Lol no, the RAM can't be 2GHz... The best RAM out there is only 1277MHz...
as a matter of sating my curiousity Lol no, the RAM can't be 2GHz... The best RAM out there is only 1277MHz... states memory speed as 2000MHz as well as a dozen other ram links i clicked... Is there something i'm missing here?
Also, sorry about my post below that was confused. That will teach me to try to rush through an answer while in the middle of something at work.
My point is still that we do not know the full specs of the OPs pc and that would be helpful in narrowing down whether there are more problems than just a slow cpu.
The pc is a Acer aspire 5532 but please note that now it has a 60gb ssd.
I can't bring any other info up because it takes about 1/2 hour to do about 4 commands, that's how bad it is.
Anyway thank you all so far, just need this up and running asap.
Simple answer, your CPU is garbage and can't handle Windows 7. There are actually two models of your notebook that have 1.6 GHz CPUs. One is dual core, the other single. The dual core one I would expect to at least be somewhat usable, if infuriatingly slow. The single core one would be a nightmare.
Yes was clean
The ssd said on a new install that the drive should be formatted. I took the laptop to a friend who managed to get Win 7 to update (107 of them) which made a huge difference and he tweeked it also, it's now super quick and got no issues, I've manage to upload all the photos in a few minutes. I wouldn't say this pc is crappy not now anyway. thanks for the 32/64bit idea that was gonna be my next option.
