Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
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)?
You just need to clean it up a bit. Also, if you're using Norton, it will slow the computer considerably. Go into the system tools in the accessories, and do a disc defrag and clean up. Then go into add and remove programs, and remove any unused or unnecessary programs, especially any programs with the word Doctor in them that you may have inadvertently picked up on the web. Now go to filehippo.com and download CCleaner. The CCleaner will clean up the registry and other areas of the computer. Run both the registry and regular cleaners. And finally, if you have Norton, completely remove it and down load AVG from File Hippo. AVG is a much better antivirus and doesn't use the amount of resources Norton does, therefore allowing your computer to run faster. Do this and let me know of the improvement.

Hey, your best bet is upgrading the ram, if its ddr 2 will cost about 25-30 pounds for a extra gb, which will make it run a bit smoother. noone ever upgrades processors on laptops as your usually restricted to what u can uppgrade it too or costs too much.
i would suggest the memory upgrade...
if i can help anymore just ask..
All the best
