This could depend on quite a few things. has a great tool that will scan your system and find out what is compatible and what will help increase your computer speed. However your bottleneck could also be the processor itself. If you could give me details on your computer I can assist you further.

Pc is very slow

You can speed up a slow running PC by:

-- cleaning system junk
-- optimizing computer services
-- optimizing internet
-- repairing registry
-- defraging registry

do these things with some secure tool such as Intel Software Partner Reginout.

There are some days when this computer works slow

Possible antivirus or windows updates. They usually run in the background so you wouldn't notice when they are running an update. This is especially the case with Windows. It will slow down the internet speed as well as the Pc itself until it is complete. Apart from that, You may have other programs that automatically run without your knowledge which also update. If the probem gets worse, you may want to download an anti spyware program to check for malware that your antivirus software doesn't catch. Best of luck and hope I've answered your question.

Want to increase the speed of my pc

Hello alanwemple,

Increasing the RAM is surely a good first step to speeding your computer up some. It was my impression that the a340n supports a total of 4GB, so you might want to recheck your manual. And 4GB would certainly be better than 2. As for the CPU, it's upgradeable on this machine, it uses a "Socket 478" chip. Simply remove the old one and insert a new one. But, the CPU is probably not contributing that much to your slowness problem.

Two things that I'd look at first, before I tackled the CPU is video performance and the hard drive. A faster video card with more video RAM can substantially speed things up. And, the hard drive may need some maintenance, starting with defrag. You may also want to do a disk cleanup and while you are at it, run a full virus check and malware detection program such as MacAfee or Norton to make absolutely sure that no bad stuff is slowing you down. And these are cheaper than replacing the CPU.

Hope this helps.

sir better to contact your ISP provider or internet provider about this. Sometimes heavily load on their connection will slow the speed of the internet. i experienced that myself.

General Question

It's ok to install all those software, but if your are going to run all of them there is a tendency that the speed of your computer slowdown. Computer also slow if there are unnecessary program installed in your laptop, if it is not needed better have it backup save in a dvd.
That's all.
