Hello,

YOu computer meet the average power requirement nowadays. HOwever if you want to make more faster performance. U only need to add more memory. 1Gb is faster than my computer which is 512Mb.

Ok adding more memory make the computer faster from 1 Gb to 2GB this is much faster.

hard drive is nothing to do with the performance of the system. its only a storage of all files.

but besure to know the model of the memory before you buy. it should be identical to your current memory.

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.

Hp 530 laptop is very slow and freezes


Well, The problem can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated hardware, overload startup programs, corrupt registry issues, too many junks, virus attack, poor security software taking too much system resources, remnants of uninstalled applications etc. The fact is, you should keep some system maintenance job regularly. If you don't want to do these manually, try the hp speed up tool http://www.speeduphp.com/ to give a free & full scan of your slow HP PC to find & fix all possible issues.

Meanwhile, upgrading hardware configuration (add RAM, change a new video card, larger-volume HDD etc) can be a fast yet effective way to improve your pc performance. But that won't be the most economical way, as you know you can't always afford to do that.

MY LAPTOP IS RUNNING SLOW


This model is a "netbook" not a "notebook", the difference being "notebook" units have better processors and better motherboards .. especially when regulating RAM, bigger harddrives and it's an Acer, which may I add has an excellent track record with faulty units, netbooks or otherwise, and has terrible customer service.

I upgraded the memory from 1Gb to 2 Gb but my laptop's still slow


it can't be, check if the windows is reading 2gb from system under control panel.

to find out if your pc is fast, see if it plays a game faster than before or use a program faster than before
there is no diffrence in using windows itself. example i think in your mind you'd expect to click on my documents and it loads it super fast now with 2gb of ram? no, you're wrong weather you have 1gig or 2gig windows still works the same
the diffrence is Faster file transfer, faster applictions but not a faster windows.

it could also be the norton if you installed, it lowers your speed.

check Task manager, in the performance section
cpu usage should be under 10%
and pf under 500mb

Acer Aspire 3680 too slow


Sure but if it has acually been slowing down you must also find the problem. Have you disk cleaned up and defragged your hard drive lately. Cleaned out all the junk from your internet exploier?  Have you gotten rid of everrything that you don't need or want. Slowest thing in a computer is the Hard drive seek/read time.  
  According to you manual (Link below) You can have up to 4GB total memory. Two strips of 2GB each soDIMMs

My acer aspire 5600 warned that I am running out of memory. My "D" drive says there is 30g of free space. How do I use it?


I think the computer actually said you were running low on Virtual Memory ... memory is the physical ram installed in your machine ... virtual memory is an area of hard drive the computer uses to store data when in runs out of "real" memory .....hard drive space is nothing to do with memory.

Ok, that got that cleared up :-) .... now the quickest way to get over low virtual memory problems is to install more RAM. For XP you should really have a minimum of 512mb .... 1gb is probably optimum. For Vista you should really have a minimum of 2gb.

So if your laptop has less than 512mb(xp) or 2gb(vista), the first thing to do would be to upgrade the memory.

Virtual memory problems should only ever crop up when you are running multiple applications .... so just try and keep the amount of programs you have running to a minimum. Instead of just minimizing programs, try to close them down to save memory.

3 minite and above take for laptop booting © problem


Here are some things you can do that will boost your performance back to normal.
First, go into Start>All programs>system tools and run Disk Cleanup. This will get rid of all of the junk like *.tmp files that has built up. Second, in the same place after you run DiskCleanup run Defrag. This will take care of all the gaps on your hard drive so data can be found more easily. Finally you need some more RAM. 1GB these days with all the intensive programs is minimal especially if you have a 250GB HDD. Means if you load that puppy up your access time will be very slow with only 1GB. All programs load into RAM when they run, so with only 1GB your system has to constantly keep going back and forth to your hard drive to get code and that makes it very slow. Hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa. If you have any problems let me know.

Pc is slow and crashes all the time


Hi, if i understand your PC is running slow and craching. ok there could be coursed by a few things but lets do the most probable ones first.

1 - RAM, if you go to the start menu and right click "my computer" in XP or "computer" in vista then properties under memory there will be somethink that says ****GB of Ram ( * being numbers). if you r running vista this should be 2GB or 1GB min. if XP 1GB will run well. if your RAM is not this high then you have to upgrade it. if you still have your manual some times they have the spesifecations at the back and you can find out the max RAM your PC will take and what type it will take. if you dont have the manual you can find this information out by just typing into google eg "dell 2400 spesifications or RAM, etc". when you know what RAM you need then just us google to find the cheapes place to buy. again your manual should tell you how to put it if not you should be able to find it on google.

2 - removing any unwanted software from your PC does speed it up, you can also try defraging your PC - right click C drive properties defrag is under one of the tabs.

3 - Spyware some times spyware can slow your PC down make sure you have an up to date spyware scanner and run a scan.

good luck
