Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic, 1.9 GHz / 2941 MB
I have a dell inspiron 1526 with an AMD Athlon x2 64 1.9 tx-57 process with 3 gig of ram OS Windows Vista and web browsing is slow. Will adding another gig of sddr2 ram giving me a total of 4 gigs make system run any faster or am I better off upgrading cpu or after seeing prices for cpus might be cheaper to just upgrade to a better laptop. Suggestions?

Adding more RAM will not speed up web surfing?

What type of internet connection do you use?

Has the internet slowed down just recently or what?

Try downloading and using CCleaner to clear cookies and browser cache. Very good free program. Need to update occasionally.

You won't seen an improvement by upgrading the RAM or processor. Sounds like a weak/slow internet connection to me.

How fast is your internet connection? If you're using the wireless adaptor, how's the signal strength?

C2D performance from Socket 939:
Opty 185 @ 3.2GHz

Vista is a dog. How many processes are you running?
