I have the compaq desktop computer presario p8714aba, cnn5430hm1 serial number .compaq presario sr1710nx. Since I installed the McAvee security system the computer has been running very slowly. I have 256 mb. Would the Norton anti virus system use less mb's. Is there a way I can increase the amt of mb's that I have to allow the McAvee system to run more efficiently. I use comcast and do not have dial up service. any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you, Irene

Go to this site and enter your McAfee software information and look for a solution.:

http://service.mcafee.com/FAQSearch.aspx?lc=1033&sg=TS&pt=1

Several Security products are using an enormous amount of power. You can also go to your task manager and look under the processes and obtain exactly the amount of power your security system is using. It will be under all that have anything to do with McAfee. (To get to the task manager just do a (ctrl alt del). You will need this information if you can not find an answer on the McAfee site. You can speak to a technician online there if you can not find an answer on your own. I would help you look, but I need more info on which McAfee you have installed and your operating system.

If you are running Windows XP you need more than 256 meg. 512 or two 512's would be alot better.
And make sure when you put Mcafee onto your computer you uninstalled all your old antiviruses first.
Make sure it is updated too, because everyday viruses are being created and antivirus gets out of date fast.
If you want free versions that do a better job than norton and Mcafee go to download.com and install AVG or AVAST and you will get better results than the ones you are paying for.

Is an emachine boot disk W2828 compatible with compaq presario desk topS4000v series?


No.

When Windows is put on a computer it assigns hash values to certain major hardware components;

1) Processor
2) Motherboard chipset
3) BIOS program, version, and date
4) Harddrive
5) Graphics chipset

Instead, I would like to post that you can get the Restoration Disk, for your Compaq.

THE disk.

On the back of the desktop is the Serial Number in a white Service Tag. S/N = Serial Number
Only give this to an authorized HP representative.
(HP bought out Compaq)

In the US the disk is free.
The shipping and handling is not.

$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Write the Serial Number down to give to the nice representative.

Outside the US,

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html

After you install the Restoration Disk in the computer, and when asked, choose Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Presario sr1710nx what type memory


Crucial.com has an excellent wizard for locating memory.
Computer memory upgrades for HP Compaq Presario SR1710NX Desktop PC...

Lists memory compatible with your machine.
Memory Type: DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 4GB
Slots: 4icon_note.gif Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

I have also found that the memory occasionally is not recognized. To fix remove the ram and clean electrical contacts with a clean pencil eraser. (Rub the contacts to clean.) Then replace memory. (My machine failed to boot, cleaning the contacts fixed the problem.

I dont now my computers serial number


The serial number can be found on a tag on the back of or underneath the computer.

If not there, the restart the computer. Press the F12 key or whatever key it asks for to get into the BIOS. On the first page of the BIOS, the system serial number is usually there as well.

Can't access certain websites


Hi,

Check to see if any part of the program is still installed on your computer and delete them. if not, right click on your internet icon and go to internet properties and go to security tab and check restricted sites and remove the blocked sites as the security suite may have blocked them.

please rate me. thank you.
