Re: pc slow performance

Will it also help if I add a new RAm? I only have a 256 DDr400 RAM. I think also my applications need high requirements of RAM that is why it is slowing down. Is it going to help improve my pc?

It would help enormously, to be honest you should be running at least 1gig of RAM with a Windows Server.
With RAM so cheap these days 1gig of RAM is not going to cost you a fortune.
Use the RAM configurator at crucial.com or newegg.com to make sure you get the correct and compatible RAM.

Try re-installing the two new sticks two or three times. Sometimes there is a little build up of oxides on the contacts on the motherboard and keeps the bios from properly recognizing them.

Open your computer's case and check for a free slot on the motherboard. If there is any, then you can add another memory module, no problem with that.

Yes it can support 1GB ram. Max capacity up to 4GB of ram, meaning 1GB each on each slot. Make sure that the memory that you will be installing are either DDR400, DDR333 or DDR266. It could be the RAM is faulty if the one you bought is the DDR's that I mentioned

Hi, ideally today you require a minimum of 1G of memory. Also perform a virus scan and malware scan, as your computer could be infected causing it to run slow.
Hope this helps

Slow computer with 256 MB,


efore you make any purchases, you need to know how much memory you have and what type of memory to buy.Find out how much RAM your computer has:
Windows 7
Windows Vista
In Windows XP, go to the Start menu, click Settings, and then click Control Panel. Click System and then select the General tab. At the bottom of the page you should see the amount of RAM.
Most games will specify the minimum amount of RAM you need to install them and play. For example, Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban requires 256 MB. This amount includes RAM that the computer needs to do its own background work as well as to run the game.
The amount of RAM you need depends on the operating system you are using. For systems running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP, you will need the minimum recommended amount, but more is often better, depending on your needs. If you just use your PC for surfing the Internet and writing letters, you need 512 MB to 1 GB. For more RAM-intensive programs, such as games or photo editing, or if you like to use a lot of applications at the same time, such as desktop publishing and video rendering, more than 1 GB is recommended. Each program should come with system requirements that show both the minimum RAM needed to run the program, and the amount of RAM needed for its best performance.
RAM modules can be purchased in a variety of sizes.
Figure out what type of RAM you requireTo determine the maximum amount of RAM your computer can handle as well as the speed, consult your PC's owner's manual, which should show you the number of slots (the place where you insert the RAM), how much each can take, and the maximum your system can use.

Why is it taking ages for my computer to start , open Outlook Express and Internet Explorer? I have recently installed a Photosmart C4400 All-in-One.


I believe the reason it is taking your computer so long and then appears slow is the lack of RAM. While your processor is the engine that makes your computer run, the RAM is what makes the engine perform better (a gross oversimplification, but you get the point I hope). The recommended requirements for Windows XP is 128MB of RAM. Your system has double that, however, with applications that are running on startup, I believe you are maxing that out. (For an example, I am running windows XP with more than 4 times what you currently have. Running a PC with only 256MB of RAM these days can be quite painful as new versions of internet explorer and applications in general can be quite memory intensive.) The printer you have installs software for picture printing as well as a few other items that do indeed run when you start windows. I would highly recommend purchasing RAM from your local technology retailer (ie Best Buy, etc). If you bring in your tower they can get you exactly what you need. RAM is relatively inexpensive these days and I think you would have a much more enjoyable computing experience if you went from the 256MB to 1GB (1GB = 1000MB). Everything will run faster for you. I know this is not the best answer or a quick fix, but I would just about bet my next expense check that getting a RAM upgrade would solve this problem along with general slowness in applications.

Im sure this is the computer on this one but after i installed vista and all of the updates my computers internet is slow. but at times it will be really fast for about a minute then 10 minutes of slow...


Is the computer high enough spec. to run vista.
This system is hungry in recourses you need a minimum of 2 gig of ram and a dual core processor for it to run vista at a decent speed.

Add memory to HP/Compaq nc6000?


Yes you should increase the memory. XP runs suitably well at 512mb. At 1GIB it blazes.

The memory meter is pegged because it is having to use the Harddrive as ram (Swapfile) which is 1000x slower than RAM.

XP with nothing on it, straight from the factory will run with 256, but after 3-6 months of use, and adding applications it will get progressively slower.
