I have a Dell Latitude D620, running a duel processor 2.1 GHz with 2 G of memory. I just replaced the hard drive (wd 250 Gb). Running windows XP Professional
The problem is that, the system is running like it is going through molasses. It took all morning just to get the OS installed. Just to get the installation files copied to the hard drive took about two hours.
When I pull up the task manager it shows that one processor is running at 100% all the time while the other one is nearly idle. This doesn't seem right to me. I set the bios to it's default settings. I didn't see anywhere in the BIOS about any settings for the processor.
I would like to do a BIOS update, but am afraid to because I do not have the drivers installed and the system is so difficult to run that i just about can't install the drivers.
Any help on this issue would be appreciated.
