My laptop and specs :-
Windows 7 (( Now Its Windows 10 [Upgraded] ))
Processor - Pentinum(R) Dual-Core CPU @2.3GHz T4500
Installed Memory (RAM) - 4.00Gb
System Type - 64-bit Operating System
Hello. Since many days, I'm trying to download low spec games which might work In my G550. But, most of them are lagging or so. I just wanted to know Is there an way to increase the performances by changing the RAM or anything that might make the game work smooth, If yes then till how much can I upgrade, 8GB or? Is there any problem by upgrading to windows 10? Please help me out.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
Similar to this article, increasing RAM may not significantly improve gaming performance not unless that you notice RAM usage getting to 100% when playing especially if you are running multiple programs along with the game.
Specification of RAM for the model:
Adding the same capacity and specification of currently installed RAM will max it out.
About Windows version, did you have same gaming issue when you had it running on Windows 7?
You would be able to determine if such is OS related based on this comparison.
Others rather consider SSD or CPU upgrade but take note of the costing if such upgrades are worth it than getting a new Windows 10 ready machine instead.
Hope this helps answer your query.
