DVD Slow - O/S Problem?

  Lady Lara 17:41 22 Mar 2005

A friend has

450Mhz CPU, 128Mb Ram.... Win XP.....!!!!

Trying to play a dvd on it and it takes ages to get going if at all.... then it does not respond or it starts pausing itself.

Have suggested a downgrade to Win ME which will use less resources.... or possibly even Win 98.

What do you reckon??

try some more ram as XP generally uses 128mb for the operating system.
I would not try ME with that system
