We have recently bought a Compaq Presario 5000, 10GB hard drive, and 256mb of ram.
Recently We Have bought a Wireless PCI Card (EDUP Brand), and A USB 2.0 PCI Card (VIA Brand).
We installed the wireless card the other day, and the computer was working up to speed.
Today we have installed the USB 2.0 PCI Card.
The computer is now running rather slow.
I thought perhaps upgrading the RAM to 512mb would be helpful.
But another source has said upgrading the HD will return it to its regular speed (The HD currently has 4GB free.
Just thought i'd get a few more opinions.
