I have 160MB of RAM installed in the three slots (two 64 and one of 32) in my COMPAQ GATEWAY Pentium II 233 MHZ and I installed XP pack 3 system.
The PC runs, but crashes when I open any file, and I have to open it again repeatedly and falls
I can do to stabilize it?

The link below is for the minimum requirements to run WinXP. Yu barely meet the minimums. You would be better off running an older version of Windows or perhaps a version of Linux.

What is the full model of the Compaq? If the computer can accept more RAM that would help but a 233MHz processor is more suited to run Win98.

You can edit your original post to correct the word falls. I assume you meant fails. Crashes would be better.

I asked that you post the full model number of your Compaq. Without it, I can't help further.

Probably this mobo is a MITAC.

Great.

From what age is your pc?

Upgrade your RAM?
RAM is not expensive these days, 2 gb RAM is not more then $/€ 30

Happy is ONE who says I am an OttoMAN.

This motherboard is from 1995.
I tried different memory up to 128MB total set of 100 well-recognized speed (speed 133 that also does not recognize it) and still the same when trying to open any file: Crashes and crashes.
I think the mobo must have damaged the memory controller. As I can verify this contingency?, (Before throwing away the trash)?
