Hi,
mine was running slow too. Like I'd turn it on and go grub some coffee, than make some toast and then after It'd bring the windows screen on.
If that's the case I suggest to try different hard drive, but my guess it's motherboard issue:

What type of ram can I add to my Compaq EVO 510 CMT and what is the max amount?


DDR SDRAM type Ram i.e. DDR1 with 266mhz speed with DDR266/PC2100 compliance. You can simply ask for DDR SDRAM 266Mhz or you can find online with the similar compliance, DDR266/PC2100 Compliance.

I hope you still have the old one which was installed on the system, if so look at the white sticker, it should be labelled there...

Dell computer.5 yrs.old. Very,very,slow.What can be done? Have dial up internet service. Also, what does memory upgrade mean?


Hi,

There's nothing you can do about your internet speed, dial up is dial up and is known to be slow. If you want fast internet then you would need broadband.

A memory upgrade would speed up the overall performance of the PC. For example: the computer may take 5 minutes to fully boot up and programs taking time to launch. This would not fully resolve but help it to be more responsive.

A memory upgrade is always recommended by me. I expect that your computer can be probably maxed out to 2GB of memory.


Regards.

HP Pavilion dv7 ram upgrade, came with 4gb ram, supposedly is able to upgrade to 8gb, is this possible?


Yes. The specifications say the MAX memory is 8GB

Memory 4096MB Memory Max 8192MB
You should go to Crucial.com and run their online tool for ram upgrades. It will tell you exactly how much and what type of memory to add.

I need to add memory but don't know what I need. I don't want to get the wrong memory upgrade but I had it cleaned out and upgraded, its way to slow to run windows xp with only 256 RAM


First, you need to know the max your computer can hold. Then, simply go and buy them from best buy. I think they will also install it for you. If not, then check out this guide.http://www.helpwithpcs.com/upgrading/install-laptop-memory.htm

Compaq EVO N1020V Not reporting RAM correctly


This sounds as thought he RAM is faulty.

You need to have installed 2 x 512 MB DDR 266 SoDIMMs and not 1 x SoDIMM.

If you have placed 1 x 1Gb SoDIMM in ther EVO this would account for you only seeing 480Mb of RAM.

Upgrading my compaq evo d51s


A ram upgrade could help, however you may need to think about upgrading your CPU also. First check if you can upgrade your CPU. Your best option may be to upgrade to a new computer altogether.

Etower 633id runs very slow. Only has 64MB of RAM.


Normally upgrading bios does not require flashing the bios. But in order to find out the max amount you can upgrade too requires some info off the motherboard. You need to get the model number off the board to look up the info

I have an etower 633 id PC with 64 MB of RAM. It runs pretty slow. I was wondering what was the max amount of RAM that I could upgrade to? And if I would have to flash the BIOS in order to upgrade to the...


your machine is a little on the old side and can only hold a maximum of 256mb. That is 128mb chip per slot. Crucial does not sell it so your best bet would be an ebay search. you do not have to flash your bios to use the max ram, but you should check to see if there are other reasons to do so.
