My Aceces lapetop with Vista Basic, 1.75 ghz Celeron processor, 1 gig DDR 2 530 mgz ram has slowed down and takes too long to boot up and down, sometimes about more than three minutes or more. I have tried to remove the start up programs I do not need to start up and put another 1 gig of memory but still takes too long. I have checked for conflicting drivers but there is none, I have also remove incompatible Acer software but no LUCK... Is there any suggestions out there????

How can I upgrade/improve the capabilities of my Inspiron 1200


The best and quickest improvement is to add more RAM. Add another 512 Mb of RAM. If you already have a 512 Mb of RAM module then add another 512 Mb RAM module. If your laptop has 2X256 Mb RAM modules then you need to remove these and insert 2X512 Mb RAM modules.
The reason why you have 504 Mb RAM is that the video card has grabbed 8Mb of RAM off the main memory.

I have a problem with fps. When i bought my acer 5315,the fps was good when i played games, but suddenly the fps dropped to 2-8. I have tried updating all the drivers and stuff and dont know what to do


Games always need RAM and Graphics cards to keep the frames from stuttering.Your Acer
Manufacturer: Acer Product MPN MPN Aspire 5315-2153 Key Features Processor dtrquestion.gif Celeron M 1.73 GHz Hard Drive dtrquestion.gif 80 GB Serial ATA Display 15.4 in. WXGA+ TFT Active Matrix Processor Processor Type dtrquestion.gif Celeron M Processor Speed dtrquestion.gif 1.73 GHz Memory Installed RAM 1 GB
is low on both.Win XP x32 likes 3GB of RAM and Vista wants even more.The Frames Per Second is purely a Graphics Processor Hog.
This is from Fixya website;
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1531241-acer_5315_series_laptop_get_better
Your graphics card "is" built in and cannot be upgraded.The latest drivers "from Intel" is your only option for an upgrade. To be less graphics intense decrease your screen resolution by right clicking your "desktop" and clicking "properties" then "settings".Move the pointer left one click "screen resolution".The screen will jump around a bit while it's resetting,hit "apply" and "ok".The resolution will now be less but your game will speed up-some-ultimately this laptop is not built for fast paced games.Sorry bout the news,take care!

Which is the fastest cpu i can mount on my 2.6 ghz celeron based acer travelmate 244lc notebook now? Is there any fastest celeron compatible now? Thanks in advance anyway. Mario


2.6 Ghz is pretty fast already. If your computer is running your programs slow, you can upgrade your RAM to 2GB; this would speed it up allot.

Can you do a cpu upgrade on Acer Travelmate 2480-2968? If so what type of intel CPU will work on this machine?


The following CPUs are supported by the Acer TravelMate 2480:
Intel Celeron M processor 410/420/430/440/450 (1 MB L2 cache, 1.46/1.60/1.73/1.86/2 GHz, 533 MHz FSB) or higher.

So, based upon the speed of the CPU you currently have, you can decide whether you need a CPU upgrade or not.

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.

Lenovo 3000 N100 0768-FTG lap top need processor upgrade


I'm afraid you're out of luck, the motherboard is not capable of taking a dual core processor. Your only option would be to consider selling the laptop and buying a new one that already has a dual core processor installed.

Slow laptop dv 9208 w vista


If you're having Vista, you will need 1gb RAM minimum. Vista is resource intensive, concentrated more on graphics, and a lot of Hardware compatibility issues. Windows XP is fine and better as of now which runs great with 1GB of ram and a pretty processor of 2.0 ghz ...If you think of speeding up ur lappy better go for XP .increasing ur RAM will increase the number of apps that you can run productively at a time.

Upgrading my laptop's processor from celeron 540 to 560


Hi there,
Fan cooler for Celeron is usually the same for 540 and 560 Ghz, there should be no need to replace cooling system if you pass from 540 and 560
Whenever you operates on CPU and cooling system you need to monitor CPU temperature using Bios or a dedicated software. Here is a good software to check CPU temperature and Fan activity: SpeedFan Download.
Regarding the RAM, some seller like this one (UK seller).sells Trascends 2 GB modules, seller says they work on 4315, you can eventually ask them if there is any issue with bios version and if you need to upgrade bios.
Remember, CPU upgrade on a laptop is not a simple operation, be careful if you do it yourself, as it is easy to damage the laptop when taking it apart. Regarding RAM, main risk is incompatibility, If you live in UK the seller above guarantee compatibility with Acer 4315, double check by sending them an email before buying.

Acer Aspire 5315


I have a friend who has an Acer Aspire 5315 running Vista and it was pretty slow right out of the box with 1gb of ram. I upgraded his Ram to 2gb and it ran moderatly faster and smoother. Vista is a demanding OS because it's so graphical in nature. Windows Vista requires more ram then XP plus a better CPU to run smoothly. His had a 1.6ghz Celeron which is not that great of a CPU to begin with but uping your ram will usually up your performance a few degrees. Be careful with cheap ram it can run hot and unstable. Make sure go with a name brand PNY, Corsair, Kingston, etc. Don't just buy House ram (generic) because it's cheap. It's not worth wasting your money on junk ram.

Hope this helps. M~

Dell Latitude D800 Processor slows down


This is the SpeedStep technology feature of your processor. It will speed back up to 1.7 GHz when it is needed. Slowing down the processor saves battery life.
