Have an older computer which is brand new but I do want to start upgrading internally

I have a HP pavilion G7 series, and it was given to me by a relative that literally never even opened the box. I do download a lot of movies, and things like that and am just curious if anyone could give me any input on what I could change to boost the overall speed of my computer. its not absolutely terrible now but I think there is much room for advancement. Any reccomendations would be greatly appreciate it. As I said I am somewhat new to this aspect of the computer. I have always had one all my life, but this one I really enjoy and want to make sure I take care of it the best I can while it does everything I would need from it and more. I must add it does have windows 10 installed. And my goal is to learn everything I can, and maybe someday I can be giving someone advice just like I am asking now. Computers have always intrigued me and all that you can do with them so I am very excited as I am sure there are masterminds of the computers on here.. Thank you so much for taking the time and reading my post.....

HP pavilion G7 is a laptop and they're not easy to upgrade. You might throw more memory into it, but that will be very marginal in improvement.
