Hi all,
Just purchased a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop - Intel dual Core / 2 gig ram / 160 gig HD. When I type there is a slight (but annoying) delay between keyboard & screen. Also when scrolling down a spreadsheet, it will slow right down, the catch up in one jump. Dell say possiibly a software issue and recommended a PC restore, but this seems very drastic. Has anybody else encounted this problem??
Thanks in advance

I don't have a laptop, but what is so drastic about doing a system restore - assuming you are using XP, it only takes a couple of minutes.

They probably meant a restore from factory installation discs/HD partition, which is a bigger deal than System Restore

Dell did say a restore back to factory installation configuration - is this a daunting task - I've never done it before??

Thanks in advance.
