does emachines even make anything that expensive? This thing is prob about the same as your current pos, and I'll be more than happy to put in $25 bucks to see you hit yourself in the face with that hammer, but it has to draw blood.

Holy crap if anyone spends $100 on that shit computer YOU deserve to be smacked in the head. IDE Tech with a Pentium 4? C'mon guy...

There's like, 9 replies to this thread and 8 different ideas too.

Aaron it could be any number of things. Its likely a software issue, OS or otherwise. But it's an old computer so it could just as easily be hardware related. I'd fix it for free if I lived there, I have so much of that older harware I could replace any parts or software. It probably isn't worth it though. Don't buy that computer from walmart either.

If you have $200 you can get a good (enough) computer. Until then, I'd save up and take Tyler up on his offer.

One idea is to just blow it away and install Linux on it since you dont have your restore discs. If you're just watchin pr0n, surfin forums, and doing facebook & email, it'll work great.

if you have around 2mb of RAM and a dual core processor over 2.2GHz you can run most emulators pre-Original Playstation. Nintendo, Sega, SuperNES, N64, Sega Saturn, NeoGeo..

Or just go to a pawn shop and buy an xbox 360 for $50
