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

How to add usb 3 ports


USB 3 and 3.1 ports are supported by the chipset on motherboards. They will have a blue color to identify them.

You cannot add USB3 ports. No external usb extenders, multiplexers can help.

Usb not recognising usb adapters


Try a different port or a port on a different section of your machine. USB controllers and USB ports can go bad from time to time. You can always add an external USB hub to any of your working hubs.
It could also be that whatever you're plugging in is not formatted correctly, or isn't powered on if it needs power. Also, try rebooting your machine to see if that fixes the recognition.

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.

Redovery disk


Yes that does have and ethernet port, (1) LAN (RJ45) the (1) means one and RJ45 is the type of ethernet port.
Floppy disks aren't available in the new computers, no one uses them anyway due to USB's and external hard drives etc.

Hello i have hp rp5000 pc which have AGP port onboard but when i put graphic card in it it doesnt recognized it. I tried with another hp rp5000 bios but it doesnt work anyway-is there anysolution?


Erm, although the slot is labelled AGP1 (HEY HP Accelerated GRAPHICS Port 1 ???), it is not for a graphics card.
It is intended for an enhanced USB card that adds additional USB ports as well as 12volt and 24volt outputs.
The RP5000 was designed to be a POS (point of sale) unit and the additional ports were for devices such as barcode readers, handscanners and card readers to be plugged into.

Wireless adapter


Go for an external USB wireless adapter, and the speed may vary depending on barriers and the distance from the router, the max. distance is about 30 ft from the router.
Tell me if anything else you want to know abt the wireless connection?

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

I need to add a hard drive to my HP a1220n Pavilion for Photoshop and other Graphic programs. How can I do it if there is no available slot? Please help.


Hi,

A desktop PC would normally have capacity for 4 IDE devices such as 1 CD/DVD, 3 HDs or any combination limited to a total of 4. Additionally, most current PCs have 2 SATA connection points. If for some reason all are occupied and hence your post "no available slot", you may want to consider using an external storage device attached via any USB port of your PC.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
