Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Slow Slow Notebook (Acer Travelmate 290 CL51)

\015 I recently was given an Acer Travelmate 290 model CL 51 laptop. I don't want to put any money into it if none is necessary but it runs as slow as molasses. (And yes, I know its not a new model...) So will I see an improvement in speed if I upgrade the current 500 MB Ram? Is there something else I should do to help it run faster? If so, what type of ram should I get? (inexpensive if possible.) Thanks for the help!\015

Answers :

Mostly laptop runs slow issue occurs due to broken Windows registry entries. Fixing registry will help you to boost up your laptop. You need to download and install a Registry Cleaner program to fix corrupt or broken registry entries. To download a reliable registry cleaner, go to famous website download.cnet and search there Reginout. Which I personally use and recommend the friends. After downloading run all of its tools one by one except Internet Optimizer, to clean all the junks and registry errors from your computer.
Go to crucial.com,look for your model and they will tell you what kind you need. Upgrade of memory is a very smart upgrade, The prices are very affordable now and it will help your speed. Also doing a check disk and defrag of your hard drive, deleting all your tempory internet files and deleting all unused programs , Get the latest upgrades for your operating system and computer will also help. Also check for spyware and viruses.
