I have a compaq presario 5000, it came with 64mb ram installed, well, i added another 128 stick of ram to it for a total of 192 mb now, i havnt seen any performance increase in it though..? i only surf the web, but shouldnt it have helped? the computer did recognize the new ram and all..also, i only have 64% resources free wich is the same as it was when i only had 64 mb ram, shouldnt the percentage of free resources increased when i added the extra ram?
thanks!

Adding more RAM will not make webpages download faster. The "system resources" are fixed, adding more RAM will not increase them.

I would like an answer for this also. I have 384 ram but many times get message that system is low on resources. From looking at other questions and answers I have been taking things off startup. Would someone please give answer on how to increase system resources

MoPower440/JudyJudyJudy:

Adding more RAM will increase overall performance of a computer, especially if you're increasing it from such a small amount as 64 MB.

I have a Compaq Presario 5030 and a Compaq Presario 5900T that originally came with only 64 MB of RAM. I increased the RAM in the 5030 to its fully-supported amount of 256 MB and I increased the RAM in the 5900T to 320 MB(it's fully-supported amount is 384 MB). Both computers run much faster than they did before.

Keeping the startup list in the MSCONFIG "Startup" tab trimmed down as much as possible will increase performance, increase system resources, and reduce freezes and error messages.

If you need assistance with reducing your startup list, I'll be glad to help.

Go here and download and save the HijackThis.exe file. After you've done that, double-click it to start its install and to allow it to place itself in the C:\Program Files folder.

Run a scan with it, save the resulting log in text format with Notepad, then copy-and-paste the entire log here so we can look at it. It'll tell us what programs are running in the background, along with any spyware, viruses, etc. that might be present.

----------------------------------------------------------------

A large buildup of temporary and other junk files can contribute to performance loss and other problems, so you need to keep them cleaned out on a regular basis.

Click Start - Find/Search - Files And Folders, select the hard drive ( C: ) to look, then type in and delete everything that appears under:

*.TMP

C:\TEMP\*.*

C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\*.*

If you receive a message about a program not working if you delete these files, ignore the message. It's all junk, so get rid of it.

Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG, then click OK - Startup(tab). Remove the checkmark from the following:

taskmon.exe

em_exec.exe

(This one is associated with a Logitech mouse. I keep it and Logi_Mwx both unchecked, and my Logitech optical and cordless mice work fine)

mstask.exe
(If SchedulingAgent is also listed, uncheck that one too)

KB891711.exe

cpqinet.exe

(If AOL or CompuServe is not your Internet Service Provider, you can uncheck this one)

isdbdc.exe

Once you're done, click Apply - OK, then reboot.

Run your computer for a day or two afterwards, then post a new HijackThis log here and let me know how your computer is running.
