Hello, 1st post.... anyways.. I have a Dell E1705 Inspiron Dual Core 2.16 GHz Intel processor 2Gb of RAM and a 256 ATI Radeon Mobile Video card... Problem is after I log in and try to play a game (or sometimes do nothing) my processor speed will drop to 1000 MHz and it is painfully slow to do anything. I can't think of anything that would cause this. It just "happened" one day when i booted up. Should I re-install windows? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks guys.
