have you tried formatting the hard disk and reinstalling windows...if that doesnt work try ubuntu that has a much higher chance of working correctly. plus did you just reinstall windows or did you use a restore cd?

The hardware specs of your computer arnt that bad.
I think that you most likely have some kindof crazy virus on your computer causing all of your problems.

Please note that if you borrow a copy of XP and install it on your computer it will only work for 30 days before trying to activate with MIcro$osft and it wont be able to because it was already instaleld on your friends computer. M$ will call it an illeagle installation of XP and it wont work.

I recomend booting in safe mode and downlaoding virus / spyware removal software. If that doesnt work you will have to completely reinstall windows or just get a new computer.

Windows Millenium Editio ( Windows ME )

That's your problem right there. :) If you don't have XP Pro available, try a free Linux format and reinstall to see if that fixes your PC. If that doesn't work, then at least you know it's a hardware issue and not XP Me's corruption causing it to be so unstable.

What specific problems are you having? "Half my RAM is broken," "HDD is getting punished," and other "Ahhhhhh!!!!" type messages don't really convey much information.

download ubuntu and install that...xubuntu if you want even faster, but less graphics...all the help i can give you, you can try some other distros but ubuntu is first choice...if i was you i would start d/ling it right now.

If you need money that bad, get a job :/
And for linux, go to your local pc store, and ask if they have any linux distros, shouldn't cost much, as for the mouse, it might not be supported by your hardware (considering it is 7 years old)

ubuntu is a operating system that is free. it used linux for its kernel and it will see if you have hardware or software problems. just download ubuntu for free, shouldnt take real long, maybe a day on slow internet.

XP needs 256 RAM to run well anyway. I ran it on less and it kept messing up.
So install 98se, a stable alternative.
Try Ubuntu to check for any problems.

You say you don't have any virus or spyware on your computer, but I somehow doubt that. What makes you think you don't have any? A Norton installation? Download, update, and run SpyBot, AdAware, and AVG anti-virus on your PC. A computer shouldn't get noticeably slower on each session unless it were contaminated.

Just try Ubuntu anyways, don't bother trying to install XP unless.....your a gamer.....which is odd for your PC.

EDIT: 9gb hd? Well xp i think takes up 4 gb.......so wow......what's your situation with money? To young or to lazy?

:O SCAM!

Umm, for $600 AUD you can get a pc that can run hl2 okay (on mid settings) and AUD are worthless (as ville has had the pleasure of telling me). So with your euros/amerrickan dollars, you can easily afford a better computer, all you have to do is work at a job that pays minimum wage :)
