Default Mini 10 freezes - 12-05-2009, 01:58 AM

i have the same problem that everyone seems to have with the Dell Mini 10, running XP. After many calls to Dell and even re-installing my OS and all the software, I found out that the reason that its so slow and freezes when I try to restart or shut down is due to the memory ram being soldered to the mother board. I suggest for everyone to call dell and complain about this issue and see if they can resolve it.
I will be calling tomorrow.

So let me get this straight, your Mini 10 is slow and freezes on you because the memory is soldered to the motherboard!?!!

I'm calling BS on OP!

I would say that you either have software installed that's causing slowdown and freezing, or a hardware issue with your Mini 10 and need to get it looked at by Dell themselves.

I bought 2 at the same time.. One Was great and the other froze
a lot right out of the box. after I installed a new drive it was GREAT!

The Dell guy that already had to replace my high def screen on one unit
due to a bad pixal. (at my home) he says the drive was probably bad as well.

Since then, both have W7 Pro on them with new 500 gig drives. (perfect)

so we are to assume that it had NOTHING to do with the memory being soldered on correct?.....the whole idea of that is so totally absurd!!!!!!!!!
sure hope that the OP realizes that.............

sounds like a loose or bad connection somewhere, keyboard, touchpad, HD, screen, etc. etc.

ram can be checked using a ram checking utility, and possible but highly improbable that solders are bad.

if it's still under warranty, have a tech come out and check everything out.

It freezes here.
I found that sometimes Windows XP ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery causes conflicts. Just try to disable this on Device Manager. It works most of the time.

I didn't try to change the battery yet...
