[Pi 1505] Help speed up a crawling Pi 1505

Postby dstamat » Sun Mar 20, 2011 11:26

Hello everybody,

I own my Pi 1505 (Core 2 Duo T5200 @ 1.60GHz) for about 4 years now. I use it mainly for browsing - nothing computationally intensive. No real complaints. However lately it has really slowed down to a point where clicking on a window may take more than 5 sec to respond. I do not understand why. More than half the RAM seems to be always available and CPU load does not go above 30%.

I have already upgraded the memory to 2GB and the HDD to 320GB 7200rpm. The BIOS is updated to version 1.14C, the latest available at the Fujitsu-Siemens site. All drivers seem to be up to date.

Any ideas? What may be causing the slow down? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Dimitris

There is high chance you have some weird network issues... or something is wrong in configuration. Browser tries to resolve issue for some time (those 5 sec) and then gives up and continues what it started. It could be a reason for some incorrect software (un-)installation, configuration and so on.
I would recommend you to re-install the OS.
If you are in doubt, you can try Live Linux CD (there are a lot of different options available) and check whether problem still persists in fresh system, not overbloated with your previous software experiments.
