My Laptop is a Lenovo 3000 N200, it has:
A dual-core 1.6 GHz Intel T2330 processor
2.5 GB of RAM (not sure which exactly)
120 GB HDD

Now, I know i should maybe put in 4 GB of RAM, but, what else could i put into my laptop to take the load off of the processor and make it run more quietly?

P.S. my Optical bay drive isn't functional, so if you have any suggestions on what to use it for, please tell me

replacing the hard drive with a SSD in will speed up your system.

You can pick up an external optical drive that plugs into a USB port.

Yes, increase the memory to 4GB.

Groundrat is correct. Increasing the RAM and adding the SSD will make a NOTICEABLE difference.
