    What do you mean by a newer version of XP? Do you mean a newer service pack?

I don't it's your windows system is getting slow, what about your CPU this is old too. 1.7GHz are not quite to use anymore using windows XP2 or XP3, only SP1 can handle it.

The best ways to let your HP Computer run faster it minimize install some programs on it and install Windows Tweaker to help your windows system boost up.

Good luck!

Looking over at crucial.com it says that your A30 can use PC2700 and PC3200 DDR. Maybe go other there and see if your new ram matches what they sell. I know it's not much but maybe a start.

I currently have just 256mps of memory ram on my dell dimension 2400. i want to upgrade. my manual says the maxium is 1024 mbs. can i install 1gb of ram or should i get 512 mbs? i have windows xp os. thank...


1024 is 1 gig of ram. Some older motherboards require you to put in ram in pairs but I don't think your system is one of those but if you have manual or can download manual you should check to be sure. If you don't need a pair then yes you can remove the 256 meg stick and add a 1 gig stick or you can put in 2 512 meg sticks. Should run a lot better as windows recommends at least 512 megs of ram.

Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-S405 Memory upgrade problem


This usually happens when the laptop is not able to take more then a certain amount of memory, as the system BIOS does not support higher. By saying ACPI as the blue screen, that tells me that the power subsystem does not 'like' having more then 512MB of RAM. I am 95% sure this is your BIOS because of that information. Check and see if you can find a BIOS upgrade for your computer model, and that might fix the issue, if an update is available.

This website is the details of your motherboard from intel site you can have look in to that the processor 3.2 ghz is supported but L2 cache must be 512 kb only(you are trying with 1mb one it is not supported) your processor doesnt suits the motherboard specification as i have told it previously ..

here are list & details of supported processors below:

intel® Pentium® 4























3.40 GHz 800 MHz 512 KB P20 or greater All board revisions support these processors. 3.20 GHz 800 MHz 512 KB P06 or greater 3 GHz 800 MHz 512 KB P05 or greater 3.06 GHz 533 MHz 512 KB P02 or greater 2.80C GHz 800 MHz 512 KB P05 or greater 2.80 GHz 533 MHz 512 KB P02 or greater 2.66 GHz 533 MHz 512 KB P02 or greater 2.60C GHz 800 MHz 512 KB P05 or greater 2.53 GHz 533 MHz 512 KB P02 or greater 2.40C GHz 800 MHz 512 KB P05 or greater 2.40B GHz 533 MHz 512 KB P02 or greater 2.26 GHz 533 MHz 512 KB P02 or greater

If you cannot see the speaker icon in the taskbar, click on Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices and tick place icon in the taskbar. That's if a driver has been installed for your sound device which is a creative sounblaster I think.
