Answers :

I am going to make a suggestion, and am not quite certain you will take this as a solution, but it is the best course of action for your laptop. By today's standards, this is on the low-end of laptops, but still very capable for normal tasks. It is only suited for Windows 98, maybe Windows 2000, at best due to the specifications. Considering this, I want to suggest installing Linux on the laptop instead. Linux is an operating system like Windows, does all the same things, and is faster on older systems because it is more efficient. Ubuntu Linux is one of the most popular distributions, as it is used by Dell computers. Here is a link to the ISO cd download:

http://mirrors.ccs.neu.edu/releases.ubuntu.com/intrepid/ubuntu-8.10-desktop-i386.iso

If you need help burning the ISO file to a CD, then use this link:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto

Lastly, here is a link to the official documentation page for users coming from Windows to Linux:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwitchingToUbuntu/FromWindows

Try this, you won't be disappointed, and you will be amazed at how fast the computer runs and how beautiful the linux operating system looks...it is not that hard to use, and your daughter will catch on quickly...oh, by the way...Linux is free!!
You will need the CDs that came with the laptop to restore it back to the original settings. Does it boot up to Windows?
