Hi!
I don't have much to do today, I'm rather sick. I'd like to know if there are any good upgrades I could apply to my computer that I may not know about. I am rather tech-savvy, so if there ARE any upgrades, just tell me about them and I'm sure I'll have no trouble getting them. The exception to that being my BIOS, I'm not sure how to update and mess with that, nor do I know whether or not I need an update on it.
This is copied from my Dxdiag(Diagnostic Tool) and System properties. I copied all relavent information I found.

OS:Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit (Build 6.1 7601) Service pack 1
System manufacturer: Toshiba
System model: Satellite L855D
BIOS: InsydeH2O Version CCB.03.72.021.30
Processo: AMD A8-4500M APU Radeon (graphics 1.90 GHz - 4 CPUs)
Memory: 6144 MB RAM
directX version: DirectX 11

I also use Comodo Dragon antivirus and protection, as well as Malwarebytes Malware protection. Both of which I keep updated.
Thank you in advance.

Aside from using an SSD instead of a standard HDD, there isn't much you can do as you have a laptop. In general, laptops can't be upgraded. The only items replacable are typically the RAM, HDD, and CD/DVD.

How would I go about acquiring SSD ?
Is it something that can be updated per internet, or is it something I physically have to add to my computer?

Interesting. So, if I wanted to buy a SSD that would equal or surpass my current RAM, which is 6GB, what would you recommend?

An SSD replaces the hard drive, not the RAM. SSD's are more expensive than hard drives and they come in smaller capacities. You'd have to see how much space you are using on the hard drive now and get an SSD that would suffice. If the SSD is the only drive in a computer/laptop then it really shouldn't be less than 96 or 128GB, with smaller drives you can easily run out of room and require additional storage. You can also take your existing hard drive and turn it into an external to store media files to free up space.

Ahh, I see.
Thank you so much for your time.
Also, can you tell if my BIOS should be updated or not? I haven't the slightest idea how to access it or check if it needs an update.

The BIOS only needs to be updated if it resolves a specific issue you are having or if it adds something of value. Generally you don't need to update the BIOS.

What is the full and exact model of the Toshiba you have? There's a sticker on the bottom, for example L855D-S5242
