    buy a new one ... most laptops are not significantly upgradable and you told us nothing about the make or model ... which suggests you have a relatively cheap one, or an old one, -- neither of which is worth trying to upgrade.  -- grampa

    Laptops aren't designed to be upgraded like desktops are. What you see is what you get. Most modern laptops have the CPU soldered on the motherboard and non-upgradable, increasing the memory from 4GB to 8GB gives a modest improvement, beyond that only a little. Perhaps the biggest boost is to swap out the mechanical hard drive for an SSD, this improves boot and load times but does little for frame rates.

    You could take the laptop to a local workshop for an opinion but don't get your hopes up for a massive improvement.
