So, my girlfriend's laptop is really slow now. She has a HP pavilion dv6653us (I'm trying to google the specs for it, but I'm only coming up with a shitload of battery links for it). Anyway, I think it has a 1.5 Ghz processor, and it has 2 Gigs of Memory. It's also running 32-bit Vista. Defraging it dosn't seem to work, so I was thinking about getting more memory for it. According to Crucial.com, the computer maxes out at 4 gigs of memory, and i can get it off their site for about $55 (bestbuy is $150+). But it also mentions that since it's a 32-bit system, the computer will only recognize 3 gigs for the memory. So, my question is, will jumping from 2 gig to 3 gigs help it become quicker? Also, is there anything else I can do to help the computer run faster? The harddrive is practically empty BTW.
