    Default AMD E-300 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics

    I just got a new laptop today and noticed it runs a little sticky. I know some laptops can be upgraded with ram and a better processor.. I was wondering if mine is one of those. I have an HP 2000-358NR Notebook PC and my processor is AMD E-300 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics.

    Thanks for any help

    That's just a realllllly low end processor lol. Upgrading to a sad is the only thing that's gonna make a difference.

    I completely agree, the processor is sad. Still, I think you meant SSD.

    On another note, it's entirely possible your laptop shipped with only 2GB of RAM (I've seen some E-series laptops with this flaw), in which case you should definitely upgrade to 4GB if you can.

    It appears your model supports up to 8GB, but it looks like it only has the one slot. It would be good to know what you have now, but you could put either a 4GB or an 8GB stick in there, although you probably wouldn't notice the difference 8GB makes. And yes, it's user-upgradeable; here's your service manual.

    Haha auto correct. Yeah I meant ssd, I had a 2000-428dx with a e450 and with an ssd it's night an day performance.

    Best thing to do is to format and tweak your windows. I found my AMD C-50 benefited greatly from that.

    If you don't know how I guess the best thing is to disable aero and unneeded start up programs!

    I agree with Helios22. Most laptops and netbooks are shipped with bloatware. Bloatware are software installed on top of Windows and most of the time are of no use, they just sit there consuming computer resources.

    Go to HP website and download all of the latest drivers, and burn them into a disk or save them into on a USB stick. Get hold of Windows 7 installation DVD. Don't use the recovery disks as those generally include all the boaltware that shipped originally with you laptop. For the activation use the key written on the Certificate Of Authentication sticker located at the bottom of your notebook.

    Last, use a light antivirus such as Avast. It is free for home use and work very well on low specs computers.

    Thank you guys for your responses... I think I'm just going to return the laptop. I spent hours doing updates, deleting useless crap and everything. It still runs slow.. I didn't buy it from HP I just got it from a leasing store.. so I think I'll just take it back :S
