Upgrading RAM and Hard Drive for Toshiba L455D

I am working on computers again and wanted to share the fixing and upgrading of this Toshiba Satellite L455D. It came with Windows 7 (32-bit) and part of the upgrade involved removing viruses, fixing the registry, defragging the drive, BIOS update and removing lots of bloatware. Last but certainly not least the RAM was doubled from 2GB to 4GB and replaced an ancient hard drive (5400rpm) with a solid state drive. 🙂

It was so bad it took around 5 minutes to simply boot up into the desktop. Plus, when I tried doing a re-assessment of the Windows Experience Index score it failed to complete! Afterwards, as you can see in the video it boots up a lot faster!
