Dells (dont ask), dual quad core, 4gb ram, gb NIC, yadda yadda
for some reason. They take FOREVER to loadup a max 6 file that my previous computers (dual processor, 2gb ram) dont seem to have any problem with. During a render farm run or just a loading up a file. 10 - 15 minutes just to load it. NIC isn't showing anything, neither is the processors.
The new laptops I got? dual cores. wont even do it. They reach the 20 minute load limit and STILL haven't loaded the file. Its complicated but much slower older machines are having NO problems with the files.
Any ideas (all machines are XP, max 6)
couldn't use max 9 (which i have) because 9 doesn't have all the 3rd party materials up to date yet.
