@Timekillerb, welcome to the forum.


It appears that you are missing a number and possibly some letters in the model of your computer.  This information is necessary for us to review the specifications.  Once I have this information I will help your further.


In the meantime, there are three components that will help boost system performance:


1. faster processor

2. more memory - the more the better!!

3. add a SSD
