You may have to to internet options and clean out your Temporary internet files and cookies. You may want to reset the amount of space used on your hard drive for graphics to 128mb. This allows your computer to rid itself of useless graphics after you have closed your browser. That will be under settings of browser history. After you have cleaned things up you should Defrag your hard drive. If that works for you great...there are other things that may be causing the slowdown also, such as too many things running in the background....try these steps first and get back to me and I can walk you through stopping some of these unnecessary programs running in the background eating up ram.

Good Luck

Try removing the old ones and it should work. The old ram would just slow you new ram down anyways.

This can be because of virus infection, there are so many applications on your start up and low virtual memory.
But my best suggestion is for you to run a virus scan on your computer so it can detect viruses, worms and malware that you get in surfing the internet or by just sharing files. If this will not work you need to re-install your OS so your computer would be like brand new.

Computer starts and works fine for some time then it freezes and does nothing computer is an hp a1133w, I have replaced the heattransfer paste thinking thast is a heat related issue but it did not work


Three things could be it:

  1. failing disk drive
  2. failing memory
  3. virus
#1 Run manufactures diagnostic. Their web site will have the download

#2 Google MemTest86 and run

#3 Go to TrendMicro.com and scan for viruses.

Computer is very slow.


McAfee virus software is a memory hog. You need to add more memory to your pc. It uses pc3200 memory. This computer has a memory capacity of 4gigabytes. The memory slots are numbered this way......starting from the memory slot closest to the processor>
one, three, two, four. 1 and 2 work together, 3 and 4 work together. So if you buy just 2 gigabytes......put them in 1 and 2. This will help. Sounds like the virus software is doing a full system scan....you could do a "quick"scan and do a "full" scan once a week....

Boot your PC into "Safe Mode" (tapping the F8 key on boot to get to the option) and run a full/complete Virus scan with Anti Virus with up to date virus definitions and see what that yields.

PC freezing up after memory upgrade


You can use a utility called CPU-Z to find the timing of the memory installed in the PC. Then check your memory documentation (I could find no specs at the Samsung site) to make sure they match in the BIOS. I would remove one stick and see if the problem is better, and also try another brand (Kingston, Corsair, other major brand) to see if any of them work.

I have bought this product a few month ago and now two month later my laptop and computer is still slow and have threats of all kinds


Try installing antivirus software like Quickheal, Kaspersky.
Tune up your PC using a Registry Cleaner like "Eusing Registry Cleaner" or go Microsoft Web Site & try their free registry cleaner.

Hope this helps you..

My laptop computer takes forever to load Windows and I know there is some kind of problem because it sometimes freezes. I recentluy added more memory to 1.5 gb and it still has this problem of booting up...


have you scan for virus ?
If you did scan for virus and it didn't find any virus.
Check the startup options , their might be program running on the background.

The other problem might be that their are a lot of program running on the background.
Look on the task bar on the right hand side . Is their a lot of program loaded?
If yes.
Close some of the programs and try to connect to the internet

Freezing up


get a virus sweeping program, and see if there is a virus or worm hiding in the computer as these will drastically slow the computer down even with more ram.
