Windows Me

Hi. Help! I have an old computer loaded with Windows Me. Ok it's old but I like it. Problem is I was to go to Broadband. Will it take it?
Also I can't get to sign on to ebay it won't let me sign on to anything, so is there anything I can do?
I have even an older computer which I am using now this one is also Windows Me but it's so so slow. Any suggestions?
What is the best new computer under £500

Have a look at Novatech for a new computer, you could purchase just the Tower, & re use your existing monitor & speakers. Suggest you opt for XP rather than Vista

Hi stylehurst thanks for the advice.

"Problem is I was to go to Broadband. Will it take it?"

Almost certainly it'll be OK. What processor/RAM does it have?

"Also I can't get to sign on to ebay it won't let me sign on to anything, so is there anything I can do?"

What happens exactly, when you try to?

Problem is that when I try to sign on to ebay or anything else it just comes up with page not available. I can view ebay but cant sign on.

I don't know what ram it has how do I find out?

I am still using ME on this 8 yr old PC along with broadband, no problems. I have just bought a new laptop with Vista, but tend to revert to this one, an old Packard Bell,it has so many programmes that I know won't work with Vista and I want to keep them. Find I have no problems signing on to e bay with my PB oldie, so can't help there, sorry.

You mean you enter a name and password, and it's not rejected, but you do get a "page not found" error?

And the same for this site too?
