I just got a HP Pavilion desktop PC and it seems to be running rather poorly. There are no viruses, adware or spyware and I don't have a million programs running.

The specs are: A 3.06 GH Pentium 4 processor. 512 MB of memory. 200 gig hardrive. Also I put one of my old memory sticks in my pc, but it didn't seem to register it and I really think 512 MB is really inadequate. :confused:

Well can anyone help me???:(

Hmm, maybe they used cheap RAM? No idea though I'm not an expert. Try buying new RAM if you have the money. And i hink 512 is fine, although its the minimum. EDIT: I dont think this has anything to do with it but what is your videocard? I bet an integrated.

I seriously doubt that HP uses "cheap" RAM. It is def the video card, find out if you have PCI-E or AGP. Then start looking midrange 6600GT or 6800 Baseline if you got money get a 6800GT.

Nah I don't think I damaged them, but I am going to take that memory back out.

one thing i hate about HP comps. They have a shitload of extra/stupid software installed on the stock machine. I would use use hijackthis to get a list of running processes, and figure out what you dont want. they really do load your comp down with promos, demos, lots of crap
