Do ya know what kind of motherboard you have got? I noticed you said ya quadrupled ya RAM, so you must have 4 sticks in now, some boards dont work with all 4 in, so that might explain why only half the RAM is showing up. I would leave the overclocking alone until ya have a bit more experience with pc's or ya will probably end up damaging your computer. Go and see your uncle, cant hurt to try.

Its a celeron. THey are possibly the worst CPU's you can buy, and you wonder why its slow?

Some celerons are overclockable but most are dreadful at that too. Personally id bin the CPU and motherboard and start again with an AMD socket AM2 or if you on a budget a 939

If you have done all the following then a new CPU is the only option;

Prefferably did a CLEAN install of windows

or, defraged, scandisk, ran antispyware, AV etc etc


Im affraid celerons are compleatly pointless for anything other than wordprocessing. A AM2 CPU + motherboard can be picked up for as little as 100
