    Hi,

    I upgraded the ram last year and im running at top capacity for my model, 2.0gb.

    This really helped for a while, but after a couple of heavy programmes were installed this year (one software, one game) ive noticed it running as slow as before, its worth noting that my computer passed all the spec needed for both apart from the game where im running on 1.7ghz and it needs at the very least 2.0ghz from the processor, and i am running on the slowest peformance speed from the game itself.

    It currently has a pentium centrino, bearing in mind a new laptop is not in my budget, is it worth getting a new processor and which would be best?

    Thanks again, Rebekah.

    Hello

    My personal opinion is that Satellite L20 is not designed for heavy operations and it is definitely not gaming machine. If you compare price for Satellite A and Satellite L notebooks you will understand why. I am pretty sure this notebook is designed for Internet, Office and all simple “every day” activities.

    RAM upgrade is very good and I am sure it helps a lot but CPU upgrade is not the solution. CPU upgrade is not supported. You must also understand that every hardware platform is designed for optimal hardware activity. CPU, graphics, cooling system and other hardware components must work harmonic and without overheating. Stronger CPU means more heat.

    In my opinion you should optimize preinstalled operating system in hope software you use will runs better and more stabile.
