Re: slow loading win 2k on dell cpx laptop
How much ram is installed? Have you added new ram chips to machine lately?
That model has a distinct habit of the cpu becoming partially dislodged from the cpu socket. Check it first.
Remove ram chips and use a pencil eraser to clean contacts. CPx users claim Windows 2000 and Windows XP both have all native drivers for the machine, ie: they don't have to hunt down drivers as the os has those drivers built-in.
