thank you for responding.i had a desktop in 96.i got lazy and let others do tech work for me for a long time.i got this toshiba l355 abt 4 yrs ago. im still learning ,i ve done a few things to this lptp. i put a 1tb hd from 500,from2 gigs to 4 gigs of ram.from windows vista home basic i went to window 7 proffesional.im thinkin all i need now is more memory. before i put window 7 i read i would need 8gigs and im running on 4 now.it fuctions well but at times it loads slowly or lags a bit.ive bin duin my homework. i ask a guy at bestbuy who had similar type and he said it wld not wrk if i put more memory becuase i have an intel celeron processor ,should i replace my motherboard or get more memory.i was thinkin of building one but i wanted to see what else i can to dis lptp 4 i build one.im no quiter.
Most laptop's cpus are not soldered to the mobo, in fact it is pretty rare. But your power brick was only meant for the current configuration's power. There are quite a few socket p cpus that are the same 35w tdp but it's quite old. You're just sinking money into old tech. What do you expect it to do? Any upgrade still won't let it do anything more than basic web browsing. Replacing the mobo is a no as there is no standard laptop form factor. Pretty much every model has a different shape. Desktops on the other hand are easy to upgrade. Every part can easily be switched out. More ram will not help, 4gb is plenty. The requirement is 1 gb for 32 bit, 2 gb for 64 bit.
You upgraded this rubbish computer with those specs. You have a single core celeron running at 2.2ghz. Even atom dual cores will run faster then your celeron. I am not trying to wum but your wasting money on a computer designed to be rubbish but cheap. Heck 6 year old laptops have over 2x faster cpu then your celeron. I have a t7600 cpu in my old d820. I currently use a 5930g with p7350 which I think is slow but come on a celeron single core cpu. I haven't upgraded my ram or cpu and you have upgraded everything apart from your slowest component the cpu.
You could get laptops 7 years ago with more cpu performance on basic machines then what you have.
My advice is just get a newer laptop. You can get them cheap on ebay with core i3/core 2 duo.
They are not hard to find and are quite cheap, most are $10-$30. Just take a look on ebay. Core 2 duo is the same socket.
everybody say something diff. thanks dude,it has improve alot with some advice that ive gotten. it has improved alot bey updating the bios.i had updated b4 @ toshiba site but noting.and they dont do much for you when it comes to something like this.but im gona look into it on ebay.
