Does everything run slow or just games.  I wonder if you need to enter the bios and ' load performance defaults ' if your underclocking your processor by mistake... Or if its just games you may need to look into updating the drivers for the video card.  Have you downloaded all the windows updates?  Did you install the mainboard drivers?

everything runs slow. i havent installed any drivers due to it needing an admin password ,and i will also check in the bios and check my clock speed.

ill try that and get back to you if it still doesnt work . 

thanks for now
