That is a extremely Old computer.


That thing will cry if you try to run anything from today on it.

Better to leave it in the basement and let it die.

Seriously man. 23 MHz. Time to let it go.


If you need a techincal awnser?


Corrupt OS is the first thing that comes to mind or just dead parts.
