Slow New Computer
Posted on 2006-11-19
I have bought a new "P4 Gigabyte - 856" motherboard with 3 Gigs of new Pentium4 LGA processor plus new Geforce 5200 VGA of 128 mbs..
I have installed all these to my old P2 case after removing the old power supply with a new one.. !
After i have installed windows the first time,, the computer was freezing and restarting every few mints... I then restarted to the BIOS and checked the TEMP of the CPU, it was over cloaked, then I removed the fan and fixed it again, then it started to work good..
After a while, the computer was slow when login to windows and sometimes it was doing some check on disk and it takes about 30 mins to finish the check...
Now the computer works slow, not like what it should really do,,, I have a computer at the office .. the specs as follow
Celeron 2800 mhz , 256 mbs ram ,, 80 gigz of HDD 100mbs of built in VGA intel chip..
This computer works faster than my computer which i guess should be really a good computer with the above specs..
The reason why i have opened the question in this TA is becoz i believe 100% that the prob is related to hardware, coz i have formatted the computer 3 times, and the HDD is also working well ... there's no Any Bad sectors nor any other issues with it..
one thing i note and it was the heat of the Aluminum thing on the top of the VGA, the heat of this small piece was very high and i couldn't keep up my fingers on it...
So does it have anything to do with a second fan?? the computer has only the CPU's Fan ....
Any help is much appreciated..
