Get a virus sweeping program, and see if there is a virus or worm hiding in the computer as these will drastically slow the computer down even with more ram.

768 meg is the most you can put in the 5000 ..your system only has 128 meg so 768 would be a considerable improvment .... "crucial.com" is a great company to get reliable memory and information ... here is their page on your computer

I incerased the ram from 128 to 256 but it still


Dude!

It seems that video card on the computer is consuming the rest of 64 MB memory.

Get into the CMOS of the computer and reduce the video card memory.

Hope, it helps.

My blackberry stopped working after i put a micro sd card in


I would be more concerned as to the source you chose for the music and pictures you loaded onto your micro sd card, as depending upon the KIND of music and pictures and the tendency of such sources as you chose to provide your system with viruses..........

Remove the SD card, immediately and get your phone scanned for viruses along with your PC given the fact that all are apparently infected.

Video stream is jumpy .Download and burn movies that freeze up


How much free hard drive space and memory is in the laptop? Are you running anything else while the burn occurs? Have you tried a slower burn speed? DVDs hold more than 4 gigs of data. In addition to burning the video to the disk, the files are being encoded. There is really no practical way to speed this up. Make sure youre not running any memory intensive programs during the burn. 256 megs of memory is feasible, 512 megs or more would be better. Hard drive space--you must have free space on your drive at least double the size of the files youre burning.

Video feed keeps freezing up.


Normal 0 There are a number of things that can cause the computer or the camera to freeze up.
First I’d check to see how much memory is installed in the computer. It takes additional memory to operate the camera.
Hope this helps. Bud

Computer Freezing


I have built several gaming computers and if I had your problem, the first thing I would try is to add a stick of memory.Then I would get me a graphics card with some memory built on the board (256 meg). You motherboard should run a pci graphics card with no problem.

Hi, Based on your post/description: Problem 1 - experience has shown me that most of the time freezing is caused either by memory,video card or driver/software. Since you have reinstalled windows, that should rule out driver/software. Likewise, since it has a built-in video (Via-S3 @ 32mb) video can also be ruled out; not unless of course if you have installed an AGP video card (which should be 4X @1.5v). If you have, try removing it first and run the PC with the built-in video just to determine if the video is causing the freeze/crash/hang. That leaves us the memory, as shipped this brand/model only has 128 MB DDR or SDRAM but as per your post the mem is 640mb so big chance that you have upgraded/replace/added mem say 128 + 512? Here's the issue, your PC uses KM266 chipset with an FSB of 266, big chance the original mem is 266 or 333 but the added mem would be something else? You have to check that its rating should be the same as the other/original memory. Both memories should be the same speed. Am not sure if your motherboard also uses dual channel memory, but if it does maybe it will be better to have 2 X 256 or 2 X 512 rather than 128 + 512 (max is 1G). Problem 2 - Sometimes Windows installer does not completely recognize features of mb/chipsets, you simply have to install the inf, drivers, updates for the motherboard. They are available at http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00021854&dlc=en&product=326832&lang=en& Good luck and hopes this be of some help or ideas to you. Pls post back how things turn or for further information. Kind regards.
