Hi, I am wondering if anyone can offer any advice re a computer issue I'm having. In the last week, my computer has slowed right down big time. For example, it takes around 7 minutes to completely boot up... but it also appear that I can do no more than 1 task at a time... if I have media player running, which it doesnt do smoothy anymore, and try and say, open MyComputer, the sounds stutters big time, and slows rights down
As you can imaging this is major annoying. I had happened previously (couple of months back) and I reinstalled windows which seemed to resolve it. But is has reared its ugly head again... Inbetween the last time and this time, I have upgraded my ram from 512 (1x 256 and 2x 128 ), using crucial, and upped it to 896 (1x512, 1x256, 1x128 )... I should point out that this combo worked fine for a few weeks after making these changes so I doubt it is this.
I am running xp, on quite an old machine but its normally fine. I have run windows defrag and scan disk, and now a more powerful defragmentor but still no joy...
Anythoughts or suggestions would be massively appreciated as at the moment this is almost useless! I cant even play music without havin an issue!
Cheers in advance to anyone!
