What do you want to do to it? Frankly any money and effort is better spent on something more current

Actually this one performing very well, except the sytem is little bit slow. So, am looking to upgrade it if there is any possibility.

4 gigs DDR2 is the maximum memory. T9550 is the maximum processor. You could install a 2.5 inch SATA SSD in lieu of the hard drive. 4 gigs RAM and a solid state drive would be easy to do and the best upgrades. I might find a small SSD if I were you like a 120 gig just to hold cost down. The processor I would not do just because of the difficulty. Cost for the processor would not be much, however if you are skilled at laptop servicing.

Thanks for your kind information.

I have that SSD. You have suggested for Processor-T9550, 4 GB DDR2 RAM.

Would you please inform me about the compatible motherboard?

You already have the motherboard used in all that model series and it will accept the T9550. There is no other motherboard you can install.

Sys Info.jpgHI!

I am getting a message on System info box which is showing "Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB (2.90 GB usable).

Can you help me to overcome this one anyway where entire memory capacity can be in use?

Hi!

Is it happening due to any kind of manufacturing mismatch or simply mother board capacity degraded? I have a license of Windows 10 professional. So, can installing WIN_10-Prof by replacing of windows 8 be a solution of this problem?
