If you run windows xp with 128Mb ram you are running on the basic specification for this operating system as a system builder and support engineer I would suggest that you increase the ram to at least 256Mb but I prefer 512Mb as this tends to run very well. It sounds like you are running an old motherboard because of your system specs so I expect that you may only increase the ram to possibly 384Mb
If you increase the ram don't forget to go into Control panel then System then Advanced then Performance settings then advanced then virtual memory settings then look at the recommended setting at the bottom and set this as a minimum in the box above unless it is already set to system manged size if it is leave it if not set the minimum recommended and then treble the maximum size.
