So here the question, do you have tricks to make this dinosaur useable for internet browsing and play solitaire. Just as info I want to sell him a PIV 4 ghz I have with 1 gb for $ 60 and itís too much for themÖ. So install more memory will be a no go too.
Spend the $60 and drop a gb of memory into it and that machine will run a lot better than 256
