  1. Hi my computer has been doing alot of crashing even tho i have formatted.... and a new hard drive (160gb) which it only says 130gb on windows xp.
    Ive formatted my hard drive and installed windows on it, along with sp1 and sp2, and all the other stuff, like anti-virus, drivers.
    But now, it takes ages to load programs up, and delays between moving the mouse and scrolling down webpages, like it's lagging, when opening programs sometimes they don't load then about 20 seconds later then load all at once if i opened loads at once. Lots of lag when not loading programs but just looking around, moving the mouse, typing, just lags and delays. And when shutting down the computer it stays on "Saving your settings" for like 1 min then shuts down the computer. windows sometimes crashes, programs not responding sometimes :(

    I have no idea what's wrong :'(

    Hope you can help

    Sorry if i couldn't explain well :(
