I use XP-Pro SP2..I have found that the Installion of your OS is Targeted from the SYSTEM Set-Up Program..
The HDD just uses a Flat-Cable[DATA]for connection to the Motherboard..
..I would take NOTES concerning the TWO-> SYSTEM Set-Up Program INFO's..
Are there HDD Acoustic's Settings..that might need some match-UP..??
Pagefile Size....have you made some change..??..the Defragmentor Program gives GOOD-eyeball on the HDD..that little GREEN-area..should maintain some CONSTANT-area on ther HDD..that GREEN-area will change its dimension pertaining to the PAGEFILE Size..I will use this "small" View in Disk Defragmentor as a QUICK-look see into my OS vs. HDD..My UN-Movable Files(Green)/maintains a section in the LEFT of the VIEWING Window..and will SPLIT into two parts if I corrupt my OS..or shows a Broader appearance if I use a LARGE Pagefile..SLIMS down for a Smaller Pagefile...
That's about all I could consider..
I never mess w/the OS...its the First Place MY PROJECT begins....
and its 100% compliance thru-out is a must in DVD-Video Creation.
Ok, just recently I took a hard drive out of my computer and put it into another, seeing how it had all the upgrades I needed. Everything works great, except no sound (which is easy to fix, just gotta get the driver) but thats impossible because it takes me 10 minutes to load one page and I'm downloading at 59 BYTES per second! I know dialup is slow, but not that slow. Anyway, I'm using the same exact modem as I was before, a Zoom external V 0.92, and I would get 5 kb/s easy on it with my other computer. I'm guessing something is just set wrong, but I have NO idea what it is or how to make it better. The strangest thing is, I was connected at 42.6 kb/s when I downloaded that slowly. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I can't do a thing on the Internet now....
BTW here are my specs, if that helps at all:
AMD Sephron Processor, 1.79 Ghz
1 GB RAM
35 GB free space
