by on March 15, 2012

Q: have a inspiron 1501 upgraded memory to 4gb and
it shows 3g physical which I knew..my problem is i upgraded cpu to a dual core 64×2 TL-56 .it works
great ..fast..except when I go on the internet it starts
freezing up..dont understand why..using IE and chrome …. I know other people have had no problems
maybe i need something else to make it not freeze.
thanks Larry

    There are so many things that it could be. The only real option here is trial an error. Make sure you have a good antivirus like Microsoft Security Essentials.

    From there run speed tests at dslreports.com and see if that gives you any insight into maybe your Internet connection being slow.

    From there uninstall any plugins you have on your browsers and see if that fixes it. If it does then start adding them back in until you find which one causes the problem.

    That should be a good start after that if nothing helps then see if you can get a professional to come on site to diagnose your problem.
