Yeah, thanks LEVE...

<font color="blue">TIP > Consider a New System

Based on the performance and configuration of this system, you should consider buying a new one. It may be possible to make some improvements to this system by following the other tips and advice you receive at PC Pitstop, and you can try them first to see if you can raise performance to an acceptable level without significant cost.

However, even after tweaking and minor upgrades it is unlikely this system will compare favorably to even the lowest price value-line systems being sold today. It generally makes more sense to buy a new system than to invest a few hundred dollars in hardware or software upgrades on an existing system.

Re: O/T Tune up your PC

Looks neat. I thought I'd give it a try because one of the multiplayer online games I play keeps causing mine to reboot in the middle of playing. Finally one server told me it detected bad memory on mine and booted me off. But this pit stop thing keeps locking up when it gets to the internet connection testing. Must not like my firewall sandwich. Guess I'll never know. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Are you using dial-up? They can be a huge pain with these types of tests. I had my firewall (BlackIce) running the whole time with no problems.
