From what I can tell, an HP 210-1000 is a netbook. It is built for portability and not performance so it is not made to run fast.
If you would like your computer to run faster, you have several options.
The first is to upgrade the parts in your machine. The easiest two things to upgrade with the greatest payoff are the RAM and the hard drive. You can go to your local computer shop and pick these up, but you'll need someone who knows computers to install them for you.
The second is try and optimize your Windows for faster run speeds. This means turning off a lot of the nice visual effects that come with Windows 7/Vista so that your computer doesn't have to work as hard to go fast.
The last is just to get a new computer. If speed is a main concern of yours, then you should look into getting a machine that will be able to run quickly. A netbook or laptop is made for travelling and not for power.

Can i upgrade the memory on a Dell Vostro 1700 laptop from 2gb to 4gb?


The extra ram may not speed it up. You need to find out whats causing it to slow down, and fix that issue first.

Message: Virtual Memory is too low. The pc is too slow to work.


You may need more RAM. Right click My Computer > General.

Or, open Control Panel > System. RAM will be noted. You can run / see Windows Experience in Win 7. Your score is based on lowest score. Check RAM score.


Win 7 works best with at least 2GB of RAM

Another trick is to disable startup programs from loading in the first place. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig > Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically.

My HP Pavilion a1120n is running very slow I re formated it a few time over the years. Recently I added more ram and ran great till i clean it with air may , then ran very slow, so I remove some ram then...


Did you replace the hard drive? It is quite possible there is an issue with the drive at that age. YOu could try an application called "SpeedFan" or "HD Tune" and run a S.M.A.R.T test on it. This will help you determine the drive status. You can run a benchmark with "Hd Tune" and determine the speed of the drive. If you want to post your results, I will certainly help out further.

My dell latitude d600 is extremely slow. I have pi ctures and school papers i do not want to lose.....What can i do too help my computer?


I suggest you copy the school papers, and photos to disk/s, or flashdrive/s for safekeeping.
Then work on getting your computer to be faster.

1) A computer starts slowing down in performance once the Harddrive reaches 50 percent full.
You won't really notice until the Harddrive is at 70 percent full, but the computer has been slowing down all along

Remove unnecessary programs you do not use, and applications.
DO NOT remove Windows programs.
Just one's you have loaded from disk, or downloaded from the internet.

Go to Add/Remove Programs, and see if there any that can be deleted.
(Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Add/Remove Programs)

2) Defragment the Harddrive.
Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Free up disk space so programs will run faster

3) Clean up the Registry.
Every time you visit a website cookies are put on your harddrive. Tiny pieces of software, but after a while they add up, and take up harddrive space.

There are also fragmented files left behind after you have removed programs, and/or applications.
There are a lot of 'bits and pieces' left behind that are of no use, and take up harddrive space.

Using a Registry cleaner removes these fragments, and helps to speed up your computer's processes.
(Makes the computer faster)

I suggest CCleaner.
Why?
1) It works, and works well.

2) It's FREE. Works as well as paid for versions, and better than some paid for versions.
Don't let the fact that it's free fool you.

3) I have been using CCleaner for about 2 years now. Haven't had problem 1, and use it every time I'm off the internet.
Not advertising. Wouldn't do any good, lol! It's Free!

http://www.piriform.com/

Take a look around, 'Kick the tires',

http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

Go to the right, and click on Screenshots.
If you decide to use Ccleaner, come back, and post in a Comment, and I'll step by step you through using it.

4) Maximize the Ram Memory. Of course we all have to watch our budget constraints, especially with the world economy the way it is.

The Maximum Amount of Ram Memory is 2GB. (2 GigaByte)
There are two Ram Memory slots. EACH slot has a maximum amount of 1GB.
Uses DDR Sdram at 333MegaHertz. (333MHz) [ PC-2700 ]
It is the SO-DIMM style of ram memory.

Documentation for the Dell Latitude D600 Notebook PC, from Dell Support, indicates the standard amount of ram memory that is installed, is 256MB.

