Slow Performance after Format

Hi,

I just formatted my P6116CD and now when I go to boot apps, it takes forever to boot. The title will come up and then take a bit then go blank then finally after 2 minutes the app will start. Netscape and Claris Emailer are the two I have on my system now. I have no 3rd party ext. loaded, I just reformatted. I put the newest drive setup driver 1.5 on and it still does the same thing. I can't even run speed disk beta 14 on it anymore. I am using HFS+. This is the first I have ever encountered this problem and it is driving me crazy trying to fix it. Thanks.

You say that it was slower than before.  What OS version were you running before?

I was running OS 8.1. It is only when apps start the boot process. And the mac at startup. Shutdown is lightning quick and quits on apps are too. Just when you boot an app. the 2 i am using now are claris emailer and netscape 4.0.5 the title appears, drive goes dead then after a minute the drive cranks up and starts the app slowly.

Did you add/remove any hardware (memory/cache/etc.)?

No, I haven't touched a thing. Just reformatted. I even reformatted again and went back to standard HFS and it still does it. I am beginning to think that my HD might be going bad.

Hmmm...The 6100, by itself (without modification), IS pretty slow by today's standards.  You said that there is no third-party things installed, and that's probably why it's so slow.

Did you EVER have Connectix's Speed Doubler, Motorola's MathLib, PowerFPU, or any other acceleration software installed (before the format)?  I have a 6100 (in fact, I'm typing on it now), and Speed Doubler and MathLib SIGNIFICANTLY improve the 68K emulation.  Thus, my 6100 is a speedy little kid.

I hope this helps.
