Hi, I have a few problems with my PC. My systems specs are: AMD Athlon XP 1800 Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 Motherboard. 256MB of RAM 80GB Seagate HDD Nvidia Geforce FX5200 Video Card 320Watt Power Supply 2 Realtek Network Cards The problem i have is Windows XP starts up really slow i get a blank desktop for a few minutes before all my icons appear. But when i disconnect my network cable it starts up normally. I play Final Fantasy XI on my PC, everytime i try to start it, its really slow i can't even get the game to start up from the playonline viewer because everything runs so slow. Usually this was only happening now and then, now everytime i try to start i have this problem. Sometimes i would play the game for a while and the screen would start locking up but not frozen everything would just start going very slow, making it unplayable. Most of the time i would just restart my pc and everything would be working ok again. Everything else seems to be working ok in my pc except it seems a little slow. I have tried 2 different motherboards and still the same problem, also tried different network cards. I thought maybe there could be a problem with my video card but why would it start up so slow with my network cable plugged in, without it plugged in it starts up normally. But still when i plug it back in everything is just really slow when i try to play Final Fantasy XI. I also ran the seagate tools diagnostic for my hdd, everything seems to be ok. I am wondering if my cpu could be the problem. Any help with this would be appreciated, i really don't know what could be wrong. Thank you.
