The first thing to do is to determine what motherboard you have installed, I'm afraid inter something doesn't help much

Go to this page and download Belarc and run it

It should tell you waht board is installed

(Please turn your caps lock off ;))

What version of Windows are you using? Even Windows 95 and an older version of Internet Explorer, such as 3.02, will run very slow with only 16 MB of RAM installed. If you're using a newer version of Windows and/or Internet Explorer, that will bog down your computer even more.

Judging by the age of your computer(1995 - 1996 era), the motherboard in all likelihood won't support more than 64 MB of RAM. Increasing from 16 MB to 64 MB will definitely give that dinosaur a performance boost, but older type RAM doesn't come cheap.

You need to seriously consider getting a new low-end computer. You can get all the CPU speed and RAM you need for a computer in the $600 - $800 range.

There are some ways to reduce the load and increase performance on older computers. I have an article to that effect in my website.
