Vista...Running very slow

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??

Any way of speeding it up?

    Yes I have..  And I scan my system on a regular basis for virus's, adware and assorted bad guys..

    I also defrag my HD periodically..

    This system is so slow.  I am thinking I am going to have to switch back to XP

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.

    Have you monitored your system with Task Manager to see what is hogging all of your resources?

    Was it running slow before you updated to SP1?

    I see your system came with GFX 6150 onboard graphics which means it uses system memory. A PCI-E graphics card may speed things up. And a 250w power supply which is a little weak 500w would be better.



    Also check in device manage to see if your drives are using DMA and not PIO.



    Check Services to see if you have Indexing enabled this is also a resource hog.

Can i convert my Dell Inspiron 532 from 32 bit to 64 bit processing?


Windows will not install if you have more then 4GB of memory. Reconfigure the ram so it only has 4 GB and it should install.

I have a Acer AX1200-U1510A AM2+ Motherboard and i would like to upgrade the processor, ihave 4 gigs of mem and a 1 gig Gigabyte Gt 610 graphics card. I only have a 240 watt power supply what processo


Should work with a processor of the same socket type. I'd seriously upgrade the psu myself. Personally I'd upgrade the motherboard and processor to a quad core, and get the fastest ram, look at ebuyer.com, you can buy a bundle upgrade package for less than you may think. :)

Hello again, Upgrading CPU's


Your board supports socket AM2 CPUs the fastest of which is the AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ dual-core processor at 3.1 GHz.

Your motherboard does not accept socket AM3 CPUs.

It is most certainly. SSE2 was introduced with the Pentium 4 and all AMD Athlon 64's have it.

Processor upgrade


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.

Processor


In a word;no. You'd have to go with a whole new motherboard,etc,and considering the age of this system,you'd be much better off buying even a modest new computer,which will have modern,faster,and more upgradable components.Right now,about any AMD64 is quite affordable.
