Question about Intel (RK80532PG0881M) Pentium 4, 3 GHz Processor

1 Answer

Upgrading my laptop processor

I bought a computer about a year ago, but it is running really slow. Is it a matter of needing more RAM (it has 1GB) or getting a new processor (it has 1.8 GHz)?

When you're running an average load, start Task Manager and view the performance tab. If the amount of free RAM is low, then definately upgrade your RAM. Plus, nowadays it's really cheap to upgrade ram.
As far as upgrading your processor, that can get a little tricky and expensive.
Also, what do you mainly use your computer for, and what operating system do you use?

    Personally, I feel that if your going to be just websurfing, trying an operating system other than Windows can really speed up your computer. Windows tends to be a little clunky and an operating system such as linux can speed up your computer a lot. Try Ubuntu Linux, it comes on a live CD so you don't have to commit to installing it, and best of all, it's free! I highly recommend this, as you wouldn't have to spend the extra $$ on the RAM.


    You mention you game, the one problem is that Linux doesn't handle games very well. You could try dual booting so you can boot to windows when you want to game.

First, your pc5300 memory runs default at 6300Mhz, not 333. Perhaps your motherboard Front Side Bus line is 333 in which case the memory will drop to that speed, but if the FSB and memory match speed, then it would run at 6300. Since you have an older unit, I would suppose you are running only 333, and that is average speed for that config. In addition, you are only running 1 gig RAM, which is woefully inadequate for Windows 7, so everything you do is going to be slow.

Model type & number of 512mb or 1gb ram memory for


There are many different specifiactions for RAM.
Firstly is it Desktop or Notebook RAM that you are looking for.

Below is a list of RAM specifiactions:
DDR
DDR2
DDR3

Now these RAM specifiacations run at different clock speeds.

For example:
DDR 400MHz
DDR2 800MHZ
DDR3 1333MHz

What I need you to do is to tell me the following:
What is it to be used for, Desktop or Notebook/Laptop?
What is written on the RAM modules? You may need to remove one from your computer or use a software program like CPU-Z to check what it is you are running in your computer.

I've AMD sempron 2400 1.66 ghz processor with 256mb RAM, can in upgrade it to 1GB Ram?


yes without any doubt the ram you should need is DDR 1 or DDR 333mhz or 400mhz either one should do and probably can be found very cheap on ebay. if you really only want 1gb probably best to have 2x512mb sticks as some motherboards didnt like the 1GB modules and needed to be flashed. but if your mainboard is pretty good you will probably find that it can take 2gb

I am having celeron processor with 256 RAM and 40GB HDD Can i install Windows 7 or Vista over this processor


Well, Vista and Windows 7 require at least 1GB of system RAM to run, If I were you I'd think about upgrading with more memory. Otherwise you will experience a very slow PC, the RAM problem will then slow down your CPU and you'll end up with a big mess.

I have a Gateway computer, model M460E which has 1Gb of RAM and an Intel (R) Celeron (R) M Processor 1.50 GHz and though it has enough RAM with XP, it is slow to warm up. It is encrypted with True Crypt...


First contact gateway or visit their website and findout what the model and part No. of the fastest Intel processor that your motherboard will support is. (Your mothrboard support manual should have this information also). Then try to find one - you might have to try E-Bay if they are no longer manufactured. A faster processor will definitely help.

However incrasing the amount of RAM will help even more. Windows will use all the physical RAM that you can install. Windows will always run faster with more RAM as it will not have to access virtual memory (your comparitively slow hard drive paging file) nearly as much.

Also, If you have the time and a good way to back-up your data files you might want to consider formatting your hard drive and installing a fresh load of your operating system. This is a good idea if you have noticed that the PC has been performing slower and slower over a long period of time. The system registry becomes loaded with no longer needed entries (often from the failure of software removal tools to do a thorough job). Same for the hard drive - even after you defragment it.

Besides, a fresh load would provide you with the opportunity to see if True Crypt is slowing you down to any significant degree. Time a boot of your operating system before installing true crypt and then check the boot time after installing the program.

I bought an Acer AO532h-2964 netbook, and I'm wondering: can I upgrade the RAM from 1 GB to 2 GB, and if so, which memory chip should I buy?


yes you can, your netbook can have a max of 2gb ram and a max module size of 2gb.
So you have 1gb pc 5300(ddr667) installed, and you can buy 1 more 1gb module, laptops use sodim.
Aria.com has a 1gb stick for £25

I have pentinum4 intel(R) celeron processor 1.3 GHZ processor. I want to increase the speed of my processor without any hardware change. I have 40 GB HD & 512MB with windows XP RAM.plz help


you cannot change the speed of your processor unless your processor supports overclocking. however your processor does not support that.

if your computer is running slow try upgrading the RAM to 1GB.
also check to see whether you have unwanted applications running in the background

Hello.......


since you are using an obsolete model and computer specs, i don't think this can actually support windows XP in optimal settings.. You might want to install windows 98 on this machine to be able to use it properly.

note: you may think that this machine is working really slow because you tend to compare it on the newer machines that you are using. If that's the case, then you are definitely right that it's slower. This is because the machine is really old. KUDOS to you though for having a working machine that is this old. I used to have one about 4 years ago and it was one of the best during its time. :)
