hi there, I'm experiencing problems with my advent 8109 laptop, i.e. taking forever to burn disks, sound distorted rather like a dalek, and was wondering would this point to a memory or chip problem? I've reloaded the drivers from the harddrive, but to no effect. Does anyone have any info?
I'm running XP. Regarding the writer, what was taking say 8mins to burn before the probs is taking over half an hour now - was wondering if the memory was struggling to buffer the info. Playing music or video through media player or other applications the sound is distorted and stuttering.
You don't mention how long you have been working witrh the current install of XP. It may well be that, over time, your OS has become clogged and thast all you need a is a fresh install of the system. Save all your data, settings etc (you should do this reguslaly in any case) then you should b e able to reset your system to when you first bought it.
