i need help with the hp dv5 laptop from 2008

Go to solution Solved by SupaKomputa,

well first if you wan't an instant boost you need to buy a SSD.

second you can upgrade the ram to 6 or 8gb, that is if you can find 4gb ddr2 modules (it exist, i have one).

third you may want another HDD for extra space, you need to buy a HDD Caddy to replace your optical drive.

Fourth, you can actually upgrade the CPU to Quad core if the model supports it. But this kinda experimental, so you've been warned.

Well that's all you can do.

That laptop is too old.

things i could upgrade

Can you consolidate things into one reply? This isn't instant messaging or SMS where it's not frowned upon to split a sentence into two separate messages.

also is amd a option or no

AMD is not an option. The only thing you can upgrade officially is the RAM to the maximum 8GB of DDR2 and 2.5" drive from the factory HDD to a SATA SSD.
