Max speed depends on your M/board, dear. If the slots are empty, double what you have for a start. WIn XP doesn't care. You can go past 1 Gig.

Check Bios and open up you AGP or PCI apature to maximum allowed.

Also set your shared memory for VGA to 128 MB or more.

For your processor, be careful. Factory settings come with processor settings preset. Check BIOS first, see what it's set at and compare with listed processor speed for your machine. If they match, leave them alone; work on RAM.

I was given an old Dell Precision 340 formatted with windows xp. i want to return the system to its original factory settings. I've tried to follow several different solutions to no avail. I was told...


If the previous owner ever formatted the disk, then they probably wiped out the hidden restore partion if one existed. This link will take to you to a restore disk ordering site. You can order the disks to restore to factory. $29.99
http://recovery-disks.com/dell/precision/dell-precision-workstation-340.html

OR you can go to Dell and find/order restore disks there..

UTorrent Speed Problem


It's a "configuration" option.

But, there are "diminishing returns" -- adding more seeds won't make your downloads any faster.

Compare it to a 4-lane highway -- when there's the "right" amount of traffic, all 4 lanes move quickly.
When there is "too-many" vehicles, traffic slows down, even though the width of the highway (equivalently, the speed of your Internet connection) has not changed.

Memory Issue


yeah you should upgrade. Windows xp 32bit only support up to 3gb memory. You should upgrade to 64bit.
And your specs? Yeah it can run 64 bit operating systems or if you like, use Windows Vista x86 or x64 with Service Pack 1.

I have 20mb broadband but only 300kbs download speed


I personally have never known that changing the MTU setting can speed up your connection, as the MTU is the maximum transmition units that is sent to your pc from each web site and if the MTU setting is incorrect then some web sites will not load on your explorer page, the speed at which you download the page will not make any difference.

If you are supposed to get 20MB speed then you must be on cable and not ADSL as ADSL is a max of 8MB, so i would ring up Virgin or whoever and check the speed you should really be getting.

See these details posted on the netgear site, and you'll notice there is no mention of speed:-

Details About MTU
A packet sent to a device larger than its MTU is broken into pieces. Ideally, MTU would be set to the same — large — value on all your computers, routers and switches, as well as on all the parts of the Internet that you access. But you cannot control the MTU on the Internet, and in practice the optimum MTU size on your LAN is related to your hardware, software, wireless interference, etc.
  • Tweaking MTU size may work well in one situation, but cause performance and connection problems in others.
  • When network devices with different MTU settings communicate, packets are fragmented to accommodate the one with the smallest MTU.
  • Windows XP sets MTU automatically, that is, it optimizes computer MTU for you. This Microsoft article explains resolving lack of connection to a broadband ISP using Windows XP: How-To Configure Broadband Connections Using PPPoE.
  • Once a network device fragments a packet, the data stays fragmented until arriving at the destination computer.
Setting MTU size is a process of trial-and-error: start with the maximum value of 1500, then reduce the size until the problem goes away. Using one of these values is likely to solve problems caused by MTU size:
  • 1500. The largest Ethernet packet size; it is also the default value. This is the typical setting for non-PPPoE, non-VPN connections. The default value for NETGEAR routers, adapters and switches.
  • 1492. The size PPPoE prefers.
  • 1472. Maximum size to use for pinging. (Bigger packets are fragmented.)
  • 1468. The size DHCP prefers.
  • 1460. Usable by AOL if you don't have large email attachments, etc.
  • 1430. The size VPN and PPTP prefer.
  • 1400. Maximum size for AOL DSL.
  • 576. Typical value to connect to dial-up ISPs.

Dell installed on compaq


Hi, you have to use the original CD installer for WinXP that came bundled with your Compaq Presario. Reinstalling with the use of that CD will overwrite all previous installtion (from Dell) and should correctly install the drivers as well. Should the CD be not available, you may want to try and call Microsoft Support and relay to them your problem. You may need copies of proof of purchase and other documents and/or the serial number for the WinXP normally printed on a sticker at the side, back (or underneath for a laptop) of the PC. Another way is to purchase a CD installer of WinXP SP2 and go thru the routine of installing it. Hiope this be of some help to you. Good luck.
