Solution for repeating character problem.

Hi All,

After having a repeating character problem with a guest OS, I googled for solutions. From that, I saw many have had the same problem, but noone had a solution. I found a solution for my system, and hope this helps others. (My apologies if this is common knowledge, but I couldn't find a soltion on this forum.) It seems this problem comes up on dual core processors often.

Pertinent Facts of My System:

  • Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor

  • OS: XP SP3

  • Guest OS's: Fedora 13, Ubuntu 10.04

*_Solution:_ *

You can read these documents:

I installed the AMD processor updates which can be found at the following links

I also added the /usepmtimer option in the boot.ini file (C:\) (though I think one of the AMD updates does that, also.

Hope that helps anybody with the same problem.
