Xi 1554 - Stuttering/lag in Windows XP Professional

Postby Zarunil » Sat Jun 09, 2007 6:03 pm

Hi,

I've just bought an Amilo Xi 1554 notebook. It shipped with Vista Premium installed, but I'm a gamer and have heard bad things about Vista. Besides, I'm so used to XP Pro that I figured I'd downgrade anyhow.

So I've installed XP Pro by making a bootable CD by following the instructions on Driver Heaven and the installation went fine.

I've had some trouble finding drivers for XP Pro, but eventually I found and installed them all. I used MobilityDotNet to modify Catalyst 7.1 drivers to make them compatible with my X1900. The rest are vanilla drivers, either downloaded from Fujitsu-Siemens or from the part manufacturer.

Now, onto the reason why I post here:

My notebook is having lag spikes. Whenever the CPU useage rises, even to the levels of 20% of max, my system lags. I first noticed it because my music would stutter. When I move the mouse around while the CPU spikes it stutters too.

I'm thinking the harddrives are causing this problem, but I'm not sure how to solve it.

I should probably mention that if I try creating a virtual drive using Daemon Tools, the laptop locks up for about 30 seconds before returning to normal. The file I tried mounting has not been mounted.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Fujitsu-Siemens haven't released any drivers supporting XP Professional. Any idea where I can get some unofficial drivers, or if the XP Home/Media Center Edition drivers would work?

Use any XP or MCE driver you want. They are the same anyway.

Sort of. I disabled the harddrive that was causing the problem. Now my laptop runs without a hitch, but I'm 120 GB short. :?

Not the best solution, but the only one that worked for me.
