I just installed windows xp pro SP2 on an old 366 Mhz pavilion I had sitting around....The system is running incredibly good, in fact better than I could imagine it was going to....Just one problem that I have never encountered before; Every time I switch between user names the monitor shuts down or goes to standby and then comes back up......Anyone else encounter this problem before???? Any Suggestions??? I know that I am asking a lot of this small machine but I am very very satisfied with the 366 MHZ , 128 MB pc100 RAM machine's performance so far.....Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions... Have a great day!

XP is very Ram and CPU intensive. This may be the best you can expect from a machine configured like yours. I guess as long as your monitor never stays off, it shouldn't be a problem. Time for an upgrade, unless this is just a toy! :tazz:
