No error messages as far as I'm aware.
As for the system make and model, I've just found out it was bought 2nd hand online, and no-one knows anything about it. The only distinguishing mark on it is a sticker on the front saying "Cyclone". According to Everest, the Computer type is "ACPI Uniprocessor PC"
Event Viewer? Nope, can't say that I have. Wouldn't know what to look for either.
As for this slowness, it's been like this ever since I've been here, and apparently, it's been like this ever since they bought it. No-one has bothered with it until me though, as no-one has used it at all until I started working here. It is affecting everything though. Hell, as I'm typing now, its taking up to 30 seconds for things that I type to actually appear on-screen (if I type at anything resembling speediness) during which time the computer refuses to do anything else.
The specs of the computer go, as far as I can see:
2.4g Celeron proerssor
1gb of Kingston DDR ram
MSI 651M-L (MS-7005) motherboard
SiS 315 intergrated graphics card
And when I said streaming video, I was probably being slightly misleading, the video would stream in fine, but actually trying to watch it once the video is loaded just, well, doesn't work.
