  2. Hi :)

    As ALVINE says...power settings....set to HIGH PERFORMANCE...

    All the best Brett :)
  3. control panel>power options, only offers when to shut down screen/hard drive and standby. nothing about performance. Hard drive has been formatted and new install of oem XP Pro so no dell software. cant find anything on dell site to help. any more ideas, thanks
