I bought a Compaq V5000
from abroad. It turned out to have a corrupt copy of Windows and what quickly became slow and eventually unusable. I decided to use Ubuntu as a way of keeping it functional but even this seems to be struggling with bugs and issues perhaps with the software or perhaps the hardware. I want to try and save it so that it can be used at least for home office applications and surfing the internet etc.
I would like some help in finding out what its current spec is as I can't seem to find anything helpful at the Compaq site. Once this is clear, I would like advice and ideas as to if it is possible/worthwhile to upgrade the CPU and/or RAM in order to achieve what I want.
Any help or alternate suggestions is welcome and appreciated.
