Can large magnets in manufacturing plant causing computer to be slow?
So i have a bit of a odd situation.
Have a customer with 2 computes. If these computers are moved to one building 1 they boot fast in like 45seconds and everything runs great. If they move them to building 2 they are horribly slow. Take 15+min to boot.
In building 2 there are 2 magnets. 8FTx10FT VERY LARGE AND POWERFUL. Is it possible these magnets are effecting the HD in these computers causing them to be really slow?
If it is possible how could we test this to verify it is the problem. Could i run a read/write speed test on the computer when it is in building 1 and re-run when it is moved to building 2?
-If it is the magnets causing the issue is there anyway to build something around the tower of the computer to protect it from the magnetic field being generated?
