That RAM. 120MB is much too low for XP to work effectively. The minimum usually recommended in these forums is 512MB but many have 1GB or more. I use 2GB of RAM.
Drivers. Windows doesn't find drivers that well and so on a clean install, (reformat, then install), you need to find motherboard, video, drivers, etc. Not a thing I know too much about but I wonder if a motherboard that old will have drivers for XP.
My Sister gave me her old PC with which i've clean installed XP Home, thinking the computer would be able to handle this OS no problem. It takes ages for it to respond after it boots up and the interaction is about a 10 second wait after i perform any action. It wont even launch task manager. I was wondering if anyone was able to tell me if the computer i have doesn't meet the specs. for XP Home. I've got a:-
CPU - AMD Duron 1.20 Ghz, 120 MB of RAM
Hard Disk Space - 40 GB.
Display adaptor - Trident Video accelerator Blade 3D/Pro media
Are far as i know, this all should be ok for XP Home to go fine on it but it doesnt its slower than than time standing still and freezes up all the time.
Does anyone have any ideas?
