You could add more RAM, this is a common upgrade you would need to fine out what kind of RAM it takes.

You could go a bit further and find out the processor socket and get a faster processor.

If you could give me the full model e.g. L300-12Y number al be able to tell you and give you some more info.

Ok memory specification is DDR2 667Mhz or PC2-5300. You can search for another stick of this and add it.

looking around seems the processor socket is socket 478. I'll need to look around a bit more, laptop processors are really hard to find.

Non laptop graphics cards are virtually impossible to upgrade an that's if you are lucky to have a dedicated card and not a integrated one. As for the processor in most laptops you will find that you can not upgrade the processor as they are hard to find, and it could be soldered directly to the mobo.

Upgrade the ram and the hard drive as that is about as much as you can upgrade.
