Not much of a solution but with that type of computer, I'm assuming you might* have Windows 2000 MAYBE XP (hopefully now.) <---Having XP on it would make it run even slower due to the OS needing more resources.

Due to the specs, if you already have the max amount of ram allowed by this system. (576MB)

Then there is pretty much nothing you can do to speed it up faster than what its going at. You could ship it back to the manufacture and pay 5 times the cost to have it upgraded. Which could easily buy you a much better laptop. But that's just crazy :P

I am sorry other than that, there is pretty much no way to speed it up. Maybe putting Windows 95 might help...but whats the point of that eh?

    You can increase the ram but before that please follow the steps below if you need more speed then install more ram...

    Click Start-> Run, type msconfig and click Ok. The System Configuration Utility will start. Now click on Startup tab. You will see a list of programs which starts automatically when Windows starts.
    In that list, uncheck the program items, which you generally don't use. It will make your computer a little faster.
    The above procedure can also be modified a little, that is uncheck all items under Startup tab, restart your computer.
    Now check one item at a time, restart computer and test the speed of your computer. This way, you will find the programs, which are making the computer show. Remember to use a pen and paper to take a note about which items you are selecting or unselecting.

    Please try one more thing:

    Open Start-> Settings-> Control Panel-> System. Click on Advanced tab. Under Performance, click on Settings, click on Adjust for best performance, click Apply and Ok.

    Then do this Click->Start->Programes->Accessories->System Tools->Disk Clean Up and select the C:Drive and clean it

    SOURCE: what happens if one powers on a laptop compaq evo n110 series

    Did the fan make a noise first and lose efficiency gradually or fromone moment to the next? In the latter case it's less likely to be thefan, but a logic board issue,it could be the fan control circuitry of your motherboard or a brokensensor. You can download a program called fan-control, it will allowyou to power up the fan manually. If there was a noise first and thefan got slower and slower, it's most likely your fan that's broken,which any repair shop will replace for you , I work for Computer Repair NYC andwe do this repair frequently.

    Hello, I have a compaq evo n110, and it was working ok then froze and restarted, started working again then did it again. now it comes up saying windows was not shut down properly and asks the usual...

    There are many different things that could cause the issue you describe.

    About how old is this computer? If it's between 3-5 years old, you may want to consider purchasing a new one.

    Has anything changed recently? Did you install software or other updates that may have caused this issue?

    When it goes to the screen that lets you choose Safe Mode, etc., do you have an option that reads "Last known good settings?" If so, choose that option to start the computer with.

    What's EVO N110 bios password?

    To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

    In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

    What happens if one powers on a laptop compaq evo n110 series

    it's likely the fan has failed. it should immediately shut down and even if it doesn't... if the fan is not spinning you need to put a new fan in first. it is easier to replace a fan then a cpu and heat will basically kill it.
