Unfortunatly laptops are not real upgradable.
With 4GB of memory I'd say you're pretty much out of options on upgrading.

I agree with fairjoe, laptop PC's aren't generally upgradable with the exception of the RAM. Some high-end laptops, which yours is not, do allow for a little more tweaking, but even those are limited. Laptops don't make good gaming PC's.

Maybe use the ready boost in Vista to give it a slight push. Maybe tweak the system for a bit more performance.

Readyboost acts as a form of RAM substitution, which there is plenty of. On laptops with their slower platter-based drives and RAM, there may be a slight benefit, but probably nothing too spectacular.
