I have Packard Bell I media 5095 Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz 60GB hard disk (purchased in 2003), and was thinking about adding (present RAM is 512MB and max ram allowed is 1024)another RAM module of 512MB to speed up the computer. My question is would it really speed up the computer much ? If so where best to purchase a good quality module ?
I reinstalled OS not long ago, also carry out disc clean up and defrag from time to time. I notice for example that when Mcfee security downloads updates the pc clearly slows down. I just wondered if I increased the RAM things would speed up a bit, but I may be expecting to much.
Its a big misconception, Stick More Ram in and it goes faster. As above other things will have better effect for nothing like Crossbow7 Post above also Bigger Faster Hard Drive will always make it faster. Do not load rubbish you do not want and be careful of what Updates you load, I have just Removed Net Framwork 3 and its update as this was killing my HP Laptop speed.
