Hi folks I have AMD 2400 Asus mainboard and I am using XP Pro.The problem I have is that my pc goes really slow, Like 20 to 30 secs to load some things.It seems to start when using out look express.This as happened before and I had to format and reinstall XP.Now its doing the same again, it just goes worse until it no longer usable.Any thoughts anybody?
This happened to me problem was conflicting firewalls, if you have zone alarm or norton or Mcafee then switch off XP,s own firewall
Did your HD light stay on?When mine stops responding the HD light is on
How do I switch of XPs firewall?
Do you use Spybot S & D and Ad-Aware to clean out all the nasties you collect. More importantly do you have an AV program which you update regularly? TR
NO! Nothing at all.When it happened the first time I thought it might be the HD, so I changed it and now it playing up again.It just gets worse and worse.IT just hangs and the HD light stays on.It fine when its first installed.Gios
It just happend again now.I have diskeeper running on auto.It just started to defragment and its gone really slow the HD light on and every few minutes I can hear it working.Gios
Are you saying you've got no Anti-Virus program running?
Check to see if any errors reported in: Control Panel -> Performance and Maintenance -> Administrative tools -> Event viewer Check in the System and Application tabs.
Yes I have no antivirus at all.I have Norton 2004 but its not installed yet.
I have looked in event viewer, but what am I looking for?Its got loads of errors and warnings = atapiGios
