5/20/2010 12:05:47 PM I've never had any major problems with this computer. My only complaint is that it's running slowly. I use my laptop mostly anyway so it's not a big deal.

9/14/2009 4:42:16 AM We bought this computer in 2001 or 2002, and really, it's been a great pc. Now I know that by todays standards this one is obviously old, small harddrive, outdated graphics, not running full RAM, but believe it or not for the things we use it for, it's been great, and even the graphics, being old as mold, do surprisingly well, even in comparisons with other computer's it usually ranks at 2/3 which for how old it is , to me, is pretty good. My wife shop's, we surf the net, and I play games, surprisingly, it plays a lot of games, but of course, all of these newest games, with the pixel shaders and such, there's quite a few of them that it does'nt play, but then a lot of them, I can't say I want to play. With all of that said, what would be nice is if your (PC Matic) program would tell me options about what I could upgrade thing's to. Like, Graduating stages of graphics that I could upgrade to from the old one's that we have, to the mid range & to the upper end graphics, AND so on with drivers, chipset's, mtherboard's, power supplies, and so on, Because all of us are not rocket scientist's, or high end, computer guru's that just have to have the next great computer coming out, that NOW comes out evey 6 month's or 1 year, or have to have the alway's best graphics, or fastest machine ETC........ But UPGRADING this one to the middle OR top of it's ability, WOULD BE JUST SUPER COOL FOR US!!!!!!!! Besides, we do have another one , sitting here beside this one, THAT's just a little bit better machine than this one, HOWEVER, I just happen to have been F-DISKING this one and re-installing a new operating system on it, to get rid of some small glitches & speed it up,,,,, YOU KNOW,, JUST to make my WIFE HAPPY!! OH, and is this computer running SLLLOOOOOOOWWWWWWLY, well actually considering it's age and technology of 2002, AWW, it's not doin too bad, HECK, it's faster than me and the misses, and probably faster than you too! But I'm sure it does'nt compete with today's. OOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL.

Things started to work better, even though I had to reinstall some software like Itunes etc.. but lately my PC is super slow, especially when I'm online. I use Avira and Online Armor.
