Hi. My computer has trouble even handling a Shockwave game + MSN Messenger running at the same time.
I was hoping you guys could help me. Prior to one year ago, I remember everything working fine. But I'm not sure if I had Windows XP at the time.
Here are pictures of my CPU usage (Graph of Memory Usage and List of Processes):
Maybe you guys can tell me if the RAM is too low or something, or if the processor is broken/old, or if I'm just running too many background processes (which ones can I disable and how?)
Compaq Presario 5330US:
Pentium 4 1.7 GHz
512 MB SDRAM
80 GB Hard Drive
64 MB nVidia GeForce2 MX card
Thanks so much in advance guys. This PC is really ticking me off.
**Note: I can get an additional 512 MB SDRam bought and installed for $120. But if RAM isn't the problem in your opinion, then I don't want to waste the money.
