i assumed virus at this point, got a new D-link gameing router that makes the rest of the computers in the house rock and roll. snow white helped me get rid of a bunch of junk and the web pages were pulling up after about 10 seconds so thought that was ok.
got on the slower computer here and it pulled the pages up instantly. so i decided that i would just completely reformat the computer and that would end all this foolishness. so i reformated and restored the comp to factory settings. when i do that it gets better for a few days then its back to the same old waiting for pages to pop up. it never gets back to how it was before.
my ram shows up at almost a gig like 960mb versus the 1 gig that should be there (i belive that 64mb is goind toward onboard videocard). the comp is reading everything right as far as i can tell. i have like 93% free space on the HD after the reformat.
sometimes the page will load up fine and then LOCK Up and refuse to respond. some pages will always be not responding. the comp will not download most stuff, such as windows updates.
the comp is a HP a1310n with a 1.77GHz AMD Athalon 64 processor 3700+ and i belive its got a 200GB HD
any ideas guys?
ok while posting elsewhere for possible upgrades i looked back at the SYSTEM tab and it now says i have a 2.19GHz processor......?
