Windows XP Pro on 95 Mbs of RAM! I don't believe it.

Whatever browser you use it is still going to be painfully slow with only 96 Mbs of RAM. Windows XP really needs 510 Mbs to be comfortable.

You would be better getting more RAM or using a less demanding OS like Windows 98.

I agree with Stuart. I find it hard to believe that you're running XP with just 95MB RAM in the 1st place, but as he stated, ANYTHING you do with that system will be painfully slow. Take his advice...upgrade the RAM or downgrade the OS.

As Jam and I have already said, 95 Mbs is tiny for Windows XP. Whichever browser you use it is going to be slow, there is no getting away from it. Nothing is going to be any better than you already have until you add more memory.

That depends entirely on the Motherboard you have and how much it will take, An Intel Pentium II can use up to 3 Gbs of memory but it is extremely unlikely you will get that much onto the motherboard.

You need to consult the manual for the motherboard/computer and find out how much memory it can take and what type. It will probably need PC100 or PC133 SDRAM.

Having looked at the manual on-line you are only going to get 288 Mbs maximum. 32 Mbs base memory and two 128 Mb SO-DIMM DRAM modules. As you have 95 Mbs it would appear that one of the slots is already in use with a 64 Mb module. This can be discarded and replaced with two 128 Mb modules..

However, this is not going to improve matters very much. This computer was never designed to run Windows XP, in fact it probably pre-dates Windows XP by over ten year. You would be better installing Windows 98 on it. Windows 98 will run nicely on 288 Mbs.

"Opera" browser is worth considering once you get the RAM sorted or if you go to W98.
