For 5 years my computer has worked slow and buggy. I replaced the hard drive and that didn't fix it. Everything just looks glitchy, high quality video files play in slow motion, it takes time to copy files... Anybody know what part or chip on the motherboard would be causing this?

Hello,

How much memory or ram is in your system?

When you installed the operating system did you load all the graphics drivers?


Please use the following link to provide us with information about your computer so that we can assist you.

How to Publish a Snapshot using Speccy

The speccy will provide us with most of the information we will need, except the make and model of this computer. Please include this in your next post.

Another consideration with a computer this old is how clean is it inside. An accumulation of dust will cause overheating which can slow you down as well.

512MB RAM

Graphics drivers are installed correctly. I thought it was a graphics problem and I bought and tried 3 different video cards and the problems are displayed the same.

I have to admit that I looked at the content of the text and didn't until just now look at what the file was that you were loading. On of the most common means of getting infected in peer to peer downloads, torrents is way up there on that list.

I'm going to request that this topic be moved to the Am I Infected? What Do I Do? forum. If this is the result of an infection, this is the proper place for it. If it turns out to not be the case, then they will kick it back to the proper forum to address the issue.

No its definitely a internal hardware issue because like I said it has been like this for 5 years. I run Malwarebytes, Avast, ComboFix and AVG regularly its definitely not a virus.

I hope you aren't running both AVAST and AVG at the same time.
