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.

My system is running slow


Slow computer If you have a virus program installed, it is most likely is running a scan on your hard disk. It can slow down your computer especially if you have a large hard drive. After scanning is completed then the computer will be faster.
To make your computer (hard disk) lean and mean, uninstall any programs you do not use.
Also you need to maintain your hard disk by running Disk Cleanup this will remove old temp files and old compressed files etc.
This will reduce the number of files the virus scanner has to scan. Plus running Defrag. this makes your files contiguous so the system can access files off the hard drive quicker because it does not work as hard.. Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out at least once a month.
If you have 512Mb of RAM installed then installing more RAM will speed up your computer. After installing your graphics card, you may need to disable the built-in graphics card in the BIOS for the new graphics card to work properly.

I recently purchased 2 1gb pny ram ram sticks hoping to upgrade my ram. After installing the 2 sticks the computer doesnt boot. I reinstalled the original 2 512mb sticks and the computer works fine. Is my...


Without the computer model and make I can't say if it is upgradable or not. Most are upgradable to some extent. You will need to look for the product description of your laptop on the manufacturer website you may want to download the user manual from them or check the manual you have if you still have it. Yo9u are looking for the max ability of the computer and at the speed and type requirements for your ram. Also, you should know that some companies make Ram of the correct type and class but for some reason will not work in some models. I have Kingston ram 2gb modules that will not work in my Laptop but I purchased Siemens Ram of the same type and it works fine. So it may just be a matter of Ram Manufacturer.

Ram upgrade problems


When you installed the new upgrade and it was giving you errors it probably damaged or moved some files on the computer. Sorry to say but the easiest fix is going to be re-installing windows. Other than that it would require editing the registry and that is not easy and requires some knowlege
