Want to speed up a Pentium 3

\015 Have a Pentium 3. Would like to speed it up. How can I do this. Seems slow a lot of the time. Is there anything I can do without spending much time and money?\015

Answers :

The only feasable fix for this is to upgrade your memory, hopefully your system uses DDR memory in which case you can still find it at reasonable pricing, if you have SDRAM (pc100,333 etc) you may have a more difficult time locating it though many computer shops may have some used memory of this type in stock.
