When you installed Windows, did you remember to install all the necessary drivers post-install?
Hey everyone, I've been getting really frustrated with my current laptop lately. I wouldn't say the components are the best, but they're not terrible either. I have:
Dell Inspiron E1505 (from winter 2006)
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.00GHz
ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 - 256mb
Recent clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium
For whatever reason, it seems my laptop is just not performing as well as it should, and once did. Sometimes it runs just fine, other times it just doesn't, and all while using the same programs. Sometimes it will run fine with Firefox with multiple tabs open, Zune software playing music, and AIM. But other times it struggles to run Firefox with one tab. I even have Windows 7's theme as the basic one. I have recently defragged the HDD and cleaned out all the fans, and the problem still exists. If anyone has any tips at all (aside from just getting a new system) that would be great. Thanks.
