Nspire SlowDown Help
« on: May 10, 2012, 09:17:06 pm »
I'm posting this for Yeong, apparently HBjr. needs some help ;D

He recently got back his nspire(84 plus keypad) and it runs extreemly slow. Do you know what might be wrong?

The Nspire 84+ emulation is running slow? Hmmm..... :P

But anyway, does this mean significantly slower than usual (not compared to an actual 84+)?

Is it like 2.5x slower? In some rare occasions, I ran into that one issue where my 83+SE suddenly started running at 5 or 6 MHz instead of 15 due to some OS bugs or ASM program bugs (such as MirageOS 1.1 back in 2002-03)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I don't think I do, other than making sure no document is running and maybe do a reboot.

This may or may not be relevant, but my Nspire CX CAS was slow when it was closing folders in the document browser. I eventually found out that it didn't have an OS installed...

err....you can't browse folders without an OS installed.
Anyhow, it's extremely likely to stem from one of two possible sources:

problem inside 84+ image
problem inside nspire OS emulator

So first, try doing a RAM clear inside the 84+ emu. That can help a lot. If that doesn't help, try an Archive+Ram clear. Following that is just TI being fail.

Edit: @nlightened Did you mean the computer document browser?

Yeah, that's part of the OS. You had to have already had an OS installed to browse documents. However, that doesn't mean updating the OS wouldn't help some problems.
