Now I Can't Watch Movie Trailers

I don’t like watching tv shows or movies on my computer because my TV screen is way bigger and the quality (even of VHS) is way better than the divxes and the mpas and the avis and the whatnots. But I do enjoy watching trailers because they’re short and small. But now I can’t do that because I’m running on Windows ME and the new Quicktime doesn’t support that. Can anyone help me install a new operating system? Pretty please with cat drool on top?

  1. I’ve got a copy of WinXP Home you could upgrade to (providing your computer’s got the mad skillz, yo).
    What kinda ‘puter do it be?

  2. Here’s what Microsoft says you need for WinXP Home;

    •PC with 300 megahertz (MHz) or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233-MHz minimum required;*

    •128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)

    •1.5 gigabyte (GB) of available hard disk space.*

    The asterixes point to a note that says that’s for just Windows – if you put other stuff on, you’ll need more.

    You, as I recall are right on the edge of all this. Your options are to, at the very least, getting a new HD for installing XP onto – if you install overtop, it’s going to blow up on you eventually. Better would be to spend money on upping the RAM, but given the age of your machine, that RAM is probably not cheap. At that point, buying someone’s old machine for a couple hundred suddenly looks like a better idea.

    Just laying out the options for you. You have WinXP Home standing by, it’s a question of machine now.
