No offense, but Honestly that is to vague of a question. Those symptoms sound normal for a slow computer. You should consider how much you have to put towards upgrading your computer, if it is too slow for you. Taking your computer into a service center like geek squad or a local computer specialist would allow access to tools that are required to assess the underlying issue or performance.
Using online tools to identify computer issues is extremely dangerous to your data due to possibility of downloading malware and viruses if you are not familar with identifying risks.

My gateway essential 400 cant run newer programs **** *** window 7... or explorer 8... or flashplayer 10... how can i upgrade my computer 2 make it run these programs ? a new hard drive ? or what do i do...


You can add hard drive if your system doesnt have enough space for the new programs. If the new programs installs well but is running slow or not starting, then you will have to upgrade your RAM and for better performance, fix one graphics card suitable for *********** board. If you can spend more, Upgrade *********** board and processor.

I feel like my computer is running slowly because I need more ram. I was wondering if that was the problem? And where good ideas to buy more would be?

You should try defragging your machine first. That is cheap. Look under start -> accessories -> system -> defragment. This will take a while but it will definintely improve things. You can also try programs like CCleaner to fix your registry (and defrag).

Memory is fairly cheap. Many places have a tool to tell you exactly the memory upgrades that you can perform. Crucial, New Egg, etc. will probe your machine or ask you information about the machine.

You might also want to check to see that your WIndows updates are up to date. You should also check your virus program.
