The answer is yes to both questions.

 For the  memory, only install guaranteed compatible memory from well known memory makers to avoid disappointment.  Here is a link to the Maintenence & Service guide for your notebook.

Hi,

Your screenshot does not show CPU temps. You might try a utility called CoreTemp for that.  With the high ambient temperautures your locale has, I would expect that unless you use the notebook in an airconditioned room, you will always have temperature issues. 

 

Replacing the electromechanical hard disk with an SSD drive would help to reduce the heat greatly. You might try a laptop cooling pad. to reduce the temperatures somewhat.

 

I would certainly have more faith in Windows own Task Manager to view which applications were using CPU power than a general windows desktop app like you used.

Upgrading the CPU to a Core i5  from a Core i3 should  help the CPU usage issues.

I thank you for the compliment.

 

I hope that  replacing the processor resoves some of your issues.
