I got a new laptop. A Sony VAIO model VGE-AR630E. Its a duel core 2.0GHZ
with 2G of memory. I had a HP6000 omnibook single cpu 850MHZ with 256MB of
This laptop seems to be running slow. I've had time that when I clicked on
an icon to start an pplication that I thought that I didn't chick the icon.
But after several seconds the application would start.
On the old laptop if I right clicked on an excel file it would open excel
and load the file in about 2 seconds. On the new laptop donig the samething
using the same .xls file it would take about 10 to 15 seconds o open excel
and load the file.
I did find that if I started excel from the start menue and then loaded the
file it only too about 4 seconds.
Is this a problem with Vista or what. I guess I'm to used to XP or 2K.
Any help would be appreciated.
