Hi, My partner has just bought a lenovo thinkpad as the netbook i gave her started to die. Part of the problem was that the net started to be really slow so she assumed it was the wireless card. so she got her lenovo and installed chrome. Now it appears that the slow page loading has resurfaced on her new lenovo. here is what i have tried: - checked Chrome under the hood stuff and disabled DNS pre-fetching feature - cleared cache and browsing history - installed firefox (same issue slow searching/loading). -Then i used speedtest just to test the connection whilst doing it simultaneously on my asus zenbook. Here is where i noticed something of interest. -- the download speeds and ping were fine but on her machine the system took ages to connect for upload and then her upload speed finally ended at 0.05 Mbps (mine was about 0.49 Mbps iirc ) What could be causing this issue? i have installed spybot s & d, adaware and AVG on her machine (dont know if she did initial scans). This is the machine she got. http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/...000252:&smid=7DC88DC46B8321F759F36448171B2BD2 cpu: core i-3 ram: 2gb OS: W7 64 HDD: 320gb Please help as i persuaded her that the lenovo had the best value over her other 'netbook' choices. Thanks in advance.
