Don't worry about the CPU (central processing unit). In a laptop you cannot really change it anyhow - you have to be a real expert to do that.

PS, just looked up your specs. You can put 2GBs of 533 RAM into it.

Many thanks for getting back to us with the problem cause.

Personally, I've never made a stupid mistake (and I lie a lots)!

Come back when the next challenge arrives.

welp i spoke too soon, i dont know what happened, it worked great for about an hour and then i restarted it and now its back to being slow as balls! i have no idea what could be wrong.

I know its not a hardware issue because when i put XP back on it ran just fine, speedy and every thing. So i cant figure out why in the hell my comp just randomly decided one day to be super duper slow. Even the boot up time is incredibly friggin slow. 831 seconds as calculated by that reboot time program.

Any one have any idea what might cause this please please please please please help


please

pplnick,

You did create a System Restore point? If you didn't, then you have learned a lesson the hard way.

You did create a system image using Windows 7 Backup and Restore didn't you? If not, then is there any helping you?

Sometimes we must burn the fingers to learn not to put the hand in the fire.

Maybe you got lucky and the system created a system restore point for you.

WIN + Pause/Break key | in left-hand task pane System Protection |
System Restore button | If you get a dialog showing two different radio button choices, then choose "Choose a different restore point" |
Next
button | choose the desired System Restore point | Next button | Finish button

What does this do exactly and how could it be causing my problem? the issue just randomly started happening a couple months after installing windows 7 on a brand new hard drive.

It's NOT causing your problem. A system restore or if need be, a system image restore could bring your system back to the state it was in when the system was functioning.

WIN + F1 | type System Restore in the Search box at the top of the help dialog | Enter key

then do the same thing except type in System Backup
