I've recently had a new PSU installed and since then had my computer perform sporadically slower than it did previously.

For example, when windows first loads if I move my mouse the mouse lags. This same preoblem happens if I open an application or just intermittenty whilst using a program. If I play audio or video it will occasionally skip.

I've alreday had the problem looked at by the hardware guys here: http://forums.whatthetech.com/Strange_Slug...098#entry422098 and they concluded that my system is running at the correct temperature etc.

I've had it confirmed that there is no malware here: http://forums.whatthetech.com/Sluggish_Per...985#entry427985 and he recommended that I try this forum.

I am running Windows XP Home Edition on an Aries Pc System, AND Athlon 64 Processor 2.4GHz with 1GB of RAM.

Any help would be hugely appreciated as I am getting desperate now.

Did you install any new software when this problem started to happen?

Also, check your devices in Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter). Look for any "! ", "? " or "X" symbols.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
