I just built a new computer. It's the 6th computer I've built, so I have some clue as to what I'm doing. Here are the specs: AMD64 3500 Western Digital 300GB hard drive K8 Triton MOBO 2GB dual channel DDR RAM The problem is Windows is running extremely slow. It took almost two days for Windows to install (and I'm not exagerating). And now that it's finally installed, it takes the computer a couple hours to actually start up. When Windows finally does start up, it takes an enormously long time for it to do anything. I'm not sure what could be casuing the problem. In CMOS, everything seems to be working as normal. it sees all the RAM, it doesn't register any problems with the CPU or the MOBO. My guess is bad RAM or CPU. I originally thought it was the hard drive, but tried another one with still the same problem. Even tried a different video card as well. Right now the only devices connected to the MOBO is the hard drive and the CD-ROM. Does any one have any ideas?
