    What is the best (easy )way to increase speed on a P/C ??

    I have a 2.4 gb processor
    and 2 gb ram,,,and no more open slots,,
    Can the processor be upgraded??
    any other tricks that don't involve being a computer wiz??
    ,,,I have heard of something called "overclocking" the
    processor,,,what does it involve and how hard is it to do???

    Dell or some other computer company? If not then slap a bigger heatsink/fan combo on there and overclock your chip to a faster speed.

    Overclocking is a big hole you can fall in if you aren't too careful, you may end up with a water system before you know it

    Find your MB model number and run it on the manufacturers website and see what it can support and get the bios flash for it

    2GB should be screaming

    If its slow on games and such get a better or even a graphics card of you don't have one
