Have you any virus protection on the PC? Viruses and malware will cause what you see. Also, check the task manager to see what programs and processes are running, and look for one that is hogging the CPU. Also, if running out of hard disk space, the virtual memory swap will do the same thing.

I would like to improve the speed of my PC. Currently running Soyo KT333 dragon Ultra plus; AMD Athlon 2400+ 2.0GHz; 1.5 GB RAM. What can I upgrade to these days?


Hi.

The motherboard has an athlon xp socket, so you can upgrade your processor to an Athlon xp 2800+, that will give you a boost from 2.0 ghz to 2.250 ghz.

The motherboard can accept ddr333 type ram, to a max of 3 gb's of ram.

The ram increase will probably provide you with a better performance boost than the processor will, and it is most likely alot cheaper as well.

I hope this helps you out, and have a good day.

Help Upgrading Processor


You'll find the information you seek at both the processor company and the motherboard company. As for remounting it in a Compaq case you may run into some issues of the On/Off Switch, power lead, reset button ect...matching up. You might be suprised at how inexpensive a new computer case is. I've seen some as low as $25. Your power supply can be removed and it will fit in your new case. You may just have a easier go of it. Good luck...please leave a rating, thank you kindly

Windows XP won't boot with "CREATIVE SOLUTIONS" PC


That machine is too underpowared to run xp pro.
Windows XP Media Center Edition
1.6 GHz CPU, 256MB Ram, and DirectX 9 hardware-accelerated GPU
you may get it to run but it is going to be dead slow. you will be waiting forever to load any apps with a processor under a gig, and less than 512 mhz of memory, it may work for emulation, but that's even questionable. I don't want to aggrvate you but that config is a decade old. Vista for instance needs at least 2 gigs of ram and a dualcore to run right. sorry bud, if you are dead set on it, the only thing you coula do is juice up the memory, to whatever the board is rated to take, or I would run windows 98, peace

I installed a AMD Phenom(tm) 9950 Quad-Core Processor which runs at a speed of 2.6 ghz but windows xp pro is only reading it at 1.3 ghz. I also have 4 gigs of ram but windows xp is only reading 2.75. The...


There seems to be some sort of incompatibility issue between your motherboard and the Phenom, or maybe some option is not enabled in the motherboard bios that windows is only sensing half of the GHz, like if the processor is only running 2 cores instead of 4.

About the memory diference, that same problem is because the 64bit difference. Unless you have a 64bit XP you won't see the full 4GB. Windows XP is limited to 3 or 3.5GB of ram it can use, you are showing 2.75 maybe because some video board is integrated in your motherboard and it may be borrowing an extra 0.25GB from the 3GB that are usable under windows XP 32bit OS.

Please comment what motherboard you have, since the cpu alone can't be blamed nor configured.

Upgrade ram and maybe processor!


Hey, da,

I would double the RAM first with the same kind, then watch both PC and wife :), what happens. If they both smile, go for the processor but don't jump too high on the MoBo. Check the range on the board for highest speed clock before you buy a processor.

You shouldn't have to reinstall your OS, but back up your important files just in case.

Good luck Dan.
