if i were you i would start hunting down atleast 2 usable gigs of ddr ram 768 mb 128mb video card has already defeated you

Im sure that was one of the issues it had and noone bothered to fix it but pretty much if it is on board video you have no chance of playing any games to slow to even get it going

If you purchase a decent AGP slot type card that runs 256 mb even 512 might yeild some results that is where i would start first ram and the video adapter

I picked up one of these 6200LE for an old P4 machine I used as a Linux box. It works pretty well, and is DX9 so it's probably current enough to play some older games. It will be much better than what I am assuming is onboard graphics.

As for Windows 7, you will really want to bump up the RAM if you can. 2GB is probably bare minimum for a smooth experience. You can get by with less, but it will be a poor experience. Lots of disk thrashing and slowness...

the AGP card and DDR Ram then you should be ok the ram will make a big differnce cause the card will use the system ram and back to square 1

So grab the ram and the card and you should be smooth sailing from here on out
