not sure if it's the correct subforum, but i'll just post here.
recently my bootup has been significantly slower. after bootup, i checked my transfer rates with HDtune, and i got like 1.8mb-2.2mb/s transfer rates on my western digital sataII 160gb drive. that didn't happen for my spare data drive though, it was normal at around 58mb/s. i used the hdd diagnostic tools to check but SMART didn't spot any errors. did a full boot-up scan also nothing found. however, after "warming up" the PC for a few hours, the drive seemed to speed up back to normal levels. divx playback was slightly laggy though. what should i do next?
