Hello, well basically i have this fairly old laptop that is ANNOYINGLY slow.

I basically want to improve the RAM and rebuild the software on it to hopefully make it quicker..

I am a complete newbie at this so any help would be very much appreciated!

Thanks in advance

from what I can make out - you can have 1GB max 0f ddr pc2700 (2 x 512 sticks) - non ecc. Make sure you buy ddr and not ddr2!

Sometimes reinstalling the OS helps more than hardware upgrade; cos as the time goes on, more and more apps get installed, the slower it gets.

Indeed i have...

if you pm me and let me know what version of xp (home, professional) you have the key for i will post you a disc as long as you post it back. Microsoft will allow 3 reinstalls on the same pc with the same key.

Would it be possible to get the CDs from microsoft themselves?

you have to buy them. you can buy them off flebay also. just the disc needed - not the key (unless the laptop has already been wiped and reinstalled 3 times)
Best Part of a days work - you need to make sure you have the drivers for the laptop - get these of the hp website. In my experience the wirelass card, lan card, graphics & audio drivers do not always get installed correctly with a clean sweep. Download the drvers first & keep them on a usb stick
