Making HP Pavilion dv4 1465dx notebook faster?

  1. Im not very good with computers, I only really know how to turn it on and type. :(

    I got a HP Pavilion dv4 1465dx notebook last year. The RAM is 4.00 GB, and the Harddrive is 194GB free of 286 GB. It uses Windows Vista.

    My sister has all of Sims2 games and expansions.

    I always try and diskcleanup and get rid of unneccessary things when I can, but ive always wanted to play games with my friends but couldnt since I got it and BEFORE my sis put sims on it. Often I feel like my older desktop is faster than this.

    I was wondering if there was anything I can do? When i googled many people said 4.00 GB RAM was enough to play games so im not really sure why its so slow.

    Thanks!

    Download and run free Surperantispyware and tell us what it finds. What antivirus program is installed?
