Hello smith_kelsey,

  • The first thing I would recommend it to go to or to see how your internet speed compares to others in your area.
  • What internet browser are you using? I would recommend Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. They out perform Internet Explorer greatly. If you do choose one of these browsers definitely setup the options to clear your cookies, saved pages, cache, and passwords every time you close the browser. This will help keep things running smoothly.
  • If you are not doing so already I would recommend running a Spyware program once a week. Spybot Search and Destroy is free and works great.
  • Next, you could do some hard drive maintenance; a disk cleanup and de-fragmentation does wonders sometimes.
Hopefully this will get you started. Post a reply if you are having issues or please rate this solution if you found it helpful. Thanks! Edward

Can you upgrade to a faster cpu than a 1.73ghz in a vgc-ls30e? If so how much can it be upgraded?

Hi, laptop chip upgrades are limited by what the bios setup of your computer will accept but I`ve had a bit of success by looking what different versions of the same model laptop are available, the manufacturers generally use the same motherboard in a variety to keep costs down so if there is a model the same as yours that is available with say a pentium 1.86 dual core then it will most likely fit yours too. Download a program called cpu-z (free on the internet) which will tell you what socket type your cpu is which is essential as there are so many now!

Hope this helps

Wii plug in

plug the Wii into your computer and then try the add new hardware in you control panel, make sure you are plugged into the internet when you do, I think the drivers may need to be installed when the Wii is plugged in and on with you internet connection going in case it needs to update the drivers. I sure hope that gets you up and going, If not just write back here and I'll see what other solutions we can come up with. thanks
