This old PC isn't going to overclock easily. It's a Dell so I won't go into any details about that issue. BUT I will write the article titled Optimizing Windows at http://www.aumha.org/articles.htm plus expelling all parasites found with Adware, Spybot, Housecall, CWShredder and Stinger (all free items you find with www.google.com) will likely make this as good as it gets.
I have a dell xps-r400 with 384mb ram computer running WIN98SE. The computer came with an 8mb video card which I recently exchanged for a 64mb ATI 7500 Radeon card. I especially like the TV feature, but the gaming features haven't improved at all. I was using MS flight sim 2002, which seems to slow to a crawl and even stop. I recently downloaded RAM Def XT in an effort to open up as much ram as possible before running the flight sim, but it still stalls out after 10-15 minutes of using the FS program. Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be happening here? Any help would be appreciated.
Dell xps-r400/384mb ram, WIN98SE os, always on DSL internet, 30GB HD at 70%.
