Processing speed is wholly dependant on the processor... But if you are looking forward to change the processing speed-> change processor which inturn may lead changing the whole board and other ram, if your processor is an old one.

Adding RAM will help you maximise memory inturn allowing you to open multiple programs simultaneously, but still processing speed is the same until the processor is not changed.

If you want you can have a seperate graphics card which will give you some recognisable boost in performance and speed of applications, yet not a acknowledgable diffrence in processing speed though.

But change in processing speed surely requires yout o change processor. old ones like 1.8 - 2.4Ghz are pin processors and if you wanna upgrade those processors, you have to upgrade the ntire set of board+ram+processor! so should cost you reasonably more than expected

1. use the disc clean up utility regularly to clear temp and internet files

2. regular defragmentation thru system tools in accessory helps in keeping the drives in healthy condition and speeds up the system.

3. Also the Ram is prime factor for keeping the system fast
depending upon the type of your PC usage.

Hoe to improve iphone 3g processing speed... it is so lazy and waste my time too

You cant increase the 3g processing speed if your iphone is stock.
Its possible to increase it if your iphone is jailbroken.

Right now the 3g has a processor speed of 412mhz which is pretty slow on todays standards. Most phones now are 1ghz to 1.8ghz.
Even if you jailbroke the phone. The maximum that u could increase the processor speed is to 550mhz. Downside is that when you increase the processor speed past its stock mhz, the battery will die faster.

Hi! Can I add yet more RAM to my PC?

Whether you will get an increase in speed or not depends on which operating system you are using and what applications you are running. If you are just surfing the web and running spreadsheet or word processing - I doubt you would see much difference. If you go to and let it scan your system - it will tell you what upgrade options you have.

Can I change RAM for COMPAQ- LAPTOP C301TU of 1.66 GHz; 256 MB; 60 GB to improve processing speed of Laptop. Date of purchase 24.12.06

upgrading your ram will not increase your processing speed. You can increase it but with your current setup my first recommendation would be to purchase a new computer, even if you upgrade you won't be happy in the near future with its performance.

How do i increase the speed for pentium(R)4cpu 3.00ghz

you can increase your speed of your processor installed in your computer by adding more memory that your computer or motherboard and processor can support. Sometimes even you have a high speed processor but it needs to have a high speed size of memory also in order cater more processing transactions in your computer. The memory function as the temporary storage of your current program or application you load in your syustem or you run in your computer. So the more memory size you have the more program or application you can load and the more program can be loaded in your memory it can help your computer fast or process more processing transactions in the computer system. So if you want to make your computer fast you have to install a high speed processor at the same time a large and fast memory.
Hope this will help you answer your problem. Thanks

Personal computer problem..

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.

How to increase battery life

90 minutes of battery life is very good compared to most, unless you have the latest fueled battery. Normally a laptop can be set to turn off the wireless adapter when not in use and also the brightness level can be reduced and the processor speed can be set to low, enabling only word processing etc to be able to run at a reasonable speed.
