Hello Christa,

More ram would definitely benefit you for faster performance, but it also depends on what programs you are running.

There are some other factors that can cause slow computer performance like, hard drive space or if you have a virus or spyware on your laptop or not.

There are many free softwares that scan and clean your computer and speed up performance.

Hi Christa, from what you mention, a 2 G RAM is certainly fast enough, and I hardly suggest upgrading it before checking out some of the most common causes of why your computer seems slow. First disable any running programs in the background, you can be able to do that via the Start button, then select  and click all programs then startup.  Select which application you want to disable during start-up so it won’t take much time for your computer to open upon start-up. Secondly, try to defragment your computer once in a while, de-fragmenting  it will make files much more accessible and orderly, thus faster computers. Just click you’re my Computer, then right click it, select Properties, then Tools and click Defragment Now. This will take time and make sure back up first your files so that your important files are safe. Thirdly, try to delete temporary files in your computer. This are residue from your browsing or file deletion etc.  You can access this via the Start menu then typing %temp% in the Run option and press Enter. Delete these files and just skipped those files which are in use. Also, Scan for viruses, Malware and Spyware. These naughty bunch are a nuisance to your computer and may cause danger into your entire system aside from making it slow. If everything fails, then now is the time for a memory upgrade.
