Default Re: Xp taking forever to load.. Car Computer.. help!!

I've never used a car pc, but as for laptops, I know that they drop the processor speed when there is not enough power, slowing it down dramatically. ( I have a 1ghz Thinkpad, and I know that when its on battery, it drops down to about 300-400mhz, according to bios and windows xp system info)

Again, it seems like you know that there is enough power to the system, but that is what I am coming back to if it works fine when plugged in inside but not in the car, (the variable seems to be power source...) maybe try getting one of those inside plug to car plug adapters and seeing if it just isn't getting enough electricity.

One thing to try is to leave it in the car and run an extension cord to the car, see if its just the car or is really a power issue.

just thoughts on things i would try....
