OMG!! doogie812, quit giving people bad advice. From what you have suggested, you know nothing about computer hardware. You can upgrade the processor in this system and it will not effect the OS one bit, except make it process the data a little quicker. With this system, if you had done any research at all, it only comes with 1GB of memory, you should of suggested to this person to add more memory.

For the most part that is not doable. You cannot switch processors in mid stream. Given the fact that AMD and INTEL have boat loads invested in there chip sets, Windows detects this. Changing hardware on your software will result in a major slowdown in your operating system. You will have to reload. Many people think there slow computer is a result of the microprocessor, this is wrong!.
It is the lack of memory and poor design of the buss structure that results in slow computing.
