I am thinking of installing Xp pro on my computer but seem to have a small techincal problem.I've seen on the mircosoft web page that it needs 128mb or larger.My machine is a 128mb but showing only 120mb.Will xp pro run ok or do i have to up grade my machine first?

I think for best performance you need at minimum 256Mb, get more shoved in, you will be delighted, it is only cheap and very easy to install.

Good luck.

you really need to beef up to at least 256meg for good results

It will run but a bit slowly. You really ought to get more ram. Download this little utility which will tell you really how much memory you have, plus what memory slots are free and what motherboard you have click here

Then go to click here and see what memory you can add.

256 is pretty standard nowadays if you want to run things properly. Memory prices are cheap anyway.
