The only way you'd be able to increase your current processing power would be to overclock your processor with is usually not recommended or covered under your warranty. The best and easiest way to increase your performance is perform a system upgrade- Find out the highest speed/voltage processor that your motherboard supports, and do the same for ram. Then buy them and install them.

If it just takes a long time to boot up and it's doggy when windows is running then go to start--> run and type in "msconfig" without the quotes. disable everything you don't recognize under the startup tab. it's also good to do a malware/spyware scan on your pc.

I have a dell optiplex G240.its ram is 256 and 512mb.but now 512mb ram doesnt support.what can i do?


Well, there are many different types of Ram (Memory) available for many different motherboards. Your current computer support a maximum of 1Gb of ram. And judging from the date it was released, your motherboard seems as though it only supports DDR Ram. Therefore you may either have to buy another set of ram or buy another computer (used if possible). Although the second option is only valid if you are looking for something that is faster than what you currently have. Personally speaking upgrading the memory for an old build will not give you the best performance out there.

List of Memory Type
Ranging from Slow to fast
-------------------------
DDR Memory
DDR2 Memory
DDR3 Memory
DDR4 Memory

Other Thought's
---------------
Re-seating your Ram(Memory) may help get your 512MB
ram running again, however if your 512MB ram is a faulty module it may fail to work.

Can i upgrade the speed


Yes.

This is why people (Gamers usually), use harddrives that have a spindle speed of 10,000, or 15,000RPM.
Also why people use SSD harddrives. (Solid State Drive)

(Problem is those harddrives have a small storage capacity, in relation to harddrives that spin at a slower spindle speed.

One example; 1TB harddrive that has a spindle speed of 7,200RPM, compared to 10,000RPM harddrive with only 150GB )

To really improve the performance past that Bob, make sure you have the Ram Memory maxed out.

If the laptop for example, has 1GB of ram memory, and will support up to 4GB; this is the way to go.

Also, let's say the laptop uses DDR2 Sdram at 667MHz.
(PC2-5300 that is SO-DIMM)

But can support DDR2 Sdram at 800MegaHertz.
(PC2-6400 that is SO-DIMM)

It is BETTER to have MORE ram memory, than it is to have faster ram memory.

The first memory area for the Processor is the Cache.
(L1, and L2. Newer processors? L3)

This is a small memory area for the Processor.
Operates at same frequency rate ('Speed') as the Processor does.
Therefore it is the first memory area the Processor accesses.

Next in line is the Ram Memory.
Ram Memory typically operates at HALF, of the Processor's FSB.
(Front Side Bus)

Do not have enough ram memory? Then a small memory area is created on the harddrive. VIRTUAL memory.

Virtual memory is typically 1-1/2 times the ram memory.

More ram memory, faster computer.

Next memory area is the harddrive.
IDE (PATA) and SATA harddrives are mechanical.

As such they are way slow, in comparison to the frequency rate ('Speed'), that ram memory operates at, much less the Processor's cache.

SSD harddrive? Still doesn't operate as fast.

Want to speed your computer up even more?
Delete anything off of your harddrive, that you are not using.
(NOTHING Windows, though)

Programs, and applications.
Copy off personal documents.
Personal documents being photos, videos, music, and personal documents you have created, or downloaded.

The more stuff on a harddrive, the slower the computer.
Hit 50 percent full? You start to notice.
Hit 70 percent full? You REALLY start noticing now.

Also use a registry cleaner. (I use CCleaner. It's FREE, and works as well as paid for versions, plus better than some)

Cookies, and fragmented files take up room also.
Delete a program, photo, video, music, whatever; and bits of fragmented files are left over.

The more room on a harddrive, the faster the computer.
Remember back when the computer was new?

Sir I bought Dell Optiplex GX 260 1.8 GHZ, 256 Ram 400 Bus speed 20 Gb hdd machins working very very slow and take more time (4 houre ) for reisntall Windows Xp ser pac 2 how can speed up my...


You can upgrade a PC but in my experience it is far better and is more cost effective to purchase a faster PC. Here is what you do, save all your personal important information from it's hard drive onto a USB flash drive. Now sell this computer and then using the money that you would have used to upgrade it buy a new computer.

You don't want to go lower than a single core 2.4GHz with 512mb RAM. However I do reccomend an AMD computer system. See if you can afford an Athlon 2 X2 250/255 they are very good and don't cost very much. Of course you will need to purchase new components, either from a local computer shop or on the net.

If you want to try to increase the speed of your current PC then you will need to upgrade the RAM to at least 512mb, make sure it is DDR400. The next thing to upgrade is the CPU, I think it is socket 478 so it might fit a 2.4GHz socket 478 CPU must check CPU and mainboard is the same socket or it will not work.

I have pentinum4 intel(R) celeron processor 1.3 GHZ processor. I want to increase the speed of my processor without any hardware change. I have 40 GB HD & 512MB with windows XP RAM.plz help


you cannot change the speed of your processor unless your processor supports overclocking. however your processor does not support that.

if your computer is running slow try upgrading the RAM to 1GB.
also check to see whether you have unwanted applications running in the background

Why my mother boarb ASUS P5P800S did not run for DDR 400 I want computer more faster my DDR I used now is only 256


hi, actually that 400 is not the ram speed. its the ram frequency. DDR ram comes in 3 types of frequency. one is 333hz and another is 400hz. normally people use 400hz. you should not put two kinds of RAM modules with different frequency at same time.
make sure. all the rams you are using are of same speed and same frequency. example use 256 of 400hz with 256 of 400hz. this must help. else revert back to us. thank you sweet rascal

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.

Cache


Cache memory is available inside the processor. So in order to increase the Cache you need to change your Processor.

RAM Speed


There are many things that govern a computer's speed,

1 The speed of the Hardware IE the Processor, Memory and Graphics Card all contribute to this, (It is assumed that this is working well in whatever configuration you have)

2 The Requirements of your software....Win XP SP2 REQUIRES a minimum of 512 Mb Mem to run properly (if it has less than this it will run very slowly even with only basic Applications installed IE Norton/Mcafee Antivirus )

3 Software problems... Spyware / Virus infections affect the speed of your PC as the "Steal" Proccessing power for their own ends, I have personally seen PCs with terrible Spyware infections that they can barely operate at all, to remedy this I would reccomend downloading the free Spyware tool "Spybot Search and Destroy", (just type into google) and for Viruses you could try using Grisoft AVG free.

I hope this helps.
