Hi, the system you have shouldnt take 10mins to loads, sounds more like spyware or viruses on your pc, i see pcs everyday running like old machines and its usually viruses are the problem or your running the new version of Norton antivirus alot of the time can slow your machine down that much, if you uninstall any virus checkers you have and download this.

You will probably be amazed at what this virus checker picks up on the pc...

Have a nice christmas

PC Model#Gateway mfatxnin das 300x ...Something


ok you need to goto the microsoft web page
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545

but unfortunatly you need a xp disk to do this
i am unaware of anyway to fix it without the disk as you need to rewrite from the disk to get windows working
if it was an oem install then forget it you need the oem disk
if YOU installed xp just get a disk that is compatable with your version

(PLEASE READ THE WARNINGS ON MS PAGE FIRST)

RAM upgrade for Gateway model MFATXNIN NMZ 300L?


Hi,
The system takes PC133 SDRAM, as far as i know without performing a BIOS flash it can take up to 1GB (2x512MB) most of these PC's are restricted to 2x256 so a BIOS flash could be imminent in this case.


Good luck
