I am unhappy with the fact that I only have 2.1 GHz because my CPU odel doesn't Turbo Boost. Are there any free, advanced ways to speed me up?
I already do cleanup, defrag, all that stuff. I've already cleaned up the registry. I mean more advanced things, like overclocking, although my PC won't overclock.
Agreeing with others who have commented, you should not overclock a laptop...the motherboard is probably locked anyways. Have you set the page file? Disabled search indexing? Turned aero/peek/fancy GUI things off? I mean, there's really not going to be much you can do. What EXACTLY is so slow about it? My experience with i3's in laptops have, overall, been quite good. While it's no workhorse, it's done fine with many things I've used it for. Heck, my laptop is still running on a P8600 in my laptop (Core2Duo), and it's still chugging along. I use lots of Adobe software on it. Sure, it's not even close to as quick as my new rig in my sig will be when I get it setup, but it gets the job done.
