  1. Hello. As the title says, I have a very low-performing system, and I wanna know if there's a way to sped it up...This system used to have an Intel motherboard where I ran IAA, and I don't ever remember the computer being this slow...

    The attached file contains a full Everest Report of the system's details. Thank you for your time.

    I've done that already...I'm looking for any other reasons (like hardware) as to why this computer is so slow...I've included an Everest Report to see if anyone can find areas that could improve in performance...
