Hi ,iv'e just joined this forum , and was wondering if anyone can help me , i bought a asus X5DIJ series 11 year ago for my wife ,she never used it & it lay therefor over 10 years because i preferred my desktop , i looked it out a few months ago & had to replace the battery & i installed windows 10 ,
it seems to run slow so i was wondering as it is in new condition is there any way i could change something HDD or memory to make it faster,

CPU DUO t5870
HDD 320 gb
memory 3GB
thanks in advance

Swapping the hard drive for an SSD will likely improve it but things have moved on a lot in eleven years, so it's always going to struggle with some stuff.

If you intend to use every day then get a new pc , else upgrade it
