My computer has been sometimes running ether very slow or normal speed. When I turned on my PC just now, it ether froze at the black screen, after the loading of windows popped up or toke forever to load. I saw my second CD drive flashing. When I reset it loaded windows but felt slower then usual.

Computer status: I am using a Windows XP, Athlon 1800, 1.54ghz, 512 ram, nVIDIAG-force4.

You might also try to run chkdsk /r from the Recovery Console of the XP CD...and then defrag the system drive.
