only had mine for a week - UK version Compaq Mini 702: 1Gb RAM, 60GB HDD, bluetooth, wifi, XP home. I have added the following and would welcome comments.....
swapped in 2 GB Kingston (£15)
4GB (£8) SD card in SD slot where eBoostr (4hours free or crackable) now resides, plus windows swapfile via control panel-system-advanced- performance-advanced: 2 GB apiece
windows temp & tmp directories on 160MB ramdisk (z) using Superspeed RamDisk Plus (crackable)
GMABooster to up the graphics core clock to 400Hz (free)
FreeRam XP Pro for occasional brain clearout (free)
XP service pack 3
By the way, not that I can afford the price but System Information for Windows SIW (free) says the motherboard supports 4GB in a single stick – why are these so blasted expensive anyway? – not sure if XP Home would be able to use it all anyway. Advice?
Also use Mozilla, Firefox, Office 2003, Avira, Spotify, Windows Defender, Spybot, CCleaner – all free software.
Plus best fix for the ‘dark’ web-cam is to load Windows Live Messenger and adjust the brightness via the software rather than risk cracking any lugs taking it apart.
Comments and criticism welcome……………..
