Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Recommendation(s): replace the unit. Sorry but that would be the most practical/realistic with less challenge.


  • currently running a Celeron 1.3GHz processor, not that many readily available replacement Pentium IV processor still in the market that would match the pins and socket;
  • video engine is most likely built-into the motherboard and uses only 32Mb and therefore would not be upgradeable;
  • the 333MHz memory speed is likewise a factor to be considered.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Does your video support the games needed recommendations?
Most games have issues with a weak video performance.
On-board video has the most amount of issues and would have to be upgraded to a higher performance video. So if this is a laptop, you might be out of luck using it to play this game.
