I just got my new XPS-M1730 running Win_XP. Everything is fine, my conversion process is done and went perfectly. The only problem is when I type on the keyboard, it is very slow for characters to appear on screen ! On Word, Excel, Internet and even on this blog ! Anybody aware of this problem on that machine !
I am running the wireless dell mouse (bluetooth) but not the external wireless dell keyboard, but using the integrated actual keyboard of the machine.
I have tried an external usb keyboard: same problem.
Running Win-XP in safe mode solved the problem !
So, it seems that there is some software not running well on the machine. It would be nice to know wich one.
UPDATE-I: PCMSERVICE.EXE (DELL MULTIMEDIA) HAS TO BE DESACTIVATED... PROBLEM SOLVED. IT SEEMS THAT DELL MULTIMEDIA (3.5) IS FIT FOR VISTA AND NOT WINDOWS-XP. DELL SUPPORT ADVISED.
UPDATE-II: USE TASK MANAGER FOR TEMPORARY (AFTER BOOT) DESACTIVATION - USE MSCONFIG (RUN) FOR PERMANENT DESACTIVATION (AT BOOT)
