    Hi folks,

    If any of you have bought, or are supporting anyone who bought one of
    the Inspiron 1150 notebooks from the Warehouse, you may notice a
    slowdown after installing SP2. The following comes from the Dell site
    and will fix the issue:


    Inspiron 1150 Performance Loss

    After installing Windows XP Service Pack 2 on your Inspiron 1150 with
    an Intel®
    Celeron® processor, you may notice the speed of the computer is
    reduced considerably.

    Dell has provided an update to fix the performance loss.

    To obtain the update and installation instructions, refer to Dell
    Knowledge Base
    article:

    "Dell™ Inspiron™ 1150 Update for Microsoft® Windows® XP Service Pack
    2"

    Cheers,

    They say that it sets the CPU to the lowest speed... I believe it is a
    conflict with their "Quickset" software.

    I installed it on mine and it now works fine ;^)
