Reinstall your VGA driver from right clicking on computer>properties>device manager>display adapter>driver>uninstal. Keep ur XP CD in ur CD/DVD rom, windows will detect the hardware automatically and follow the instructions. If windows does not have a compatable driver, follow the link below for the official site of toshiba to download the driver for your laptop for free.

I have hopelessly slow windows xp, Dell Dimension 2400, 2.52GHz, 384 MB of RAM [2002, owned since 2004] Have deleted all invisible startups, run a clean virus scan, run cleanup/cleandisk, disk...


Hi,

It makes no wonder that the machines slow with only having 384MB of RAM installed.

If you were to max out the memory capacity of the machine which i suspect is DDR SDRAM and probably has a maximum of 2GB as this would make the machine much faster that what it is now.

384MB of RAM is just not good enough to run XP properly these days.

If the machine is still in good working order (apart from it being slow) then you could upgrade the RAM.


Regards.

Can windows xp be installed on a etower 333 cs


In short. NO
this pc has a maximum memory capacity of 256mb.
With the maximum memory installed and a bigger hard drive it would run with windows xp, but would be very slow, but with 2nd user pc so cheap you could buy a cheap tower/screen/kb and mouse very cheap.
check ebay

What is the biggest wide screen monitor can I get to use with the Dimension 2400 and the integrated video?


The monitor (19-inch, non-flat screen, 0.24 dot pitch) presented a more than acceptable image, even at its maximum supported resolution (1600X1200 @ 75Hz). We settled on a more reasonable 1280x1024 @ 85Hz as our preferred setting. According to the documentation, the recommended resolution is 1280x1024 @ 75Hz .Many of the newer LARGE monitors are limited to 60Hz and/or a larger dot pitch...So..look for a low dot pitch(below 0.27) and the ability to run at 1280X1024@75Hz . Passed that, the size is up to you.

It looks as though when deleting the OS you might have gotten jacked and the rom drivers were lost.

Installing a new hard drive


XP SP 2 supposedly has no limitations on hard drive size so if you selected it to use the maximum available space during setup it "should" have picked up the entire drive. The only other thing I can think of is to make sure you are running the latest BIOS on your system, so you may want to check into that if you haven't already. I hate to say this but you may have to rerun the XP setup from your CD and make absolutely sure that the maximum partition size is selected and that it matches the size you expect it should.

Good luck and let me know how it goes. I'll continue to research and will let you know if I find anything of any help.
