Brand new Gateway P4 2.4 super slow performance
Posted on 2003-12-08
Just installed a Gateway P4 2.4Ghz E4600 as a host for a parking control application. Right from the start, it's been slow to respond to mouse and keyboard events, had numerous file system problems, messages about hard drive problems from the BIOS on bootup, etc. Drive was removed and showed file system corruption in another PC, was re-partitioned and W2K re-installed back in the original PC. Slow response still present. It seems like the Interrupts/Sec metric is abnormally high (Avg. 1500). Could this be a problem? If so, how can the device generating the interrupts be identified??
