But the NUMBER ONE GAFFE when people load Windows is they skip installing SATA or motherboard chipset drivers. I can't imagine why they do that. But it is Windows and it's maker has yet to address this issue.
Recently I got a new Desktop PC from my friend who assembled it for me.Te configuration is given below.
Processor: Intel Core2Duo E6600(2.4Ghz).
Mother Board: Intel Desktopboard DG965WHMKR
RAM: 2GB DDR2 667Mhz(1GBx2) fixed in alteranate slots,i.e
1GB in slot0 in channel one and 1GB in slot 0 in chnnel2.
Graphics Card: SAPPHIRE ATI RADEON XT1550 Series with 512MB DDR2 RAM.
HDD: 1 SATA 160GB(Boot Drive),configured as IDE in BIOS since
no RAID Drivers are loaded at the time of installing OS.
And is advised by Intel not to change it to other modes
which may cause the system won't boot,which is true.
1 PATA 40 GB HDD from the old system.All the Data and OS
is intact on this drive.
Configured to BOOT from SATA HDD,from where the system boots.
Operating System:Microsoft Windows XP Professional.
THE PROBLEM: The System is very very slow right from booting.Not only
it is slow in booting but also in opening programmes
such as Excel;Word etc.And also it is very slow in
executing a command.It shutting time is late.
I give an example.I have another PC with Intel Pentium4
1.7GHz with 1.5GHz 133mhz SD RAM havig a 4x AGP 64MB
Graphics card.When the two systems are powered on(first
the system with core2duo;later the system with Pentium4
are powered on,with a gap of min 5seconds;the time to
reach the Pentium4 system).But both systems boot at same
Even after booting when I tried to open a progrme, the
programe is not opened until the LAN connected icon
appers in system tray which takes more than a 1 minute.
Where as the other old system loads the LAN icon
immediatly and opens programs immediatly.The OS in the
older system is Microsoft Windows XP Home edition with
SP2.Both are genuine softwares and validated.Both OSs
are updated regularly and are upto date.
I am very much disappointed with this new system which I
expected to perform fast.With all the money spent on the
high end system I might have got two Pentium4 r PentiumD
higher end versions than which I have now and might have
been performed better.
I do't know what is causing the system to run so slowly.
I down loaded and installed system utilities from Intel
and run it.It shows every thing is perfect.I am not a
technical person to probe the cause.And my friend who
built this system for me is also unable to find any
problem.Every things seems to be perfect,yet the system
runs dead slow compared to that out dated Pentium4.
Please can any one help me to find out the problem.
Thanks in advance to every one who helps in finding a
solution to my problem.
With regards to every one
