Usually, a computer is sold with the minimum amount of Random Access Memory installed for the computer to work properly. Increasing the amount of memory will usually result in much faster processing. If that is not sufficient, it may be possible to overclock the processor, but that is extremely dangerous, and can result in the processor burning up. Do not attempt this without skilled assistance.
