woodchip In the context of Sconny's request I would disagree that ACPIX86 is not a type of PC. It seemed irrelevant to go into detail on this point.
x86 is a computer system that is based on Intel's x86 family of CPUs, ACPI or Advanced Configuration and Power Interface, is a specification that defines recognition for hardware, motherboards and other devices. Hence "type" I caanot see that "you can Update ASPI" has any significance to Sconny's posting.
Sconny You PC must be about three years old. I have the same processor and it is still pretty fast. If you had 1gb of ram and running XP then extra memory is hardly noticeable. I rather doubt if the mobo is the problem. It is more likely software related. Programs running in the background, register neding cleaned out and other clearing up needed.
