Default Re: Making a Laptop/netbook faster?

Googling "(your system's make + model) drivers" tends to work. Make sure to get them from the official site (for you that'd be HP, obviously)

Make sure to get the correct ones for your OS, and whether you need 32-bit or 64-bit (with a netbook, probably the former).

If you do install the latest BIOS version, make sure to be careful with it. Mess it up, and whole system is kaput (the parts are fine but you won't be abe to run them). So, make sure you're not running on battery (so it won't shut off mid-install), and follow any instructions it might give you.
Nothing is more permanent than a temporary fix that works.
