I purchased AVG but it didn't install properly so I cancelled the installation. Now how did I install the product I've already purchased? I have the license number.


Most probably it seems to be a low ram problem but you should match the specifications with your machine to find the culprit.
here are the specifications

Processor Intel Pentium 1.5 GHz Memory 512 MB RAM Hard disk free space (for installation) 750 MB HDD Recommended system requirements
Processor Intel Pentium 1.8 GHz Memory 512 MB RAM Hard disk free space (for installation) 1200 MB HDDI guess you lack something among them please verify them .
If you re still not able to resolve just comment with error message

If you have less than 512 MB of Ram that is your problem. Add more ram to increase the speed of the computer. You can get ram here. http://www.crucial.com/ Just click "Scan My System" and they will tell you what you have and what you can install with the price. Best money you will spend on a slow computer. Also runs disk cleanup and remove all it finds.

Long periods of hard drive activity


Most likely, it could be the amount of ram you have in your computer. If your running low on ram and it is using the virtual memory your computer can be running all the time causing a slow down in whatever you do. Check to see how much ram you have :)

Which memory ram for amilo pro v7010


http://www.fujitsu-siemens.ru/Resources/123/2080773523.pdf

Here's a link to the Data Sheet with the specifications to that Laptop in Adobe Reader format.

Looks like your Laptop came with either 256 or 512 MB of DDR SDRAM and it is upgradable to 2 GB of DDR SDRAM.

You can check to see exactly how much RAM your computer came with by going to Control Panel, double-click System and it should tell you how much RAM you currently have in the System Properties box.

The motherboard has 2 slots for RAM, you you could add a second 256 MB or a second 512 MB stick of RAM. Or if you wanted to upgrade to the 2GB of maximum RAM this computer handles, then you can take out the RAM chip(s) that is installed and install two 1G DDR SDRAM.
