Yes but you might want to also upgrade your system memory to 2Gb if you currently only have 1Gb installed. A great program that will find the latest drivers for your system, with Windows 7 installed is called drivermax, which I use almost daily. You can use the free version which allows you to download 3 or 4 drivers per day. You can get the program here.

No, neither run well on 1GB - definitely upgrade to 2GB which I think is the maximum your laptop will take.

Im a diddy , glad you're sorted but be aware that Driver Max will upload information from your PC constantly. To do with drivers, as they say. I can't remember correctly but there is two parts to their software.

An upload manager (forget the name they give it) will be constantly running if you don't disable it, you need to find it in programs and features, or within Driver Max. Even if you uninstall DM this upload manager will still be present. Just be careful, this is why I ditched DM many years ago.

I've never noticed any issues but I do always change the settings within DM options & un-tick every box. I also uninstall the whole program from each system once it's all up to date.

Do you still have to uninstall the driver agent separately from the main program? It used to be that way.
