Aspire XNavigator case with 500w psu
Asus AN8-SLI Premium Nforce4 Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
Duel Asus En6800gt 256mb ram video cards in SLI
WD Raptor 10,000rpm hdd SATA
2gb Corsair DDRRAM
Mitsumi 8in1 floppy drive
Lite-on cd and dvd burner
The system went together without any major problems and boots properly through the BIOS
and then boots from the Windows cd. The problem begins with the windows files copying to the hdd.
It took 8 hours for windows to complete the install. I have never had a problem like that before and thought
that the slowness would be resolved when I installed the motherboard drivers and video card drivers.
No such luck. The system is running extremely slow or programs are not responding at all. I had another hdd handy and tried to do another clean install on that but it is taking hours and hours for the windows files to load.
The cpu usage is always at 100%, so some thing is wrong and I can not figure out what. Could it be a motherboard problem? System information shows cpu and ram in good order. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP
