Why in heaven's name you want XP?
The only good question you should have asked yourself is, why you want XP?
What is it which you can not do, which you think XP will do?
XP is very heavy on resources. It does a lot of things but Me is no mean performer.
You must write down(to be sure) the functions you expect XP to do before you embark on this adventure.
If you want it for fun, good idea, then don't worry about expenditure. 1GB memory, at least 100GB hard drive and upmarket double core processor will keep you happy for a while.
And why reply to a post 11 months later?
No. Here's why.
At just 128MB XP will crawl.
At school. they're running XP Pro with 128mb ram and its really slowww...
128MB RAM at 3.2 GHz P4 =...
Wake me up when its over.
please tell me
how much memory would you guys reccomend?
what processor would you guys reccomend?
please tell me
256MB just to stop from ripping the arms off the chair.
And 1.0GHz will be "OK". XP is a memory hog so 512M keeps it pretty happen. 128 is not a happy place for XP.
is my hard drive ok
for win XP
cause computers at school are dropping down and crashing like flies
and they have western digital hard drives...
i will need to get 1 gig of memory and i am wondering if my hard drive will play nicely with win xp
1G of RAM is for bragging rights.
Past 512M doesn't pay off like the 128 to 256 to 512 moves.
About hard disks. They last about 5 years. How old?
hmm... i know
mine is still alive and kicking. soo it must just be age or something like that that is causing the schools computers to drop like flies.
Microsoft ending support for windows me on July 11 2006
I am not an expert by any means but I am fairly sure Microsoft is ending support for anything before Windows 2000 on 11 July 2006.
What does this mean?
Will the OS stop working?
My answer is no. Windows 95 is still used by many.
butting in here
After July anyone using Windows ME will not be able to do any critical updates/security patches. I think that?s the reason people are concerned about using it after July.
Sorry, this is not true.
Updates and critical patches are still available after this date.
The base OS has had no patch for a year. You do find patches for the applications, but not the OS.
Am I misreading this information?
?End of support for Windows 98 and Windows Me
Effective July 11, 2006, Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, and Windows Me (and their related components) will transition to a non-supported status. After this date, Microsoft will no longer provide any incident support options or security updates. Microsoft is not offering a custom support agreement for these products.
