Hardware upgrade for Samsung Rc530

Hi everyone,


I recently managed to get my hands on a Samsung RC530.

I have been facing two different issues though:


1. When trying to install Ubuntu 20.04, or even when testing it out from the bootable usb, the laptop overheats and shut down. It does not happen with windows. I am trying out few other distributions as well, but I would like to be able to run the latest one.


2. I would like to upgrade few components as I did with my current laptop, but I cannot find any information in regard.

I only found info about the possibility to change the HHD to a SSD and to upgrade the RAM. Also this last info is a bit confused as some says it can be upgrade to max 8GB RAM, while others says it can be installed a total of 16 GB RAM.


Can anyone help?
