More trouble with my iBuddie A900! :(

Hi again. :) I upgraded to 512MB RAM as suggested in my post about processor upgrades, but the computer is now running extremely slow, much worse than before with only 256. It also freezes up a lot now, almost always when using an internet browser (either IE or Firefox). Is there a setting in BIOS or Windows or something like that that I've overlooked? I've tried disabling internet plug-ins and that hasn't helped. This computer has only one slot for one memory stick, a PC133. The BIOS version is 2001.

    I don't have a Windows disk, the computer was a gift and it didn't come with one. Is there any way I can get one?

I am having hp 530 laptop with intel core duo inside,512mb RAM,80 gb hard disk.I want to upgrade my processor,ramand hard disk. can i do it ? upto what limit ?


Unfortunately I would have to say no, you won't be able to upgrade the processor. I located a user manual at

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12722_na/12722_na.PDF

According to specifications you can increase the Ram to 2 MB and the hard drive should be a 120GB hard driver Sata

System Memory 1024-MB 533/667-MHz DDR2 SDRAM in one slot
Two SODIMM slots; supported memory 2048 MB2
Operates at a maximum of 533-MHz with 667-MHz memory
Hard Drive 120-GB3 5400 rpm SMART SATA

The processor will be limited to what the motherboard can support and it was designed for that 1.6 Ghz processor. Unfortunately it is very difficult to upgrade processors in laptop machines. I do have to ask how old this machine is. The specification indicates MegaBytes of ram and this is actually very little Ram in today's computing world. Most machines support at least 2 gigaBytes of Ram to start with.

I have a ACEer 5315 model no ICL50 running Windows Vista. To say Vista is **** is an understatement. I want to switch to Windows 7 but guess I will need a lot more RAM for this. Can I upgrade Ram on this...


Hi,
I recommend that you switch to Windows 7 without upgrading your RAM. Windows 7 is a lot faster, better and uses less RAM than Vista. Recommended RAM for running Windows 7 is 1GB but I have installed them on a Centrino 1.5GHz with 768Mb of RAM and they run perfectly.
So make the upgrade to Windows 7 anyway and if you feel that you need more power then you can get more RAM.
Also, download Windows 7 upgrade advisor to check if your pc is compatible. Download upgrade advisor here.

I am using a laptop aspire 3683 wih 512mb ram. But my computer running very slow. Can I upgrade the ram for 1gb. Please let me your suggestion. Thank you.


Yes, you can upgrade it to 1 GB RAM.But I recomend you to change it to 2 GB RAM (two 1 GB RAM).It will boost your performance tremendously.

Consider1 GB RAM with 600/666 Mhz.

Can i upgrade my processor?on my toshiba satellite m55-s135 laptop? I am upgrading the ram from 512mb to 2gb and the hard drive to 200gb.


dont know what processor you have. If you have a celeron M you can probably upgrade to a pentium M without any problem. The ram you should check. I believe that motherboard will only support 1.5 gb. Any more you will be waisting your money.

Im trying to fix up my wife's Dell Inspiron B130 instead of buying a new computer. what is the best processor, and video card upgrade i can do?


You don't want to upgrade the cpu. As for the video card it can't be changed as its build into the laptop motherboard.

I would highly recommend that you instead upgrade the ram memory on the laptop since it will give you a bigger performance increase than a new cpu or video card.

The machine only has 256MB of ram, get atleast 512MB or 1024 /1gb of ram and it will work much better.

Upgrading processor on an iBuddie A900?


i have the same model with 512 ram and no difference with the video. Its the 133 front bus is just too slow for todays video speed. Adobe flash keeps upgrading for the faster computers and outdates the older machines. What i did with my I-Buddie was to take XP off, it weighs it down with all the processing going on in the background. I put Ubuntu on it and WoW! speed is way up again. Video is watchable much improved over XP.
