  1. 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 Also in terms of extra hardware, the whole machine is seriously outdated.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.
  2. so is there anyway to download an upgrade from the internet and Ive checked the temp and its fine,but my memory isnt good to much on the harddrive from files that havent been deleted is that slowing it down too?
  3. More memory.
  4. 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.
  5. Dual power supplies? Dual NICs?
  6. lol i didnt read that bit.
  7. 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?
  8. 1GHz processor, dual power supplies, dual NIC's, 256mb RAM? What is this, a Pentium III server?
  9. first of all thats not my PC i having to figure OUT ways to upgrade in expensive ways for my school assignment, so really if you hafve nothing helpful I would really like for you to keep you commnets to urself. I have a HP Probook 6455b w/ windows 7 and it runs just fine.
  10. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. RAM will help, but the CPU is simply too slow for that OS.
