U may need to defrag your hard drive also.

Desable unnecessary files from startup by using msconfig command.

Can I install microsoft office 2007 home and student on my computer with windows xp and 248mb of ram


You should have at least 256 MB of RAM to run Office 2007. It might run with 248 MB (did you mean to type 2048?), but it will be very slow; you would have to be very patient.
You can use Windows XP, you just have to make sure you're running at least service pack 2.

Does not install on 64bit systems


Please read the System Requirements Carefully.
60-day trial does not include technical support and requires the following:
  • PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed.
  • Windows Vista® with 1 GB RAM, Windows® XP with 256 MB RAM, Windows Server® 2008 with 512 MB RAM or Windows Server 2003 with 256 MB RAM -> (64-bit versions of Windows XP and Windows Server excluded); service packs for operating systems recommended.
  • Certain features require Internet Explorer®. If not present, Internet Explorer will be installed but will not displace your primary browser.
  • Available hard-disk space: 1.8 GB (some users may require up to an extra 300 MB).
  • For installation of software: DVD drive or high speed Internet access.
  • Super VGA (1024 x 768) or higher resolution monitor.
  • Microsoft Mouse, Microsoft IntelliMouse®, or a compatible pointing device.
Thats the System Requirements for the Trial Version. I am not sure whether you are running Windows Vista or Windows 7. You cannot install this on WINDOWS XP/Windows Server 2003 which have 64BIT Architecture.
Same applies for the 2009 Version as well.
You can update it to work with Windows 7 from here. You can update it to work with Windows Vista from here. Search by the Name under Software category.
Feel free to contact me if you need further instructions. Please be kind enough to Rate the answer as well with a comment if it solved your issue.
Thanks for contacting Fixya!

SLOW PC


If you really only have 256MB of Ram then that would be the first thing to change. I would upgrade to at least 1GB of RAM for XP. There are also many unnecessary services that are loaded on start up. You can find many tips on speeding up XP by shutting down services you don't need.

The memory increase should make a big difference.

PC slow while printing


when printers are being used it requires a lot of memory especially for larger files.

my first suggestion is to get more memory, however to validate that it is the problem press ctrl alt delete and go to the system monitor to see the ram usage during the printing, if its maxed out then you know its 100% needs more ram.

in the short term you can increase manually the virtual memory of xp so it uses the harddrive as temporary memory to make printing faster

good luck
