It only takes one infected install program to reinfect your PC.  Even if you just reinstalled the software, there could be a virus unless all you've done is install the OS and you've done nothing else, including not opening email or going onto the Net...

Got the poops and decided to do a whole reboot of the software. Rosie mentioned about the trouble with the comp. shutting down all the time could be overheating. I blew into the slots and a heap of dust came out because I had a sneaky suspicion that the fan wasn't operating too well. Will have to wait and see how it all goes.

Another thing to keep in mind, Aussie, is that 256 meg. is at the low end of what XP requires. Its "sweet spot" is 512 meg. That could be part of the problem with playing games, not enough memory, especially if the laptop uses system memory for video too.

Yes, I agree that 256 MB of RAM is very low for XP.  That laptop would probably run a bit better on W2K.  Even then, it would be nice if you could add more memory...

yes it would but I have been told you can't do it with a lap top. I don't play many games now on it. Flight sim I play on the desk top.

So.......  What shape do we have the old lap top in now, Glenn?

Is it even running?  LOL  Do graphics still disappear?  Is IE complete?  Can you access all web sites?

I don't know anything about laptops, but I would be surprised if you couldn't add memory to it.  It might be worth a try opening it up and see if there are any empty slots...
