I feel terrible for this (older) woman whose PC I’m working on. It has the following:
- Windows XP
- Intel Celeron 1GHz
- 128MB of (probably) shared SDRAM
- Lite-On LTR-32123S CD-RW
- Maxtor 6E040L0 40GB Hard Drive
- Integrated audio and LAN
I don’t know how much she got charged, but it’s terribly slow. It’s pretty much near suicide to run Windows XP with 128MB of RAM, and I’m appalled that a company would sell her a computer containing that much memory. I don’t know what to tell her, but I can’t get all the critters off. I’ve been working on it for longer than an hour, so I’m suggesting a clean install. Plus, I’m advising maybe adding memory to the computer. I don’t know how much it’ll help, seeing that it’s only using a Celeron 1GHz processor. Frustration is setting in.
