Sometimes it may be difficult to upgrade the hardware if the generation of hardware has changed a lot. they used to be a time when the processes had pinned configuration that means the pens appointed. nowadays most of the processes don’t have pain and they are painless. if your motherboard is manufacturers in a way that it can only accept the paint processes then you will probably not be able to add a new generation processor on the same. it might be a good idea to replace your computer. you may also need to look at the available Ram resources. Ram or Random Access Memory plays a critical role in the speed of your computer. depending upon the type of processor used you can check the highest level of RAM that can be embedded on the motherboard. if there are lots available try to upgrade the Ram and try to add additional Ram to the more slots. sometimes adding new RAM with higher capabilities give an immediate boost to your computer.
