No can do on that lappy. The functions in the BIOS you need will be locked out.

You might get software that will do it in the OS but even then a lappy's cooling isn't the best and it could overheat quickly.

W7 needs lots of RAM to run. So it will help to install 2GB RAM, 2X 1GB sticks. It will help a lot. At the moment your running half a GB RAM.

It has 2gb of RAM in it, the computer is starting to run faster now, does the computer have to relearn all of the components? Its kind of weird that two days ago it was very slow and now its a whole lot faster.
