hmmm.......went into Hardware manager and noticed a yellow icon by my 2nd IDE channel; it says it doesn't have enough resources to work properly! I'd guess this is my HDD.....so, I went in and disabled some of the items using the same type of memory (IRQ): standard floppy disk controller, SATA controller (didn't even know this comp had), UAA bus for HD audio, and a COM Port (not even on the comp?). Going to see if it does any better; if so, what do I need to do? I didn't think RAM is an issue (1G installed), so what else do I need to up?
Intel Celeron D 2.8Ghz
80G Seagate Baracuda 7200.7
GeForce FX5500 (PCI) OCed to 300/500
am I missing anything?
Now: Toshiba Sattelite L35-S2161 running Ubuntu :)
