Suggestions for updating
Hi all, as you can see i'm new here. I'm somewhat computer savvy but not enough.
I need some advice for updating a laptop I have...
It's a compaq presario 700US notebook, specs below:
Mobile AMD Duron 4 900 MHz
240 mb sdram
thats probably everything you really need to know.
alright, i have a few questions.
it's a pretty old computer, i think my dad bought it in 2000 or 2001. It's never really been that good of a computer to be honest, but he doesn't use it and I want a laptop for college so I see an upgrade opportunity possibly. I don't personally care about graphics or sound or anything like that. I just want it to run faster. It doesn't have to be top of the line but I can't stand how slow it is and I'm really not in the position to be able to buy a new laptop. I'm just looking for a cheap way to get this thing running faster so I can use it at school.
I was looking to just pop in some more ram and get it running faster. It runs pc133 sdram and what i was wondering is does it HAVE to be pc133 or can i get any sdram and use it in there?
other than that, i have no idea what else i should upgrade if anything. so if anyone could just give me some suggestions on what i can do to get it running better i'd really appreciate that.
if anyone thinks it's not even worth the update, point me in the direction of some cheap laptops that i might be able to work with.
