Hello Rik,

With XP, left click on the Start menu and then on Control Panel. Then double left click on System.

The System Properties window opens and will tell you your version of Windows - eg XP Service Pack 2.

Further down it will tell you about your processor - eg AMD Athlon Dual-Core Processor 5200B.

The processor speed - eg 1.79 GHz

The amount of memory - eg 2.87 GB RAM.

Depending on your machine it may add a few more details as well.

When finished, close the window.

*********

Also left click on the Start menu and then on Run.

Enter dxdiag into the Run window and left click OK.

If it asks to access the internet you can say no. If you say yes you get more up to date information but only on obscure stuff you're not interested in right now.

The DirectX Diagnostic Tool window opens.

The front page has information about your operating system, processor & memory again and various tabs along the top reveal other information - most of which more than you need to know.

But Display will tell you about your graphics card - eg NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430.

And the graphics card's memory - eg 512 MB.

Select Sound for information on your audio system.

You can even save a copy of all the information.

Go back to the front page by left clicking the System tab at the top left.

At the bottom right is a button titled Save All Information. left click this and it creates a plain text file of information which you can then save where you want.

Exit the window when finished.

**********
And there you have the basic stats of your PC! Very Happy

@ Rik,

Just had a look at the system requirements for Poser 8:-

* Windows XP or Vista
* 700 MHz Pentium class or compatible (1 GHz or faster recommended)
* 512 MB system RAM (1 GB or more recommended)
* OpenGL enabled graphics card or chipset recommended (recent NVIDIA GeForce and ATI Radeon preferred)
* 24-bit color display, 1024 x 768 minimum resolution
* 2 GB free hard disk space (4 GB recommended)
* Internet connection for Content Paradise
* Windows®️ Internet Explorer®️ 7
* Adobe®️ Flash®️ Player 9
* DVD-ROM drive (physical product only)


It's not as demanding as i thought, although I suspect they are being a bit generous in terms of acceptable speeds.

I'd be interested to see what your specs are and how they compare against the above.

Hello Rik,

You should find that adding some RAM memory will help. Probably quite a bit...

While your processor is plenty fast enough, 1 GB of memory is a bit light for graphics work like Poser.

If you want to avoid buying a new machine (And having to learn Windows 7!), adding more RAM should be comparatively cheap & easy.

I recently bought 2 GB for £53.

If you do decide to upgrade you need to buy the correct RAM modules for your motherboard. Do you have paperwork that tells you what motherboard is in your PC?
