And a bug shows IDE channels to be in DMA. To be sure, you change it to PIO, OK it, go back in, set to DMA, OK it. No reboot needed.
But that's a software issue. What hardware is suspect?
Not told is if you have some WinModem. These are notorious for turning the fastest machines into hand calculators.
This is killing me! I am running CPU XP3000 with 1gig of memory; windows Xp SP2. Why is it a gig doesn't help me do more than one thing at a time?
If I am making a CD or something and go online to pass the time away, everything comes to a crawl. It runs like I am using 32megs instead of 1 gig.
Any ideas? I have two 512meg sticks, one 2700 the other 3300..TIA
