Not the most tech saavy person, but capable enough. Purchased Lenovo Y510 w/ Vista HP and XP Pro OEM. Need XP for current server compatibility at my office, so did research and successfully downgraded to XP Pro SP3. I'm experiencing serious performance issues which I believe to be related to the Pentium Dual-Core CPU.
1) while startup is lightening quick and without issue, application opening/switching is impossibly slow
2) there is no indication that any of my applications are taxing my processor (ie., no blinking "busy" LED)
I have read other posts and extrapolated some troubleshooting efforts, including updating the BIOS, but to no avail. Please advise!
