Hello to all the good folk at Dani Web !!!
I have a Dell Dimention 3000, Windows XP Pro., 2.8GHz process.
It was given to me and I had to replace the hard drive in it. It also had only 256 MB of RAM, PC3200, NON-ECC , and so I wanted to max out the RAM and make my son a quick , clean computer for him to learn on. With the 256 MB of RAM in it, it took 47 seconds to go from the start button to AVG & ZoneALarm popping up in the tray. I figured that when I bought 2, 1 gig memeory sticks , that the computer would at least lod up faster. But, it still takes 47 seconds.
When I go to msconfig, the only thing that loads up at startup is AVG & Zone Alarm. When I check to see if the system recognizes the 2 Gigs of RAM, it does. It has a Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.8GHz process. in it. I haven't YET updated it through Microsoft but I will when I figure out why it isn't any faster.
If anyone has any help, I sure would appreciate it !!!
Thank you !
by the way, the RAM I took out says 256MB DDR-400MGz-CL3, PC3200U-30330, on it. Both of the RAM sticks I put in it say Pacific Memory , PC3200(CL2.5) , 1GB DDR-Dim
