Above is a website that tells you exactly what type of memory you need. You need DDR2 PC5300 Desktop Memory. I would recommend getting two 1-gigabyte sticks of this type of RAM.

What is the best upgrade cpu for a compaq presario sr5110nx 32 bit vista O.S... ATHLON 64 (single core) without having to go to 64 bit, and/or new drivers ?


The 400W PSU is going to limit your CPU selection to dual-core at best, although you might be able to get away with a higher-end dual-core CPU if your RAM is not ECC and not dual-channel, and you're not running anything serious in terms of a graphics or sound card or a SCSI array.

Given your current setup I'd really look for a 1.6Ghz dual-core Athlon which has a decent amount of KB in its Level 1 and Level 2 cache, but 3MB for its Level 3 cache.

Anything beyond that ballpark of a CPU upgrade is certainly well within the bounds of diminishing returns, and you should look at getting a new PSU, motherboard, and probably RAM (I'm guessing you're using DDR2 RAM currently).

Upgrade HP Compaq Presario F750US - CPU, GPU & RAM


You'll spend more money trying to upgrade this laptop then it would cost to just buy a better used one on eBay. Probably even spend more that it would cost to buy a new low end computer. Save yourself the headaches and time and buy a NEW laptop.

My computer is very slow. The RAM is 512MB and 128MB. Is there something I can do to imoprove its performance? Its speed?


Buy more RAM. You have a total of 640 mb, which is **** by todays standards. That was state of the art like a decade ago. Today, most computers have 2 gb+ram

Slow pc


Hello juliet_34x,

Whats also important to perform when you up your memory to 2 gig is to adjust your Paging File as well. At 2 gig of primary memory, you will need to adjust the Paging File to 3000 (2 GB X 1.5) and Maximum size to 4092. In addition, if your computer was performing slow before the memory upgrade, you should perform disk cleanup and defrag (this will help alot).

Hope this helps and good luck.

How to upgrade a new compaq presario SR2150NX?


Add more RAM, 512MB ram will slow your computer down because when you run out of ram the computer uses the hard drive as vitrual ram. I have 4GB in my Vista machine and it is faster than XP.

Another suggestion is to turn off the hard drives indexing. Right click on your "C" drive and unhook the "index this drive for faster searching" box.

SLOW AND SKIPPING


You will probably need to stop some background programs to free up some RAM or you can always buy some more RAM memory.
