    i have a 3 year old compaq laptop that has a 1.7 ghz celeron processor and 256 mb ram and its slow as hell . so will see a significant change in performance if i increase the ram by 1 gb ? or is it a waste of money .

    Yes, the RAM upgrade will definitely give you a boost in performance but don’t expect the world out of it. Your daily usage like your file browser (“My Computer” if you’re using Windows), internet surfing and Word processing, everything will be a lot smoother. You’re boot time may also reduce.
