:tazz: Hi everyone

my first post here. Well I'll get straight to the problem maybe.

(I have updated the subject so the new issue is explained further down and my english isn't all that good cause I'm swedish so don't laugh :) )

I bought my laptop last year. A Fujitsu siemens amilo k7600. And i thought that it performed badly almost from the start. The performance was ok, but I expected more... Anyhow, I bought a Wireless card to it (a d-link dwl-g650 54 MBit) and as soon i inserted it to the laptop it started to perform extreamly slowly, and if I used something in the USB ports the performance would be even worse...

I didnt use the wireless posibilities that much, cause of the lack of performance. Anyhow this got worse cause i often would have the laptop on for a great deal of time with software like bitlord. After a while the performance got even worse and bluescreens started apearing and the laptop could just turn itself without notice. I thought that this could be a virus so I searched the harddrive for viruses and spyware but nothing. I installed XP several times and i would get some performance back at the beginging, however after a short while the laptop would start to perform badly again...

what do you guys think this is?? I would realy apriciate your help..

is there any good software that can check these kinds of errors?

Memory for laptops is pretty expensive so they often come equipped with less than adequite memory. Open Task Manager and compare your memory commitment to the physical memory. You should have about 25% more physical memory than your commitment, absolute minimum. If you're running heavy applications, you should have twice as much.

My laptop has an AMD XP-M 2800+ processor and 512Mb RAM... The performance gets horrible and even the mouse movements are laging... I dunno if the memory thingy would help but ill try that... however i suspect that the memory could be damaged or something.. The computer can get pretty hot sometimes...

could you do a couple of things for us?

first
can you download everest home edition and post the log from it

second
run this program to test your memory

third
after using the computer for a while...and after putting some load on the system....reboot it and enter your bios setup (usually by pressing either del or f2 during boot) and look for the PC health section (or something to that effect) and post the temps and voltages shown in that screen

The cpu id is taken from the data on the cpu which tells the computer what it should be, the speed it says it is, is the actuall speed it measured it performed at and labled appropriate to the speed it detected, i wouldnt complain your cpu is probably just running a little fast which is no bad thing.
Thats how it usually works anyway it could just be a fault in the speed detection as well run a program called cpu-z if you want to double check its a very reliable program, also laptops often throw up odd things when a progrma tries to detect the system properties laptops are all configured slightly differently when compared to a pc and the hardware is very different as well.

Dont worry about it.
