laptop lags a lot although specs are decent enough.

Hello, i'm new here hope you can help me with my query.. Thanks

I have a lenovo g570 essential series and its almost an 4years old. It has 2 gb ram. I use it only for making word documents and browsing. It lags frequently and the chrome browser often says not responding. Is that legit? What are some of the ways to ensure maximum performance? ( i already have avast anti virus, ran ccleaner several times, and cleared cache)

thanks in advance..

Buy more RAM check your comp specs at Lenovo's site for your make model.
It will tell you what you can upgrade to and the correct type of RAM.

Although I agree that more RAM will help, you should not see lagging and not responding with this configuration. Check with the task manager whether there are any processes that are unnecessarily interfering.

Would this dv6000 laptop make a decent htpc?
Have no other use for it so figured I'd just use as a htpc til I could make a good one. How would it work as a htpc you think? No hdmi/dvi ports on it, but meh. Would it play HD stuff ok or no since it'd be running off VGA to a 40" lcd?
