I have some questions involving late-90s PCs and Windows variants. Let's just avoid the awkwardness for now and get down to business.
I have here a 4500-series Compaq Presario tower, with 3.2GB hard drive and 32MB RAM. Runs a 233MMX Pentium processor, and S3 Virge Trio64 2MB graphics onboard(surprisingly powerful 2D accelerator, I must say!).
- PC100 RAM modules will be happy in its PC66 slot(1 of them), right?
- Will a standard Windows 95 licence key work with a Compaq QuickRestore version of Windows 95?
- If I stick 128MB of RAM in this thing, will it run Windows XP just fine? I'm hoping it will be at least as usable as Mac OS X Puma on a 266MHz G3 with the same amount of RAM.
I certainly don't plan to use this thing for anything serious eg internet browsing, email etc. as Windows is decidedly NOT an internet OS, but I do want to stick a load of music and videos on there, and if XP will run on it I can use the new, half-decent versions of Media Player, which will make it all worthwhile.
