Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Can I change RAM for COMPAQ- LAPTOP C301TU of 1.66 GHz; 256 MB; 60 GB to improve processing speed of Laptop. Date of purchase 24.12.06

Answers :

Upgrading your ram will not increase your processing speed. You can increase it but with your current setup my first recommendation would be to purchase a new computer, even if you upgrade you won't be happy in the near future with its performance.
