Hi all i am new to the forum and in need of advice.

I am really into video and film editing and have recently purchased a new camera (very expensive) and new editing software (which also wasnt cheap)

Anyway spent the last few days filming and yesterday i went to start editing on my laptop but it was running very slow!

So i decided to completely restore my computer to factory settings and try again.

Computer loaded program faster but during play back it skipped constantly and will be impossible to use.

Looking for advice on what i can do in the way of upgrading as i cant afford a new computer.

My computer is a HP pavilion G6
Current specs are:

Amd a6-3400m APU with radeon hd graphics 1.40ghz

8gb RAM (7.48 gb usable)

64bit operating system.

Just wanted to know my options for improving playback and overall operating speed??

You really don't have much of an upgrade path with that machine, or most laptops for that matter.

 

From Crucial you already have the maximum amount of RAM, that may change if you can give the specific model of your machine, but I doubt it.

 

The only other possibility would be a Solid State Drive (SSD), but I don't think you'd see that much improvement.

 

Laptops don't have that many options for upgrades.  You are pretty much limited to RAM and hard drive.
