ok thanks guys so its the processor, i go on crucial.com alot, so an upgraded processor would help?
You would have to determine:
a) that the new CPU is an improvement
b) that the new CPU is fully compatible
c) the cooling is sufficient (don't get a CPU that uses more power)
d) the price is worth it.
*I'm not sure I recommend upgrading your CPU and Windows. It's about $100 for Windows and probably that much at least for the CPU though I haven't checked.
Your almost half-way to a new laptop. If you could SELL your laptop and add that money to the cost of upgrading then the problem is worse.
**You can get a pretty good laptop with an intel 3000M series CPU and 6GB of RAM for as little as $400.
