My old laptop needs a make over!

  grannyt 08:10 03 May 2009

I have a Packard Bell laptop bought for 4 years ago, which I hardly used. Now I am having to use it as my main computer and it is not as good as the all singing and dancing new ones. Can I upgrade it?
Details are: Intel (R)CeleronM.Total capacity 33.25Gb
Processor 1500 MHz, 1.50GHz,192Mb Ram
Windows XP Home. On defrag it has 25.57Gb (76%) free space with 7.67Gb used.
It often comes up with not enough virtual memory.
It takes quite a while to load on start up.
I cant afford a new laptop, so any upgrade suggestions very welcome.

Your only real option is to see if it can take more RAM.

Go to Crucial click here and run their scan. This will let you know if an upgrade is possible and how much it will cost.

This is an Easynote - but there are so many of these, do you know how I would find which model Im using?
