You will want to bump the RAM up to at least 512mb. This will drastically increase the speed of the machine. Also, download CCleaner from, this is a cleaning program that will get rid of excess junk the slows the computer. Everything else is good.

T2300 @ 1.66 Ghz, 981 MHz, too slow to run

nx6310 (now obsolete ,zero HP support on this) 12 years old.
in dog years that is 84 years.
all that and no OS stated is this DEAD XP" the virus magnet?
if yes, all XP are infected and slow, I'd bet you that !
It came with XP if not XP say how it got changed,using what.?

well , in my opinion all PC are slow. it is a relative term
compared to what? or when? 12 years ago?\
and doing what, that actions you do , seem slow. 100000 possible on all computers. endless apps or the OS it self just slow.

lucky you the CCFL screen back lamps are not dead as most are after even 5 years much less 12. a real shock that is.

Slow 101:
12 year old computers are slow, all are that old , (progress = speed)
12 year old XP is now infected. most are, and zero support from HP nor MS.
The HDD is slow, if not upgraded to SSD all HDD are slow and pathetic, try a new SSD and see the one thing that can make any PC go vastly faster, SSD, spend $100.
the HDD is fragmented run defrag now.
the OS is corrupted, as all are this old. (see virus and malware )

best is to retire it, get PC that is 2007 year or newer.
with w7 or newer.
and win, and have future.

do not invest cash in this junk PC for at least the reason of CCLF
if those die as they surely will , the cost to fix it as huge.
Id have never attempted to up grade any NX PC
none on the HP official retired list

Computer very slow and sluggish. Microsoft office documents open very slowly. General performance slow.

Delete all temp & internet temp files and just check if any AV is scanning in the background. AVG / Kapersky / Mcafee do these background scans silently sometimes. Maybe that is slowing down the pc. Disconnect from lan and internet and try wkg on the pc

My Toshiba satellite Laptop is very slow

i had the same problem with my computer. it may be that you have downloaded too many things. it loads onto your RAM storage, (computer files), and when it gets full, it goes onto the harddrive, (where you access files and things). clear up internet files and anything you don't need. if that is stilll slow upgrade your RAM. it fixed my pc

Writing to DVD takes excessive amount of time

The problem is that you might not have sufficient memory. Try burning @ 8x. Burning DVDs at 16x is a speed higher than the speed @ which file transfer takes place within the pc. So the lack of availability of memory slows down the proces. I once had the same problem.

I hope u find it helpful sir...
