Default Windows XP problem. Please help !!

Hey everyone,

Got a problem with my folks computer, but from what I remember the specs are

Celeron 1.3gz (or mz??)
256k PC133 SDRAM
40 gig. hard drive

--1. When using applications, such as Word, when I type it takes a second for the text to appear on screen. I check the task manager/ cpu usage thing and it showed that even when I just moved the mouse left to right the CPU usage meter would jump to 100 percent. Now, I am not that good at troubleshooting computers but it seems to me that that is a problem.

--2. Also, with the same computer I tried to put in a PNY 512 PC133 SDRAM chip (after removing the 256k chip) and the computer would not start up, just gives that beeping sound. Is that a problem with the chip or is it something else.

Thanks in advance.
