It is possible to reformat the system and reinstall Windows.
Adding Extram RAM and replacing the motherboard is not cost effective as you could buy a better system for the cost of the parts.

I have a dell latitude cpx computer i m tryin to figure out how to hook my wireless internet to it it dont have a place for an ethernet to go


This laptop does not have ethernet or wireless capabilities. You can't connect this to a wireless network.
You would need to buy a PC extension card and use it from the extension connector slot.

I have installed Belkin N router onto my computer, however my laptop is not pickin the signal up and I cannot connect to the internet on the laptop just the computer


If you do not have an 'N' compatible wireless adapter in your laptop, make sure you set the Belkin to 'B/G' compatability mode. Also, the type of security if an older laptop is probably limmited to WPA-PSK, and you would need to set that up in the router as well. Extremely old laptop wireless adapters may be limmited to WEP, which is an old an unreliable security encryption.

Windows NT and WiFi????


You can put xp on with no problems - i'm writing this on a cpx with just 128mb RAM and XP. But when you try to use any anti virus you may find it runs very slowly. I'd recommend getting xp and maybe trying a processor friendly anti virus like AVG if you're planning to go online a lot. Hope this helps.

Not connecting to internet


The CPX doesn't have Wireless capabilities, unless you get a USB Wireless adapter. For now, use the Yellow Network lead to connect it to your router or modem, and then purchase a USB Wi-Fi adapter if you want to move it around more.
