Hi guys, ok here goes

win xp version 2002, sp1
256 ram
1218 gfx 5200
xp2600 >which is running at 2.09mhtz is this right?

what happens is that when navigating around, its unresponsive and sloppy!
one minute i can click the start button and it opens, then a few mins later i click it and nothing happens!
also when i try to close boxes i click the X but it does not close immediately!

any ideas, i think it may be the ram but other ideas would be gratefully accepted!

Bring up Task manager by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete and look under Processes Tab. Is there anything running the CPU alot?

system idle process is showing 99 under the cpu heading, everything else zero. Is that what you meant
