning up unneeded files on the hard drive and purging caches after closing or as you close web browsers could reduce issues with a nearly full hard drive. Temporary files tend to get left on the machine and are not cleaned up unless specifically requested by the users. Temporary Internet files when there are multiple users of a machine are kept by user so cleaning these up when closing a browser helps all users. (Using proper care and removing unused applications (often demos) loaded by the factory can reduce disk usage -- make sure you understand what is not needed before doing this or you may break your machine and utilize uninstallers to do the work do not start deleting application files using the trash can/recycle bin)

Compacting (not compressing) files on your hard drive periodically could improve disk efficiency and simplify file allocation because larger blocks of free disk space exist.

Compressing files on a hard disk if it is running out of space slows a computer because compressed files must be decompressed before they are used. Purchasing a second or larger hard disk (and transferring your files) so compression is not used can speed up a computer. Not all hardware works in all machines -- assure any hardware upgrades purchased are compatible with your machine.

Running less applications at one time can speed up some slower computers.

Some motherboards will accept faster processors -- but that change would require considerably more technical expertise than the above solutions. and not all processor speed increases are compatible with the existing memory. Likewise some (and limited) cases faster memory can allow the processor to run faster as it allows the processor to reduce it's wait time for memory.

I want to increase the speed of Which type of ram should I use to increase speed of my pc ?

RAM will not increase the speed of your computer. The processor on the motherboard provides a given speed, such a 3 GHz or whatever. It is possible, however, that you need more RAM if you run too many programs or are playing games that need lots of RAM. Go to your manufacturer's website and look up the specs - it should tell you how much total RAM your motherboard will support as well as which type. Go to control panel, then to system. How much ram you have will be listed there. Once you have this information, you can decide if you want to buy more. I have found it is usually best to get RAM all at the same time, from the same place.

I have a DELL with XP-Home Edition - version 2002 service pack 3, Intel(R) - Pentium(R) 4cpu 2.66ghz, 2.66ghz, 512 MB of RAM My daughter plays games and has 24 of them in the computer - she tells me I...

Hello, Jim.

Dell's official position is that the maximum memory for this PC is 1 GB. But, it may be able to support 2 GB, per Intel's specs.

But, to answer your question - yes - you can increase your memory amount to 1 GB. Since the system has 2 memory slots, you could conceivably have (2) 512KB modules (total 1 GB). If your system already has 1 module of 512 KB, you could add another. Just be certain it's the same type and speed.

Or, you could have a 1 GB module.

I don't think that your computer's life is in jeopardy, but additional memory always helps the speed of your computer.

Hope this helps.

I need to know if the CPU speed can be increased to 1GHz or over and that I have put in 2 memory modules of 128MB onto it but only 128MB appears on the System Properties. Irvin.

You are confusing 2 things, CPU speed and Memory or Ram speed.

To keep things straight forward, cpu speed can only be increased by replacing it with a faster cpu.

Ram, as you can see, can be increased by adding faster ram modules.

Go to either of these websites:-

Enter *********** board details or request they scan your computer. Check all the information offered, they will tell you what type and how much ram your motherboard can use.

If you can't increase your ram speed to more that 1Gb, I would suggest it time to invest in a new motherboard/PC rather than spending more on RAM.

There can be a whole load of reason why your second stick of ram doesn't work.

1) it could be broken.
2) It could be the wrong type.
3) You may need to update your Bios to accommodate it. Though this is very unusual.

I have pentinum4 intel(R) celeron processor 1.3 GHZ processor. I want to increase the speed of my processor without any hardware change. I have 40 GB HD & 512MB with windows XP RAM.plz help

you cannot change the speed of your processor unless your processor supports overclocking. however your processor does not support that.

if your computer is running slow try upgrading the RAM to 1GB.
also check to see whether you have unwanted applications running in the background

Will additional RAM increase the speed of my computer. I have the original 512mb?

Increasing the RAM on your PC will considerablly increase of your system. The RAM is your computers work sheet. Whatever you see on the screen of your computer is first stored on the RAM. If the RAM is small, it gets fill easily with data. Older data on the work sheet not being currenty accessed is move to the temporary area on the hard disk. When this data is needed the older data move to the same temporary area for this data to be displayed. This impacts on the response time of the PC which you see as the system bring slow.
Inceased RAM will increase the work sheet area and reduce the rate data is move to the Temporary area of the Hard disk thereby improving the PC Speed.

More importly if you wand to improve the speed of your system, check the applications you are running against the system requirement of these application. Follow the recommended system configuration for all the application and you system speed will not be impared.

Computer running very slow


Ok, firstly, the ram will not extend the life of your laptop, it will only give a slight increase in the process speed of your laptop, depending on how much you add.

You can buy the ram modules you need at any computer hardware store, they will instruct you on the best prices and how to install it. You can also try to buy it online(Ebay) where you will somwtimes get a better deal.

Kind regards

I do not know which model of compaq deskpro I have, But I have used a couple ram cards from another compaq... it increased the ram but the video(from youtube for example) freezes... what can I do to fix it...

If you added more ram to the computer that is a slower speed, the memory will run at a lower speed overall. Even if one stick is faster, they will run at the speed of the slower memory. I would check that. Sometimes it slows your computer down to increase the ram if you decrease the speed.
If its the same speed, you can usually increase your video dedicated memory in the BIOS settings.
Good Luck!

Personal computer problem..

The only way you'd be able to increase your current processing power would be to overclock your processor with is usually not recommended or covered under your warranty. The best and easiest way to increase your performance is perform a system upgrade- Find out the highest speed/voltage processor that your motherboard supports, and do the same for ram. Then buy them and install them.

If it just takes a long time to boot up and it's doggy when windows is running then go to start--> run and type in "msconfig" without the quotes. disable everything you don't recognize under the startup tab. it's also good to do a malware/spyware scan on your pc.
