The RAM can be bumped to 2 GBs (2 x 1 GB PC3200) the processor you won't be able to. I'd recommend looking at refurbed computers I'm sure you could find one at least twice as good as this for $100 or less.

Hello there,
The image below indicates the minimum and recommended system requirements of WSOP most probably you will be able to play the game. The problem might be your Adobe Flash Player or your Internet Explorer version. If your Windows Xp Home is genuine you might consider updating or download a Mozilla Firefox.
The links for Adobe and Firefox are located below the image.

Flash Player
Mozilla Browser
From what I know Windows XP by default have an Internet Explorer v.6.0 that is why you need to update your Windows. by the way you have to download Flash player if you have Internet Explorer v.7. if this does not work try the step below
1. Download the Mozilla Firefox browser and install setup 5.0.1exe. 2. Download Flash Player it will automatically update your Flash.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello, Jim.

Dell's official position is that the maximum memory for this PC is 1 GB. But, it may be able to support 2 GB, per Intel's specs.

But, to answer your question - yes - you can increase your memory amount to 1 GB. Since the system has 2 memory slots, you could conceivably have (2) 512KB modules (total 1 GB). If your system already has 1 module of 512 KB, you could add another. Just be certain it's the same type and speed.

Or, you could have a 1 GB module.

I don't think that your computer's life is in jeopardy, but additional memory always helps the speed of your computer.

Hope this helps.

Ok this looks like a RAM Module problem, I suspect either the RAM is faulty, or the Motherboard RAM controller, is. This type of fault may possibly be remedied by swapping out the bad RAM and replacing, it. Sometimes it can be mismatched RAM modules? Or it may be the actual Video and/or Video RAM, on the same board. Again replacement is only option.

Windows Virtual Memory Minimum is Low


fairly normal occurrence but you should have a look at your performance settings
go to control panel
double click system icon
click the advanced tab at the top
by performance click settings
in pop up window click advanced tab
at the bottom you'll see virtual memory
click change
most common option now is to set the radio button to system managed size
you should then ok each window.....

Windows xp home edition service pack 2


Legally, well purchase the software. But if you do that I wouldn't buy Xp Home Edition I would go with XP Pro.

On the other end of things check piratebay.com or other torrent sites. You may be able to find just the product key or a version where you do not need one or that comes cracked.

Hope that helps.
