    Friends, I am using AMD processor laptop, 4 Gb RAM. But my laptop running very slow.
    If i increase the RAM size to 8 gb, this problem can be solved?
    Or any other solution for this?

    I have large size software also in my laptop, is that a problem for this slow running?

    You system is good, it should not be slow. Try reinstalling your windows, may be your laptop is infected by some virus.

    Hello,
    If you are running Win look at the processes and other metrics at Performance Monitor Tools. If you are lucky it is just a program/application pulls your system back.
    Look at disk statistics as well: sometimes an AntiVirus software checks the whole system, that uses hdd pretty much.
    Upgrading to SSD drive increases speed very much.
    Chill

    Your system is good, I think your system is affected by viruses. I think system re-installation can be solve this problem. Use a good anti-virus software. Which will help you to secure your computer.

    Clear the temporary files, defragment the drives, and make some free space in the drive where in the OS is installed. I hope upon working on these stuffs the performance would kick start a better performance.

    It could be your hard drive getting weak. An SSD hard drive will run very fast and be much more reliable too.

    I just put one in and it restarts windows in 18 seconds with NO lag starting large programs immediately after restart.

    Very impressive speeds.

    It was the same problem with my laptop.
    The reason is, a LOT of dust on the fan.

    Your system configuration is good, I think it is affected by viruse and malwares. Re-installation will solve the problem. Use anti-virus software and clear temporary files. It will help you out.

    If you will just add another RAM to your laptop, it will just slightly increase the speed. However if you need to boost up your performance, then add new SSD to your PC, increase RAM and this will definitely help you to open your hungry programs.
