- Inbetween the Windows XP loading screen, and the actual desktop displaying, there is a larger delay than there used to be. It stays black for approximately 10s whereas it used to only remain like this for a second or two.
- When playing the only game I own, counter-strike 1.6, the game seems to lag very easily. A function called nightvision which colorizes the entire screen for instance makes my latency go from 30 to over 100. The video card is admittedly a piece of junk but it's worked before.
The only hardware change I have made lately is installing a (again admittedly cheap) Firewire controller card which I recently tried removing but still the problems persisted.
Is there any way I can root out this problem, or at least find the source of the problems?
