toshiba satellite laptop VERY slow.....
running XP home version
tried reloading xp, no improvement, still slow, almost crawling....
exchanged hardrives (30GB) with another identical laptop
that operated normally. slow laptop with new hardrive
(working normally) now still runs slow, other laptop with
other harddrive stills runs normally.
Analysis: Hardware problem with 1415 toshiba satellite laptop.

tried everything, checked memory, cpu, bios settings, all normal

finally friend said, take out battery, and disconnect power cord(charger)
to cut all power, lets look inside again. still didn't see anything wrong.

plugged in power, battery still out, computer runs normally NOW!

put battery in, computer STILL runs normally, fast like it used to!

analysis: buss lines/control lines on motherboard to memory/cpu held low or?? by voltage, once voltage removed, (battery out, not plugged in) lines could float, charge dissipated, AND computer back to normal speed!!!!!

woo hah!
