My son wants to up grade his computer. It isn't fast enough…

Customer Question
My son wants to...

My son wants to up grade his computer. It isn't fast enough for him. He is 10 yrs. old and has a Dell Inspiron P25T . Can the Processor be changed in this computer to make it faster?

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your Inspiron?

Sorry I am not the most computer savy person. Where would I find this info.

Technician's Assistant: The Laptop Technician will be able to walk you through that. What have you tried so far with your Inspiron? Have you installed any updates recently?

We have not done anything to the original computer.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

His main use is his games. We have other computers in the house he can use for general use, although he may use this for that also.

Thanks,

Being a laptop there are no real upgrade possibilities sorry.

Everything is custom made to for the contour of the laptop, so other parts are not interchangeable. The video card, for instance, is integrated to the motherboard and there is no way to change or replace this. Other motherboards would not fit or work with the laptop. This is always the drawback with laptops, that they are near impossible to really upgrade.

This is why if you purchase a computer for a child it is always best to go with a desktop which is highly modifiable.

Would you like any advise on a desktop computer to get?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
