What parts should I upgrade in this computer?


It's not worth i,t you could upgrade by buying a graphics card, but I would recommend watching for a pc that fits your needs to go on sale at newegg then compare prices to amazon and go with cheapest. Once you upgrade the Motherboard you will have to purchase Windows, RAM and a new CPU

Emachines e728 wich processor can support


Not really sure what your doing here. I assume that your wanting to upgrade memory or upgrade a HDD or something of that matter. Since this is a laptop I did read up on them and why not just upgrade the memory and bigger hard drive or items that you are able to upgrade even the operating software Win 7 perhaps not sure if you have this. Obviously your having some slow matters or things are going on that do not function correctly.
There are solutions other than a overhaul or thinking you have to replace the whole computer or upgrade a system board entirely. See if you can upgrade the memory and the hard drive and maybe load Win 7 to improve performance. I would do that first and foremost rather than a complete upgrade it seems as per your question I may have misinterpreted your question. Never the less something bothers you about this laptop that your wondering about doing this.
That is the way I would go with this laptop just the basic upgrades memory and Hard disk space lager drive perhaps clean it up and be done with it. Just a suggestion. John

How to upgrade BIOS in my XW400?


Upgrading the BIOS is an easy task but not recommended unless your computer has a problem which will be solved by a BIOS upgrade.

I assume that you are aware that a failed upgrade may render you system unusable till it is reloaded. Primary cause of a failed upgrade is a power failure so please make sure your PC has a back-up power source in case of a power failure.

The latest BIOS update can be downloaded from this website.

Download the exe file on your desktop and double click on run it. It is to be used on Win XP or 2000.

Before upgrading, check the version of your BIOS. If the version number is same as the one with you are upgrading, it means you have already the latest BIOS and it is not necessary to upgrade. The version number of this BIOS is 3.06 Revision A.

Hello

Well, the buffering on you tube is purely proportional with the speed of the internet connection you have, it means that the video plays faster than that which your internet connection is able to load, thus it starts to buffer.

To solve this you need to upgrade your internet connecting, upgrading the performance of your computer itself will have no effect on the internet connection.

As for the upgrading of your desktop, if you are happy with the performance, you don't need to upgrade. Most common upgrade is ram modules, which makes loading programs and such faster.

I would say a good method of knowing it is time to upgrade is to have a look if the parts for your computer is still widely available, if so, and you are happy with the performance, don't upgrade. If the parts for your desktop is discontinued of not very widely available, i would say it is a good choice to upgrade. Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
Andrea

Upgrading my compaq evo d51s


A ram upgrade could help, however you may need to think about upgrading your CPU also. First check if you can upgrade your CPU. Your best option may be to upgrade to a new computer altogether.

Re upgrade, memory, speed etc?


Upgrade the RAM/Memory? Yes to the maximum *********** Bord will support.

Upgrade the Processor for more speed on a 9 year old Mother Board? Probably not worth the trouble.

How to Upgrade to max RAM


The Acer Aspire One can be upgraded to a total RAM of 2Gigs. This will allow for you to upgrade to Windows XP Pro and also to Microsoft Office 2003 as there is no version of Office Professional. If you would like more specifics on your particular model, please look here. http://www.laptopmag.com/review/laptops/acer-aspire-one-10-inch.aspx?page=3

Upgrading RAM is a fairly simple process. As this is a fairly compact laptop in design, you will have to upgrade to a new 2Gig RAM module and basically discard (or sell) the one you end up removing. In order to find out the type of RAM you'll need, remove the cover as show in the picture and the info for the existing RAM should be written on it.

Good luck!
