Customer Question

I have an Aspire V5-561P-6823 which I have never been really impressed with.
It's slow, I use a Dell Lattitude ES440 at work and it just frustrates me to come home to my laptop.
It was a gift and I really cannot afford to replace, but is there any any type of upgrade to
make it process faster?

Hi.Processor upgrades are complicated, and not recommended but it looks like this Aspire comes with a Core i5-4200U which is a decent processor. The two components you can upgrade are the ram memory and the hard disk. Can you tell me how much ram is it now? Thanks

I can remotely connect with you to check the compatibility and see if the upgrade is really needed or it can be fixed by basic tweaking, or i can simply instruct with finding out how much is it now and what should you buy and replace? Let me know.

no, either you can give me an answer or not
at this point in time this service is appearing to be a rip off.
Laptop technician: Kamil Anwar, Laptop Specialist Technician replied 1 year ago
It is not and you can request a refund if you are not satisfied. Hold the Windows Key and Press E. Right click This PC and choose Properties. You will see the memory in the installed memory ram field.

Here's what you can do to upgrade it and make it super fast.Replace the RAM with 2 x 8gb slots making a total of 16GB.Replace the hard disk with an SSD Disk which will increase read/write speeds upto 500/mb's.The RAM will cost you around $65's. What is your preferred disk size?Also do you want me to find you the ram and ssd compatible with your system?

I don't store a lot, a have a passport 2 GB back up, where do I get the hardware and how complicated is
it to install?
Laptop technician: Kamil Anwar, Laptop Specialist Technician replied 1 year ago
That is an external drive. You want to speed up your laptop so you would need to replace it internally. The process of installing is easy, you just have to open the laptop from the bottom and there you will see the ram and disk connected, which you disconnect and replace (there are also several videos on youtube) showing how to do this. BUT the only complicated bit is the process of cloning the old disk to the new disk, you will need to use a disk cloning software before replacing the disk, so that your existing disk can be cloned to the new ssd, for this you will need a usb sata adapter to connect the new disk to the laptop via it's usb port, and then use a cloning software such as maricum reflect to clone the disk. I can send you the links showing how to do this and where to get the usb to sata adapter. Also, if you have 6gb ram installed and usable, i am assuming you have 64-bit version of Windows 10. If that is the case, then the memory upgrade is acceptable.I found this memory to be compatible with your system:http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/aspire-v5-561p-6823/CT7774402but you can also buy other brands as long as they meet the following specs "DDR3 PC3-14900 • CL=13 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1866 • 1.35V • 1024Meg x 64 •"you can buy the SSD from this link -> http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/aspire-v5-561p-6823/CT6710774 or amazon. As per the benchmark tests, and the one i use is the Samsung Pro 512GB which is the best. It is expensive, but it's worth it.
