My computer was getting really slow, and it was starting to freeze and stutter. Eventually it wasnt able to run windows 7, so i reformatted and it is still running extremely slow, skipping, and studdering. Also, everything goes Not Responding for about 5 seconds. For example, it takes 15 minutes to open Internet Explorer.

When someone talks to me through their mic I here "this is a teeeeeeeest" when it should be "this is a test"
Not sure whats going on i tried the following:
Reformatting, Defrag, Disk Cleanup, Check Disk, Checked the BIOS.
Another key note is that windows 7 64bit worked fine for 6 months before this problem, i upgraded from Windows Vista 64bit.

Computer Specs:
4 Gigs Ram
500GB Hard Drive
Nvidia 9800 GTX+
Intel Quad Core 2.4Ghz
please ask me any additional questions, I'm not the best with computers and i would love some help.

Hi, there

Well if you have already tried all these steps: Reformatting, Defrag, Disk Cleanup, Check Disk, Checked the BIOS and if you still have problems with the system being slow and sound not being heard firmly i will have to recommend to reinstall WINDOWS 7 clean installation and once the OS is installed plz check for all the drivers and install all the drivers like Motherboard drivers, chipset drivers, Audio/Video drivers also. :huh:

And by looking at your system configuration, there should not be anything to worry because it defenetly meets all the criteria that is requeired for 64 bit windows 7 Operating System.

If you reformatted/did a clean install...and still have problems...you probably ought to start thinking "hardware".

Run the appropriate hard drive diagnostic yet?
