    SP2 & Slowness


    by ghlbeyerlein ·

    I was linked to the following article via’s Open Forum:,39020396,39165428,00.htm. I was wondering if anyone else was having problems with SP2.

    My mother-in-law’s Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop seemed to take the update to SP2 fine. However, when the CPU driver was updated, the laptop slowed down to ~300 MHz, instead of the 2.4 GHz it was rated at.

    The article above and the linked thread in it helped me resolve this issue. However, I wasn’t sure how widespread this is. Granted, the Inspiron 1150 probably is not deployed in many companies and agencies, but for home, student and teacher usage, this could impact quite a few people.

    Anyone else experiencing SP2-woes? Were fixes available? If so, care to share?
