I've looked everywhere. Please! I really hope someone out there can solve this puzzle for me. Until today my computer was pretty fast, fast for a 1.3GHZ with 256MB RAM. There didn't seem to be much lost time when launching any of my apps. The slowest of which is Borland C++ Builder, but It'd fire up in about 8 to 10 secs. I upgraded to an AGP GeForce TI 4800 SE 8X from an old ATI Xpert 128 PCI card. The difference is unbelievable!!! I can't even open a text file in less than 10 seconds! IT's atleast 3 to 4 times as sluggish as it was! This is killing me! I keep having to stop typing so the words on screen can catch up with me! This is what I've done so far! I've flashed the cards BIOS, and updated the Drivers. I've updated the Mobos AGP and other drivers. I've totally disabled hardware acceleration "Advanced" ,on the Settings tab in Display properties. I set the card to disable AntiALiasing, and to optimize for performance. I haven't flashed my system's BIOS because the latest revision was in 2001, so I don't think it'd matter anyway. Does anybody have any idea what could be the problem????
