Yes, that's why with new computers, it comes with high ram.

In any case, try to clean out your C: do a disk clean up.
remove useless software. Don't archive for faster search (slow computer down)

Acer aspire 1800 running very slow. Can I improve it's performance?


FIXING A SLOW COMPUTER
A slow computer could be caused by a number of things - 1. Insufficient RAM (memory) - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to at least 1Gb of RAM. 2. Registry problems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys. Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc. 3. Uninstall/remove unused programs, this will also free up hard disk space. 4. Not enough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn't been configured to manage it. 5. Install latest Windows updates. 6. Update virus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc. 7. Clear the Internet cache for faster browsing. 8. Hard disk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioning efficiently. Run the following programs - Disk Cleanup - removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard disk space. Disk Defragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and therefore the hard disk access is faster.

Acer aspire 3680-2022 with vista is just too slow. Intel celeron M processor 420; 1.6 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, IMB L2 Cache; 80 GB HDD; 512MB DDR2; Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950


More memory will make a difference. Vista is a memory hog and 512 is really not enough. You don't say what version of Vista you have but Microsoft say the min spec for Home Basic is 512MB, other flavours 1GB. Gety as much in as your mainboard will support - 2GB would be my minimum..

A Celeron 1.6 processor isn't going to be that fast if you are running a lot of apps and not much you can do about that (pretty unlikely you can upgrade; very few laptop mainboards let you).

There are a few tweaks you can make that may help but you (defrag, set Windows to better performance rather than better display, format and re-install) but stick some more memory in and see how you go.

Windows vista home basic problem (acer aspire 6930)


Unless you can find and verify you have an orignal CD there is nothing you an do but buy another license for th use of Vista. If you made a back up set up. Have yo ulooked at the bottom of the laptop. Most of the time it has the Vista sticker with the key for your windows use. reinstall and use that key.

New Acer Aspire one with one gig of ram seems slow. Will adding another 1 gig of memory make it faster? Will I be able to see the difference? Is this a difficult task to do?


Adding RAM, especially if your running Vista, will usually cure a lot of the problems related to speed. You shoul dbe able to see quite a difference in boot time and when loading programs in either XP or Vista.

Adding RAM is usually a very easy process. Certain care must be taken of course not to build up any static electricity of course. But after looking at the specs for the Acer Aspire, unless you are comfortable with taking laptops apart, I would take it to your local computer repair place and ask them to install it for you. THe slot is located underneath the motherboard and requires quit a bit of finesse to get to. Also, from the look sof it, you'll only be able to upgrade to 1.5 GB total of ram. So now it's a matter of considering if it's worth the trouble for an additional 512MB of ram. There will be a light improvement, but you'll have to wiegh that against the cost of the ram and installation.

Missing Vista home basic product number


Acer gives you the option to create your own cd's. Click the start button & go to all programs. Look through the programs installed. Someting like DVD pro. or nero. There is a program in there so you can creat your own set of restore cd's. The reason your PC is so slow is because Acer loaded the system up with a ton a junk you'll never use. (Can always return it). I would befor the warranty runs out.........

Good Luck!
