A dual boot menu does not slow down a machine. Never has.
But to fix this is a piece of cake and discussed at least weekly in this forum. But be sure you know which to remove from BOOT.INI.
Hint: Type EDIT BOOT.INI into google.com for more detail.
But once you fix that, the machine should still be slow.
Thanks - one more question if i may?
Thanks for the help and sorry for asking this question as i have just seen how many posts are posted about this.
I've been reading about boot ini thing and it seems way over my head and i think i may end up breaking my computer as i've read it can be risky doing this.
My computer was so fast before and i can't cope with it being this slow - if it's not the dual boot thing then i must have done something wrong when i was faffing about trying to install the op system.
Would wiping my hard drive and installing windows again (once and only once) solve the problem do you think?
Sorry for being a pain...
Or System Restore to a date before the "event".
Details are very slim but if I had my XP CD (not some restore CD) I can rebuild a blown boot.ini in seconds.
As far as risk goes, all you need to do is remove the menu item you are not using.
Thank you, i've done it!
My graphics seem a lot better now but like you said my computer is still really slow, don't know why. Think i might just throw the thing out the window!
Ok about slow. Things we can do but...
Need more details.
With each post you see those words in red? Please tell make and model and maybe I'll find a driver package for your machine.
Ok...As you might have guessed computers aren't my strong point so what i think the make and model of my computer is might not actually be what the make and model is???
AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3000+
Sorry, but there are multiple makers of the chipsets that
Host said CPU. You may see Nvidia, Via or SIS names.
Make and model are crucial to getting the right package for your motherboard support.
