Nice! I like old machines, that is exactly the same CPU as the PdLab build servers :).  They have less RAM tho ;).  For debugging this, trying running pd in the cmd.exe shell.  I would download the .zip package and unzip it somewhere.  Then go to Start -> Run -> cmd.exe, and do:

cd path/pd/Pd-extended 0.43.1-extended/pd/bin
pd.com -stderr

Then you should see all of the stuff that normally going to the Pd window going to the cmd.exe window.
