Does dell dimenion 2400 have sse2 im trying to install adobe premiere cs3

The Dimension 2400 is pretty old.
You may not have enough memory to install. Check to see what Adobe required by way of hard drive space, CPU speed, and memory.

I have no idea what sse2 is.

Cpu to support sse2

Highest model cpu your board can support is the AMD Athlon XP model 3200. This is not a dual core cpu. You would need to upgrade to a newer motherboard in order to use a dual or quad core cpu. Hope this helps.

Installing adobe premiere elements 7

SSE2 instruction set is a new set of instructions that has been built into the processor chips usually to enhance the performance of the computer. If you are using an older computer/processor, (possibly manufactured before 2001, when the SSE2 was introduced) you may not be able to install the applications that require the SSE2 instruction set on your computer.
