I just did this to mine. I added more memory and now it does work better. I used the web sit http://www.crucial.com/systemscanner/ after I downloaded the scanner it told me what I had on my computer and a recommended type to upgrade to. It cost about $39.00 and it took about 5 min or less. Good luck... slow computers are horrible lol
Well that is a challenge. Technically, you can overclock it, but I would not recommend that on a laptop, (those overheat on stock settings). Other than that you should make good maintenance. Run regular defrags and clean out your registries, theres several programs that can do it for you (albeit terribly) if you don't know how.
