Hey guys, i have this laptop here

its a packard bell with a m-amd 2600+ processor, the processor is clocking at 516mhz :tazz: this cant be right can it?

it has 224MB of ram and SIS 740 internal graphics.

It was running windows XP so slow its unbelievable, so i assumed it was a virus and format reinstalled XP.

Its still running exceptionally slowly.

Any Ideas?

Most likely it's not enough memory slowing you down. Use Task Manager to tell what your memory commitment is. If it's over your available memory you're writing and reading from the disk and that slows things down a lot. Most laptops underclock the CPUs to save battery. The CMOS ciruitry used has a very flat speed/power characteristic curve.
