I have an old laptop that I want to get back up and running. It's about as thick as a phone book. I know it's a toshiba satelite. can't find all the specs and particulars, i'm not computer literate.
Anyway I use a modem card to get online but it's as slow as dial up. the signal strength range from 30-50 % while the quality also runs in that range. My other newer computer with the internal modem runs fine with a strong signal.
I guess my question is is there a way to tweak or increase the signal? is the signal causing the slow speed, or do I need more ram? and how do you add ram to a laptop?
