Question Kotor on laptop

I have read the Sticky topic by Jae and to be honest I am not that completely savvy on the technical side of computers. My computer is getting old and I don't want to download or do something that will "fry" my computer.

Pretty much the game runs extremely slow. I have tried shutting off all the graphic options in game and lowering most other settings. I have tried running the game in 800x600 resolution. I have also shut off all the programs running in the background as well as anti-virus and firewall.

Is there something I can do to get it running better? I won't mind if the game crashes from time to time, there's a save button that can help against that!

Here are my specs.

Compaq Presario V2000
Mobile AMD Sempron
Processor 3000+
1.79 GHz, 384 MB of RAM
Operating System Windows XP Home Edition

Not sure about the graphics card.

Your RAM is barely scraping past the minimum requirements. I'd suggest upgrading that to 512MB (or higher if possible). Not only would it help KotOR run faster, but anything else you run as well.

As for downloading things from here, as long as it's in a post made by a mod or it's part of one of the fixes in the stickies, I'd say there's a 99.99% chance that it's safe, so don't worry about downloading it. I've downloaded probably 9/10 of it myself trying to get KotOR to work and nothing's happened to my system yet.

Thanks for your help. Downloading was my biggest concern since my laptop is about 4 years old. I don't have the money to get a new computer right now so sabotaging it is the last thing I want to do.

I've run KotOR with 256MB of RAM, so it's possible. I doubt that you'd want to spend money on upgrading a laptop that old. Let's see what else you've got:
