Welcome to G2G
An external hard disk will not speed up your PC/
How much ram is in your pc now ? Right click on my computer icon then click on properties this will show you what ram is installed. How much ram did you buy ?

HP Pavilion 540n
Product Type Personal computer Processor Type Pentium 4

Max Supported Memory 1 GB Memory Speed 266 MHz
Memory Specification PC2100 Upgrade Rule Max 512 MB module
Memory Slot Type DIMM 184-pin Memory Slots Qty 2

DO I UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY THAT THE MAX MEMORY SUPPORTED IS 1 GIG AND I CAN ADD A 512 TO THE 256 I HAVE?

According to Crucial.com your computer can hold a maximum of 2048 MB (2 GB) of RAM.
Now, you only have two slots from what I can see...
In any case, if you have one slot currently in use with a stick of 256 MB RAM, then you should be able to add that second 512 MB stick in there. That will give you 768 MB which will work very nicely. You'll notice a big difference.

click on me
In your 1st post you say you are using both slots. So this means you will have to remove 1 stick of ram and put in a larger stick of either 512 or 1gig - If you can afford a 1gig stick then that would be better. If you can afford 2 gig that would be great. Let your budget decide. I would try to strech to 1 gig at leasst.
