How is DMA? Link to article about.
Thanks , but it didn't help ///
I don't have a PIO problem. All muy devices are working in Ultra DMA mode.
I have an older image of my boot drive (c:). When I restore it, things are doing great. but after few days, the problem returns ...
any more ideas ?
Few days? Odd. All my downloads finish in less than that.
My biggest download was PCLinuxOS and at 600 MB finished in an hour. Maybe you need to recheck your connection speed?
Ha ? , couldn't see the connection ...
I don't have a slow downloading problem. The computer is getting slow while downloading ... downloading is going fast. CPU is about 50% but the download speed is great. Something is consuming my CPU when I download. I have no idea what ....
The clue may be the "days" statement.
Some applications are known to get buggy after a few days. I offered my example as to why something is odd here. Maybe you are downloading P2P stuff which all I can write then is "good luck with that." Take it back to who wrote that app.
I do use P2P software ....
funny, but I'm using it for quite some time now ... why suddenly it should effect ....
Also, even when it's closed, "normal" downloads and normal browsing consumes CPU ...
Could I have a trojan or some other hidden process ? are you familiar with a software more detailed then the task manager showing hidden processes ? . SOMETHING is eating my CPU , how can I tell what ????
Here's the answer.
Contact the author of your P2P app and ask about the bug.
Addendum. Torrent + PC = slow PC?
Go figure. It's not just you complaining here. What I'm telling you is this is par for the game. If you feel it isn't then take that bug back to the author. Why duplicate what others are writing or complaining about?
A different line of attack...
Maybe it is that your CPU is busy waiting for swaps between memory and the hard drive as you have low physical memory available. Sysinternals has a "Process Explorer" tool that does a good job of expanding on what the Task Manager does though I think you may need to think that the bottleneck is outside the CPU and may be something else that the CPU is waiting on and thus as it waits it'll take up some cycles to check if something is done.
Just an idea to consider...
well , at least I found the process taking CPU ..
Yeah , Process Explorer revealed the process. DPC is the name (deffered process call).
Great. now what ?
What the heck is that and why does it give me problems ?
One link about this
Systinernals forums has a thread about this that may be of interest.
Another point is that in downloading a file there is some networking stuff to be done and so it isn't like the computer is doing nothing that you may be overlooking here.
well I'll be damned .....
My Nvidia GEForce 6800 is the cause ????????
Just browsed some entried in that forum, they all have 6800 ....
I'll keep reading and let you guys knwo what happened ...
thanks a lot ...
ok ... it seems ok for now ...
Downloaded the latest Nvidia drivers. Things looking smooth but I'm after reboot with no P2P.
Will activate it and see tomorrow morning the results ...
will keep you posted.
Good Morning ..
well , everything looks perfect. P2P is running , and the computer works smoothly.
The only mystery is what happened suddenly to crap things like that ... if the drivers were old it should have happened long time ago since I didn't update the drivers for quite some time now ..
well , a mystery.
Thanks alot guys.
