Motherboard problems?

  1. Hi all,

    I just recently bought another computer for work and was built with Asus motherboard (P5VD2MX SE). I have been quite loyal to their brand. I have had it for just one week but there have been so many problems with it and Windows XP. :(

    For instance:
    1) keep getting this wms.exe error msg when trying to shutdown.

    and...

    2) When trying to open attachments from outlook email it takes like 1 minute for word and excel files to open. Kind of hangs and then 1 minute later opens. On the outlook it will in fact say "not responding" but then reverts back to okay once the word or excel file opens.

    I have never had problems with Asus and am wondering if it could be the hardware that is causing the problems?

    Computer Config:
    P5VDMX-SE
    P4 630
    1GB RAM
    2x 150GB HD running on RAID

    Any suggestions on what is wrong?

    This may appear unimportant but you didn't mention the power supply.

    The PSU is a very overlooked component in a PC. How many watts is yours, and what brand is it.

    It's well worth a look at the psu; what else is in your pc, as it can all add up in power consumption?
