Stuttering Tecra A7

I have reinstalled to factory settings many times and i have the same problem every time. I have a Toshiba Tecra A7 PTA71A-012003, it is my notebook from where i work someone installed Vista on it before I got it and I was given the factory settings disk and told to change it back to XP Pro 2002 service pack 2. Now my notebook stutters and the video stutters aswell. I need another solution apart from reinstalling back to factory settings as that just does not work!! and on top of that my boss has now got my disk so I can't and I can't get any help from work it's like worldwar 3 as we are in the middle of a take over and everyone has lost their minds however I need my computer working as people are despately relying on me. PLEASE CAN SOME ONE HELP ME :(

Re: stuttering Tecra A7

It sounds like you havent installed the graphic drivers for video card. When you installed xp did you formatt the hard drive and do a clean install?
Drivers for the graphics and chipset can be found on the makers website.

I need more speed

I would max out my memory before i would buy another processor. if your mem is maxed out at this time, try XP smoker. its a really good optimizer geared for windows. it will make your cpu 3 times as fast as the current processing rate you are experiencing now.
