There were 2 issue with it.
1. #M1004 error at boot
2. Very slow performance
I have since fixed the #M1004 error by updating to the latest BIOS version
But the performance issue still exists, and makes using the entire computer nearly impossible
What is does from boot is run normally for 1-1.5 sec then freeze for 3-5. Repeating this process
I know this is not a Windows issue because I have reformatted the HDD and reinstalled windows. And also because the issue also happen when changing the BIOS settings or Reinstalling window.
Im not really sure what to check next now
So like I said:
- Dell Inspiron 8200 with 348MB of RAM
- Issue occurs before, during and after re-installation of windows XP
- Issue also is prevalent before windows begins to load
- Bios has been updated to latest version
I understand by today's standards it is a paperweight, but all she would like to do is play solitaire and other basic things.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
