No and id highly recommend u dont mess with ur registry on ur system. can lead ot many problems down the road.. ive been told by many friends of mine that registry cleaners tend to remove important data under the registry editor.. i wouldnt use a registry editor.

yeah and the only way to add more ram and have it work is the ram card has to be phyiscally on the bus port on the motherboard no other ways will work.

If your computer is running kind of sluggish, you can fix it with an easy clean up of your registry. Here's a link to a free scan that works well:

You could POTENTIALLY hook up an external hard drive and go into properties and change the Page File usage, however I would not recommend it. Page file acts like ram but it is extremely slow and usually not needed anyway

Hello! I have ViewSonic 10. It cannot see an external HDD. It was correctly (I suppose) formatted but anyway the problem exists. It sees a USB card ok.


The problem is that the Viewpad 10 does not have enough power at the USB port to push a standard external HDD. You will need an externally powered drive or a two to one usb cable for this to work.

Windows 7 64bit with support for USB 2: when I plug my pendrive in a USB port, there's an advice saying that if I plug it into a USB 2 port, it will perform faster. But how do I know which port is USB 1...


I hate this message.
You can use a program like PC Wizard from CPUID that will tell you what all of you pc specs are.

From your specs you may not have usb 2 ports.
Device manager should also say what usb ports you have.

The best ports to use are the ports on the rear of the computer, front usb ports sometimes dont have as much power to drive external hard drives or high drain devices

WHAT COMPUTER PART CAN I USE IN MY NEW COMPUTER?


If you are talking about a desktop, you may be able to add a USB card to it, which will give you USB functionality. But, if your computer is *this* old, you might be better off getting a new one anyways just for the huge performance increase. You are always able to add more RAM to it, upgrade hard drive, etc. Adding memory is the single most upgrade that helps a computer be faster.

Considering that your old computer doesn't have USB ports, there likely is very little that you will be able to use on the new one. Several leaps in technology have occured.

But, to answer your question, you can likely move the hard drive from old computer, as well as the optical drives (CD/DVD). If your graphics card is not part of the motherboard, that can be brought over as well. Add the keyboard and mouse, and that will be about it.

Not recognized by 2tb hitachi simpledrive


USB ports on computers can be either the older '1.1' speed, or the newer (and much faster) '2.0' high-speed.

Your external drive is capable of using the high-speed USB 2.0 interface, but you connected it to a USB 1.1 port on your computer.

So, you can either "live" with the slower speed of a 1.1 port, or you can "upgrade" -- add hardware to your computer to add USB 2.0 ports -- so that the external drive will be over 7 times faster.

Add a mouse


Yes.

Most wireless mice come with a small wireless USB dongle that you plug into a USB port.

If your laptop supports bluetooth, you can get a bluetooth mouse, and you wont need to plug anything into your USB port.

Have a look at the logitech nano mouse.

USB Header


The only way is to purchase a USB Board to install in the PCI slot, but that would be overkill since you PC already has 4) 2.0 USB ports. I would exchange that internal reader for an external reader.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
