Set my PC a difficult task

My PC has not, so far, had to do anything that would really stretch the P4, and get it cooking. Any suggestions, please?

You could zip your entire C:\ drive up, that should give the Cpu something to do. ;-)

What about running a benchmarking prog.-say 3dMark?-as a starter.

Convert DVD to VCD.

Thanks, that download plus DirectX 9 gave it a run down the motorway! Not run the prog yet.

_Treb_, explain how, please.

Had to go back and D/L 3DMark 2001 SE for my PC. Some good effects! But why does my floppy drive rattle away during the tests? I'll start a new thread for that, so no answers on this thread, please.
