Okay, so this was my relatives old computer from about 2001, and it eventually got passed down to me.
Recently, I decided to launch it up and it gave me the blue screen of death, like always. :/ So, heck, last night I decided to install a fresh copy of Windows XP SP2 Pro and went to town with this computer. I installed Sims 1 on there and decided, okay tomorrow I'll have a play with this thing, like the old times.
Go on it this morning to boot it up, OPERATING SYSTEM NOT FOUND.........
I was like, "Are you freaking kidding me?" Like, never ever in one night has this computer decided to just completely wipe out an OS
Its specs are 128MB RAM (:/), 18-20GB HDD. More, like Video card etc, here: http://www.computer-specifications.com/specifications/Sony-VAIOPCGFX105K-Specs.html
So I was thinking, hey if I add some more RAM and eventually replace the hard drive, maybe it'll renovate itself and be 100% functional again? Obviously, that's some genius idea that will probably never happen but I just wanted to hear other opinions?
Is it worth the time and effort to replace the HDD and upgrade RAM, or should I just get a new windows computer instead?
