Making my laptop faster

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello i am looking for ways to boost my laptops performance since most of the games i play have been heavily modified through updates and my laptop is kinda weak to the point games like CS:GO at it's lowest settings 480p(yeah that's right! 480p!) struggles at around 20-30 FPS. Another one is league of legends which plays at a comfortably enough 40-50 FPS at the lowest settings possible 720p. I am not optimistic but i think there can be something useful that'll help. I wish i could upgrade to an SSD or even more RAM but unfortunately I am a student and my parents aren't willing to spend extra money,so i am stranded with this. Take a look at the specs and give an idea if helpful. I will try to save up for a cheap ssd but that is gonna downgrade the amount of storage since i use 90% of the laptops 500GB HDD

Replace the laptop with literally anything newer and you'll get better performance. Even an 8th or 9th generation Intel i3 CPU with intergrated graphics will run better than your current machine, mostly because that Celeron CPU and the rest of the machine is from 2013 ish, give or take.

Not much you can do to increase performance. To make it more snappy, an ssd or adding ram is all you can do.

The best thing you can do is to clean up the OS as best as you can, running a minimum of programs as possible. It won't help much, but that'll get you to the point of performing the very best the hardware can do.

Secondary: Intel Xeon X5670, Nvidia GTX 660, 24 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3
