my laptop is very laggy. The only upgrades I did to my machine was add extra RAM back in 2008. I got it in 2007.
I have been noticing it is laggy on start-up, on internet, and also in games. What can i do to fix this?

If you have been using it since 2007, without re-installing Windows,
a certain amount of "lag" is to be expected. Things just seem to
get slowly corrupted in Windows over time. I usually re-install at
least twice a year, from a disk image.
Things you can do:
Thorough scan for viruses/malware.
Find some sort of "tune up" program.
Re-install Windows, and get the zip back.
(Back up any important files first).
