well I upraded my memory from 256MB to 768 and the hdd from 20GB to 250GB.
The RAM works fine but with the HDD upgrade I have the following problem:
Every time I the HDD is working the CPU goes up to 90-100% and the whole laptop is VERY slow. Do you know why this could happen?
the new hdd is : WESTERN DIGITAL WD2500BEVE HDD 2.5'' 250GB ATA
the old hdd is : toshiba 20GB, IBM IC25N020ATCS04-0, ATA-5, UDMA-100
I used aida and did a few benchmarks which were I bit weird...
