I think it's pretty much failed every test.

If it failed even one test in any pass, this is the problem. How much RAM is installed on the machine? Just for future reference, Windows 98 only uses the first 64 MB of RAM during it's install process. Windows XP needs more than that to install properly and a bad stick will give you the problems (failing to copy files) you were experiencing.


There is only one stick in the computer.. it's a 256mb. I suppose I just need to get a new one, but I am not sure where to get one from. Are their any others that are compatible with this laptop?

Crucial.com recommends This Memory. You should be able to use these specs to find your RAM at any good supplier.

Tiger Direct has These to offer.

Staples has These.

It will take PC133 SDRAM (144 pin SODIMM). The machine can handle 512MB per slot.
