Having problems with your Dell Latitude C400 Notebook ?

C400 Display problem related to Flash player

\015 I have a Dell C400 laptop I got used from the company I am working for. It worked fine (at my knowledge) before I got it but I decided to format the HDD for a clean start with clean OS update. I have 512 MB of RAM, Intel\302\256 Pentium\302\256 III Mobile 1200MHz and Intel \302\256 82830M Graphics Controller\015\012I installed Windows XP professional with all necessary parts and updates. I got all available updates from Dell Support including BIOS version A12. No other applications just a clean Windows.\015\012Everything is running perfectly until I installed adobe Flash player plug-in.\015\012After installing the flash player, browsing is terribly slow and if I run a flash video the computer halts intensely and the CPU usage up to 90%(IE) . After running webpage with Flash all video based or graphical process uses high CPU power and are working really slow.\015\012If I uninstall the Flash player and reboot, the computer starts working normally again.\015\012I am a computer technician myself and I really think I have tried everything, for example:\015\012- Try several versions of flash player (7, 8, 9.0.47, 9.0.115, 9.0.124)\015\012- Try different versions of the display drivers (the newest driver packages from both Intel support and dell support)\015\012- Try different types of browsers and browser plug-ins (IE6, IE7, Firefox, Goggle Chrome)\015\012- Tried the Hardware Acceleration troubleshoot in the Display properties.\015\012None of these have lead to any success in finding a solution.\015\012I even learned that the Intel \302\256 82830M Graphics Controller appears as two adapter in the Devise Manager (Intel says its suppose to be like that) and if I disable one of them (the one market as function 1) the flash player works fine and I can watch a flash video for about two minutes and then the computer shuts down without any warning or security log or anything.\015\012All my testing have lead me to the conclusion that this must be some sort of a conflict between the Flash player plug-in and the video-controller (driver or VBIOS). It is like the Flash player uses up all video memory and it does not get dumped again until I reboot the computer.\015\012I have been searching the Web for any clue of what can be wrong without luck, I have read what there is on bouth the Dell Support, Adobe Support and Intel Support with out luck\015\012\015\012Yes I have considered using the computer without the Flash player plug-in, but that is getting more and more difficult for there are so many websites out there using Flash.\015\012\015\012Can anyone help, this have been hunting me for weeks now\015\012\015\012Thanks in advanced \015\012Tumi\015

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
