hey all, i have a problem that is bothering me. I decided to upgrade my moms computer, it was an older IBM netvista. I upgraded the motherboard with new ddr400 ram and a Intel P4 2.4GHz processor. I did not change the CD drives or the HD. When I first booted the newley upgraded computer i ran the XP repair and that seemed fine but now the computer is just as slow as before and has tripple the speed and memory. It seems like the HD is working really hard, is it possible I need to format the drive and reload XP or is there something not compatible with the HD itself? Any solutions are greatly appreciated. Don.
