honestly, upgrading a computer or laptop upgradeable hardware like hard disk and memory is very simple and easy to do. I think everyone can do it without need any special skill. Although, upgrade computer is very simple but only few people dare to try upgrade their computer themselves because afraid with that the computer store told about warranty void if the computer or manufacturer seal broken.

No. The only thing you can replace in a lap top is RAM,HDD or SSD. and maybe the CPU it self but i'm not familiar in that case

I have a Toshiba C655D- S5518 & I am trying to upgrade it so I can use it for video editing for a short film. I need a lot of room and way more speed. My major goal is for Adobe After Effects/ Sony Vegas to load & render fast. What should I do? I'm new to this upgrading thing.

The CPU it self on a Toshiba C655D is not quit fast strong enough for after effects. it may be able to handle simple video editing but would lag on any high video effects. that's speaking from my 3g RAM and a HDD card. and in a case I think their is even a way to upgrade the CPU too a 1.8 and not a 1.3 if your able to upgrade all of that then you may be able to handle it. i'm not too familiar in that part yet

Excellent, but it would be better if in future you can share more about this subject. Keep posting.

Just out of curiosity - do people actually ask these questions or are you just upgrading and make the video for anyone doing the same?

Many ask me to answer upgrade questions, but it might not be specifically on a particular laptop model. So it's more of a generic answer that will help everyone with this kind of question. This laptop upgrade would be useful to most upgrading most current laptops.

Dear Mr. Reynolds

I'm buying a laptop very soon for around $600 for university. I'm looking to use it for completing papers, taking notes in class and gaming. Not serious gaming now just something that can handle games such as minecraft, garrys mod, killing floor so on so forth. I was wondering if you could post a video to help me out. I have been looking at a HP DV6-3147CA. What are your thoughts on this particular laptop? If you could point me towards a better laptop that fits my needs and price range it would be much appreciated!

-Thank you-

Well, the AMD C650D series of laptops offer excellent bang-for-the-buck and will play the games you mentioned at low-med resolution with the upgrade I just did. What you could do is get one and test try it out yourself. But buy it from a place that you can easily return it if need be.

We just got this particular laptop, and I've hidden something on it, that I can't seem to now find. You know when you get onto the desktop and move the cursor around to the top left corner and this vertical column of black and white icons appear?? I went ahead and hid it, and now can't seem to find it to put it back on the desktop. My 11 year is driving me nuts, as the webcam icon is on that column of icons. HELP

Thanks and that's exactly that's what I did, using Acronis True Image Home.

Nice job Rodney....

Many people are hesitant to open up their computers but with straight forward tutorials like this, one can see how simple it really is. I hope to see more "hands on videos" where you install hardware using the components you have covered in your reviews. I for one you like to see a good NAS / Home Server build-out. I recently built another HTPC using a Moneual 320 which was a lot of fun but I wish I would have documented the build on video to help others.

Thx weanus, Yea, there are lots of people out there that are a little intimidated by this upgrade stuff, but it's really not that hard.

Are you no longer unlisting your YouTube videos? This video showed up in my subscriptions. If this is the case, I think it is for the better. If people wish to comment, they will still be required to come here.
