This is a 2002 HP. It would take a lot to get it any faster.

It's funny. Some PC's will run for years and years and have no problems. Others become unreliable in a short time. I am typing on a Mac mini right now. I won't go there! Our PC is over 5 years old and the only issue with the hardware has been that the fan / heatsink on the CPU got absolutely clogged with dust and it would shut itself down at the worst possible time. I cleaned the dust out of it and it has been fine since then. However, on the software/OS side there are a lot of problems with slowness and blue screens etc. The problem with going to a new PC from a really old one is that you usually have to buy new software and sometimes printers etc if the drivers aren't available. Switching to Mac is a whole different ballgame. IME it eliminated all the OS issues.

I hear what you are saying, Brian. Everything uses so much memory any more, it's hard to keep these old one's online.

Mine is a 2005,and I guess in the computer world,that is really outdated.

I originally thought that's what was wrong with mine. But mine does not have a replaceable battery in it.I don't mean the big battery,I'm talking about the small one on the mother board.
