Hello,
I need help with my extra slow OS windows xp, it lags freezes and shuts down by itself how can I help it.

you need to find out why it shuts down, is it a temp issue? download core temp and check temps. Also in terms of extra hardware, the whole machine is seriously outdated. However if you cant afford to upgrade the whole machine, add some more ram.

Are you being serious about downloading an upgrade? to upgrade you need some hardware which is inside the machine. So download some cash from your bank account into your wallet, then upload the cash from your wallet to the pc store.

256MB RAM is pathetic, upgrade to 2GB if you can find any (DDR1 i assume)
or better yet get a new PC altogether, even a budget laptop <$500 would run circles around your current setup.

what do you mean dual power supplies?

so this junky old machine is for a school assignment, not your personal computer, saying so in the first place would have saved you a lot of flak.

barring any faulty hardware, the general consensus is that machine needs more RAM.

How about you shove your school assignment somewhere else? Your school assignment is for learning, not gee, I'm a lazy sob, let me post on the internets and get my answer without any work.

Can a mod close this thread? This is not the homework helpline.

its not a homework helpline but i guess he needs help. maybe you should research computer components and how they effect the machine on the net for your homework.

RAM will help, but the CPU is simply too slow for that OS.