[256MB + 256MB = 512MB
512MB + 512MB = 1024MB or also stated as 1GB ]

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd600/en/ug/specs.htm

Scroll down to the bold heading > Memory
Look at the sub-heading in the chart at the left > Memory module connector.
Indicates > Two user-accessible DDR Sdram connectors.

In plain English > Two Ram Memory slots.

Look at the sub-heading > Memory module capacities
128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GB.

Plain English > Can use just one 256MB ram module, ('Stick'), or two of them.
Same with each amount listed.

Look at the sub-heading > Standard memory
256MB

Plain English > Comes from the factory with one 256MB ram memory module.

[Maximum memory = 2GB ]

With 256MB of ram memory, a crude comparison is that you could kick a football down the football field, and have to wait until next month for the other team to bring it back.
S-L-O-W!

512MB of ram memory?
Umm, next week.

1024MB? (1GB)
Now you're talkin'.
Return ball at the speed of a normal game.

2048MB? (2GB)
You'll think special effects are happening because the football game is almost over!

An exaggeration I'll admit, but the performance increase is worth it when using programs, and applications.
On the internet? You'll see an increase in performance, but nothing to really write home to Mom about.

'Optimizer', or 'Performance enhancer', or some other dribble advertised as the 'flavor of the day'?
Naa, I find them costly, and full of beans.

Just use the free software available, and tune your computer up through steps 1 and 2 above ,using what Windows has available.
Keep your money in your pocket, unless more Ram Memory is an affordable option at this time.

Regards,
joecoolvette.

Hp 530 laptop is very slow and freezes


Well, The problem can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated hardware, overload startup programs, corrupt registry issues, too many junks, virus attack, poor security software taking too much system resources, remnants of uninstalled applications etc. The fact is, you should keep some system maintenance job regularly. If you don't want to do these manually, try the hp speed up tool http://www.speeduphp.com/ to give a free & full scan of your slow HP PC to find & fix all possible issues.

Meanwhile, upgrading hardware configuration (add RAM, change a new video card, larger-volume HDD etc) can be a fast yet effective way to improve your pc performance. But that won't be the most economical way, as you know you can't always afford to do that.

Videos pause alot i cant watch a full video straight through and computer running a little slow. My base score is 3.0 and lowest score is video card. I am using a Acer Aspire 5515 with windows vista.


Performance problems are caused mainly by two things: low memory and data fragmentation on your hard drive. If you're running a late version of Windows (Vista or 7RC), on only 1GB of RAM you're bound to run slowly.
Keeping the laptop on sleep or hibernate mode for several days, or weeks at a time, cause garbage left by improperly written software to exhaust your available memory, no matter how much you have.
The simple fix is to restart your laptop every other day or so. This is good both for your sanity and your laptop, and clears up any garbage in your memory.
If you're experiencing the problem when watching a DVD, then the problem is most likely caused by the shortage of memory. You can also help by closing any programs and stopping any unused services from your Services window, to reduce memory use.
The next cause can be fixed two ways:
1) The least expensive one is to run Disk Defragmenter, from Start->Accessories->System Tools. It's not very sofisticated as other tools, but it does the job.
2) Buy special software to maintain your data defragmented, such as Norton System Works.
If you're running Symantec 360 or similar software, you have a better tool here. Check the program Help for ways to run Disk Optimization automatically and effectively.
Regarding your video card score, it's a concern, but it should not be the reason for the hic ups you're experiencing. Downloaded movie files are rather large, and should be written all at once, and alone, when data is least fragmented, to ensure one clean smooth stream from your hard drive during playback.
Good luck!

I upgraded the memory from 1Gb to 2 Gb but my laptop's still slow


it can't be, check if the windows is reading 2gb from system under control panel.

to find out if your pc is fast, see if it plays a game faster than before or use a program faster than before
there is no diffrence in using windows itself. example i think in your mind you'd expect to click on my documents and it loads it super fast now with 2gb of ram? no, you're wrong weather you have 1gig or 2gig windows still works the same
the diffrence is Faster file transfer, faster applictions but not a faster windows.

it could also be the norton if you installed, it lowers your speed.

check Task manager, in the performance section
cpu usage should be under 10%
and pf under 500mb
