    st an FYI if anyone is looking for a notebook anytime soon.

    I recently got a Dell Vostro 1500.

    Core 2 Duo 1.6ghz
    2gb ddr667 ram
    120gb hard drive
    dvd burner
    128mb Nvidia 8400M GS video card

    Soon as I started using it I ran into an issue where it would "pause" pretty often. I would open a program and it would just sit there. I initially thought it was Vista freezing but realized I could move the cursor and what not and if I let it sit for a few minutes it would progress forward an dopen the program properly.

    I did some searching around and found out it's an Intel driver issue with a system filed called iastor or iastorv. I found this by reading through the event logs and then using good old Google. Had to go in and delete some registry settings and now it runs like a champ. I'm very pleased with the performance of this thing... NOW.

    So just in case you or someone you knows runs into an issue like this.

    Honestly it's very basic.

    - Open Regedit (search "regedit")
    -Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE double click SYSTEM, then CurrentControlSet and then Services.
    -Under IaStor and IaStorV delete the "Parameters" branch completely.
    -Restart
    -?????
    -Profit

    Obviously you should back shit up before trying this and create a restore point if you use system restore.
