Hi all, I recently bought a used dell off ebay... but one of the main things I find is that it is INCREDIBLY sluggish... The processor is a T7200 and I have placed 4GB or RAM into the machine... I also upgraded to the 500GB HDD myself
The HDD I've got is a 5400RPM version but that wouldn't make it this slow... I have a Sony SZ1XP too and that can play youtube HD videos no problem... The Dell seems to jerk a lot and doesn't even play the HD videos properly... I can't even play 3 SD videos off youtube at any one time or it starts to jerk... This machine feels a lot slower than the VAIO SZ which I find quite unbeliveable. I mean it has the X1800 so should have half decent graphics.... Is there anything in the bios that I should check to see if anything is wrong with the machine?
I just purchased one aswell from ebay. i have not recieved it yet but reading this is disappointing. I also had a sony vaio SZ and thought that the m2010 having similar specs should perform nicely. What are the temps like? that can severyly degrade performance.
