    Basically is this possible - it is a 233mmx. I want to run an avi video on the laptop and it can't cope at the moment. I thought that the processor is the weak link - it has 128MB of RAM. Please help. Thankyou.

    You're going to need to contact the manufacturer for this one. Notebooks/Laptops aren't easily upgraded. If components are available that are compatible with existing hardware, and will still fit inside the unit, the manufacturer should know who makes/sells them.

    Try upgrading the RAM to the 256mb maximum, that's what I have in one of mine and it plays AVI's fine
