ant1 Posted October 16, 2004 Report Share Posted October 16, 2004 Three days, three install attempts, an inch from the ledge. Bought a new, bigger 120g hardrive to complement my almost full 60g. Decide to do a fresh install of XP as it's 1.5 years in and starting to chugg. This is my first windows install by the way... So I manage to install xp pro on the new hardrive, copy over all my important documents from the old hardrive and wipe the slate clean. This is when I realize that the install has not gone so good, when I play my music it hiccups, I fear a bad migration but it's not the mp3s but my system jumping to 100% whenever I do any menial task, open a program, drag a window... Well decide maybe it's a driver or the install went bad, so reinstall....anyways to cut it short I'm on my third install, have done everything by the book by what I can tell and am at a loss. Ran norton av, spybot,adaware. I believe it's a hardware problem , now that I am on the lookout the slowdowns are noticable right off the bat. I basically need help trouble shooting or a barbeque lighter. Is there some kind of program that could diagnose the computer, saving me switching out parts trying to single out the problem. Any help appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
