Specs: Windows 7
just bought a laptop last month and it runs so slow. not sure if it is the computer itself or the cricket broadband i am using. The computer is a compaq and uses windows 7. could it just be the internet i am using?

It is a compaq presario CQ56
that's all i really know
About the ram memory: How do I check that? And how and where would I buy more memory? I'm sorry I am not really computer savvy. I know how to use it but other than that I am a dummy.
