Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Sir, you can upgrade your Hard to 80/120 but, it will work, but due to old BIOS systems, you may get false indications under your BIOS that a 20 or 40GB hard is attached, but the Operating System(Windows) will detect it perfectly, BUT YES do remember that you can only attach DMA/ATA(66) IDE Hard Drives, its a technical term but you should know it.
Now comes the Processor part, yes you can also upgrade your Processor with-in the Pentium III range, and having the system buss of 133mhz.
If you have any questions/problems, do ask me, I'm here to help.
If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.
Concerned, Nooh

    How much pictures and music can 1.60 GHz, 0.99GB of ram hold on a Windows XP


    You need to find out how big the hard disk drive is in order to determine how much music and pictures can it held (in My Computer rght click on Local Disk (C) and Properties to see the size of it - do the same if you have a D drive as you may have a partitioned hard drive). 1.6 GHz is the speed of the processor and 1GB RAM is the random-access memory which is a volatile types of memory, not the storage part of your computer. But to give you an idea, a 40GB hard drive can store up to 10000 MP3 songs or high quality pictures.

    Can windows 7 be installed on asus k8v-mx mb with amd sempron 2.4 1gb ddr1ram


    this is the minimum spec for Windows 7:

    • Processor: 1 GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor
    • Memory: 1 GB of system memory
    • Hard drive: 16 GB of available disk space
    • Video card: Support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128MB memory (in order to enable Aero theme)
    • Drive: DVD-R/W drive
    • Internet connection (to download the Beta and get updates)
    Its not the motherboard, its the processor speed, RAM size, and hard drive space, and video card capability that counts.Your processor speed well meets this criteria and also your RAM size is within spec for Windows 7, and im sure you will have in excess of 16GiG hard drive space. So its all down to your video card. You may need to install DirectX 9.Hope this helps :)

    Typing lags in quark


    It sounds like your computer does not meet the recommended requirements. They are listed below for version 8:
  • G5 PowerPC processor or Intel processor (G4 minimum)
  • 1GB RAM (256MB minimum)
  • 1GB hard disk space
  • DVD-ROM drive
  • If you only meet minimum requirements then it is likely to lag as you are experiencing. To fix the problem you could try and install more memory in the system.
