Hello guys,

Motherboard - HP 1858 /// Processor - Intel Core i3-2328M @ 2.2Ghz - Dual Core /// RAM - 6 GB DDR3 @ 1333Mhz - x2 Sticks ///

Any ideas anyone ? :)

About the only thing a punter can change on a laptop is the RAM and changing the Hard Drive to an SSD

Don't know if this will help. Frankly I would not even consider it.

The only thing I might consider is an SSD.

go to Crucial and run their scanner it should tell you about what type of ram you already have and how you can upgrade. If you not sure how to change ram youutube has loads of info and crucial has info.

If you look on the net by typing in the hp model number and seruies you might be able to find a pdf file on you laptop

If for whatever reason crucial cant find your system the try looking for the pdf file it should the maintenance one not the quick specs one

The HDD is Kingston SV300S37A240G 250 GB. Currently x2 RAM sticks to a total of 6GB @ 1333. I guess the only thing left is to upgrade the RAM a little bit and that's it. But should I got for 1x8 or 2x4 ?

Such an upgrade will bring little perceivable change. In other words, you would be wasting your money
