Re: computer

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.

Can I increase RAM by using some hard drive space

No. XP already does this (simulating RAM on disk) with the swap file. You can override the system settings for swap file size but usually auto is okay. In any case, disks are horribly slow compared to RAM so you're far better off putting more physical RAM in. You'll see a very noticeable increase in speed if your system is currently swapping out a lot.

My computer slow down when i upload any music program like imesh n ima using windows xp

If you have less than 512 MB of Ram that is your problem. Add more ram to increase the speed of the computer. You can get ram here. Just click "Scan My System" and they will tell you what you have and what you can install with the price. Best money you will spend on a slow computer. Also runs disk cleanup and remove all it finds.

If you really only have 256MB of Ram then that would be the first thing to change. I would upgrade to at least 1GB of RAM for XP. There are also many unnecessary services that are loaded on start up. You can find many tips on speeding up XP by shutting down services you don't need.

The memory increase should make a big difference.
