128 Megabytes Installed Memory

Slot '0' has 128 MB
Slot '1' is Empty
is this it?

and the message just says e.g windows media player is not responding then it says end now or cancel.
but my pc is running slow aswell opening programs and it just locks up when i run to many and by to many i mean abouy 3--5 programs at once it crashes but it never used to..

More memory. 128mb is about min for XP and depending what other programs/files you have open at the same time.

There may lie your problem.

The spec sounds more 98se compatable

ive had xp for about 6 months and at first it worked great but now everything is just crashing or stopping running,and freezing.
so memory upgrade is the answer u think is this realy expensive? and what exactly should i ask my computer shop for? thanx.

best going to click here for your memory, just select your sysytem by motherboard and they will tell exactly what you'll need.
