Slow Dell M70
I have installed Debian in a Dell Precision M70 (Centrino 1.86 GHz, 1 GB RAM).
I have used a kernel 126.96.36.199 customized in order to allow SATA disks during
boot. I am working with the xorg.conf of
I don't know why but I can't install nvidia module, so my laptop now works in
graphical mode with nv. Since I don't need 3D accelerator it's not a problem
for me (or at least I think so!).
However something seems to be wrong. For example, when switching from
graphical mode to console I have to wait around 30 seconds, no error message.
Or when I open a PDF file not larger than 300 kB, some other programs get
temporarily stopped when I walk through the document. I think the problem is
related with graphical performance since I can load in Konsole a binary file
of more than 200 Mb and work with it without any problem.
Could somebody give some ideas of where should I look for solutions?
Thanks in advance.
