I recently upgraded to a compaq SR5123WM-B with a AMD Athlon 64 x2 4000+ Processor.. I also have 4 gigs of onboard memory.. Yes.. I know that while I am running a 32 mgz operating system I can only access 3.37 GBs of ram..
I also have 320 gb's of HD space..
Why does my old maching running xp and with a pentium 3 seem to run faster than my Vista??
Vista problems like this offently happens because of viruses,spyware or registry problems. If <a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.improve-pc-tools.com/index.php/dealing-with-windows-vista-running-slow/">vista is running slow</a> you might wanna check for viruses in your PC first.
Every since I upgraded to Vista SP1, I have a periodic problem where, after 10 minutes of use, my machine runs so slow it is useless. For the first 10 minutes after a reboot, it runs normally. The problem is that none of my diagnostics finish before my computer goes into molasses mode.

Hi. Yes, your computer came with 2 gig's of ram in the form of 2 1gig modules of ddr2 ram.
There are 4 slots for memory all together, and each slot can hold 2 gig memory chips in each one, for a total of 8 gig's of ram!
That would cause a serious performance improvement for you.
It also came with a 160 gb hard drive, so if you want to, you can get as larger drive as well.
As far as processors, a dual core, AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Brisbane 2.9GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W processor will fit in with absolutely no bios updates required, so all you would have to do is take the old processor out, put the new one in, and turn the computer on. It will recognize the new processor automatically, and will work right away!
This will have a significant performance boost, possibly doubling the total speed of your computer.
The ASUS A8M2N-LA is the motherboard used by HP for the new D4500e AMD AM2 PC.
Here are the details: Motherboard manufacturer's name: ASUS A8M2N-LA HP/Compaq name: Nodus-GL8E CPU/Processor Socket: AM2 Supports AMD Athlon 64, Athlon 64 X2, and Sempron processors Front-side bus (FSB) 2000 MegaTransfers/second Chipset GeForce 6150 LE chipset BIOS features Award brand system BIOS Keyboard combination to used to enter BIOS: F1 Form factor Micro-ATX: 9.6 in X 9.6 in Memory Four 240-pin DDR2 DIMM sockets, Supports PC 4200 (533 MHz) and PC2 5300 (667 MHz) DDR2 DIMMs, non-ECC memory only, unbuffered Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB* PS - as you can see the rangeis 533 - 667 MHz. I would suggest you call HP support and ask if it will support 800 MHz,
You'll find the information you seek at both the processor company and the motherboard company. As for remounting it in a Compaq case you may run into some issues of the On/Off Switch, power lead, reset button ect...matching up. You might be suprised at how inexpensive a new computer case is. I've seen some as low as $25. Your power supply can be removed and it will fit in your new case. You may just have a easier go of it. Good luck...please leave a rating, thank you kindly
Max speed supported for your mobo is: DDR2-533 You will have to buy (4) 1gb sticks (2gb sticks not supported) To use all four gigs of ram you need a 64 bit os.32 bit only supports 3gb of ram. Hope this helps! Here is the specs :
ASUS A8M2N-LA (NODUS-GL8E) (DDR2-533MHz) Memory
4 (4 banks of 1)

*Actual available memory may be less w/o 64 bit os
Need to look at the motherboard specs along with the processor "Socket". It will usually be a 754 or 939 depending on what your motherboard says. I wouldn't try too fast and set yourself up for disappointment. I would upgrade the RAM before the processor.
