You could wipe it clean as long as you have a windows installation disc to re install but you may have to back up any drivers and save to an external device incase the drivers are unavailable as a download. The problem with this unit is that there is only a 3.8GB hard disk drive and win XP will take atleast 2GB and still not leave much room for programmes to be installed. I would think you were at the maximum amount of memory as normally 160mb is the max, so unless you have a copy of windows 98SE which doesn't take up as much hard drive space, i would just uninstall any programmes from the laptop you don't use and try to gain space that way.
