ive got an old duron 800 with 256 mb ram which surfs just fine, its even got on board video, the missus likes it better than the other 2 rigs for some crazy reason, its reliable and hasnt ever been turned off!! not even a reset! just get the duron going and you will be sweet.

Ehhh, do you mean u don't get the "press any key to boot from cd" message?
Is the CD/DVD drive as first boot device in that BIOS?

Otherwise just ignore this post

well I just come home from school and I left the computer priming to see if it couldn't take long loads or if there was a temp problem and I also used windows restore function and restored it to as early as I could find. It has now been priming 10h no problems and temps never go over 32c maybe there was just a windows probem I'm going to keep having it priming to see if it reboots or anything
