Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
Okay - Wierd problem. Dell D600, using Windows XP SP3 with the integrated NIC - a Broadcom 570x Gigabit controller. Obviously, it's working right now. But at any given moment my computer will grind to a halt and only process 1 second out of every 6 seconds or so. During the 5 seconds of inactivity, it's truly inactive - no mouse movement, nothing moves, sounds are interrupted, etc. BUT, keyboard and mouse movement IS tracked because if I type something or move the mouse during the down time, the system will ''catch up'' and process my keystrokes, etc. So here are some of the things that I've done: I've removed the card from the list of hardware and re-installed it. That didn't fix it - problem reoccurred within an hour of using the internet. It never occurs if I don't have the ethernet cable attached or when I use the integrated wireless card. (You'll probably tell me to just use the wireless, but the hotel that I'm at for weeks at a time only has wired internet.) The last time that the computer went in a ''seizure'' I patiently deactivated the integrated NIC by going to the network connections, right clicking and selecting disable. I immediately regained the full use of the computer, but within 1 minute of completing that, the computer gave me a blue screen of death and rebooted before I could read the screen. Once rebooted and after checking network connections to verify if the NIC was active, I posted this message - so it's not heat related either. So what else can I share to help you help me figure out what's going on?
I have the same problem also with my laptop, in my opinion this issue is related to hardware as i reinstall my windows ,but i still have the problem, i will be glad if someone can help me with this
