I recently installed Windows XP Pro on my sister's Acer Aspire One before I gave it to her for her birthday. Now, its running terribly slow. The processor maxes out when I open the task manager. I've never seen a system move so slow. I have another Acer Aspire One with XP Home on it (too lazy to upgrade) with identical specs and its running fine. I was watching blu-ray rips off it last night on a 26" monitor w/no problems.
Is it possible that by installing from USB it has done something differently that could account for it being such a resource hog? Or is there some sort of incompatibility that I was not aware of with the Acer Aspire Ones and XP pro?
The system specs are:
1.6Ghz Intel Atom N270
1GB of DDR2-667
Intel GMA945 chipset
Windows XP Pro SP2 - Vanilla (my sister hasn't installed anything on it yet).
Any help would be appreciated.
