* PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended
* 128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)
* 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space*
* Super VGA (800 × 600) or higher-resolution video adapter and monitor
* CD-ROM or DVD drive
* Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device
Look in System Information, Programs>Accessories>System Tools, I think and see what it reports. Or get Everest Home Edition and look under whatever catagory of information it reports.
You are mixing 500MHz and 80Mb. First is Processor "speed" and second one is referring to your RAM in millions of bytes.

Yep. Thanks for additional check Rockster2U. That's why I posted the requirements for Win XP Pro.
Your post raised enough curiousity that I looked your machine up. If you've got the model # right, that is indeed a 133MHZ processor and if you have 80MB of memory (max for that machine was 96) I'd have to personally see XP running on it to believe it. No, not even a sworn statement from Bill Clinton would convince me otherwise. Having said that, Windows 95 is about the only thing thats going to run decently on there. 98 will run but it too will run painfully slow.
That would be a very good and expensive upgrade to that laptop. Hope he gets the free EVEREST Home Edition and uses it if he wants to find out everything about his laptop in an organized manner.
I imagine it has 96 MB of RAM installed and is reporting only what is available for use. Seems a little high to set aside about 17% of total RAM for itself, but I never have owned a laptop.

Point well taken though - I admire your diplomacy, Major.

Strange, but since you actually installed XP Pro, the 500 MHz CPU report is probably the correct one as XP Pro requires a minimum of 300 MHz. Now you have me very curious.
You might still want to get the free copy of EVEREST Home Edition as it it will report everything in a lot more useful format. Get it here :
