I have just reformatted XP pro. Upon installation of windows my computer was running decently ok. After installing the geforce 8 series drivers and rebooting the computer was extremely slow. I then installed my chipset drivers and rebooted, same problem. Why would it just go slow after installing the video drivers? Also, what other critical drivers i am lacking that may be causing this and how can i fix it

EDIT: Spec spec if it helps:
Core 2 duo E6750 2.66
Geforce 8800 GT
4gb ram
Mobo: Gigabyte P35-DS3L (rev2.0)
Sound blaster audigy

Go into your control panel and click on the system icon. Under the Hardware Tab click device manager. Anything with a Yellow Exclamation mark will need to have the drivers updated.
