I loaded moh airbourn and everything was fine. I played the game for a few days and then decided to move the computer to my bed room. Started it up and connected it to the internet. Played for 2 hrs and went to work. came back started to computer up and everything was acting weird and extremely slow. I did various virus scans and also reset all the computer components. Finally in a desperate attempt I reformated the hard drive. That did not work as I found out when it took 6 hrs and 12 minutes to fully load windows xp sv2. I then took it down to a local shop and they mentioned that it could be the motherboard's north bridge processor. At this moment I am trying to find out what is causeing the problem. I sent it to computer to another local shop, one thats more reputable, still no response except.. whats your cd key so we can load windows and check the components out.

When I built the computer I did so on a glass table. I also used rubber gloves and took everything nice and slow.

these last few days being without a computer.. its so, so, hard. The more I use my computer the less time I have to spend with her.

Does the system boot into XP?

If so, you need to focus on errors reported in Event Viewer.

And...I would try to run chkdsk on the drive in question, using the suggestions in the following link for running ckdsks from My Computer/Explorer:
