Low Framerate with empty scene

Hi everyone! I recently got (for free) an old computer with Windows ME. I have installed Blender 2.35a and it opens and everything but with a completely empty scene (not even the cube) I get around 5 frames per second when move around the view. Stats are below:

Window ME
Intel Celeron 700MHZ
P2L97 mobo
ATI 3D RAGE PRO (4MB of VRAM)
384MB of RAM (1x 256, 1x 128)

Anyone have any idea on what the problem could be? I was able to run Blender 2.32 on an iMac G3 with 355MHZ, so thats not the problem. Could it be the video memory? Or something else?
Thanks for all your help :slight_smile:

PS : Please dont tell me to get a new computer. I know perfectly well that I “get what I pay for.”
