    I have a compaq computer which has WinME...the stats are (I believe because of dxdiag)

    Intel Celeron at ~565Mhz
    127 SDram
    and a 7 Gb hardrive
    everything else is internal (like sound, video)

    I would like to know if it would be good to update to at least Win 2000...

    I don't think that I should change to WinXP because I really don't want to change hardware at this point (would rather want to save up for a whole new computer)

    I would really appreciate any help/info you can give me...

    Thx in advance

    It will run Windows 2000 fairly well, and the performance should at least be tolerable. We have a Pentium III 600 here at work that gets sluggish sometimes, but it usually keeps up pretty well. Better to be a little bit slower than to lock up all the time ;)

    I say go to Win2k!

    thx everyone...:)

    btw, would the sticky thread made by bman be a good way to reformat and install 2000??

    thx in advance..:D

    It is a good update, but depending on what model of Compaq it is you might have to disable the onboard audio in the BIOS. Just something to look into. Good luck!
