Hi miquelr, that machine isn't likely going to get much better. 400 mhz CPU is about the minimum for running any Windows internet browser. 128mb RAM is way too low for Running Windows XP. and having less than one gigabite of Free Space on your Hard Drive (1115 MB (6%) ) literally give your Operating System and Browser applications no physical room to spread out and do their work. You can follow the recommendations from your Pit Test results, but don't expect a miracle. On that machine, I'd consider possibly getting a Window 2000 SP4 operating System., but even then, it is an old, slow, and limited machine. If your needs are modest, you may be able to limp along with it for a while, but you should consider some new equipment. You could help yourself some if you unloaded that Hard Drive. Since you have Limewire, iTunes, and Nero Ultra installed, you may be using this machine for music and media. With only 1115MB of free space left on the Hard Drive, you are rapidly approaching, if you haven't already exceeded the point where you will be no longer able to save media to CD. Back up your files and media as soon as possible, then remove as much as possible from that Hard Drive, to give your system at least a fighting chance to continue in service. Best Regarads

I have a couple of "low resource" machines up and running quite well, though modestly, with Windows 2000. However, I keep at least 50% free space on the hard drives to make it easier for the operating system to do its work. Moving on to a new machine does sound like a good idea, if that is possible for you. But if you're going to hang on to the machine for a while clean it up ala the Pit Test recommendations. It may serve you modestly for a while longer, or serve as a backup machine as needed. Glad you have your sense of humor with you. Sometimes computer problems can be truly frustrating. Best Regards

Hi 'miguelr' ,

I have been following your thread and the help Doug has given you along the way.

On another Forum where I contribute the following site may help you decide your next purchase. Within the entire thread there is site in US for building your own Laptop as I did a couple of months ago also the one in Australia that I used. There are some good recommendations also within the thread that may help you.
