Good day,

Over the past few months, I have seen the performance of my Dell Inspiron 1545 worsen. This happened after I got it's battery fixed and bought a new charging cable.

Turns out, there's a constant memory leak (the memory usage goes all the way to 98% - about 2gb on the process and the 1gb left is used by the basic system processes - and remains there for a while) on the process "svchost.exe" every time the laptop is turned on and every now and then after some time of inactivity.

While I'm aware that this process is important and will always consume some memory when I boot the laptop up, the fact that I have to wait between 40 minutes and two hours to be able to run programs with normality ay random times concerns me a bit. Wonder if there's a way to fix it other than waiting.

What did you do to 'fix' the battery ? What version of Windows are you running ?

I'm typing this on a 1545 with 4GB ram and an upgraded Cpu and it runs Windows 7 and 10 quite well.

I bought a new one + cable. Windows version is 7 Professional. Also, the laptop came with 3GB ram (A 2GB card, a 1GB one).
