Get an SSD. It's the best way to breath life into an aging laptop. The speed gained will be instantly noticeable.

More RAM (4GB) and/or an SSD.
Don't worry about anything else.

Since you seem to have a 32bit OS, you can only use 4GB RAM.

For the SSD, a Crucial MX300 would work here.

Yes, the Samsung 850 EVO is a good drive.

No, you can't upgrade the graphics on that laptop.

Hi Guys,

Im currently running a windows 7 starter 32bit, and i want to upgrade it to Windows 7 home 64 bit. Can you help me on this please? Would MS office needs to be reinstalled too? Appreciate your help guys.

Thank you!

Yes, EVERYTHING will need to be reinstalled.
32bit to 64bit is a full wipe and reinstall.
