My laptop become very slow ...its 1 gb ram and 160 gb harddisk .... which os i should install please advise


You need to upgrad the amount of RAM.
The 4720 notebook is capable of running up to 4GB or ram on 32bit windows 7 OS

The OS requires 1GB of RAM to run.....

Therefore, you only have enough RAM to run window, and no spare ram that should be dedicated to the graphics and other system operations.

Action needed:
Buy 2x 2GB sticks of Kingston ValueRam and run the laptop on 4GB. It will be much faster than what is needed and should provide fast computer responce.

Cheers.

I have a Tecra 8200 bought as used fitted with 256MB of ram. If I buy an extra 256MB which brings the total to the maximum allowed of 512MB is it likely that I will need to upgrade the bios to allow the...


This laptop came with 128mb ram, you can safely install 2 sticks of 256mb for a maximum of 512mb with no bios update.
You need pc100 sodimms.
Amazon or ebay will be the best bet as this memory is expensive now from a retailer.
I found 256mb sticks for under $10 buy it now on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/256MB-SODIMM-PC100-SDRAM-256-MB-PC-100-LAPTOP-144-Pin-/190411543153?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c55699271

the requirment of cup speed, something just fooling people, you don;t very need to pay attention on it, however, even if you upgrade ram into 1gb, i think for some reasons, 2GB would be the best.......

RAM is the most inportant to run problem.

RAM


you can free up some space on the hard drive not on the RAM
RAM is used by the system and appliction. you don't have control on it.
however, you can goto control panel>>system>>advanced>>performance settings>> advanced
adjuste the virtual memory setting.

NOTE::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
if you don't know what to adjust, please don't touch it. let the system manage the virtual memory.
if you play around with it, you may not have the use of the computer.

It is possible to reformat the system and reinstall Windows.
Adding Extram RAM and replacing the motherboard is not cost effective as you could buy a better system for the cost of the parts.

Video memory


1) On board video devices often use main system RAM,
by remapping it into their own address space.

This is designed to be CHEAP not GOOD.

Any RAM used by the video controller is NOT available to
to Windows, thus reducing system performance.

2) Sacrificing system RAM for video is a bad idea, the
system needs it more. Extra RAM in video controllers
is used mostly for 3-D effects and gaming, because
most video systems already have plenty of RAM for
implementing colors screen resolution.

On board video controllers are never fast or exotic enough
to benefit from the extra RAM anyway.

The rest of the system (i.e. Windows) on the other hand
can put any extra RAM to a far better use, by reducing
the need to store transient data on disk.

Don't forget that a hard disk is 10,000,000 times slower than
physical RAM, and when Windows starts running out of
physical RAM, it starts swapping data to disk (thrashing).

The performance penalty is not subtle !!!! Operations that
took a few seconds can take hours and even days.

3) It may be possible to change the balance between
system RAM and VIDEO RAM in the BIOS.
This depends on the motherboard.

4) If you want to drastically improve performance, do
buy a separate video card, for example an ATI Radeon
Saphire and disable the onboard video.

You must make sure the video card will fit in your
motherboard. Depending on the boards age, it
can use one of several types of I/O slots:

Vesa
PCI
AGP 2x
AGP 4x/ 8x
PCI Express

etc...

The card must match the slot.

5) The suggestion that adding a separate video card would
somehow slow down your computer is absolute non-sense.

Tell the guy to read some books, take a few classes, and
keep his opinions to himself until he knows something.

Internal video cards (on-board) have limited capabilities,
and steal system resources. Add-on cards are designed
for performance, by adding resources and off-loading
graphics related computation from the main CPU,
allowing it to do 0ther things.

6) Finally, using the hard-drive to supplement video RAM
is impossible. The hard disk is way too slow. It would be
like hitching a snail in front of your Porche. Perhaps
even a little worse.

Video RAM needs to be extremely fast, even faster than
system RAM. It is often organized using ultra-wide buses
with interleaved addressing for maximum speed. Also,
for this reason, good video RAM is not cheap. A good
Video CARD will have between 256 to 512 MB of fast RAM.

If you run Windows XP, your system should have at between
1024 to 2048 MBytes of system physical RAM.

Less RAM will make your system drastically slower when
doing things like video and image processing.

For VISTA, two gigs is the absolute minimum.


Disk are used for storing lots of data at a slow speed,
and retaining it with the power OFF.

Hard disks can store about 1,000 times as much as
physical RAM, but the access time is up to 10 million
times slower:

RAM can be accessed in 1 nanosecond.
DISK takes 10 milliseconds.
